News: Pennington (illness) is back in the lineup for Sunday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Pennington had been recovering from flu-like symptoms over the last few days, but he'll be back in action at second base Sunday. The veteran infielder is competing for a utility role with the Angels, but even if he makes the Opening Day roster, don't expect him to see enough at-bats to make much of an impact in the fantasy realm.

News: Pennington is dealing with flu-like symptoms, Maria Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Impact: It's unknown whether the illness has set him back at all in spring training, but it's likely nothing too serious at this point. Pennington hit just .209 in 74 games with the Angels last season and is likely to serve as a reserve infielder in 2017 behind Andrelton Simmons and Danny Espinosa. Consider him day-to-day for now.

News: Pennington looks to be the primary backup middle infielder for the Angels again this season, the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Pennington served as a backup at both second and short last season, batting .209 with three homers and 10 RBI in 188 plate appearances. Those numbers are lacking for a major league bat, but his solid defense down the middle will keep him around as a backup to Andrelton Simmons and Danny Espinosa.
