Angels' Erick Aybar yet to record extra-base hit
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has yet to pick up an extra-base hit, going 8 for 43 with eight singles in the first two weeks of the season.
Aybar has mostly hit sixth in the lineup but has also spent a few games leading off. However, he's yet to find much success at the plate, posting a .186/.255/.186 line in 43 at-bats. Aybar and the Angels open a four-game home series against the A's Monday.
Angels' Kole Calhoun not in lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Angels right fielder Kole Calhoun is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.
Calhoun went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBI Saturday. The Angels will use shortstop Erick Aybar as the leadoff man with Calhoun on the bench, and Collin Cowgill will play right field and bat seventh Sunday. The Angels are also starting Taylor Featherston over Johnny Giavotella at second base.
The Angels are favorites (-115) against the Royals Sunday.
Erick Aybar nothing but a singles hitter in July
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/29/14) An inability to hit anything but singles has limited the production of Angels second baseman Erick Aybar recently.
Aybar has hit safely in 17 of his last 21 games, but 19 of his 22 hits during that stretch have been singles. He has no triples or home runs in that period. He has just five runs scored and six RBI since July 6. Aybar owns a decent .281/.317/.403 stat line on the season. His slugging percentage has fallen 30 points in July, but he has been productive overall in 2014 with 50 runs scored and 51 RBI.
|2014 summary: Though at first glance, Erick Aybar's sixth-best finish among shortstops in Head-to-Head points league seems like a fluke -- a byproduct of a career-high 68 RBI, with 50 of them coming in the first half -- the simple truth is that on a per-game basis, he wasn't any better than in 2013 and 2012. And though he isn't quite as productive in Rotisserie leagues since a high doubles rate and low strikeout rate are intrinsic to his value, he's been a top-12 shortstop two of the last three years in that format as well.|
Playing time status: More than his actual production, a career-high 156 games with the Angels were responsible for Aybar's high ranking last year. He's not exactly an injury risk, having played no fewer than 137 games in any of the last six seasons, but shortstop being as physical as it is, a DL stint for him somewhere along the line is to be expected.
2015 outlook: Though he has a 30-steal season in his past, these days Aybar doesn't do any one thing particularly well, lumping him with Alcides Escobar and Asdrubal Cabrera as just another boring fallback option at the position. But especially in points leagues, he's one of the better choices of that group. You shouldn't be ashamed to use a late-round pick on him.
