Angels' Luis Rengifo: Moved to 60-day IL
The Angels transferred Rengifo (biceps) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list Thursday.
This is simply a procedural move, as Rengifo had already been ruled out for the remainder of the 2023 season after suffering a ruptured left biceps tendon last week. The 26-year-old posted a .783 OPS with 16 homers, 51 RBI, six steals and 55 runs scored across 126 games this year.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Season over after biceps injury
Rengifo was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a biceps tendon rupture, an injury which is expected to be season-ending, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
The injury is poorly timed for Rengifo, who was on a tear at the plate. In his last 16 games, he slashed .443/.471/.770 with five homers. He'll finish the season with a .264/.339/.444 line, an improvement on his .264/.294/.429 performance from a year prior.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Set for additional tests
Rengifo will undergo additional testing on his injured biceps in the next few days, Doug Padilla of The Orange Country Register reports.
Rengifo was injured while taking a practice swing in the on-deck circle during Thursday's game, and he was subsequently diagnosed with a biceps injury. The utility man said Friday that he was feeling better, though he was wearing a brace on his left elbow, and Angels manager Phil Nevin stated that his prognosis "doesn't look great." The injury comes at a particularly unfortunate time for Rengifo, as he was in the midst of his best offensive stretch of the campaign, riding a 14-game hitting streak during which he slashed .446/.476/.804 with five homers, 14 RBI, nine runs and a stolen base....

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Suffers strained bicep
Rengifo exited Thursday's game with a strained left bicep, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Rengifo was forced to leave the game after suffering the injury in the on deck circle in the first inning. Randal Grichuk entered the game as a pinch hitter, and Rengifo's likely absence should benefit both Grichuk and Trey Cabbage.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Exits in first inning
Rengifo exited Thursday's game against the Guardians in the first inning, Sarah Valenzuela of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Homers in loss
Rengifo went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 10-3 loss to the Orioles.
Rengifo got the Angels on the board with his third-inning blast, but they never threatened for a comeback. The 26-year-old has been one of the team's hottest hitters lately -- he extended his hitting streak to 14 games, a span in which he's gone 25-for-56 (.446) with nine extra-base hits. Rengifo is up to a .264/.339/.444 slash line with 16 homers, 51 RBI, 55 runs scored and six stolen bases through 125 contests. He needs one more homer and one more RBI to match his career-best totals from last year.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Plates team's only run
Rengifo went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Athletics.
Rengifo put the Angels on the board with a first-inning sacrifice fly, but that was the only run the team managed in the loss. Notably, Rengifo started in right field for the second straight game, and it appears he could see most of his action there down the stretch with Los Angeles taking a look at some of its younger players in the infield. Rengifo has been arguably the team's top hitter of late, slashing .474/.511/.816 with three homers, 10 RBI, six runs and a stolen base during his current 10-game hit streak.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Playing right field Friday
Rengifo is starting in right field and batting second Friday at Oakland.
Rengifo looks poised to see more outfield action down the stretch as the Angels work in September call-up Kyren Paris at shortstop and second base. Paris is playing short and hitting ninth in his MLB debut Friday versus the Athletics.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Goes deep twice Tuesday
Rengifo went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 12-7 loss against the Phillies.
The 26-year-old utility man hit a pair of solo homers Tuesday, each coming off Phillies starter Michael Lorenzen. Rengifo has now hit safely in seven consecutive contests, boasting an eye-popping slash line of .556/.625/1.037 with two doubles, one triple, three home runs, eight RBI, six runs scored and just two strikeouts alongside five walks during that stretch....

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Homers Sunday
Rengifo went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 3-2 loss against the Mets.
Rengifo put the Angels ahead 2-1 in the eighth inning with a 417-foot blast off Drew Smith, his 12th homer of the year. The 26-year-old Rengifo has been on a tear of late, going 11-for-23 (.478) with four extra-base hits in his last seven contests. Overall, his slash line is up to .247/.333/.410with 50 runs scored, 42 RBI and five steals across 405 plate appearances as he continues to see steady playing time in a utility role.... See More ...

Angels' Luis Rengifo: On base four times in loss
Rengifo went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple, two runs scored and an RBI in a 9-4 loss to the Reds during the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.
The super-utility player did his job from the leadoff spot, but the Angels' offense had trouble cashing him in, particularly after Shohei Ohtani was removed as the DH after complaining of arm fatigue while on the mound. Rengifo has run hot and cold all season, but it's been mostly the latter in August -- he's batting .268 (19-for-71) over his last 20 games with just one homer, five RBI and nine runs.... See More ...

Angels' Luis Rengifo: On bench Tuesday
Rengifo is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Reds.
Rengifo has been starting regularly at shortstop with Zach Neto (back) on the 10-day injured list, but he'll get the night off Tuesday. Andrew Velazquez will start in his place and bat ninth.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Homers in Friday's loss
Rengifo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the Mariners.
Rengifo logged his seventh multi-hit effort in his last 13 games, a span in which he's batting .315 (17-for-54) with nine extra-base hits. It looked like his path to everyday playing time would close with Brandon Drury (shoulder) returning from the injured list Friday, but Zach Neto (back) was placed on the IL as the corresponding move. With Neto sidelined, Rengifo will likely take over the starting shortstop job in the interim and retain the leadoff gig. Rengifo is slashing just .230/.318/.397 on the year with 11 homers, 34 RBI, 42 runs scored and five stolen bases through 96 contests, but he's been hot enough lately to warrant a look outside of AL-only formats....

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Shines again out of leadoff spot
Rengifo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk against Atlanta on Monday in a 4-1 victory.
Rengifo gave Los Angeles a quick lead when he belted a solo shot on Charlie Morton's third pitch of the game. Rengifo finished with multiple hits for the third straight day, and he's collected three extra-base knocks while going 6-for-12 with three walks over that span. The utility man is seeing everyday at-bats for the time being, though that may change in the near future with Brandon Drury (shoulder) nearing a rehab assignment and subsequent return....

Angels' Luis Rengifo: Gets another turn as leadoff man
Rengifo will start at second base and bat leadoff in Sunday's game in Toronto, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
With Zach Neto having now sat out seven times in the Angels' last eight games due to back issues, Rengifo has received a temporary look as the Angels' table setter. Since Neto first exited the lineup July 22, Rengifo has reached base in each of the last seven contests while slashing .333/.375/.733 with six extra-base knocks.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Belts two homers
Rengifo went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
Rengifo went deep in the fifth and sixth innings Sunday, bringing him to nine home runs on the year. Five of those have come in the last 14 games and he's gone 12-for-40 (.300) during that span. Still, he's slashing just .220/.309/.365 with 29 RBI and 16 extra-base hits through 275 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Luis Rengifo: Garners fourth straight start
Rengifo will start at second base and bat leadoff in Sunday's game against the Pirates, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.
Rengifo will pick up a fourth consecutive start after going 3-for-10 with a home run and two walks over the Angels' prior three contests. At least until the Angels get Brandon Drury (shoulder) back from the 10-day injured list, Rengifo should have a fairly clear path to near-everyday playing time in the infield.... See More ...
