Player Outlook
It would be fair at this point to call the Angels' 2019 signing of Anthony Rendon to a seven-year deal a disaster, as the once-feared slugger has spent more time on the injured list than on the field over his four seasons so far with the club. Over the past three campaigns, Rendon has played in a total of 148 games -- approximately the equivalent of one season -- and posted a modest .701 OPS with 13 homers and 80 RBI. The All-Star hasn't lost his elite eye at the plate, and last year he walked nearly as many times as he struck out (25:27 BB:K), but that isn't going to carry him far in fantasy circles given the diminished power and inability to stay healthy. Shohei Ohtani's departure to the Dodgers opens the door for Rendon to log substantial time at DH next season, giving him a better chance of avoiding more time on the injured list. Still, counting on a bounce-back from a player who will turn 34 in June and who has been a shell of his former self for three years doesn't seem like the wisest investment.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Continuing ramp-up process

    Angels manager Ron Washington said Tuesday that Rendon (hamstring) was scheduled to field more grounders to his left and right this week before resuming running drills, MLB.com reports. It's not clear how Rendon responded to incorporating more lateral movement into his fielding work, but the 34-year-old generally looks to be trending in the right direction as he works his way back from the left hamstring strain that has kept him out since April 20. He remains without a clear target date for a return from the 60-day IL, but if he's able to increase his running work in the coming days, the Angels could begin the process of outlining a minor-league rehab assignment for the veteran third baseman.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Fields grounders Friday

    Rendon (hamstring) progressed to taking groundballs Friday, per MLB.com. Rendon resumed baseball activities earlier in the week, making throws and taking swings in the batting cages. His ability Friday to take grounders -- albeit only on balls that were hit right at him in order to avoid lateral movement -- was another sign of progress, and Rendon is expected to put his strained left hamstring to an even bigger test by jogging Saturday. Rendon remains weeks away from a return, but it's now feasible that he could be back with the Angels by the end of June.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Considers himself ahead of schedule

    Rendon (hamstring) resumed baseball activities this week and said Wednesday that he thinks he's ahead of schedule in progressing toward a return, per MLB.com. Rendon has been out since April 20 due to a left hamstring strain, but he recently began ramping up his activity by throwing and taking swings in a batting cage. The third baseman will next progress to jogging Saturday, which will be a significant test of the injured hamstring. While Rendon remains weeks away from a return, he indicated that he considers himself ahead of schedule, explaining, "I'm trying to push it each and every day. Let my body tell me that it's painful, it hurts or it's not ready. So we'll get back as soon as possible."

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Resuming baseball activities

    Rendon (hamstring) will resume baseball activities this week, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Rendon has been shelved since late April with a partial left hamstring tear but is finally ready to begin ramping up his rehab work. It's going to be a slow process and one that will involve a rehab assignment at some point, so Rendon still figures to be several weeks away from a return.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Feeling better

    Rendon (hamstring) has progressed to walking on an incline on the treadmill, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Rendon is taking baby steps in his recovery from a left hamstring strain but said Monday that he's feeling a bit better. There remains no timetable for his return and he's not eligible for activation for another month after being shifted to the 60-day injured list earlier this month.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Angels transferred Rendon (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Thursday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Luis Guillorme. Rendon suffered a high-grade partial tear of his left hamstring nearly three weeks ago and now won't be eligible to return until June 21. A more concrete target date for Rendon's return probably won't be established for several more weeks.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Hamstring partially torn

    Rendon said Friday that he has a high-grade partial tear of his left hamstring, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Rendon landed on the injured list Sunday with a left hamstring strain, but it appears his injury is more severe than the Angels initially thought. There is no timetable in place for his return, but he will certainly be sidelined for longer than the 10-day minimum. Miguel Sano has been serving as Los Angeles' primary third baseman since Rendon got injured and should continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Lands on injured list

    The Angels placed Rendon on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a hamstring strain. Rendon suffered the injury during Saturday's game against Cincinnati and will be unavailable for at least the next 10 days. The Halos selected Ehire Adrianza from Triple-A Salt Lake to bolster their infield depth, though it'll likely be Luis Rengifo and Miguel Sano, who is starting Sunday, that fill in at third base.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Hamstring feeling 'not too great'

    Rendon said after exiting Saturday's game against the Reds that his left hamstring is feeling "not too great," Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Rendon tweaked the hamstring on the first play of the game and had to be removed for a pinch runner. It certainly sounds like a stint on the injured list could be in the offing, but the Angels could wait to see how Rendon feels Sunday before making a decision. If Rendon does need to miss time, Luis Rengifo would probably see the most action at third base, with Miguel Sano also a possibility to be mixed in there.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Exits game with hamstring injury

