Angels' Mickey Moniak: No baseball activities yet
Moniak (back) remains out of the lineup Friday and hasn't yet resumed baseball activities, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Moniak hasn't appeared in a game since Sept. 5 due to lingering back discomfort and there is no timeline for his return, but the Angels have so far decided against placing him on the 10-day injured list. Blum notes that placing the outfielder on the IL and then calling up another player might add to the team's payroll, which could be the motivation behind the lack of a transaction.... See More ...

Angels' Mickey Moniak: Placed on 10-day IL
The Angels placed Moniak on the 10-day injured list Friday with left back tightness.
This back tightness has kept Moniak sidelined since Sept. 5 and the Angels are finally putting him on the IL in a move that is retroactive to Sept. 14. Jordyn Adams has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake in a corresponding move to provide the Halos with some much-needed outfield depth.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Won't play in series finale
Angels manager Phil Nevin confirmed earlier this week that Moniak (back) will remain out for at least the rest of the team's series in Seattle that concludes Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Moniak will end up missing more than a week due to his back injury, which cropped up during batting practice prior to last Thursday's game against the Guardians. Brett Phillips has started in center field in each of the Halos' last seven games while Moniak has been on the mend. The Angels will check in and see how Moniak is feeling following Thursday's off day before deciding on his status for the three-game series with the Tigers this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: May not return until Friday
Moniak (back) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians and could miss the upcoming three-game series against the Mariners, which begins Monday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Moniak's absence Sunday will be his fifth straight due to back tightness, and it appears he could be sidelined for at least a few more games. If it looks like his absence will extend beyond Friday, the 25-year-old could be moved to the injured list. Randal Grichuk, Brett Phillips and Jordyn Adams will start from left to right in the outfield.... See More ... See Less

Angels' Mickey Moniak: Remains out Friday
Moniak (back) isn't in the Angels' lineup Friday against Cleveland, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports.
Back tightness caused Moniak to be a late scratch from the Angels' lineup ahead of Thursday's series opener, and the issue remains severe enough to keep him out of another game Friday. Brett Phillips will start in center field and bat eighth while Moniak recovers.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Scratched with back tightness
Moniak was scratched from Thursday's game against the Guardians with back tightness, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Angels' Mickey Moniak: Hitless in return
Moniak went 0-for-4 in a loss to Oakland on Friday.
Moniak was able to return to the lineup after exiting Tuesday's contest against the Phillies with back soreness. The outfielder started in center field Friday and batted eighth in the order, continuing a recent trend of hitting near the bottom of the lineup after he spent time in the leadoff spot earlier this season. Moniak's move down the order has coincided with his extended struggles making contact -- since the start of August, he's batting just .193 with a 44.4 percent strikeout rate.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Returns to lineup Friday
Moniak (back) is starting in center field and batting eighth Friday against the Athletics.
Moniak missed Wednesday's series finale in Philadelphia due to back soreness, but he's apparently feeling better heading into the Angels' three-game weekend set in Oakland.

Angels' Mickey Moniak: Out of lineup Wednesday
Moniak (back) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest in Philadelphia, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Moniak had to be removed from Tuesday's loss to the Phillies with back soreness. There's a chance the left-handed batter wouldn't have started Wednesday, anyway, with southpaw Cristopher Sanchez toeing the slab for the Phillies. The Angels are idle Thursday, so Moniak will hope to be ready to go Friday in Oakland. Luis Rengifo is in center field Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Exits with injury
Moniak was removed from Tuesday's game against the Phillies with back soreness, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Moniak seemed to be limping during his final at-bat in Tuesday's contest and was later pulled during the seventh inning. Fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day until the Angels provide more details.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Goes 3-for-4 in loss
Moniak went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a triple in Monday's loss against the Phillies.
The 25-year-old showcased his versatility Monday, reaching on a bunt single in the first inning, legging out a triple in the fifth, and delivering an RBI single off lefty Matt Strahm in the seventh. Over Moniak's last six games, he is slashing .391/.417/.652 across 24 plate appearances despite a 37.5 percent strikeout rate during that span.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Clubs 13th homer
Moniak went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday in a 5-3 win against the Mets.
Moniak hit the only long ball of the contest for the Angels, belting a 405-foot solo shot in the second inning. The homer snapped a 17-game stretch during which Moniak failed to go deep, and he had knocked in just two runs over that period. Moniak has struggled with a .178 batting average over 21 games in August, though he's been picking it up a bit of late, going 6-for-18 (.333) over his past six contests.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Not starting Tuesday
Moniak is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.
With Mike Trout (wrist) being activated and set to make his return, Moniak may see less playing time. The outfielder has made the majority of his starts in center field this season, but with Trout's return, Moniak will see more time in left or right. In theory, a Moniak-Randal Grichuk platoon in left field would make sense, but it's notable that Grichuk is in the lineup Tuesday against a same-handed pitcher (Graham Ashcraft).... See More ...

Angels' Mickey Moniak: Sitting Game 2
Moniak is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader with the Rays, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Moniak will head to the bench after he went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a stolen base before getting pinch hit for in the eighth inning of the team's 7-6 Game 1 win. Jordyn Adams will take over in center field and bat ninth in the nightcap with Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Sits amid slump
Moniak is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game at Texas, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Moniak started the past 11 games but posted a .387 OPS during that span, and he'll receive a day to reset Tuesday. Jordyn Adams will start in center field and bat ninth against Rangers lefty Jordan Montgomery.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Swipes fifth bag
Moniak went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday.
Moniak has been slumping lately, slashing just .179/.233/.286 with a 50 percent strikeout rate over seven games since his 17-game hitting streak came to an end July 28. However, the outfielder hasn't been entirely absent for his fantasy managers during that stretch, as he has a homer and a pair of steals despite the poor hitting. Moniak has played well enough this season to hold down an everyday spot even in the midst of a cold spell, especially while Mike Trout remains out with a wrist injury. Moniak is slashing .312/.345/.563 with 12 long balls, 16 doubles, 37 RBI, 30 runs and five thefts overall through 226 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Clubs homer in loss
Moniak went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 9-7 loss to the Mariners.
Moniak's fifth-inning blast tied the game at 7-7, but the Angels' offense stalled out there. The outfielder snapped a 13-game homer drought, a span in which he hit .246 (14-for-57) with three RBI. Despite his recent downturn, he still has a strong .311/.342/.566 slash line with 12 homers, 37 RBI, 30 runs scored and four stolen bases over 57 contests this season. Moniak's playing time is likely to remain steady at least until Mike Trout (wrist) can return to action.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Mickey Moniak: Back in lineup Thursday
Moniak (foot) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.
Moniak sat out Wednesday's series finale in Atlanta due to nagging foot soreness, but he will be in center field and bat sixth as the Angels open a four-game set versus Seattle. The 25-year-old former Phillies prospect has broken out to the tune of a .317/.349/.566 batting line with 11 homers and four steals through 55 games (215 plate appearances) this season with the Halos....
