Angels' Luis Valbuena: Hits third homer in three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.

That's now three homers in as many games for Valbuena, bringing him up to nine on the season. Unfortunately, the power that he provides fantasy owners comes at the expense of batting average -- he's batting just .224 this year and has hit over .250 just once in 11 major-league seasons.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Goes deep twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI on Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Valbuena recorded his second multi-homer game of the season, ripping a two-run home run and solo home run in the fifth and seventh innings, respectively. He now has eight home runs on the season, but has struggled to make consistent contact thanks to a 32.2 percent strikeout rate. He has gotten regular at-bats with injuries to Zack Cozart and Shohei Ohtani, but provides mediocre pop with little else.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Could see boost in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena went 1-for-2 with a double and a pair of walks in Wednesday's win over Kansas City.

Valbuena has received a couple of starts at first base in place of Albert Pujols (knee), but his playing time may not come to end with the latter's expected return Friday. With Andrelton Simmons (ankle) being placed on the 10-day disabled list, the backup infielder figures to slide over to third -- with Zack Cozart filling in at short -- against right-handed pitchers. Valbuena is slashing a meager .240/.293/.383 in 167 plate appearances, and he is generally a home run or nothing type of hitter, but a semi-regular role could appeal to those in deep and AL-only formats until Simmons' ankle is healed.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Drives in two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena went 1-for-3 with two RBI on Sunday against the Rangers.

Valbuena provided all the offense the Angels' pitching staff needed Sunday when he pulled a two RBI double down the right field line in the second inning. Though he has now played a big part in two Angels wins in the past week, he continues to be a part-time player for the team and his fantasy value is limited as a result.

Angels' Luis Valbuena: Smacks two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena started at first base and went 3-for-5 with a pair of solo home runs, three RBI and a trio of runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Valbuena got the nod at first with Shohei Ohtani being absent from the lineup due to his impending start Wednesday. The veteran took full advantage of the opportunity, but these sort of power outbursts have been few and far between for the 32-year-old. Valbuena will continue to see two to three starts per week on days where Ohtani rests and a righty is on the mound, which limits his fantasy value to very deep or daily fantasy formats.
