Angels' Luis Rengifo: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Tuesday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.

Rengifo was one of four Angels placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, although the team didn't provide a reason for why they will be sidelined. It's unclear when the 23-year-old could be able to return to the field, but Rengifo was expected to compete for a depth role on the major-league roster during camp.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Could benefit from expanded rosters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo may make the big-league club if the 2020 season takes place with expanded rosters, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Prior to the suspension of play, Rengifo was expected to open the season in the minor leagues. That could change with expanded rosters, particularly given his ability to fill in at multiple infield spots and be used as a pinch runner. Though Rengifo succeeded in only two of seven stolen base attempts last season, he displayed more encouraging baserunning skills with 41 thefts in 57 tries as a minor leaguer in 2018.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Likely to open season in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is expected to begin the campaign with Triple-A Salt Lake, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Rengifo entered spring training with a chance to earn a roster spot as a backup infielder, but he struggled in Cactus League play, hitting .240 with only one extra-base hit (a double) in 25 at-bats. Per Bollinger, Rengifo is unlikely to break camp with the Angels; instead, he'll gain more seasoning with an everyday role at the Triple-A level.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Showing added bulk
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is "noticeably bigger" than last year, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Per Ardaya, Rengifo went deep four consecutive times during batting practice Thursday. The added muscle may come in handy as Rengifo seeks to earn a starting spot at second base this spring. The second baseman hit only 12 home runs in 467 combined at-bats between the majors and minors last season.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Trade to Dodgers shut down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo's (wrist) reported trade from the Angels to the Dodgers is no longer in effect Sunday, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Rengifo becoming a Dodger was apparently contingent on the original Mookie Betts trade involving the Dodgers and Red Sox on Tuesday, which ultimately fell through. It is unclear whether or not the Angels will resume trade talks with the Dodgers following this bizarre circumstance, but for now the 22-year-old returns to his original team and is set to compete with Tommy La Stella this spring for the starting position at second base.

Dodgers' Luis Rengifo: Sent to Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (wrist) was traded from the Angels to the Dodgers in exchange for Joc Pederson on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Prospect Andy Pages was also sent to the Angels in the deal.

The 22-year-old broke through to the majors in 2019 and had a .238/.321/.364 slash line with seven home runs and 33 RBI in 108 games before requiring wrist surgery in mid-September. Rengifo will have a difficult time finding a role in the Dodgers' middle infield with Corey Seager starting at shortstop and Gavin Lux, Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez competing for time at the keystone. Rengifo likely will be limited to a bench role with his new team, assuming he doesn't begin the season in the minors.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Shut down with broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday with a left hand hamate fracture.

There were only 10 games left on the schedule, so once it was clear Rengifo would not return this year it made sense to open up a 40-man roster spot in the short term. The rookie infielder got as much playing time as we could have hoped for this year (406 plate appearances), but stole just two bases after stealing 41 in the minors in 2018. He was worth 1.1 fWAR in 108 games as a 22-year-old, which could set him up for similar playing time again in 2020. Rengifo is expected to have a somewhat normal offseason, but regaining power for the start of the 2020 season is a concern, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: May not return this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on Rengifo's left hand were negative but it's unclear if he will be able to return before the end of the season, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

He will have a CT scan Wednesday to determine if the injury is severe, so apparently the negative returns on the X-rays may not mean much. Matt Thaiss and Taylor Ward could play more while Rengifo is out and David Fletcher should play almost every day at second base.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Suffers hand injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with a left hand injury and will undergo an X-ray.

He left in the middle of an at-bat in the seventh inning and apparently suffered the injury on his final swing. Rengifo went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts before exiting and was replaced by Matt Thaiss.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Exits Tuesday with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo left Tuesday's game against the Yankees in the middle of an at-bat in the seventh inning with an apparent injury, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

He hurt himself on a swing and it was obviously serious enough that he needed to leave immediately. Rengifo was 0-for-2 with two strikeouts before leaving.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Not in Saturday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays.

He is 7-for-31 (.226) with one home run and one steal in 10 games this month. David Fletcher starts at second base and will hit second.

September 11, 2019 04:56 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not starting Wednesday against Cleveland.

Rengifo hits the bench after starting six straight contests, a stretch in which he went just 3-for-21 at the plate. David Fletcher slides to second base in his absence, with Matt Thaiss starting at third.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Swats seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the White Sox.

Rengifo got the Angels on the board in the third inning with a solo shot to left center field. The rookie is slashing .240/.325/.375 with seven homers, 32 RBI and 43 runs scored in 99 games this season.

September 4, 2019 06:20 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not starting Wednesday against Oakland.

Rengifo sits for just the third time since the start of August. His .239/.356/.398 slash line over that stretch is decent but not particularly exciting. David Fletcher moves over to second base Wednesday, with Matt Thaiss starting at the hot corner.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Crushes solo homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Saturday's loss to Houston.

Rengifo launched a 425-foot homer to left center field in the fifth inning to plate the Angels' first run. The rookie is slashing .243/.329/.372 with six long balls and 30 RBI in 354 plate appearances this season.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Slams fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer and two walks in Tuesday's 5-1 victory over the Rangers in the first game of a doubleheader.

The second baseman smashed a pitch off Phillips Valdez 427 feet over the center-field fence to increase the Angels' lead to 5-0. The 22-year-old has hit just two homers since June 25 and has gone 15-for-60 in August. He also was caught stealing Tuesday and has just one stolen base with the Angels this season after stealing 41 in three minor-league stops in 2018. He holds a .245/.329/.369 slash line in 298 at-bats.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Playing-time outlook improves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo will start at second base and bat eighth Sunday against the Indians, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rengifo and Matt Thaiss have been fighting one another for regular duties in the Los Angeles infield lately, but there should be room for both players to earn steady at-bats after the Angels placed Andrelton Simmons (ankle) on the 10-day injured list Sunday. David Fletcher will fill in for Simmons at shortstop in the series finale in Cleveland, allowing Rengifo and Thaiss to slot in at the keystone and hot corner, respectively. Rengifo is hitting just .197 since the All-Star break with no home runs and only one stolen base.

July 29, 2019 07:04 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sitting again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not in the lineup Monday against the Tigers.

Rengifo will take a seat on the bench for a second straight game as Matt Thaiss picks up another start in his stead. The infielder is slashing just .249/.324/.371 through 67 games this season.

July 28, 2019 03:36 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Takes seat in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rengifo will sit for just the second time in the second half, ending a 14-game starting stretch in which he supplied a .639 OPS. The second baseman maintains a .249/.324/.371 slash line (89 wRC+) on the season, so he may not necessarily have a stranglehold on an everyday role. Rengifo and third baseman Matt Thaiss may be fighting for one spot in the everyday lineup, with leadoff man David Fletcher slotting in at the other position.

July 14, 2019 12:56 AM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Goes 3-for-4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Mariners.

The second baseman did a good job of keeping the line moving from the nine-hole in this contest. Rengifo came around to score on a David Fletcher triple in the third inning after leading off the inning with a double. The 22-year-old has appeared in eight games in July, going 9-for-22 with two doubles and three runs scored. Overall, he's hitting .271 with 24 runs scored and 19 RBI in 54 games this season, and he should see regular playing time with Tommy La Stella (leg) out.