    Rendon departed Saturday's game in Cincinnati with a hamstring injury, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Rendon led off the game with an infield single but then immediately had to be lifted for a pinch runner. It's unclear at this point whether an MRI will be required, but the Angels should offer more clarity on his injury situation after the game. While he hasn't hit for much power at all, Rendon has been productive over the last couple weeks, coming into action Saturday hitting .381/.438/.429 over his last 10 games.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Continues hot stretch

    Rendon went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs in Monday's 7-3 victory versus the Rays. Rendon notched his fourth straight multi-hit game Monday, and he's now batting .263 on the season. That's an impressive climb considering that the veteran third baseman began the campaign hitless through his first 21 at-bats. Rendon is batting a robust .480 over his past six contests, and he's reached base via hit or walk in nine consecutive games. However, his role as the Angels' leadoff hitter has limited his run-production opportunities -- on the season, he has just one RBI.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Taking seat Wednesday

    Rendon isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Rays, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. The veteran third baseman appears to be receiving some routine maintenance in the series finale. Miguel Sano will handle the hot corner Wednesday while Rendon takes a seat.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Getting back on track

    Rendon went 3-for-5 with a double and three runs in Monday's 7-1 victory over the Rays. Rendon got off to an 0-for-21 start to the season at the plate, but he's now working on a modest four-game hitting streak and has six hits over his past 18 at-bats. The veteran third baseman still hasn't homered or driven in a run, though he's knocked a double in consecutive contests. The Angels have stuck with Rendon as their leadoff hitter through his rough start, and he could get a chance to score a decent amount of runs if he continues to perk up at the plate with Mike Trout batting two slots behind him.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Sitting out Wednesday

    Rendon is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game in Miami, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Rendon batted leadoff in each of the first five games this season but is still looking for his first hit. Luis Rengifo will take his spot both at the top of the batting order and at third base.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: In leadoff spot for opener

    Rendon will start at third base and bat leadoff in Thursday's season opener versus the Orioles. Angels manager Ron Washington toyed with the idea of batting Rendon at the top of the order later on in spring training, and the veteran skipper decided to carry it into the season. Rendon will be followed by Aaron Hicks, Mike Trout and Taylor Ward.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Possible leadoff option

    Angels manager Ron Washington said he's experimenting with Rendon batting leadoff in Wednesday's Cactus League game since the team doesn't have an ideal option, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Rendon wouldn't offer much speed at the top of the lineup with just two steals in each of the past two seasons, but he does have a career 11 percent walk rate. The 33-year-old has primarily hit third or fourth since joining the Angels in 2020, but his spot in the order at this point is really secondary. Rendon has played in just 148 games over the past three seasons, and even when available he hasn't been particularly productive with a .701 OPS.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Expected back Sunday

    Manager Ron Washington said he expects Rendon (groin) to return to the Angels' lineup Sunday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Groin discomfort has prevented Rendon from playing in Cactus League games since Sunday, but it appears his absence won't extend longer than a week. Rendon has logged two hits in 10 at-bats so far this spring while drawing four walks and scoring twice. He posted a .679 OPS last season -- the lowest mark of his 11-year career -- and he hasn't eclipsed 250 plate appearances in a season since joining the Angels in 2020.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Going through workout Wednesday

    Rendon (groin) will go through a normal workout Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Rendon took it easy for a couple days after feeling some discomfort in his groin Sunday. He's ready to ramp back up again, however, and should return to Cactus League games before long if all goes well. The veteran third baseman is slated to bat cleanup for the Angels this season.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Dealing with groin injury

    Rendon reported discomfort in his groin Sunday and will be out through at least Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Manager Ron Washington said he's not too concerned about Rendon's injury but noted the veteran's absence may extend beyond Wednesday if he's not at 100 percent. Rendon is currently 2-for-10 with four walks and two runs scored through six Cactus League games and is in line to serve as the Angels' cleanup hitter once the regular season begins.

  • Angels' Anthony Rendon: Projected to hit cleanup

    Angels manager Ron Washington said Thursday that Rendon (lower leg) will be the team's cleanup hitter this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. That's for days he's not on the injured list, of course. Rendon has played just 200 of a possible 546 games in four seasons with the Angels due to a variety of injuries but doesn't appear to be under any restrictions this spring. It's possible the Angels elect to use him often at designated hitter in 2024 in hopes that it will help keep him on the field.
