Angels' Luis Rengifo: Seeing steady work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Since shortstop Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list July 28, Rengifo has emerged as the primary beneficiary. With David Fletcher stepping in at Simmons' position, Rengifo has taken over as the Angels' main second baseman -- he'll pick up his ninth start in 10 games Sunday. Despite the steady playing time, Rengifo has yet to heat up at the plate, as he's gotten off to a 4-for-28 start to the season.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Draws first start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Mariners, batting ninth and playing second base.

Rengifo was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday after dealing with a hamstring injury suffered during summer camp in mid-July. The 23-year-old was going to have a tough time finding consistent playing time in the Halos' crowded infield, but with Andrelton Simmons placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Rengifo will likely see his fair share of time at the keystone in the coming days as David Fletcher shifts to shortstop.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (hamstring) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday.

Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was placed on the 10-day IL in a subsequent move, clearing room for Rengifo on the 30-man roster. David Fletcher figures to get most of the starts at shortstop in Simmons' stead, though Rengifo could see time at the middle-infield positions on occasion.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Returning from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (hamstring) will be activated off the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old is with the team and should be available off the bench for Tuesday's contest. Andrelton Simmons' (ankle) status remains up in the air, so there could be playing time available for Rengifo if Simmons misses some time.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (hamstring) is close to being game ready, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

He has not played yet this season due to a hamstring issue but it sounds like we could see him debut sometime this week. Andrelton Simmons is dealing with an ankle injury, so if he is still ailing when Rengifo returns, there could be starts available at shortstop.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Not on Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (hamstring/undisclosed) is not on the Angels' 30-man roster.

Rengifo missed most of summer camp for undisclosed reasons and then tweaked his hamstring after reporting in mid-July. His timeline for returning to action remains unclear.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Tweaks hamstring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (undisclosed) is dealing with hamstring tightness, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The 23-year-old reported to the team facility this week after missing the start of camp for undisclosed reasons, and he's experiencing some hamstring issues after his first couple days of workouts. Rengifo is on the injured list, and his Opening Day availability remains in question due to his delayed arrival and the injury.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Reports to camp, remains on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rengifo (undisclosed) reported to summer training Wednesday but will remain on the injured list for now, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The 23-year-old landed on the injured list for unspecified reasons last week, and his arrival at camp at least indicates some progress toward a return. Rengifo is expected to provide infield depth when healthy, but given his absence to this point he may not be built up for the start of the season July 24.

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.
