Los Angeles Angels

AL West

Angels starting pitcher/designated hitter/outfielder Shohei Ohtani won the 2021 American League MVP award.

Fantasy Impact: Ohtani had a once in a generation season for the Angels. In 155 games, Ohtani finished with a .257 batting average, 103 runs scored, 26 doubles, 26 stolen bases, 46 home runs, and 100 runs batted in. He also had a phenomenal season on the mound for the Angels as well. In 23 starts, Ohtani recorded nine wins, just two losses, 1.09 WHIP, 3.18 earned run average, and 156 strikeouts while also holding opposing batters to a .207 batting average in 130.1 innings pitched.

Shohei Ohtani went 1-for-3 with a home run, an rbi, two walks, and a run scored in Sunday's win over Seattle.

Fantasy Impact: Ohtani put up a masterpiece of a season. He finished with 46 homers, 100 RBIs, and he went 9-2 with a 3.18 ERA over 130.1 innings, the sky is the limit for him as he enters the prime of his career.

Jared Walsh went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBIs, and a run scored in Saturday's loss to Seattle.

Fantasy Impact: Walsh just keeps on getting better. He has been red hot over the last month. He has a massive ceiling in 2022 redraft leagues as there is a ton of power to still be had. A 40 homer 100 RBI season is very much in play for Walsh in 2022.

Raisel Iglesias came in and shut the door in the ninth inning en route to earning his 34th save of the season against the Mariners on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Iglesias has had a phenomenal 2021 season. He owns a 2.61 ERA, and has established himself as a dominant closer in this league. Depending on where he plays next season, his value will be different. But if he lands another locked in closer job, he is certainly worth another pick in fantasy drafts next season.

Jose Suarez went five innings, allowed three hits, one earned run, two walks, and struck out five in Friday's win over Seattle.

Fantasy Impact: Suarez put together a very respectable season in 2021. He finishes with a 3.75 ERA, and 85 strikeouts over 98.1 innings. The strikeout figures are not elite. but the youngster has had a tremendous start to his career. He is certainly someone worth monitoring in 2022 draft season.

Alex Cobb went five innings, allowed seven hits, five earned runs, walked two, and struck out five in Thursday's no-decision against Texas.

Fantasy Impact: Cobb had a decent year all things considered. He spent a chunk of time on the IL but has pitched to a tune of a 3.76 ERA. He is a solid back end of the rotation starter in this league, but he does not possess the elite strikeout potential to put him over the top. But he is a fine option going into 2022

Max Stassi went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBIs, and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to Texas.

Fantasy Impact: Stassi was pretty much the only production that the Angels got on Tuesday. He has had a decent season all things considered. He is not a huge fantasy asset, but he is okay to be plugged in every now and then for some power production from the catcher position.

Brandon Marsh went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a walk, and four runs scored in Saturday’s win over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact: Marsh is one of our favorite picks to click in 2022. Opportunity equals production, and if Marsh remains at the top of this Angels offense, and they can stay healthy, he could have league winning run scoring potential. He has all the tools to succeed, it’s simply a matter of opportunity.

Phil Gosselin homers on Tuesday

Wed, Sep 22nd 11:59am EDT
By Liam Gibney

Phil Gosselin went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs, and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Gosselin came out of nowhere and became an every day staple in the heart of this Halos order. He owns a .267 average with 7 home runs, and 43 RBIs. He is not someone to actively target in next years draft, but he is someone that can offer solid fill-in production when needed.

Kurt Suzuki went 2-for-3 with one walk in the Angels 10-0 loss on Monday against Houston.

Fantasy Impact: In an overall quiet game for the Angels offense, Suzuki was the lone Angels hitter to collect more than one hit. He has collected at least one hit in three straight games.

David Fletcher went 1-for-4 with in the Angels 10-0 loss on Monday against the Astros.

Jaime Barria took the loss on Monday against Houston, allowing two runs on 10 hits over 5.1 innings with five strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Barria allowed a season-high 10 hits, but was able to limit the damage. He allowed both runs in the first inning, but he was able to hold the Astros off the scoreboard the rest of his outing working through many jams.

Justin Upton is not expected to return to the Angels this season. Upton has been out due to a right lumbar strain. (Source: Jack Harris on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Upton finishes his 2021 campaign with a .211/.296/.409 hitting line to go with 17 homers in 90 games. The four time all-star will hopefully achieve better results next year.

Angels manager Joe Maddon conceded that Mike Trout is unlikely to return this season. (Source: Jeff Fletcher on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Trout is with the Angels and continues to work out in hopes of returning, but it is unlikely according to Maddon. He posted a .333 average this season.

Jo Adell was placed on the injured list on Wednesday due to a left abdominal strain. (Source: Angels PR on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Adell was injured after crashing into the wall last Saturday. The hope was that he wouldn't miss too much time, but the Angels decided to be more cautious. Jose Rojas was recalled as the corresponding move.

Angels RHP Dylan Bundy (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen on Wednesday. (Source: Orange County Register)

Fantasy Impact: It was his first mound work since going down in late August. Bundy is aiming to return this season, but he won't have fantasy value following a disappointing campaign.

Packy Naughton went five innings, allowed two hits, zero earned runs, and struck out five in Tuesday’s no-decision.

Fantasy Impact: Naughton could be an interesting pick up for those in need of sneaky pitching help as they make their playoff push. All four of his outings this season have been against great offenses. The Yankees, Dodgers, and the Padres twice. Naughton held his own in all of these matchups. If he ends up running into a matchup against a lackluster offense, he could be a massive under the radar streamer.

Angels LHP Patrick Sandoval (back) will miss the remainder of the season, per manager Joe Maddon. (Source: Jeff Fletcher on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This was a possible outcome when the southpaw went on the IL earlier this month. It's a brutal blow for a young pitcher who appeared to be breaking out. Sandoval's swinging strike rate suggests that he could continue to improve in 2022. He's an early offseason draft target.

Angels' rookie pitcher Reid Detmers was placed on the injured list without a designation on Wednesday. (Source: Jack Harris on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although Detmers was placed on the injured list without any particular designation, it is believed that Detmers was placed on the COVID IL. If that turns out to be the case, then there is no minimum stint for Detmers on the IL before he is eligible to return.

Jose Iglesias went 2-for-5 with two RBIs and three runs scored in Tuesday’s win.

Fantasy Impact: Iglesias is extremely undervalued in deeper leagues. He truly does it all. He can hit for contact, power, and scores a good amount of runs. In deeper leagues, he is a good middle infielder to plug into your lineup.
