Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton has gone 4-for-9 with two doubles, a homer, five RBI and two walks in his last three games.
Insight: Hamilton went 5-for-41 (.122) with 18 strikeouts from Aug. 5 to Aug. 16 and he was out of the lineup on Aug. 17-18 at his own request to clear his head. He hasn't struck out since then.
 
Cold8/20/2014 12:17:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton went 0-for-3 in his return to the lineup Tuesday at Boston and he's just 2-for-22 (.091) with six Ks against Wednesday's starter Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Hamilton has gone 5-for-41 (.122) with 18 strikeouts in his last 11 games and he was out of the lineup Sunday and Monday at his own request in order to clear his head. He's not someone fantasy owners should be using right now even if he has a favorable matchup, which isn't the case Wednesday.
 
Cold8/19/2014 4:04:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. He will hit cleanup.
Insight: Hamilton had requested time off because of his struggles at the plate and manager Mike Scioscia gave him the time. The outfielder is hitting .132 in his last ten games and has gone 10-for-59 (.169) since July 31.
 
8/18/2014 4:35:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is not in Monday's starting lineup.
Insight: It's not an injury. Hamilton apparently requested Sunday off because of his struggles at the plate and will get tonight off as well. Brennan Boesch will start in left.
 
8/17/2014 1:56:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is not in Sunday's starting lineup. Collin Cowgill will get the start in right field.
Insight: No injury that we know of, just a routine day off. Cowgill is batting .271 this season with five homers and a .745 OPS in 192 at-bats so has limited fantasy appeal.
 
8/12/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is a career .545 hitter (6-for-11) with a double and three homers against Phillies starter Jerome Williams.
Insight: Williams was bad with Houston and worse with Texas and should be ripe for the picking by Hamilton. The outfielder is just 1-for 20 over the past five games, but might still be worth the gamble.
 
8/10/2014 2:14:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Hamilton is getting a day off after going 1-for-23 with nine Ks in his last five games, including 1-for-8 during Saturday's 19-inning affair.
 
8/4/2014 9:53:00 AM
Description: Avoid Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton Monday as he's faced with an extremely unfavorable matchup.
Insight: Hamilton is a career .045 hitter (1-for-22) versus Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke, including nine strikeouts.

7/31/2014 12:37:00 PM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton has gone 6-for-15 (.400) with a double and a homer against Orioles starter Bud Norris.

Cold7/29/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Angels left fielder Josh Hamilton is just 1-for-12 (.083) versus Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman.
Insight: It's a little unusual in that Hamilton is a .305 hitter against right-handers in his career 35 points higher than against lefties, but this season he's been better against left-handers. Avoid this matchup.

Insight: Hamilton hasn't homered in the past two weeks and has just one this month, but that could change that in this favorable matchup.

Description: Los Angeles left fielder Josh Hamilton is 10-for-17 with a 1.670 OPS versus Cleveland right-hander Justin Masterson.

Insight: Hamilton has continued his hot hitting since returning from the injured list. He's batting .308 in his last 10 games. For the season he's batting .364 with a 1.016 OPS and in this favorable matchup should be a must start.
