Rengifo went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Mariners. The second baseman did a good job of keeping the line moving from the nine-hole in this contest. Rengifo came around to score on a David Fletcher triple in the third inning after leading off the inning with a double. The 22-year-old has appeared in eight games in July, going 9-for-22 with two doubles and three runs scored. Overall, he's hitting .271 with 24 runs scored and 19 RBI in 54 games this season, and he should see regular playing time with Tommy La Stella (leg) out.
Rengifo went 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and a pair of runs in Sunday's loss to the Astros. Rengifo served his role as the second leadoff man well, getting on base four times out of the ninth spot in the order. He'll end the first half with a respectable but not particularly noteworthy .260/.333/.379 slash line. He should have a regular role at second base for the next 8-to-10 weeks with Tommy La Stella out with a fractured tibia, so owners in deeper leagues could look his way for a competent fill-in at the position.
Rengifo will start at second base and bat ninth Sunday against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Rengifo looked poised to lose playing time when Andrelton Simmons returned from the 10-day injured list June 27, but the rookie's playing-time outlook appears stable again after Tommy La Stella was recently ruled out for 8-to-10 weeks with a fractured tibia. With La Stella on the shelf, the Angels will likely rotate Matt Thaiss and David Fletcher at third base, which should open up the keystone for Rengifo on a near-everyday basis.
Rengifo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics. Andrelton Simmons and Tommy La Stella will man the middle-infield spots in the series finale, resulting in Rengifo heading to the bench after a string of 11 consecutive starts. Though Rengifo has found success at the plate recently with a .341 average and five extra-base hits over that 11-game span, his opportunities seem likely to decline now that Simmons is healthy again after an extended stay on the injured list.
Rengifo went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in a victory over Cincinnati on Tuesday. Rengifo took Tyler Mahle deep with a 408-foot blast in the second inning to give the Angels a 4-1 lead. The 22-year-old struggled out of the gates this season but has had a productive June, hitting all three of his home runs this month while posting a .270 average and 10 runs batted in.
