Athletics | Several OAK regulars sitting out Sunday

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:22:12 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt, 1B Yonder Alonso and OFs Max Muncy and Billy Burns are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Sunday, June 12. 1B Billy Butler will bat fifth and play first base, while C Josh Phegley will bat seventh and start behind the plate. In addition, OF Khris Davis (hand) will bat cleanup and play left field, while OF Jake Smolinski starts in right field and bats eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The A's are facing a left-handed pitcher this afternoon, which explains why their lineup is stocked with right-handed batters and switch hitters. Phegley and Smolinski should be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in daily fantasy games.

Athletics | Danny Valencia out again vs. Brewers

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 12:52:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (illness) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 8. 1B Yonder Alonso is starting at third base and batting sixth, and DH Billy Butler is starting at first base and batting fifth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Chase Anderson Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has missed some time this season and been limited to just 155 plate appearances, but he's made the most of them and posted a .343/.387/.580 slash line with 26 runs, nine home runs and 22 RBI. He should be owned in all fantasy formats. Alonso and Butler are low-end options in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, and you likely should aim higher in daily contests Wednesday.

Athletics | Danny Valencia not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 12:46:12 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not starting Tuesday, June 7, against the Milwaukee Brewers. 1B Yonder Alonso is shifting to third for this game and will bat sixth against Brewers SP Zach Davies.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is on a tear at the plate with a .343-9-22 line, but the team wants to give him a night off. Alonso is 6-for-15 in the past week with two doubles and has done pretty well at the plate in the past three games. He is worth a flyer in DFS formats.

Athletics | Three A's regulars take a seat

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:45:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt, 1B Yonder Alonso and OF Chris Coghlan are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers left-handed SP Pat Dean Wednesday, June 1. C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting sixth, 1B Billy Butler is at first base and hitting fifth and OF Jake Smolinski is in right field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley and Butler could make an impact in daily games as sleepers at their respective positions, but Smolinski is one to avoid hitting lower in the lineup.

Athletics | Several OAK regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 11:18:24 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt, 1B Yonder Alonso and OF Chris Coghlan are out of the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd Saturday, May 28. 1B Billy Butler will bat sixth and play first base, C Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and bat seventh and OF Jake Smolinski will bat ninth and patrol right field.

Fantasy Tip: Butler, Phegley and Smolinski are all batting under .200 this month and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation sources of cap relief in daily fantasy games.

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 | Yonder Alonso, Chris Coghlan out

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:16:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B/OF Chris Coghlan are out of the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Wednesday, May 18. 1B Billy Butler is starting at first base and is hitting sixth, while INF Tyler Ladendorf is starting at the keystone and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's the fourth straight lefty the A's are facing, and it's clear that Oakland would rather sit Alonso and Coghlan against southpaws. Butler has very minimal upside without a lot of extra-base prowess these days. Ladendorf doesn't move the fantasy needle at all.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso out again

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:22:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup again against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Tuesday, May 17. 1B Billy Butler draws the start at first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso is out for the second straight day since the team is facing another southpaw. Expect this to be the norm moving forward. Butler had a hit and and RBI last night but is hitting just .224 and has virtually no fantasy upside left. He's a low-end daily option against Hamels.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso, Chris Coghlan sitting

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:42:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B Chris Coghlan are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Monday, May 16. 1B Billy Butler is starting at first base and hitting sixth, while 2B Tyler Ladendorf is at the keystone and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Only consider Butler or Ladendorf for your daily lineups if you're desperate for salary cap relief. Butler is hitting .218 (12-for-55) with no home runs on the year and Ladendorf is extremely limited offensively, especially hitting at the bottom of the order.

Athletics | Danny Valencia still out Wednesday

Wed, 11 May 2016 12:40:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 11. 1B Yonder Alonso is starting at third base again and is hitting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello. 1B Billy Butler sees another start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia had just returned from a DL stint for the same hamstring late last week, so be prepared for another trip to the disabled list. Stay tuned for updates on his status. Alonso is barely hitting over .200 and doesn't have much pop to speak of, making him a low-end corner infielder to use in daily games. The veteran Butler has a similar profile.
