Athletics | Josh Phegley catching Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:38:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is back in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 5, batting fifth. C/1B Stephen Vogt, who was behind the plate Saturday, July 4, will play first base and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .273 overall but is hitting .321 versus lefties this season, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups this afternoon.

Athletics | Ike Davis in lineup Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:13:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will bat sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, July 4. C/1B Stephen Vogt, who played first base Friday, July 3, will catch Saturday, with C Josh Phegley getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: With Hernandez on the mound, Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. He is 1-for-5 against the righty in his career.

Athletics | Josh Phegley hitting fifth

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:29:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and hit fifth in the order Thursday, July 2, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Roenis Elias. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is crushing left-handed pitching to the tune of a .340 batting average this season. Phegley is worth a start any time he's facing a southpaw, and he offers a measure of cap relief to FantasyScore owners.

Athletics | Ike Davis sitting out

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:36:48 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not starting against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Tuesday, June 30. C Stephen Vogt is starting at first base, which allows C Josh Phegley to enter the starting lineup. OF Mark Canha is starting in left field and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be an excellent value play to save money at other positions tonight. He's sporting a .362/.423/.617 line with three of his five home runs off lefties in 47 at-bats this year. On the other hand, Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) and Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are weaker plays. Vogt has just one of his 13 long balls off lefties and Canha has just seven hits in 59 at-bats (.119) against southpaws in 2015.

Athletics | Billy Butler sitting out

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:58:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Saturday, June 27. C Stephen Vogt will be the designated hitter and is batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and is a solid option for owners on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt will be DH

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:50:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt will serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Saturday, June 27, and is batting third in the lineup. C Josh Phegley will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is receiving a day off from catcher but is still in the lineup. Vogt has recorded at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and is a solid option for owners on FantasyScore. Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .333 this month with three home runs and seven RBI over his last five games. He could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt continues to hit

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:40:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is 17-for-35 (.486) in his last nine games, and he's also hitting .441 against the Texas Rangers this year.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) went 3-for-5 with a run scored in a sweep of the Rangers Thursday afternoon. He continues to be one of the safest catching options on FantasyScore. A tennis elbow he's been dealing with recently that required a cortisone shot Sunday doesn't appear to be an issue at all.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt enjoying hot streak

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:41:04 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (elbow) returned to the lineup Wednesday, June 24, against the Texas Rangers. He finished 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and two RBIs. He played first base instead of catcher after having a cortisone shot Sunday, June 21. It was his 10th start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,000; or 10.0% of cap) is 11-for-23 (.478) with five runs scored and eight RBIs during his current six-game hitting streak. He is a must-have in FantasyScore now that he has proven his health in a full game.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt returns to the lineup

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:39:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (elbow) is starting at first base and batting third against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) hasn't played since Sunday, June 21, but he has an active five game hitting streak and two home runs, 11 RBI and a 1.333 OPS over his past seven games (six starts). Still, Vogt is dealing with tennis elbow and received a cortisone shot Sunday, so there is risk for FantasyScore players, especially at his hefty salary.

Athletics | Ike Davis sitting vs. lefty

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:55:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. C Stephen Vogt is starting at first base and batting third against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) only has 10 at-bats against lefties this season, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. He has started the last four games against righties, and he should be viewed as a low-end first baseman in all formats. FantasyScore players should only turn to Davis when he faces a favorable opposing right-handed pitcher.
