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.

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.

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.

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.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: On base four times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and a pair of runs in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Rengifo served his role as the second leadoff man well, getting on base four times out of the ninth spot in the order. He'll end the first half with a respectable but not particularly noteworthy .260/.333/.379 slash line. He should have a regular role at second base for the next 8-to-10 weeks with Tommy La Stella out with a fractured tibia, so owners in deeper leagues could look his way for a competent fill-in at the position.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Playing time opens up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo will start at second base and bat ninth Sunday against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Rengifo looked poised to lose playing time when Andrelton Simmons returned from the 10-day injured list June 27, but the rookie's playing-time outlook appears stable again after Tommy La Stella was recently ruled out for 8-to-10 weeks with a fractured tibia. With La Stella on the shelf, the Angels will likely rotate Matt Thaiss and David Fletcher at third base, which should open up the keystone for Rengifo on a near-everyday basis.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Andrelton Simmons and Tommy La Stella will man the middle-infield spots in the series finale, resulting in Rengifo heading to the bench after a string of 11 consecutive starts. Though Rengifo has found success at the plate recently with a .341 average and five extra-base hits over that 11-game span, his opportunities seem likely to decline now that Simmons is healthy again after an extended stay on the injured list.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Blasts three-run home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in a victory over Cincinnati on Tuesday.

Rengifo took Tyler Mahle deep with a 408-foot blast in the second inning to give the Angels a 4-1 lead. The 22-year-old struggled out of the gates this season but has had a productive June, hitting all three of his home runs this month while posting a .270 average and 10 runs batted in.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Smashes second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo went 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Rengifo slugged a two-run homer to left field in the second inning, and he cut his team's deficit to one in the sixth by singling home a run, his third RBI of the night. The 22-year-old has now registered two or more hits in each of his last three contests, and he's reached base safely in five straight.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Remains out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not in the lineup Monday against the Blue Jays.

With David Fletcher and Tommy La Stella manning second and third base, respectively, Rengifo will retreat to the bench for a second consecutive game as Wilfredo Tovar picks up a start at shortstop. With the Angels getting healthier -- Andrelton Simmons (ankle) is nearing a return -- Rengifo could be heading to a bench role or back to the minors.

June 16, 2019 10:20 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Bows out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

With Tommy La Stella and David Fletcher healthy again after recent bouts with minor injuries, Rengifo will take a seat following 11 consecutive starts. Rengifo has seen most of his big-league action at second base to date, but shortstop may represent his clearest path to playing time while Andrelton Simmons (ankle) remains at least a few days away from returning from the injured list. The 22-year-old switch hitter displayed an intriguing blend of speed and contact skills during his time in the minors, but those attributes have yet to surface at the big-league level. Through his first 134 plate appearances, Rengifo is batting just .222 and has been caught stealing on his lone attempt.

June 3, 2019 05:56 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not starting Monday against the Cubs.

Rengifo is hitting .308/.404/.436 over his last 11 games. He'll hit the bench Monday, with the newly promoted Taylor Ward starting at third base and Tommy La Stella sliding over to second.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Gets fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo will start at shortstop and bat ninth Sunday against the Rangers.

Rengifo has started all five of the Angels' games since being recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday after everyday shortstop Andrelton Simmons sustained a Grade 3 ankle sprain. With Simmons likely sidelined through the All-Star break and potentially longer, Rengifo should have ample opportunity to distinguish himself at the big-league level. He's recorded a pair of two-hit games since his callup but has yet to attempt a steal for the Angels this season after being highly active on the bases during his time in the minors.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Back from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake and is starting at second base while hitting eighth Tuesday against the Twins.

This is the corresponding move to Andrelton Simmons landing on the 10-day injured list with a Grade 3 left ankle sprain -- an injury that can carry an 8-to-12-week timetable. Rengifo is a better fit at second base, so David Fletcher is serving as the Angels' shortstop, but it still seems like Rengifo will have an opportunity to prove he belongs in the big leagues this time around. He is not a true burner, but has good instincts on the bases and could be a fantasy asset in that department as long as he is playing regularly. Rengifo, 22, hit .275/.333/.468 with five home runs and three steals in 120 plate appearances in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League this season.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake following Wednesday's game against the Twins.

Rengifo's most recent stint with the Angels lasted just two days, corresponding with Kole Calhoun's stay on the paternity list. The youngster went 0-for-7 with a 2:3 BB:K in a pair of appearances during his time with the big club, lowering his season average to .147 through 34 at-bats (11 games).

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Promotion on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Tuesday's game against the Twins, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Rengifo will be called up to replace Kole Calhoun, who was placed on the paternity list Monday night. Rengifo has struggled in the big leagues through nine games this season, hitting .185 with three extra-base hits and an RBI.

May 7, 2019 04:40 PM
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Angels activated Zack Cozart (neck), Cody Allen (back) and Shohei Ohtani (elbow) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, resulting in a flurry of corresponding moves. Rengifo struggled to a .185 average with three extra-base hits and an RBI over nine games, so he'll head back to the minor leagues.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Rengifo has started all five games since earning a promotion last week, slashing .250/.316/.375 with a pair of doubles and 2:3 BB:K over that stretch. Tommy La Stella is starting at second base and batting leadoff in his place Wednesday.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Set for big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake prior to Thursday's game against the Yankees, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

After excelling across three levels of the minors last season, Rengifo has only hit .240/.284/.387 with two home runs and two steals in 81 plate appearances this year, but he was nonetheless summoned to make his big-league debut. According to DiGiovanna, Rengifo will start at second base and hit ninth in Thursday's game against the Yankees. He is only 5-foot-10 but hit seven home runs last year as a 21-year-old while chipping in 41 steals. His above-average speed and aggression on the bases will be the main selling point for fantasy, at least early in his big-league career. Zack Cozart (neck) was sent to the injured list in a corresponding move.
