Latest Update Aybar Talies Four Hits in Loss Mon Oct, 06, 12:20 AM
Is a very slick infielder with the arm to play shortstop. Makes good contact as a batter, hitting for a solid average with some stolen bases.
Flaws: : Doesn't make the most of his speed on the bases; he gets thrown out too much. Has very little power in his swing. Makes a lot of errors at shortstop.
Aybar did everything he could do to help his team out, but he's simply not the guy to put a team on his shoulders and carry them to the Promised Land. His four hits here made him 5-for-11 in the series, but it just wasn't enough as the Halos pitching couldn't contain the Royals bats in this one. Aybar remains a very underrated fantasy option. He's not one to dazzle you with numbers, but he'll hit for a decent average and kick in a little bit of power and a little bit of speed. To get that -- his .278 with seven home runs and 16 stolen bases -- at the shortstop position and never need to worry about it, is a nice thing to have in fantasy, especially if you just go cheap at the position. Aybar should reprise his role again for the Angels next season.Analyst: Howard Bender
Aybar has quietly had a very good season, batting .285 with seven home runs and 15 stolen bases.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Aybar is now just 2-for-12 since returning from the All-Star break, hitting .250 with just three extra-base hits through 72 at-bats in the month of July. However, his lack of production likely stems from his recent groin injury that sidelined him this weekend, so now that it appears he is back at 100 percent he should get back on track sooner rather than later.

This will be the first game he has started since Friday because he was nursing a groin injury. He is a reliable shortstop and should be started in most fantasy leagues.Analyst: Mark KaplanMore Experts..
