Luis Rengifo News
Los Angeles Angels manager Ron Washington said that he envisions second baseman Luis Rengifo or outfielder Mickey Moniak batting leadoff this year. Washington also sees first baseman Nolan Schanuel as the No. 2 hitter in front of outfielder Mike Trout and third baseman Anthony Rendon. Meanwhile, shortstop Zach Neto will hit ninth in the batting order. The 26-year-old switch-hitting Rengifo has fared better against left-handed pitchers, so it would make sense for him to hit leadoff against southpaws, while Moniak hits atop the lineup against right-handers. Between second and third base, Rengifo should play regularly for the Halos in 2024, although his modest power and speed makes him a bench bat in deep-mixed fantasy leagues, at best.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Luis Rengifo (biceps) told Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com that he is fully healthy after recovering from surgery to address his torn left biceps tendon. The injury kept him sidelined for most of September and October of last season, though he still managed to play while slashing .264/.339/.444 with a 114 wRC+. The Angels continue to seek reinforcements on the offensive side, and Rengifo offers just that. Prospective fantasy managers will get a glimpse into his outlook when the Angels kick off their Spring Training games this weekend.
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 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.
