6/17/2014 5:19:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar (hip) is in the lineup Tuesday, according to Alden Gonzalez of mlb.com.
Insight: Aybar left Sunday's game with a hip injury and didn't start Monday, though he was able to pinch hit. He's hitless in nine at-bats against Indians starter Josh Tomlin.
 
6/17/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar, who left Sunday's game because of a sore hip and only pinch hit on Monday, could sit Tuesday as well due to an unfavorable matchup.
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.
 
6/16/2014 3:33:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar left Sunday's game against Atlanta because of a sore hip and is not in Monday's starting lieup.
Insight: Manager Mike Scioscia said it wasn't a serious injury, but he won't start Monday. John McDonald (.250, 0 HR, 3 RBI) will take Aybar's place at shortstop.

Insight: John McDonald (.235, 0 HR, 3 RBI) replaced him in the bottom half of the third. Aybar homered and hit into a fielder's choice in his only two at bats of the night.
 
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.
Insight: It's Aybar's second four-hit game of the season. Aybar is 17-for-33 (.515) with eight RBI over his last eight contests.
 
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
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has batted .476 in his career against Houston starter Scott Feldman.
Insight: Aybar is 10-for-21 with two doubles and two triples off Feldman. He's hitting .222 in 2014.
 
8/15/2013 12:29:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar is back in the lineup Thursday afternoon against the Yankees, according to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.
Insight: Aybar left Tuesday's game with a left leg cramp and missed Wednesday's contest. The shortstop has had his best month of the season in August, hitting .310 with a .777 OPS in 12 games.

8/11/2013 10:10:00 AM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has started out 13-for-34 (.382) in August, but he doesn't have any success against Indians starter Justin Masterson.
Insight: Aybar is 2-for-13 (.154) with four strikeouts against Masterson. It's safe to sit him Sunday.
 
7/28/2013 1:00:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar isn't known for his hitting (.385 career slugging percentage) but he swings the bat very well versus A's starter Jarrod Parker.
Insight: Aybar is hitting a mindboggling .615 in 13 trips to the plate against the Oakland righthander. Ignore the fact that he's hitless in his last two games and slot him into your lineup.
 
Hot6/29/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar picked up a pair of singles and two RBI Saturday at Houston.
Insight: It was Aybar's fifth multi-hit effort and fourth two-RBI game in his last six games. He has raised his average from .270 to .285 in that timeframe.
 
6/18/2013 10:46:00 AM
Description: Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has struggled against Mariners starter Jeremy Bonderman.
Insight: Aybar is 3-for-14 with seven strikeouts against the right-hander, who has returned to the majors this season for the first time since 2010 and gone 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 18 2/3 innings.
 
Hot6/4/2013 9:56:00 AM

Insight: Aybar has produced three two-hit games in his last four contests to raise his average to .268. Add in a favorable matchup and he's a viable fantasy option for Tuesday.
