Angels' Nolan Fontana: Headed back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fontana was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.

Fontana only managed to collect one hit during his cup of coffee in the big leagues, so he was an obvious choice to ship back to the minors to make room for Tuesday's starter Parker Bridwell. Fontana could be back on the shuttle to the big leagues soon if he continues to walk nearly 15% of the time with the Bees, however.

Angels' Nolan Fontana: Draws second consecutive start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fontana will start at second base and bat eighth Sunday against the Marlins.

Since being called up to the big leagues Monday, Fontana has recorded only one hit in 11 at-bats, but he'll still benefit from his second start in a row with everyday second baseman Danny Espinosa in the midst of an extended slump. Once either Fontana or Espinosa is able to find some success at the plate, that player could end up taking on the bulk of the starts at the keystone.

Angels' Nolan Fontana: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fontana was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday.

He'll replace C.J. Cron on the active roster, giving the Angels some more versatility around the infield. Fontana has carried a .374 on-base percentage over 166 plate appearances with Salt Lake this season, but it's uncertain that he'll receive an opportunity to put his offensive skills on display during his stint with the Angels. He may just be asked to play a depth role at multiple infield spots.

Angels' Nolan Fontana: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fontana was optioned to the minors Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The 25-year-old had a nice spring, batting .270 with a home run and eight RBI in 37 at-bats. The Angels already have their middle infield set with Andrelton Simmons, Danny Espinosa and Cliff Pennington all healthy and ready to make the 25-man roster, leaving no room for the rookie shortstop. Fontana will start the year with Triple-A Salt Lake and should be the first to get the call to the majors should any of the aforementioned players go down to injury.

Angels' Nolan Fontana: Claimed by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fontana was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Tuesday.

Fontana struggled mightily at the Triple-A level, holding a batting average below the dreaded Mendoza Line and striking out in more than one-quarter of his at-bats, which led the Astros to expose him to waivers. That being said, the 25-year-old does possess some defensive utility across the infield and has a knack for drawing walks, but these positives likely limit his upside to that of a reserve at the major league level even if his batting average improves.
