Logan O'Hoppe News
Los Angeles Angels rookie catcher Logan O'Hoppe stayed hot at the plate on Monday night in the team's 8-5 extra-inning win over the Seattle Mariners by going 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double, three RBI, two runs scored and a strikeout. O'Hoppe has enjoyed the month of September so far, going 11-for-35 (.314) with five home runs, two doubles, eight RBI and six runs scored in 10 games (nine starts). The hot stretch has raised the 23-year-old backstop's season line up to .242/.296/.524 with an .820 OPS, 10 home runs, 22 RBI and 13 runs scored. O'Hoppe missed significant time earlier in the season due to injury, but he'll continue to serve as the Halos' primary catcher the rest of the way. Ride him while he's hot.
Los Angeles Angels catcher Logan O'Hoppe (shoulder) has been activated from the 60-day injured list on Friday. O'Hoppe will make his return after missing the last four months due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He'll be behind the plate and bat fifth in his return versus the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday. O'Hoppe is slashing .283/.339/.547 with four home runs and 13 RBI over 15 games with the Angels this season. Fantasy managers should double check the waiver wire. O'Hoppe should be rostered everywhere going forward.
Los Angeles Angels rookie catcher Logan O'Hoppe (shoulder) will continue his recovery from a torn left (non-throwing) labrum in his shoulder with Triple-A Salt Lake City. Manager Phil Nevin said the plan is for the 23-year-old to catch back-to-back days and that it will likely be one or two weeks before he is ready to rejoin the team. O'Hoppe had a promising start to the season, slashing .283/.339/.547 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 59 plate appearances. He could be a helpful fantasy player down the stretch in a weak position if he can return fully healthy.
Initially drafted in the 23rd round out of high school by the Philadelphia Phillies, catcher Logan O'Hoppe was likely stuck behind one of the best two-way backstops in the league in J.T. Realmuto before being acquired by the Los Angeles Angels last summer in the trade that sent outfielder Brandon Marsh to Philadelphia. O'Hoppe has the defensive skills to stick behind the plate, and his ability to hit for power (26 home runs in Double-A in 104 games) and his eye (15.7% walk rate), along with his defense, will eventually allow him to be a valuable two-way catcher. The Angels are shopping in the free agent catcher market among guys that would be one-year deals and quickly pushed aside for O'Hoppe if he continues the strong work he showed in 2022. Due to his massive upside, the 22-year-old is worth a late-round flier in two-catcher formats if he can become the Angels' primary backstop in 2023.
