Scuffling Angels C Chris Iannetta benched for next few days
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/13/15) Mike Scioscia has claimed that Angels catcher Chris Iannetta is getting a "breather." Others might look at his numbers and call it a benching.
Iannetta is set to sit for the next three games, per MLB.com. He has been slumping most of the season, including a recent 3-for-40 slide that has lowered his batting average to .182, its lowest point since June 30.

Angels' Chris Iannetta and Efren Navarro starting Thursday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/11/15) Angels catcher Chris Iannetta is in the lineup for Thursday night's game against the Rays.
Iannetta gets the start over Carlos Perez and will bat eighth. Iannetta is only hitting .169 this season.
Outfielder Efren Navarro is getting the start in left field with Matt Joyce assuming designated hitter duties.
|2014 summary: In his third year as the Angels' primary, but less-than-everyday catcher, Chris Iannetta's greatest contribution was, as usual, his on-base percentage, which ranked second among catchers with at least 300 at-bats. And it wasn't all walks this time; his .252 batting average was the second-highest of his career.
Playing time status: Unfortunately, since he only barely reached 300 at-bats (and still has yet to get more than 345 in a season), he was again little more than waiver fodder in standard mixed leagues. But with perpetual understudy Hank Conger out of the picture, Iannetta could see his most at-bats yet. Then again, he has always hit lefties significantly better than righties, so a platoon remains a possibility.
2015 outlook: Nine years into his big-league career, we should have a pretty good idea who Iannetta is by now. If you play in a two-catcher league with daily lineups, he's worth keeping around for those days he's facing a lefty, but he'll need a huge bump in at-bats for his other strengths to amount to anything. To put it in simpler terms, he's pretty much just an AL-only option.
