Luis Rengifo News
Los Angeles Angels infielder Luis Rengifo (biceps) has been placed on the 10-day injured list on Saturday. The 26-year-old will see his season come to an end due to a ruptured biceps tendon. This is bad timing considering Rengifo was red-hot at the plate. He was slashing .443/.471/.770 with five home runs over his last 16 games. Kyren Paris will likely get an extended look down the stretch of the season with Rengifo sidelined. The expectation is that Rengifo will be ready in time for spring training.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Luis Rengifo left Thursday's game in the first inning after suffering a strained left bicep. Rengifo was taking practice swings and suddenly grabbed at his left arm, after which he was immediately taken out of the game. The 26-year-old will likely hit the IL, and depending on the severity of the strain this could mark the end of his 2023 season given the short amount of time left and the Angels being out of contention. That would be a blow to fantasy managers who have picked up the streaking Rengifo, who has a .327/.388/.592 slash line since July 1. Randal Grichuk, Trey Cabbage, and Brett Phillips will likely see more playing time while Rengifo is out.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Luis Rengifo is out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. The 26-year-old snapped his four-game hitless streak with a triple during Tuesday's game. Despite that, he'll get a breather on Wednesday, but should be back in the lineup soon. In the meantime, Eduardo Escobar will start at third base, Brandon Drury will play second versus right-hander Lucas Giolito on Wednesday. Fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if Rengifo sees a dip in playing time with the addition of Escobar to the roster.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Luis Rengifo had a solid fantasy season for the American League West club last year, hitting .264 with a .294 on-base percentage, 17 home runs, and six stolen bases in 511 plate appearances. The home runs, stolen bases, and plate appearances all represented career highs for Rengifo, who also finished with a 103 wRC+ that was above league average. Though despite that, it remains to be seen what the 25-year-old's role will be with the Angels in 2023. Rengifo saw significant time at second base, third base, and shortstop with a handful of appearances in the outfield last season. His best pathway to a regular role for Los Angeles might be in a super-utility role, what with new additions Brandon Drury and Gio Urshela and the returning Anthony Rendon factoring into the infield mix. If Rengifo can play on a regular basis he could have some fantasy appeal in slightly deeper leagues, but Los Angeles's sudden abundance of options at the positions he plays makes his playing time difficult to forecast.
