Angels recalled RHP Drew Rucinski from Double-A Arkansas.

Rucinski appeared in one game for the Angels in July. With the Los Angeles having already clinched, he should see a few relief appearances over the next week.

Josh Hamilton (chest) has been shut down with a new injury that could threaten the left fielder's availability for the playoffs.

This guy is just a mess. First it's the shoulder, now it's the chest and ribcage? The only thing you can rely on is that he'll be out when you need him most. He'll be of no help to you over the final week of the season.

Wade LeBlanc tossed 5.1 scoreless innings allowing just three hits and no walks while striking out three batters against the Mariners on Thursday.

LeBlanc settled for a no-decision in Thursday's start despite tossing 5.1 scoreless innings in a divisional game against the Mariners. Now that the Angels have clinched the AL West, we can expect to see LeBlanc back on the mound for the Angels when they take on the Athletics on Tuesday, but another scoreless appearance should not be expected.

Hank Conger went 1-for-2 with a solo home run and two walks in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Mariners.

Conger is now slashing .223/.294/.330 with four home runs and 25 RBI through 224 at-bats. There is no reason he should be on anyone's fantasy roster considering he is only a backup at this point in his career.

Wade LeBlanc will get another start Tuesday against the Athletics, according to Angels manager Mike Scioscia.

LeBlanc was originally supposed to start for Matt Shoemaker Saturday before he was pushed up to replace Jered Weaver Thursday. With the Angels clinching the AL West Wednesday they have no reason not to give LeBlanc one last start this season.

Update: Jered Weaver's next start has been rescheduled for Saturday.

Weaver was scratched from his start on Thursday night, making DFS lose their minds. The Angels have already clinched a playoff spot, so at this point, they just need to make sure everyone is ready to go for the postseason. If Weaver starts on Saturday, he next start would come on Thursday, followed by a game one or game two start in the ALDS.

Josh Hamilton said he's been bothered by pain in his right rib cage.

Hamilton has had another bad season for the Angels and was easily droppable months ago in standard fantasy formats. Given his injury history this newest ailment shouldn't be a shocker but since the Angels have clinched already he should be given plenty of time to heal up before the playoffs.

Mike Trout is not in the Angels starting lineup on Thursday.

In fact, none of the Angels starters are in the lineup Thursday as the team clinched the AL West and are all getting a well-deserved day off after a night of celebration. Sucks for your fantasy team for the day, but most, if not all will be back over the weekend. Be careful though next week as some guys could get rested a little more than usual.
