    • Angels' Luis Valbuena: Not in Sunday lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Valbuena isn't in the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The Angels will start Kaleb Cowart at the hot corner while Valbuena heads to the bench. Valbuena offered decent power this season, as he hit 22 home runs over 116 games. However, it came at a cost as he'll end the season with a dismal .197 batting average.

    • Angels' Luis Valbuena: Day off Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Valbuena is not in the lineup Friday for the second day in a row. Valbuena started the last 17 games at third base, but he is hitting just .155 this month, and manager Mike Scioscia decided it was finally time for a mental break. Cliff Pennington will man the hot corner for the Angels on Friday night.

    • Angels' Luis Valbuena: Homers in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Valbuena went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. Valbuena had been on a power binge in the second half, but he had cooled off in the 10 games (.111/.242/.185) prior to hitting his 21st homer of the season Tuesday. The slugging third baseman has been known to hit homers in bunches, so he is worth a look during the Angels' final four games of the season in case he provides an encore performance.

    • Angels' Luis Valbuena: Cranks 20th homer in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Valbuena went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Wednesday's victory over the Astros. The slugging third baseman's two-run shot off Mike Fiers capped off a five-run first inning for the Halos. Valbuena reached the 20-homer mark for the second time in his career, and while his batting average remains below the Mendoza line, his .909 OPS since the All-Star break has helped fantasy owners in the power department.

    • Angels' Luis Valbuena: Hits 19th home run
      By RotoWire Staff

      Valbuena went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Mariners. The home run was Valbuena's 13th since the All-Star break and 19th of the year. He sits against lefties, but Valbuena's role against right-handers is safe with Yunel Escobar (oblique) shut down again following another setback.
