Player Outlook
Kevin Pillar spent the 2023 campaign with Atlanta and had a .228/.248/.416 slash line in 81 contests. The 35-year-old signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox in February, giving him a decent path to a roster spot. Pillar typically fared better against left-handed pitching throughout his career, but that was especially the case last season with a .734 OPS versus lefties compared to a .580 OPS against righties, likely setting up his best-case scenario as a short-side platoon option.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Plans to retire after season

    Pillar said Saturday that he's "98 percent sure" he'll retire from professional baseball after this season, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. Pillar made the revelation after reaching 10 years of service time, which means he will be eligible for a fully-vested pension. The 35-year-old struggled with the White Sox out of the gate this season but has slashed .305/.360/.516 in 42 games since joining the Angels in April.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Playing time drying up

    Pillar will start in right field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Athletics. Pillar had been a near-everyday player for the Angels for nearly five weeks, but he seems to have moved into a fourth-outfielder role. He'll be picking up just his second start since June 17, as he was excluded from the lineup in those other six contests. Jo Adell will hit the bench Wednesday to make room in the starting nine for Pillar.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Resting Monday

    Pillar is not in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Brewers, Brent Maguire of MLB.com reports. Pillar will begin Monday's game in the dugout after starting in each of the Angels' last seven games. Pillar is hitting .340 with six home runs and 25 RBI over 106 at-bats with the Halos this season, though he's gone 9-for-40 since June 1. With Pillar on the bench Monday, Willie Calhoun will serve as the designated hitter while Jo Adell starts in right field against Brewers right-hander Carlos Rodriguez.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Making seventh straight start

    Pillar will start in center field and bat cleanup in Sunday's game against the Giants, Erica Weston of Bally Sports West reports. Pillar will pick up his seventh straight start and may have pushed his way into a near-everyday role in the Angels outfield while he's been at a heater at the plate for more than a month now. Dating back to May 7, Pillar is slashing .351/.394/.629 with six home runs, four stolen bases, 24 RBI and 21 runs in 27 games. Pillar's much more modest offensive outputs over parts of the previous 11 seasons in the big leagues suggest he won't be able to maintain his current level of production for much longer, but fantasy managers should ride the wave while it lasts.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Clubs homer in loss

    Pillar went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 7-1 loss to the Astros. Pillar had gone 1-for-10 over his first four games in June before this multi-hit effort. His second-inning homer was all the Angels could put up against Framber Valdez, who pitched a complete game. Pillar is up to seven homers, 26 RBI, 17 runs scored and a .324/.379/.590 slash line over 117 plate appearances between the Angels and the White Sox this season. Despite his strong numbers recently, he's been on the bench for two of the last five games, which suggests Pillar doesn't have a full-time role against right-handed pitchers.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Homers in three-hit game

    Pillar went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Yankees. Pillar has hit safely in his last 11 games, going 20-for-41 (.488) in that span. He's logged a trio of three-hit efforts during the streak. The outfielder is up to a .349/.402/.639 slash line with six homers, 24 RBI, 14 runs scored, six stolen bases, four doubles and a triple over 34 contests this season. He struggled initially with the White Sox, but he's been excellent since joining the Angels at the end of April.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Pillar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's contest in Houston, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Pillar hit a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Astros and has been scorching hot since joining the Angels, putting up a 1.226 OPS with four long balls and four stolen bases. He's still not quite being treated like an everyday player, however, as he's now been out of the lineup three of the last four times the Halos have faced a righty.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Swats homer in defeat

    Pillar went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Astros. Pillar took Bryan Abreu deep in the seventh to put the Angels back up 5-4 and extend his hitting streak to eight games. He's been on an absolute tear since signing with the Angels on April 30. In the month of May, Pillar is slashing .426/.460/.766 with four homers, 17 RBI, 12 runs and a 2:9 BB:K through 14 games. Prior to his release from the White Sox on April 26, the 35-year-old was slashing just .160/.290/.360 with a homer, four RBI, a run scored and a 4:8 BB:K through 17 games.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Swipes two bags Friday

    Pillar went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases against Texas in Friday's 9-3 victory. Pillar made the most of his two trips on base, notching a theft in the third and fifth frames. The veteran outfielder extended his hitting streak to five games, and he's been scorching hot during that stretch, going 11-for-20 with a homer, eight RBI, six runs and four stolen bases. Pillar has four career MLB campaigns with double-digit homers and steals, and he appears en route for a fifth with four long balls and six thefts in 28 contests this year.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Keeps hot bat going

