Pennington got the nod at the keystone against a left-handed pitcher Tuesday, going 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to Washington.
The veteran infielder has started six of the Angels' last 12 contests, but all six have come against southpaws. A strict platoon has developed at second base between Pennington and Kaleb Cowart, but the latter plays more and thus is the more desirable fantasy asset.
Pennington went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Tuesday as the Los Angeles Angels fell to the Washington Nationals 3-1. The homer was his second of the season. He ended the game with a .252 batting average.
His previous homer came on June 16.
Cliff Pennington went 2 for 4 Sunday as the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2. He ended the game with a .250 batting average.
Pennington started at the keystone and went 2-for-4 in Sunday's victory over the Mariners.
Kaleb Cowart has emerged as the Angels' primary option at second base, but Pennington has picked up starts in two of the club's last three games, which have both come against southpaws. While both players are switch hitters, the former has struggled against lefties since being called up (4-for-20) while the latter has experiences success against that handedness this season (10-for-34), so a platoon situation at the keystone appears to be developing in Los Angeles.
Cliff Pennington went 1 for 4 Friday as the Los Angeles Angels topped the Seattle Mariners 6-5. He ended the game with a .243 batting average.
