Rengifo went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and another run scored in Thursday's 9-3 win over the White Sox. The 24-year-old continued his productive month, taking Reynaldo Lopez deep in the second inning to stake the Angels to a 2-0 lead. Rengifo hit just .151 through the end of July and was sent to Triple-A in August, but he's bounced back in September by slashing .290/.343/.581 with three homers and seven RBI in 10 games.
Rengifo went 1-for-4 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's 4-2 win over Houston. Rengifo gave the Angels a 4-0 cushion in the third inning when he connected for a two-run blast off Houston starter Luis Garcia. He also picked up an RBI earlier in the game with a run-scoring groundout in the first. It's been a difficult year offensively for Rengifo, who is hitting .183 in 111 plate appearances, but he's come alive over his last five games with a 6-for-16 (.375) run and a pair of homers.
Rengifo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Padres. Rengifo provided an insurance run in the ninth inning, swatting a solo shot to right field to give the Angels a 3-0 lead. The homer was his first since June 23. He had been struggling since his last long ball, entering Tuesday with a .140 average and only two RBI over his previous 57 at-bats.
Rengifo was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday. Rengifo was sent to Triple-A at the start of August and will return to the majors with rosters expanding for the final month of the season. The 24-year-old has a .151/.189/.233 slash line in 91 plate appearances this season but could receive another look down the stretch.
The Angels optioned Rengifo to Triple-A Salt Lake following Saturday's 1-0 win over the Athletics. Rengifo hadn't started a game since July 20, and because the 24-year-old switch-hitting utility man is still seen as having some developmental upside, the Angels will send him to Triple-A to receive regular at-bats. Los Angeles recalled Kean Wong from Triple-A to fill Rengifo's role as a reserve infielder.
