Player Outlook
Zachary Neto began the season with Double-A Rocket City but was soon promoted to the majors. After a slow start, he raised his OPS to .769 but was placed on the IL in mid-June with a left oblique strain. Neto returned after the All-Star break, posting a .566 OPS over the next three weeks. Neto revisited the IL, this time with back stiffness. He came back in early September but continued to struggle with a .547 OPS over the last 17 games of the season. Neto possesses below average power with enough speed to generate double-digit stolen bases; his primary asset is getting on base. In part because he hit more fly balls than he did in the minors, Neto's .272 BABIP was low. The expectation is for it to increase as Neto gets more acclimated to major league pitching. Even so, Neto has limited mixed league appeal, though he could be more useful if his on-base skills warrant one of the top-two spots in the Angels lineup.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Productive at plate

    Neto went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Orioles. Neto now has two hits in back-to-back games and has notched an extra-base hit in both games as well. Prior to this mini outburst, Neto was slashing .167/.241/.208 with just three doubles, six RBI, four runs and a 6:25 BB:K in 78 plate appearances. He's now raised his average to .205 as he looks to continue to pick up steam at the plate.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Takes seat Saturday

    Neto isn't in the Angels' lineup for Saturday's game against Cincinnati, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

He'll give way to Luis Rengifo, who will bat seventh Saturday.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Two steals in Tampa Bay

    Neto went 1-for-4 with an RBI and two stolen bases in Tuesday's 7-6 extra-innings loss to the Rays. The Angels turned on the jets once Rene Pinto took over behind the plate for the Rays in the ninth inning, with Neto collecting both his steals in the late innings as part of a 5-for-6 performance on the basepaths by Los Angeles on the night. The shortstop has struggled out of the gate this season -- the 23-year-old hasn't had a multi-hit game since April 6, and through 16 contests he's slashing .179/.258/.232 with zero homers, three runs, six RBI and three steals in five attempts. Neto's 29.0 percent strikeout rate is also a significant step back from the 23.4 percent mark he posted as a rookie.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Returning to action

    Neto (illness) is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff in Friday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. The 23-year-old is expected to bat ninth for the Angels this season, but he'll hit atop the lineup Friday after sitting out the past two days with an illness. Neto struggled offensively as a rookie last season with a .225/.308/.377 slash line in 84 contests.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Recovering from flu

    Neto is out of the lineup for Thursday's spring game against the White Sox and has been unavailable recently due to the flu, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Registerreports. Neto will miss a second straight Cactus League start Thursday, but he's feeling better and was able to go through a pregame workout. It sounds like he should be ready to return to action in a day or two. Luis Rengifo will handle shortstop again while Neto rests.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Slated to bat ninth

    Angels manager Ron Washington said Thursday that Neto will bat ninth this season, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Neto will have an opportunity to hit his way to a higher spot in the batting order over time, but for now he'll be stuck at the bottom.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Not starting Saturday

    Neto isn't in the Angels' lineup Saturday against Minnesota, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Not starting Sunday

    Neto is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Neto is 1-for-20 with three walks, a run and eight strikeouts since being activated from the injured list last weekend, so he'll take a seat for Sunday's series finale. David Fletcher will work at shortstop and bat second.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Eyeing return next week

    Angels manager Phil Nevin said Wednesday that Neto (back) will remain on his rehab assignment at Triple-A Salt Lake through Saturday before being re-evaluated, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Neto could be activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Sunday's series finale versus the Guardians if the Angels' training staff is satisfied with his health upon re-evaluating him, but it's more likely that the shortstop returns to the Anaheim lineup early next week. The 22-year-old has gone 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a walk through the first two games of his rehab assignment and will have off Thursday before returning to the Salt Lake lineup Friday and Saturday. Once activated, Neto should take back the reins as the Halos' everyday shortstop while rookie Kyren Paris fades into more a utility role or gets optioned back to Triple-A.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Rehab assignment Tuesday

    Neto (back) will begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Salt Lake, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. Neto will need a brief rehab assignment, as he has been out since Aug. 3 with the back injury, but it's possible he will be back later this week. Once activated, he should assume the everyday shortstop duties, at which point Kyren Paris may head back to the minor leagues.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Approaching rehab assignment

    Angels manager Phil Nevin said Friday that Neto (back) hasn't experienced any setbacks since going on the injured list and is expected to begin a rehab stint during the week of Sept. 5, MLB.com reports. Neto has been on the shelf since Aug. 4 after dealing with back trouble for several weeks. He's progressed to participating in all on-field activities except hitting during warmups, though he's been taking swings in an indoor batting cage. Nevin indicated that Neto is pain-free, and as long as his upcoming rehab assignment goes off without a hitch, the rookie shortstop should be able to return to the major-league club in time to log several more weeks of action before the end of the regular season.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Hitless in return

    Neto went 0-for-5 with an RBI in a loss to the Astros on Friday. Neto returned from a one-month stay on the injured list and batted leadoff for Los Angeles. He wasn't able to reach base but did drive in a run on a second-inning groundout. Neto had been hitting at the bottom of the order prior to getting hurt, so it remains to be seen if he'll stick in the leadoff spot moving forward.

  • Angels' Zach Neto: Activated, leading off Friday

    Neto (oblique) is starting at shortstop and leading off Friday against the Astros, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Neto ends up missing exactly a month with an oblique strain.
