Angels selected the contract of shortstop Shawn O’Malley.

O'Malley has looked pretty good at Triple-A Salt Lake this year, slashing .331/.413/.475 for the season. However, while his contact rates are solid, he's not one to hit for much power. There's a little bit of speed there, but nothing that is going to excite fantasy owners. Hard to say how much playing time he'll see, but it's probably not going to be much.

Chris Iannetta went 3-for-3 with a home run, two runs scored and a walk as the Angels beat the A's 8-1 on Sunday. 

Although Iannetta is the regular catcher for the Halo's, he does not provide enough pop or statistical dominance to be started in one catcher leagues or as a flex player. He is an average number 2 catcher if playing in a two-catcher league.

Mike Trout went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Angels triumph over the A's on Sunday. 

Trout continues to display his fantasy dominance and continues proving to owners and critics why he is the best player in fantasy. Trout should continue to be started with the utmost confidence, but that goes without saying as it should be common knowledge.

Matt Shoemaker improved to 14-4 after shutting out the Athletics on five hits and no walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings on Sunday at Angel Stadium. 

Shoemaker continues to pitch well of late and has logged the win in his last five outings. He has not received the loss since August 6th where he still notched a quality start. Shoemaker has been dominant of late and his enjoying success in the big leagues. His next start should come Saturday against the Twins where he should be started in all formats.

Grant Green (abdomen) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday.

Green figures to be a utility option off the bench for the Angels since being activated a day early from the disabled list. Green has no fantasy relevance until he gets a full-time job which won't happen unless there is an injury.

Huston Street picked up his 35th save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the A's on Saturday. He allowed one hit and struck out one.

Street has now converted 11 of his first 12 save chances since being dealt to the Angels as he continues to be one of the top ninth inning options to own down the stretch. Sitting on a 1.06 ERA and 0.84 WHIP through 51.0 innings, Street is line to have the best year of his career although he hasn't done it by dominating the opposition (8.82 K/9) like most elite closers.

Cory Rasmus threw three scoreless innings against the A's on Saturday and allowed just one hit with no walks and six strikeouts.

Rasmus made his first start of the season on Saturday and was able to get the job done although he did not pitch deep enough into the game to qualify for the win. He is now sitting on a 2.48 ERA and 1.10 WHIP through 40.0 innings while maintaining a solid 44:12 K:BB rate. The Angels are expected to keep Rasmus in the starting rotation for the time being, with his next start coming on Friday against the Twins, but like his last outing, there is a good chance he only sees a few innings as he makes the transition to becoming a starting pitcher.
