Anthony Rendon News
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (wrist) took batting practice on the field on Monday, and it's looking more likely that he could return at some point before the end of the season, which would allow him to start serving his five-game suspension. The 32-year-old had surgery on his right wrist on June 21, and it was widely believed then that he'd miss the rest of the year. Still, there is very little time left for Rendon to contribute for fantasy managers after he serves a five-game suspension. Before his injury, Rendon was hitting just .228/.324/.383 with five home runs, 24 RBI, 15 runs scored and two stolen bases in 162 at-bats. Matt Duffy should continue to see most of the playing time at third base if/when Rendon returns.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (wrist) was initially believed to be out for the year after he had right wrist surgery, but he's been fully participating in defensive drills, including throwing and hitting in the cages. There's now a chance that Rendon could return before the end of the regular season. It would allow him to serve his five-game suspension from his role in a fight with the Seattle Mariners in June. Head trainer Mike Frostad said Rendon is passing all of the tests so far. The 32-year-old has been a disappointment since signing a seven-year, $245 million deal with the Angels, and he's missed most of the season for the second time in three years. He's hit .228 with five home runs and a .707 OPS in 45 games this year, but he won't have enough time to help fantasy managers down the stretch if he does return.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon will undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist next week. Rendon recently returned from an IL stint due to an injury to the same wrist, and he re-aggravated it just four games later. This is the second season in a row where Rendon will need season-ending surgery after his 2021 campaign ended due to a hip injury. The former fantasy star had gotten off to a rough start, slashing .228/.324/.383 with just five home runs in 162 at-bats. Still, this is a tough loss for fantasy managers at a position where production has been scarce.
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.
