Athletics | Eric Sogard undergoes knee surgery

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 17:38:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Eric Sogard (knee, neck) said he expects to miss at least six weeks after undergoing left knee surgery Wednesday, April 20. The surgery was done by Dr. James Andrews, who performed a debridement of the patellar tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard had been on the disabled list due to a neck strain but his knee problems date back to last season. In a best-case scenario, he won't be able to resume playing before early June. When healthy, Sogard should be viewed as nothing more than middle infield depth for AL-only fantasy leagues.

Athletics | Eric Sogard progressing nicely

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 10:36:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard (neck) is making good progress after doing conditioning drills Monday, April 4. He's expected to take swings in the cages Tuesday, April 5, and is scheduled to face SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) in batting practice Wednesday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard is a utility infielder for the A's that won't play everyday. He doesn't have much power, either, and his fantasy value lies strictly in AL-only leagues for infield depth.

Athletics | Eric Sogard might begin rehab soon

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 22:28:24 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard (neck) has improved rapidly, and he might hit off of SP Henderson Alvarez Wednesday, April 6. If all goes well he could be sent out on a minor-league rehab assignment starting this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard is a utility player eligible at multiple positions, but his fantasy value is limited to AL-only formats.

Athletics | Eric Sogard to DL

Sat, 02 Apr 2016 09:17:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard (neck) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical strain Saturday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard has served mainly as a super-utility infielder for Oakland, and he didn't have much value to fantasy owners in mixed leagues. Jed Lowrie will likely serve as the everyday second baseman for the A's. He has some notable power at the keystone, but his injury history makes him risky in mixed leagues.

Athletics | Chris Coghlan a super-utility type

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 11:02:26 -0800

Oakland Athletics OF Chris Coghlan is expected to fill a super-utility role with his new team, and he can back up 3B Danny Valencia and 2B Jed Lowrie on the infield, in addition to being a reserve outfielder. 2B Eric Sogard previously was slotted as the utility infielder, so his role is up in the air.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Oakland doesn't change Coghlan's outlook all that much. He'll have to fight for playing time around the diamond, but he could see a new avenue to PT in the infield. Power takes a bit of a hit at O.Co Coliseum, but his speed plays, too, and should give him usefulness in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Marcus Semien out Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 17:04:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Friday, Oct. 2. INF Eric Sogard will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Semien ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 4-for-13 with seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 5-for-17 versus Iwakuma in his career with a pair of doubles. FantasyScore owners looking for a productive source of cap relief should consider him tonight.

Athletics | No Billy Butler against Angels

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:47:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. 2B Eric Sogard draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Butler ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) Wednesday, but it is worth noting he is finishing the season strong with a .316/.368/.551 slash line in September. FantasyScore players should view Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as an ill-advised start Wednesday. He owns a career .314 slugging percentage and offers zero upside.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie starting at second base

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:20:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie will bat seventh and play second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Saturday, Sept. 26. INF Eric Sogard, who played second base Friday, Sept. 25, will play shortstop Saturday, with SS Marcus Semien receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 against Hudson in his career, FantasyScore owners may want to think twice about using him. He is just 2-for-20 at the plate over the past seven days.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie resting Friday

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 17:14:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Friday, Sept. 25. Danny Valencia will bat cleanup and play third base, while Eric Sogard will bat second and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) should be removed from all starting lineups. Valencia ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is batting .391 with two home runs and six RBIs over the past seven days, while Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .318 with one home run and three RBIs during the month of September.

Athletics | Marcus Semien sitting against Texas

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 15:09:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Semien ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is having a respectable sophomore season, but Semien shouldn't be confused as anything more than a low-end shortstop option in deep mixed leagues. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .573 OPS through the past two seasons, and he is nothing more than a desperation flier at FantasyScore Wednesday.
