Latest Update Howie Kendrick went 2-for-5 with two RBI and a stolen base in the Angels triumph over the Red Sox on Wednesday night at Fenway Park. Thu Aug, 21, 01:14 AM
Has a quick bat and makes excellent contact. Also has fairly good speed running the bases. Possesses solid power and has improved his glove work at second base. Is durable.
Flaws: : Doesn't take full advantage of his speed, and could stand to improve his base-stealing ability. Is fairly inconsistent when it comes to hitting home runs and RBI opportunities.
After going 0-for-11 over his last three games, Kendrick got back on track Wednesday, logging his fourth multi-hit game over his last 10 contests. Quietly, Kendrick has put together a nice season, slashing .279/.337/.372 with five home runs, 53 RBI, 65 runs scored and 13 steals over 487 at-bats as he remains to be a contributor across the board in 2014.

Being buried on a team full of big names it is easy to overlook the consistent production of Kendrick, who is now slashing .293/.350/.394 with four home runs, 45 RBI and 12 steals over 409 at-bats. Having now hit safely in nine of his last 10 at-bats, Kendrick is hitting .318 since returning from the All-Star break, but is going to have little opportunity to drive in runs with the murder's row, featuring Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton slotted ahead of him the rest of the way. With that said, he is still a must-start fantasy option as long as he continues to take advantage of the opportunities that are presented to him.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Kendrick continues to be efficient for the Angels in 2014, now sporting a .274 average with four home runs, 28 RBI and nine stolen bases. Although he doesn't standout in one category, Kendrick has proven time and time again that he can be a solid fantasy contributor providing production across the board in most formats.

Kendrick is in a mini-slump as he has just one hit over his last three games (12 at-bats), so manager Mike Scioscia is going to give him the night off in hopes that the rest will recharge the second baseman's batteries helping him get back on track for what is looking like another solid season of production (projected to hit eight home runs and steal 25 bases with a .280-plus average and near .350 OBP).Analyst: Michael Pichan
