Angels' Luis Valbuena: Cranks 20th homer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Heads to bench versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

As usual, Valbuena will head to the bench with a lefty (Andrew Albers) throwing for the opposition. In his absence, C.J. Cron and Cliff Pennington will hold down the corner infield spots.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Sitting against southpaw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena is out of the lineup Wednesday against Oakland, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

With the left-handed Sean Manaea headed to the hill for the A's, Valbuena will be withheld from Wednesday's lineup. Cliff Pennington will fill in at the hot corner and hit seventh in place of Valbuena.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Mashes 18th homer Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena's lone hit in five plate appearances Monday left the yard for a three-run home run in an 11-9 victory over the Athletics.

Valbuena has been on a mission to make up for a poor first half with 12 homers and 30 RBI in 38 games following the All-Star break. The 31-year-old is still batting a meager .227 over that span, but he is finally delivering on the "all" portion of the all-or-nothing label that has been placed on him as a hitter. Valbuena may not fit into every fantasy owner's plans, but he certainly has a place on teams desperate for a boost in homers.
