Analysis: After going 5 for 37 with just two RBIs over his previous 12 games, Valbuena broke out with his first multi-homer effort of his otherwise disappointing season.

July 15 8:23 AM PT9:23 AM MT10:23 AM CT11:23 AM ET11:23 ET15:23 GMT23:23 8:23 AM MST10:23 AM EST10:53 AM VEN19:23 UAE10:23 AM CT-Luis Valbuena went 0 for 4 Friday as the Los Angeles Angels fell to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-1. He ended the game with a .181 batting average.
Analysis: Valbuena's lone fantasy asset is his power, but he's homered just once over his last 17 games. Mired in a 5-for-37 slump in which he's knocked in only two runs, he should remain on the bench or the waiver wire for the time being.
