Player Notes
Matt Joyce went 2-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run Wednesday against the Indians.

Advice: Joyce lifted a Josh Tomlin offering to right field in the third inning, extending the Angels' lead to 2-0 at the time. The 30-year-old will likely serve as the Angels' starting left fielder while Josh Hamilton deals with both a balky shoulder and a potential disciplinary issue.

Matt Joyce (hamstring) will start in left field Wednesday.

Advice: Joyce recently missed a week with hamstring tightness, but he returned to the lineup as the DH on Monday and is now ready to play the field. With Josh Hamilton's status up in the air, Joyce is projected to open the season as the starting left field and should carry decent fantasy value.

Matt Joyce (hamstring) hopes to play the field Wednesday.

Advice: Joyce returned to Cactus League action Monday as the DH and went 1-for-4 with a run scored. The 30-year-old is getting the day off Tuesday, but he's making solid progress. With Josh Hamilton sidelined, Joyce should open the season as the Angels' primary left fielder.

Matt Joyce (hamstring) is in the Angels' starting lineup for Monday's Cactus League game.

Advice: Joyce missed a full week of Cactus League action due to hamstring tightness, but he had been taking at-bats in minor league games over the past couple of days and should be fully caught up by Opening Day. Joyce is expected to serve as the Angels' primary left fielder while Josh Hamilton is on the shelf. He could carry decent fantasy value in the middle of the Angels' dangerous batting order.
