Anthony Rendon News
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (leg) will not return this season, according to manager Phil Nevin. The veteran third baseman has been doing baseball activities and receiving treatment at Angel Stadium but with the regular season due to end in less than 10 days, there's not enough time for him to make it back. Rendon is dealing with a fractured tibia in his right leg and should be ready to go for the start of the 2024 season. This wraps up another disappointing season for the 33-year-old in an Angels uniform. He finishes 2023 with a .240/.365/.322 triple-slash line, two home runs, 22 RBI, and two stolen bases over 146 at-bats. He's played in just 199 games out of a possible 648 over the last four years in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (shin) relayed he has had a fractured tibia since he first got injured. Rendon found out weeks ago and said he isn't sure why the Angels didn't announce it. Either way, Rendon hasn't been a good fantasy asset for a couple of years and may not make it back by the end of this year. He hit .236 with a .318 slugging percentage through 43 games before the injury.
Los Angeles Angels third baseman Anthony Rendon (shin) got in some light jogging before Friday's game versus the Cleveland Guardians. The 33-year-old resumed baseball activity earlier this week and took another step forward in his recovery from a left shin contusion. Rendon hit the injured list on July 14 and was eligible for activation on Saturday, but his return is obviously not imminent. The former All-Star has three weeks left to ramp things up for a 2023 return in another lost season for both Rendon and the Angels. Redraft fantasy managers should probably have let go for a stronger stash already. Veterans Mike Moustakas and Eduardo Escobar remain positioned to close the year in a timeshare at the hot corner.
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.
