Insight: Ianetta had a career year in 2008 for the Rockies but has hit .227 with an average of 12 homers, 40 RBI, 36 runs and a .756 OPS over the last five seasons. This is his third year with the Angels.
 
10/5/2012 8:00:00 PM
Description: Chris Iannetta and the Angels have agreed to terms on a new three-year $15.5 million contract extension.
Insight: Ianetta's numbers this season were pretty pedestrian (.240, 9 HR, 26 RBI) but keep in mind he missed almost half the season with a broken wrist. Ianetta won't hit for a high average but he could reach 15 homers next year if he stays healthy.
 
Hot9/3/2012 10:28:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles catcher Chris Iannetta collected a trio of hits Monday in a Labor Day victory over the Athletics.
Insight: Ianetta has flown under the fantasy radar for much of the year but over his last 10 games he's hitting .459 with two jacks and eight RBI. If you are unsatisfied with your current catching situation and Ianetta is available on waivers, why not give him a try?
 
7/28/2012 8:11:00 PM
Description: Angels catcher Chris Iannetta was activated from the disabled list on Saturday. He has missed the last two and a half months while recovering from a forearm injury.
Insight: Despite being available to play for the first time in months, Iannetta (.197, 3 HRs, 9 RBIs) is not listed in the starting lineup for Saturday night's game against Tampa Bay. Instead, Bobby Wilson (.224, 2 HRs, 9 RBIs) will make his 47th start of the year behind the plate for Los Angeles.
 
6/7/2012 7:30:00 PM
Description: Angels catcher Chris Iannetta (wrist) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday with High-A Inland Empire.
Insight: Iannetta (.197, 3 HRs, 9 RBIs) had wrist surgery on May 11 and began taking batting practice this week. There likely aren't too many fantasy owners anxiously awaiting his return.
 
5/10/2012 7:37:00 PM
Description: Chris Iannetta will have surgery on his right wrist Friday. Ianetta suffered the injury back on May 2nd while catching Jered Weaver's no-hitter.
Insight: Iannetta (.197, 3 HRs, 9 RBIs) is expected to miss between six and eight weeks of action.
 
3/19/2012 2:50:00 PM
Description: Chris Iannetta is working his way back from an elbow injury.
Insight: Iannetta is in no danger of missing the start of the season. He hit 14 HR and knocked in 55 in just 345 at-bats last season with Colorado and should see plenty of work in Anaheim. He has always been a much better hitter in Denver (.869 OPS) than away (.707 OPS), so there is plenty to be wary of if you plan on making him your starting catcher.
 
5/10/2011 10:34:00 AM
Description: Chris Iannetta put the Rockies up for good on Monday against the Mets with his 5th HR of the season to break the Rockies skid.
Insight: Iannetta is 4th highest catcher on the player rater and available in almost 90% of leagues. This could be a solid replacement for Mauer owners.
 
3/27/2011 5:14:00 AM
Description: Chris Iannetta went 3-for-3 yesterday and is hitting .355 in spring training.
Insight: The high average is a result of good hitting in the past week and is a good sign for a player who has always had trouble getting on base at the major league level. He is worth owning in two-catcher leagues because of his power potential.
 
3/18/2011 6:23:00 AM
Description: Chris Iannetta is batting .211 this spring.
Insight: He is going to get more playing time than ever this year and that may mean more home runs but it will also make him a bigger drain on your batting average. Be happy with .250 because you might not even get that.
 
3/2/2011 6:31:00 AM
Description: Chris Iannetta hit his first spring training home run of 2011 yesterday.
Insight: The Rockies have turned the starting catcher job over to him. His power in Coors Field gives him plenty of upside. His poor batting average gives him plenty of downside too.
 
3/1/2011 5:30:00 PM
Description: The Rockies catcher Chris Iannetta hit a monster home run today against the D-backs that traveled 425+ feet.
Insight: Iannetta is an interesting player this season with Miguel Olivo now in Seattle. He could end up being a nice sleeper due to a power potential and playing in Coors Field.
 
9/3/2010 9:00:00 AM
Description: Iannetta went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run on Thursday against the Phillies.
Insight: Iannetta has four RBI over his last two games as he is now batting .203 with eight home runs and 24 RBI on the year. (RapidDraft.com)
 
7/29/2010 11:24:00 AM
Description: Chris Iannetta was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to the birth of his daughter. Miguel Olivo will catch in his place. SOURCE: Denver Post
Insight: He has nice power, but he has primarily been used as the backup catcher this season. In his limited at-bats, he can do damage, so look at him in deeper leagues or stash him in mixed leagues in case something happens to Olivo.
 
7/19/2010 8:55:00 AM
Description: Iannetta went 2-for-4 with a solo home run on Sunday against the Reds.
Insight: Iannetta homered for the fourth time in his last five games as he now has seven home runs and 14 RBI in 27 games so far this year. (SportsBuff.com)
 
7/18/2010 5:43:00 PM
Description: Chris Iannetta homered today, the only run in a 1-0 Colorado win.
Insight: Miguel Olivo is still hitting well enough to keep his number one job but Iannetta is making things interesting - he has five homers in his last eight starts.
