Angels' Cliff Pennington: Hits grand slam Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington started at short and went 2-for-4 with his first career grand slam in Wednesday's 10-8 win over Oakland.

Pennington's heroic blast capped off a five-run comeback in the seventh inning over the Angels' division foe. It was just the 33-year-old's third homer of the season, so fantasy owners shouldn't overreact to his big night at the plate. Pennington was relieving Andrelton Simmons at short, but the majority of his playing time comes at the keystone against left-handed starters.

Angels' Cliff Pennington: Homers in start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington got the nod at the keystone against a left-handed pitcher Tuesday, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to Washington.

The veteran infielder has started six of the Angels' last 12 contests, but all six have come against southpaws. A strict platoon has developed at second base between Pennington and Kaleb Cowart, but the latter plays more and thus is the more desirable fantasy asset.

Angels' Cliff Pennington: Getting starts against lefties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington started at the keystone and went 2-for-4 in Sunday's victory over the Mariners.

Kaleb Cowart has emerged as the Angels' primary option at second base, but Pennington has picked up starts in two of the club's last three games which have both come against southpaws. While both players are switch hitters, the former has struggled against southpaws since being called up (4-for-20) while the latter has experiences success against lefties this season (10-for-34), so a platoon situation at the keystone appears to be developing in Los Angeles.

Angels' Cliff Pennington: Three-game starting streak ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.

Pennington had logged the previous three starts at second base, but that was only because the opposition rolled out left-handed starters in each of those contests. With righty Rick Porcello on the mound for Boston in the series finale, Pennington will give way to Nick Franklin, who is expected to see the bulk of the starts at the keystone on the strong side of a platoon.

Angels' Cliff Pennington: Collects two hits Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pennington started at second and went 2-for-3 with a double in Friday's loss to Boston.

With back-to-back southpaws on the mound, Pennington has seen two consecutive starts and produced two separate two-hit performances. The Angels are facing another lefty on Saturday (David Price), which places the 33-year-old into the lineup for a third consecutive game. While he is on the short side of a platoon at second base with Nick Franklin, Pennington could force himself into a larger role if he can outplay his competition at second base.
