Athletics | Stephen Vogt back in the lineup

Sun, 22 May 2016 11:59:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (wrist) is in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Sunday, May 22, and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt has posted decent numbers so far this season and is hitting .286 over the last seven days. Vogt will have some risk because of his injury but should be considered a starting option in some leagues.

Athletics | Several OAK regulars back in lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:49:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns, 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B Chris Coghlan are back in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, May 21. In addition, C Matt McBride will bat eighth and start behind the plate, while INF Maxwell Muncy bats ninth and plays the hot corner. C/1B Stephen Vogt is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start this season, Alonso is batting .296 over the past four weeks, although he has just one home run and eight RBI over 71 at-bats. At the other end of the spectrum, Coghlan is hitting just .152 over that same stretch and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. McBride and Muncy should be viewed as little more than sources of desperation cap relief.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt back in the lineup

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:02:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) returned to the lineup Wednesday, May 18, and he's hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt is facing left-hander Martin Perez, and he's 4-for-18 (.222) against lefties this year. He's not a real good start in DFS today.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt absent Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:26:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) is out of the starting lineup once again Tuesday, May 17. C Matt McBride is behind the plate again and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt's thumb injury isn't believed to be serious, so the A's are probably playing it cautious and electing to sit him against two left-handed pitchers the last two games. Keep tabs on his status and return him to lineups everywhere once he returns. McBride doesn't deserve attention in any fantasy format.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt remains out

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:44:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 16. C Matt McBride is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: X-rays on Vogt's thumb were negative, so he could return to the lineup any day now. McBride will start with Josh Phegley also dinged up. McBride has only three at-bats on the year and just 161 plate appearances in the majors in four years. Avoid him everywhere.

Athletics | X-rays negative for Stephen Vogt

Sun, 15 May 2016 16:56:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) was hit in the thumb by a pitch Sunday, May 15, but X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt has struggled at the plate this year, and his value is limited to AL-only and two-catcher formats right now.

Athletics | Coco Crisp out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:03:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Saturday, May 14. OF Billy Burns will lead off and play center field, while C Matt McBride will bat ninth and start behind the plate. C Stephen Vogt will bat fifth and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Burns is batting .316 (6-for-19) over the past week and is worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups. McBride is making his A's debut after spending parts of the previous three seasons with the Colorado Rockies and he should be viewed as nothing more than a source of desperation cap relief.

Athletics | Josh Phegley draws into lineup

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:05:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting at catcher and hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Monday, May 9. C Stephen Vogt is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley is hitting over .300 in 33 at-bats this year but didn't fare so well against righties (.220/.277/.431) with four of his nine home runs against right-handers last year. He's facing an inconsistent pitcher in Buchholz, but the low lineup position limits Phegley's daily ceiling tonight.

Athletics | Three A's out for nightcap

Sat, 07 May 2016 14:23:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt, OF Coco Crisp and 3B Danny Valencia are out for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, May 7. C Josh Phegley is hitting eighth, 1B Billy Butler is hitting sixth and 3B Chris Coghlan hits fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley has a .310 average on the season and could be a sneaky basement flyer against Ubaldo Jimenez. Cogs is hitting just .155 and .118 in the last seven days. He has four homers and 11 RBI, and the matchup is nice. We could see streaming him tonight. Butler has been a shell of his former self this year, and he's not worth the start.

Athletics | Josh Phegley draws into lineup

Tue, 03 May 2016 15:40:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and is hitting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Tuesday, May 3. OF Coco Crisp will start on the bench. C Stephen Vogt is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: You could certainly do worst than Phegley if you're looking for low-priced catching options in DFS action, but keep in mind the A's backup catcher hit only .220 with four of his nine home runs against right-handers in 2015.
