Angels activated INF Anthony Rendon from the 10-day injured list. Rendon has been sidelined since May 5 after fouling a ball off his left knee, resulting in a contusion. The star third baseman had previously missed time with a groin injury earlier this season, so the Angels are no doubt very excited to have Rendon back in the mix.
Boston Red Sox DFS Spin
Hunter Renfroe went 2-for-3 and hit a two-run homer Friday as the Red Sox topped the Angels 4-3. Renfroe is up to .327 with four homers and 11 RBI in 13 games this month. That comes with a 10/0 K/BB ratio, which isn't ideal, and his April was bad enough that his OPS for the season remains under .700. The Red Sox will take it, though, given how bad he looked a few weeks ago.
