Anthony Rendon News
The Los Angeles Angels reinstated infielder Anthony Rendon to the active roster on Monday. Rendon was activated from the injured list last week so that he could begin serving his five-game suspension for his involvement in a benches-clearing brawl with the Seattle Mariners back in June. It remains to be seen if Rendon will be in the team's starting lineup on Monday against the Oakland Athletics and right-hander Adrian Martinez, but he'll be eligible to close out the final three games of the regular season this week. The 32-year-old had wrist surgery in June and has played in a career-low 45 games in 2022, hitting a disappointing .228/.324/.383 with five home runs, 24 RBI, 15 runs scored and two stolen bases in his 188 plate appearances.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (wrist) saw live pitching against minor league arms on Tuesday and could do so again on Wednesday or Thursday. The Angels are still in the process of determining whether Rendon can return for the final few days of the regular season so that he can finish out a five-game suspension from his involvement in a fight with the Seattle Mariners in June. There are only eight games left in the regular season, so fantasy managers aren't going to get any production from the 32-year-old the rest of the way. Rendon has played in a career-low 45 games in 2022 and has hit a disappointing .228/.324/.383 with five home runs, 24 RBI, 15 runs scored and two stolen bases in 188 plate appearances.
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.
It's fair to say that Anthony Rendon's time in LA hasn't gone well. In three seasons, Rendon has played just 157 games for the Angels with the 47 he tallied last year being a career-low. And he wasn't particularly effective when healthy, hitting .229/.326/.380 with five homers, 24 RBI, 15 runs and two stolen bases. Over the last three years, Rendon has 20 homers, 89 RBI, 68 runs and two steals with a .252/.359/.420 (157 games) and if he managed that over a full season, Rendon would provide value on his ADP (~246). And it's not like Rendon has always been an oft-injured player as before the 2021 season, he spent a total of 24 days (two separate stints) on the IL across five seasons. But the fact the Angels went out and added Gio Urshela and Brandon Drury to their roster this offseason, both of whom can play third base, suggests they have concerns about Rendon staying healthy. Rendon will turn 33 years old during the 2023 season so still has some years left but is certainly in the Autumn months of his playing career. As a later-round flyer, Rendon makes sense in fantasy, especially with the third base position having less depth than in recent seasons, but just make sure you aren't relying on Rendon as a starter in your lineups.
