Athletics | Eric Sogard in lineup Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:09:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard will bat eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, July 4. INF/OF Ben Zobrist, who played second base Friday, July 3, will start in left field Saturday and bat third.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting .308 over the past week and is 8-for-31 in his career against Hernandez. He is worth considering in FantasyScore if you need salary cap relief.

Mets | NY interested in Ben Zobrist

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:45:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is drawing the attention of the New York Mets, and sources for both teams say the two clubs have had talks. Zobrist, who is 14-for-35 with three home runs and four doubles in his last 10 games, can become a free agent after this season. However, there's no indication the teams are close to making a deal. It would likely take a couple of good prospects to land Zobrist from the A's.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has picked it up considerably with the bat after being slow out of the gates following knee surgery. A move to the NL East wouldn't drastically affect his fantasy value, although it would certainly be an upgrade moving out of pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist rolling right along

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 21:42:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs scored and two RBIs Tuesday, June 23, against the Texas Rangers. He is 13-for-31 (.419) with 15 runs scored, three home runs and 10 RBIs over the past nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) put on a show for scouts of the Washington Nationals, a team interested in his services. He is a must-play in FantasyScore until he starts to cool off.

Nationals | Nats taking look at Ben Zobrist

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:46:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B-OF Ben Zobrist is a player the Washington Nationals have interest. The team sent a high-level scout to watch the game between the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers Tuesday, June 23. The team has previously shown an interest in Zobrist.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) could be on the move, and it would be welcome news to fantasy owners if he were trade out of Oakland, perennially a pitcher's park.

Royals | KC looking at trade options

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:36:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist and Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake are on the radar of the Kansas City Chiefs as the trade deadline nears this summer, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: None of these three players would likely see a drastic boost in their fantasy value with a move to KC, although Cueto and Leake would definitely be a bit more attractive throwing pitches in a pitching-friendly environment instead of Great American Ballpark. AL-only owners definitely should take notice of potential NL targets crossing leagues this summer. Save your FAAB money.

Athletics | Eric Sogard not in the lineup

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 11:01:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Sunday, June 21. 2B Ben Zobrist will start at second base and is batting fourth, while OF Sam Fuld will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Zobrist ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games with eight RBI during that span and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .209 so far this season and is not a great option.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist heating up

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 05:34:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and three RBI during Oakland's 12-7 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is catching fire at the dish, and he currently has a .341/.400/.659 slash line over his past 11 games with 13 runs, two home runs and 10 RBI. The veteran has gone on torrid three-week stretches in the past that end up comprising significant chunks of his year-long counting stats. He is an excellent FantasyScore play at his current salary, and his seasonal value is on the rise, too.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist sitting

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 09:25:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup Thursday, June 18, in favor of 2B Eric Sogard.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't enough of an offensive player to use on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist serving as DH

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:33:55 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is serving as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Sunday, June 14, batting cleanup. INF Eric Sogard is playing second base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is only batting .169 over the past four weeks and is only hitting .202 on the season. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he shows signs of regaining his hitting stroke. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) offers little offense and is only useful in FantasyScore as salary cap relief.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist hitting cleanup

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 10:41:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is hitting cleanup against Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has done very little at the plate since returning from his knee injury earlier this year, and he's batting just .208 (20-for-96) with two home runs and 15 RBI on the year. Given the way Gonzalez has pitched in his first two starts of his career, Zobrist doesn't look like a particularly attractive FantasyScore play today.