    Pillar went 3-for-5 with one RBI and one run scored in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Cardinals. Pillar has a trio of three-hit efforts over his last six games, going 12-for-24 (.500) with 13 RBI and seven runs scored in that span. The outfielder's strong play has helped him seize a short-side platoon role in center field, though he was in the lineup over platoon partner Mickey Moniak against right-hander Sonny Gray in this contest. Through 26 contests between the Angels and the White Sox this year, Pillar owns a .309/.361/.618 slash line with four home runs, 17 RBI, eight runs scored and three stolen bases, with the majority of that production coming since he signed with the Angels at the end of April.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Continues to boost team's offense

    Pillar went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI in Monday's loss to the Cardinals. Pillar knocked in three of Los Angeles' five runs in the defeat, drilling a two-run homer in the third inning and adding an RBI single in the eighth. The veteran went just 1-for-6 through his first three games after joining the club April 30, but he's been on a heater of late, recording three multi-hit performances across his past five games. Over that span, he's batting ..474 (9-for-19) with three home runs, 12 RBI, six runs and a stolen base.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Another three-hit performance

    Pillar went 3-for-4 with a triple, three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Saturday's win over Kansas City. Pillar led off the bottom of the second with a triple before coming around to score on a three-run shot from Jo Adell as the Angels took a 3-1 lead. The recently acquired outfielder added two RBI singles on the night in addition to swiping his third bag of the season. Pillar has now tallied three hits in two of his last four contests, posting nine RBI and five runs scored over that stretch.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Homers twice

    Pillar went 3-for-5 with two home runs and six RBI during Tuesday's 9-0 win over the Pirates. Pillar made it a 3-0 ballgame with his three-run home run in the fourth inning, and his solo shot in the seventh gave the Angels a convincing 7-0 lead. The 35-year-old now sports an inflated .866 OPS through 43 plate appearances this season, but he shouldn't be relied on as a consistent source of production in fantasy.

  • Angels' Kevin Pillar: Signs with Halos

    Pillar signed a one-year, $740,000 contract with the Angels on Tuesday. Pillar elected to become a free agent Sunday after being DFA'd by the White Sox, and he'll now quickly find work with the Angels on a major-league deal. The 35-year-old slashed .160/.290/.360 across 32 plate appearances with the White Sox, and he'll give Los Angeles' outfield additional depth with Mike Trout (knee) in line for a long-term absence.

  • Kevin Pillar: Elects free agency

    Pillar has cleared waivers and elected to become a free agent from the White Sox, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports. Pillar was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Friday, and he'll now look for another opportunity elsewhere instead of reporting to Triple-A Charlotte. The outfielder has struggled to a .160 batting average with a home run, four RBI, a run scored and two stolen bases over 25 at-bats in 17 games this season.

  • White Sox's Kevin Pillar: Designated for assignment

    The White Sox designated Pillar for assignment Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The 35-year-old posted a .160/.290/.360 slash line through 32 plate appearances, and he'll lose his place on Chicago's 26-man and 40-man rosters to make room for Tommy Pham. Pillar could elect to become a free agent if he passes through waivers unclaimed.

  • White Sox's Kevin Pillar: Inks MLB deal with South Siders

    Pillar signed a major-league contract with the White Sox on Sunday. The veteran outfielder was cut loose by Chicago on Friday, but he'll end up rejoining the organization a couple days later. Pillar should serve as the White Sox's No. 4 outfielder and isn't likely to have much fantasy utility.

  • Kevin Pillar: Released by White Sox

    The White Sox released Pillar on Friday. Pillar signed a minor-league deal with Chicago in the offseason and was looking to claim a spot on the White Sox's bench, but he will miss the cut and instead go back onto the market. The veteran went 11-for-44 during spring training while driving in five RBI, and he may attract interest from other teams looking for organizational outfield depth.

  • White Sox's Kevin Pillar: Signs with ChiSox

    Pillar signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Friday. Pillar appeared in 81 games with Atlanta last season, slashing .228/.248/.416 with nine homers and 32 homers across 206 plate appearances. The 35-year-old outfielder figures to compete for a roster spot during spring training, though Pillar's role likely caps out as a short-side platoon partner for Oscar Colas.

  • Braves' Kevin Pillar: Drives in three in doubleheader

    Pillar went 2-for-6 with a two-run home run and an additional RBI over both games of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Nationals. Pillar's homer came in the nightcap, giving Atlanta a 4-3 lead in the fourth inning. He's slumped lately, going 4-for-24 (.167) over his last nine contests with just five RBI. For the season, the veteran outfielder is at a .227/.247/.411 slash line with eight long balls, 30 RBI, 26 runs scored and four stolen bases through 77 contests in a platoon role.
