Anthony Rendon News
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon added to the excitement of Tuesday's 12-0 win over the Rays, going 1-for-5 with a three-run home run and two strikeouts. Up 10-0 in the eighth inning, Rendon stepped into the box left-handed against outfielder Brett Phillips and clubbed a 54-MPH offering over the right-field wall. While it was a fun moment, the 31-year-old is slashing just .206/.314/.373 with four HR and 16 RBI to start the season. At this point, fantasy managers may want to consider keeping Rendon on their benches until he can pick things up at the plate.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon took an 0-for-3 against the Chicago White Sox during Saturday's 4-0 loss, dropping his batting average to .221 in 19 games. The veteran also has two home runs, seven runs, eight RBI, and two stolen bases. After an injury-riddled 2021 in which Rendon slashed .240/.329/.382, it seems he still has yet to rediscover the form that made him a top 11 MVP finalist four times. That player may never return, but Rendon can still provide a decent batting average and some power in the middle of the Angels lineup at a weak third base position.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Houston Astros due to a stomach bug. Jack Mayfield is taking his place in the starting lineup. This will be the second consecutive missed game for Rendon, who received a scheduled rest day on Sunday. The 31-year-old has struggled out of the gate this year, slashing just .185/.303/.296 over eight games.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon is one of the most consistent performers in MLB, slashing an impressive .286/.418/.497 with nine homers over 232 PAs in his first year with the club. Rendon seldom strikes out, posting a K% below 14 each season since 2017. He also excels at elevating the baseball, posting a FB% above 40 each season since 2016. These two traits give Rendon a safe floor, especially when you consider that his counting stats will be inflated by sharing the heart of the order with one of the best players of all time in Mike Trout. If you're looking for a downside, Rendon's Statcast numbers weren't great last season. His average airborne exit velocity fell from 93.5 mph in 2019 to 92.4 last year, the latter nearly perfectly league-average. Likewise, his 12% rate of Brls/BBE in 2019 was nearly cut in half to 6.3% last season. Rendon's .471 xSLG wasn't quite as good as his .497 slugging percentage, but fantasy gamers should probably give him a pass considering the unique nature of the 2020 season. At his current ADP of 42.27, Rendon is an excellent sign for any roster.
