Insight: Aybar is hitless in nine tries against Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin. John McDonald (.237, 0 HR, 7 RBI) would likely take Aybar's place at shortstop.

Hot6/15/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shortstop Erick Aybar had four hits, all singles, in six at bats Saturday against Atlanta.
Insight: Aybars (.288) is 16-for-46 (.348) with four doubles and seven RBI this month. He's a decent shortstop option, but his fantasy value would be better if he was still a threat to steal 20-30 bases. He's swiped just 17 bags on 28 attempts in 203 games going back to the start of last season after picking up 24 steals per season from 2010-12. He also hits near the bottom of the order so he's scored between 67-71 runs in each of the last five seasons.
 
5/20/2014 11:26:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shortstop Erick Aybar is hitting .455 (10-for-22) against Houston starter Scott Feldman.
Insight: It included four extra-base hits and a 1.227 OPS. Aybar is batting .259 this season, but has scored 22 runs and knocked in 20. He's worth a flier.
 
5/14/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shortstop Erick Aybar is hitting a mere .083 in 12 lifetime at bats against Phillies starter A.J. Burnett.
Insight: Aybar didn't play Tuesday night so at least he'll be well-rested for today's 1 p.m. start. The 30-year-old has produced 18 RBI this season, sixth-best among major league shortstops. Hopefully he's not your only option at shortstop today given the bad matchup.
 
5/13/2014 10:34:00 AM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar is an ugly 2-for-18 (.111) against Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee.
Insight: Aybar (.274, 2 HR, 18 RBI, 21 runs) is a decent middle infielder who can help fill in when needed with a .712 OPS, but should be avoided in this unfavorable matchup.
 
5/3/2014 12:16:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup Saturday against Texas.
Insight: That's because he's hitting .167 against tonight's starting pitcher, Matt Harrison. Aybar (.269, 1 HR, 14 RBI) has had a handful of good games this season but he's not a must-start.
 
Hot4/30/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles shortstop Erick Aybar drilled four hits Tuesday in a win over Cleveland.

Hot4/25/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar went 4-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and four runs Friday against the Yankees.
Insight: Aybar has collected 11 hits in his last 17 at-bats to raise his average 100 points (.175 to .275). The shortstop only has one steal this year after swiping 12 bags a year ago. He doesn't provide power, doesn't score more than 65-75 runs because he hits near the bottom of the order and is a career .277 hitter, so if he's not giving you speed he's not doing much fantasy-wise.
 
4/6/2014 9:53:00 AM
