Top Luis Rengifo News

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Gets fifth straight start

    Rengifo will start at second base and bat fifth in Sunday's game against the Athletics, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Tyler Wade is picking up a start in right field with Taylor Ward (arm) on the bench for the second game in a row, paving the way for Rengifo to man the keystone for the fifth straight contest. Rengifo has gone a respectable 5-for-16 with a home run in those past four games, so he could have a case for maintaining the everyday role at second base over Wade if Ward's injury proves to be a short-term concern. Wade has provided a .588 OPS on the season and likely profiles better as a utility player than an everyday middle infielder.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Swats first homer

    Rengifo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Saturday's 5-3 win against Oakland.

    The game was scoreless until the fifth inning, when Rengifo went deep to left field for his first homer of the campaign. The infielder added another RBI on an infield single in the sixth. Rengifo doesn't offer much power, but he's hit well so far this season, slashing .300/.382/.433 across 35 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Rejoins lineup Tuesday

    Rengifo (elbow) is starting at second base and batting sixth Tuesday against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

    Rengifo has been sidelined the past few days by a bruised elbow, but he'll retake the field for Tuesday's matchup with Texas. The 25-year-old is 4-for-14 with a double and three runs through seven games this season.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sitting out Sunday

    Rengifo (elbow) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Athletics.

    Rengifo was removed from Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader with a right elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch, and he'll be sidelined for at least one game. Tyler Wade will start at the keystone Sunday for the Angels.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Exits with elbow contusion

    Rengifo suffered a right elbow contusion in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Athletics.

    He was hit on the elbow by a pitch and later replaced by a pinch hitter. It sounds like Rengifo dodged a serious injury and is day-to-day going forward. He was sneakily having a strong season at Triple-A and briefly in the majors, so he could play up the middle somewhat regularly if he can continue to produce when he returns to the lineup.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Hit on elbow by pitch

    Rengifo was hit on the elbow by a pitch in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the A's and eventually left the game, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    He is now hitting .286/.375/.357 with zero home runs, zero steals and a 3:1 K:BB in 17 plate appearances since getting the call May 8. Rengifo is still just 25 and hit .313/.384/.525 with four home runs and two steals in 24 games at Triple-A prior to getting the call. Matt Duffy pinch hit for him.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Up with big-league club

    Rengifo was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday.

    The 25-year-old missed out on the Angels' Opening Day roster but will now join the big club with David Fletcher (hip) heading to the injured list. Rengifo has a .313/.384/.525 slash line with four home runs in 24 games for Salt Lake this season, and he should fill a utility role while up with the Halos.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sent down by Halos

    Rengifo was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

    Rengifo competed for a role in the Angels' middle infield this spring and went 4-for-19 with a triple, a double, three runs, two RBI and three strikeouts across eight Cactus League games. He'll begin the year with the minor-league club but will be one of the top options to fill in as utility depth for the Angels in 2022.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Connects on sixth home run

    Rengifo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run, a walk and a strikeout in a 14-1 triumph over the Mariners on Saturday.

    Rengifo homered in the second inning, singled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth for his fourth multi-hit performance this month. The long ball was Rengifo's fourth of September though he's been a bit feast or famine with no other extra-base hits this month and only three walks despite a decent .262 average.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Opens scoring with two-run homer

    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.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Homers, drives in three

    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.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Slugs homer Tuesday

    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.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Rejoins big-league club

    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.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Bound for minors

    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.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Loses work to Jack Mayfield

    Rengifo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

    Rengifo will remain on the bench for a fifth straight game and appears to have lost hold of the starting gig at the hot corner to Jack Mayfield. Both Mayfield and Rengifo will see their opportunities dwindle once top third baseman Anthony Rendon (hamstring) is reinstated from the injured list.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Records second homer

    Rengifo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk Wednesday against the Giants.

    Rengifo delivered a solo home run in the fifth inning to record his second round tripper of the season. He's seen consistent playing time since being recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on June 17, as Wednesday's start marked his sixth consecutive game in the lineup. In that span, Rengifo has gone 6-for-24 with two home runs, four RBI and five runs scored.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Logs sixth straight start

    Rengifo will bat leadoff and start in right field Wednesday against the Giants, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Justin Upton's (back) absence from the lineup will clear the way for Rengifo to receive his second turn in as leadoff hitter in four days. Rengifo will also be making his sixth consecutive start, including his fourth in a row in right field. He's gone 5-for-20 with a home run and three RBI over that stretch, but it's unclear if that will be enough for him to maintain a regular role ahead of Juan Lagares, who looks like Rengifo's primary competition for a spot in the everyday lineup.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Draws start in outfield

    Rengifo is starting in right field and batting seventh Saturday against the Tigers.

    Rengifo was recalled to the big leagues Thursday and started at second base during the first two games of the series against Detroit. He'll remain in the lineup Saturday, showcasing his defensive versatility in a move to right field.

  • Angels' Luis Rengifo: Recalled by Angels

    Rengifo was recalled by the Angels on Thursday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 24-year-old was recalled to serve as depth along the infield as the team remains without Anthony Rendon (triceps). Rengifo has hit well with Triple-A Salt Lake this season, maintaining a .331/.402/.569 line across 132 plate appearances -- good for a 138 wRC+.
