Athletics | Coco Crisp, Stephen Vogt out

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 14:32:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp and C Stephen Vogt are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Friday, July 1. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field and is hitting seventh, while C Josh Phegley is catching and batting eighth. Also, 2B Jed Lowrie moves into the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp and Vogt are sitting the bench with a left-hander on the mound. Smolinski and Phegley have some success against right-handers and can be considered as sleeper options in daily games, but their placement near the bottom of the order limits their upside.

Athletics | Oakland resting four starters

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 11:00:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns, C Stephen Vogt, 2B Jed Lowrie and 3B Max Muncy are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 26. OF Coco Crisp will start in center field, while OF Khris Davis will start in left field. 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth. OF Jake Smolinski will start in right field and is batting sixth. C Josh Phegley will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Arismendy Alcantara will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler, Smolinski and Phegley has posted decent numbers in their limited playing time this season but are not strong options in most leagues. Alcantara has gone 1-for-4 since being recalled and should be avoided in all leagues at this point.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt sitting out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 10:03:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 22, with 2B Jed Lowrie hitting third. C Josh Phegley is hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie is hitting just .262 with one RBI in 65 at-bats this month. Moving into a prime spot in the order gives him some upside against Junior Guerra, though. Phegley is hitting close to .300 this month and is worth a basement play.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie dropped in batting order

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:50:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is hitting sixth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Friday, June 17. OF Billy Burns moves up to the leadoff spot as a result.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie makes solid contact and hits for average (.294) but doesn't provide fantasy owners with much else (one home run, 19 RBI, no steals). That makes him more of an AL-only guy, and he doesn't appeal to those in daily contests, either. Burns has 30-steal potential and gains daily value in the leadoff spot. He's a sleeper in DFS Friday night.

Athletics | Three A's regulars out

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:54:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie, OF Billy Burns and C Stephen Vogt are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cesar Ramos Monday, June 13. SS Tyler Ladendorf is starting at second base and is hitting ninth, 1B Billy Butler is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth and C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting sixth. Also, SS Marcus Semien is hitting in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Ladendorf is the least attractive DFS play tonight. Avoid him. The others have sleeper potential while facing a starter without much major league experience at all. Semien's daily value increases the most with the move up the order, and he slugged his 12th homer of the year yesterday.

Astros | Luke Gregerson blows fifth save

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 19:21:18 -0700

Houston Astros RP Luke Gregerson blew his fifth save of the season, allowing a game-tying home run to Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie Saturday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson's hold on the closer's gig has to be tenuous after back-to-back blown saves. Ken Giles is the likely candidate to take over the role, but Will Harris and his 0.35 ERA could be a sleeper candidate.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie back at second base

Wed, 25 May 2016 16:11:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie is back at second base and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Wednesday, May 25, after being activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Double check to see if Lowrie was dropped by his previous owners in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He's not bad in those setups for middle infield depth, as the switch-hitter is batting .302 on the season. He has little power, though, and also hasn't stolen a base this season.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie returning Wednesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 18:14:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 25, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie likely will be an everyday player for Oakland once he is activated but may struggle at the plate early on. He is hitting .302 so far this season and is a low-end option in deeper mixed leagues. Owners in daily fantasy leagues may want to see him play in a game or two before considering him as a starting candidate.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie eyeing Wednesday return

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:10:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) will play with Class AAA Nasvhille in Las Vegas Monday, May 23, before being activated from the disabled list to start against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie is a low-end option in mixed leagues, and owners will hope the injury hasn't derailed his respectable start to the season. Lowrie had a .302 batting average with 17 RBI before being placed on the DL Wednesday, May 11. Tyler Ladendorf will lose any minimal fantasy value he had with Lowrie's activation.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie may miss minimum time

Wed, 18 May 2016 11:03:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Jed Lowrie (shin) is running again Wednesday, May 18, and he thinks he could need just one rehab game to return when he's eligible May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie was off to a .302 start with 17 RBI. Tyler Ladendorf and Chris Coghlan have platooned in his stead, but neither threatens his spot when he's ready. Lowrie is a low-end mixed leaguer when he returns.
