The 28-year-old is starting Thursday against Oakland and should see plenty of playing time for the Angels over the next week.... See More ... See Less

Fletcher was hit by a pitch on his hand last Saturday and underwent a CT scan Friday that came back negative.

Angels' David Fletcher: Getting CT scans
Fletcher will undergo a CT scan on his right hand Friday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Fletcher was hit by a pitch in the hand last Saturday and continues to experience some soreness nearly a week later. The 28-year-old came off the bench Tuesday against Cleveland and was also in the lineup Wednesday, but he was limited to bunt attempts at the plate. Fletcher is unsurprisingly out of the lineup Friday versus the Mariners, and his availability for the rest of the weekend is up in the air.... See More ... See Less

Fletcher (hand) went 1-for-2 with a single in a 3-1 loss Tuesday in Cleveland.
Fletcher was removed from Saturday's game in Houston after being hit by a pitch and missed the last two games. He did not start Tuesday but pinch hit for Andrew Velazquez in the fifth inning and remained in the game, playing shortstop. Despite his appearance off the bench, Fletcher doesn't appear to be fully past the hand issue as he bunted in both his plate appearances Tuesday and appeared unable to take full swings, per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register....

Angels' David Fletcher: Still out Tuesday
Fletcher (hand) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Guardians.
Fletcher has missed three games in a row due to this hand contusion. He couldn't grip a bat Tuesday, and with there being no fracture, it just comes down to pain tolerance. Luis Rengifo will start at second base while Matt Duffy starts at the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Remains on bench Monday
Fletcher (hand) isn't starting Monday against Cleveland.
Fletcher is out of the lineup for a second consecutive game due to a right hand contusion. Luis Rengifo is starting at second base in place of Fletcher, who noted that he's still dealing with some soreness with the hand that provides complications when he grips the bat, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com. Fletcher is thus unlikely to be available Monday in a pinch-hitting capacity, though because his hand isn't bothering him when he throws, he could be deployed as a late-inning defensive replacement....

Angels' David Fletcher: Not part of Sunday's lineup
Fletcher (hand) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Fletcher left Saturday's game after being hit by a pitch on the right hand, and he will get at least one day to recover. Luis Rengifo and Andrew Velazquez will form the Angels' starting middle infield Sunday.... See More ... See Less

Angels' David Fletcher: Three hits in win
Fletcher went 3-for-5 with one run scored in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jays.
Fletcher has failed to record a hit in just two of his last 20 games, batting .349 in 83 at-bats during that span; however, in his last 18 games the power has not been there as the 28-year-old has only two extra-base hits (both doubles) in 75 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Raps three hits in rout
Fletcher went 3-for-5 with a double, a walk, two runs, two RBI and a stolen base in Friday's 12-0 victory versus the Blue Jays.
Fletcher hit atop the order for the Angels and sparked the offense from the onset, singling and stealing third base in the first inning. He was stranded without crossing the plate, but Fletcher doubled in two runs in the following frame and subsequently came around to score. The infielder finished with his first three-hit effort of the campaign, lifting his season batting average to .278. He's slashing .326/.366/.442 since returning from a lengthy stay on the IL on July 28.... See More ... See Less
Angels' David Fletcher: Good to go Tuesday
Fletcher (foot) is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff Tuesday against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The 28-year-old exited Monday's contest after fouling a ball off his left foot and suffering a contusion, but it doesn't appear to be a significant concern since he's back in action a day later. Fletcher has a .358/.382/.528 slash line with two home runs and 10 RBI in 15 games since returning from the IL in late July.... See More ... See Less

Angels' David Fletcher: Getting look as leadoff hitter
Fletcher will start at second base and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Fletcher will stick atop the lineup for the third consecutive contest, with the Angels facing off against one right-hander (James Kaprielian) and two lefties (Cole Irvin and JP Sears) during that stretch. Though he'll be occupying second base Wednesday, Fletcher looks like he could see more playing time down the stretch at shortstop, a position in which the Angels have struggled to extract production from Andrew Velazquez. Fletcher could be a decent source of batting average, runs and steals if he ends up getting an extended run as the Angels' table setter.... See More ... See Less

The 28-year-old had sat out the last two games due to a foot injury on the heels of missing over two months as a result of a hip injury but appears to be healthy now. Fletcher is slashing .220/.270/.424 with two long balls, six runs and eight RBI in 21 contests. He has yet to attempt a stolen base after recording 15 thefts last year.... See More ... See Less
