Athletics | Craig Gentry draws start

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:19:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Craig Gentry is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Wednesday, May 20. OF Coco Crisp (neck) is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting only .086 (3-for-35) with no homers and two RBI and should be an afterthought in daily games.

Athletics | Ike Davis placed on DL

Sun, 17 May 2015 10:13:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (quadriceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 17, because of a strained left quadriceps. The team also recalled OF Craig Gentry from Class AAA Nashville (Tenn.).

Fantasy Tip: Mark Canha ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Max Muncy ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could see time at first base while Davis is sidelined. Neither player is a great option for owners on FantasyScore but could be helpful against certain matchups.

Athletics | Coco Crisp back from DL

Wed, 06 May 2015 12:38:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (elbow) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, May 6, and OF Craig Gentry was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will likely be eased back into the starting lineup, however, with speedster Billy Burns ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) playing well at the top of the lineup this week. Crisp is an asset in AL-only and deep mixed leagues, but Burns has more upside all around. Burns is also much more of a value play at FantasyScore when he's in the lineup.

Athletics | Craig Gentry starting again

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:54:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Craig Gentry is starting again in left field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, April 29. OF Mark Canha is sitting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is seeing some love now in left field with Mark Canha ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) slumping after a hot start. Canha has just four hits in 23 at-bats and 10 K's since April 19. He shouldn't be kept around in any leagues besides deep AL-only formats. Gentry (.067, 0-1) doesn't offer much FantasyScore value while hitting ninth, and he's a weak play Wednesday evening.

Athletics | Craig Gentry starting in LF

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 16:15:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Craig Gentry is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Tuesday, April 28. OF Mark Canha is sitting the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has fallen on hard times lately after a strong start to the season. He hasn't started since Saturday and is hitting just .174 (4-for-23) with 10 strikeouts since April 19. You should look to bench Canha, too, in AL leagues. Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) shouldn't excite FantasyScore owners while hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Athletics | Sam Fuld sitting out vs. Astros

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:11:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is not in the starting lineup against the Houston Astros Friday, April 24. OF Craig Gentry is starting in center field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: This has been a consistent lefty vs. righty and vice versa platoon. Make sure to avoid Fuld ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is likely not worth starting, either. Gentry has gone 0-for-22 to start the season, after all.

Athletics | Sam Fuld sitting out Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:48:55 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Tuesday, April 21. OF Craig Gentry is starting in center field and hitting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Gentry ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitless in his 18 at-bats in 2015. He doesn't have much power to speak of and didn't particularly hit lefties all that well in 2014, but he's a sleeper nevertheless Tuesday night because of his positioning atop the A's lineup. Also, most FantasyScore owners are unlikely to look his way because he's currently hitless to begin the year.

Athletics | Coco Crisp moving to LF

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 10:20:16 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp will be moved from center field to left field this year in an effort to keep him healthy as he ages. OFs Craig Gentry and Sam Fuld will form a platoon in center field. Crips played in just 126 games in 2014 due to a lingering neck issue that he suffered while crashing into the outfield wall, and he hasn't played in more than 136 games since 2007. Crisp has appeared in left field 232 times in his 13-year career, including 138 times in 2205. Manager Bob Melvin expects Crisp to remain exclusively in left field this spring.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that the 35-year-old Crisp has had trouble staying healthy and on the field late in his career should tell you everything. When healthy, he's not a bad source for runs and stolen bases, but how much can you count on him? Consider him a late-round choice in deeper mixed leagues to round out your outfield group.
