Athletics | Ike Davis returns to action

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:38:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will bat fifth and play first base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson July 26. DH/1B Billy Butler is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: With the A's playing an interleague series at a National League park this weekend, Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Butler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had both taken turns riding the pine over the last few days. Davis is 7-for-24 (.292) with two doubles in his career versus Hudson and is worth considering in FantasyScore if you need an inexpensive option at first base.

Athletics | Billy Butler starting at 1B

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:16:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler will start at first base against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, July 24, and is batting fourth in the lineup. 1B Ike Davis is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting only .193 this month but does have three home runs and nine RBI in that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Butler in their lineups but may also be able to find better options.

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 15:09:13 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will receive an off day Tuesday, July 21, against the Toronto Blue Jays. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base, while C Josh Phegley comes in to start behind the plate and bat seventh in the order against LHP Mark Buehrle.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .317 off lefties this season, with six doubles, one triple and two home runs. FantasyScore owners can fit Phegley into their lineups relatively easily and safely.

Athletics | Jake Smolinski playing left field

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:35:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jake Smolinski will start in left field and bat fifth against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 19. OF/1B Mark Canha, who started in left field Saturday, July 18, will bat second and play first base Sunday. 1B Ike Davis is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 2-for-5 since joining the A's but is only batting .156 in 64 at-bats in the majors this season. Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is batting .310 with seven RBIs in July but hasn't homered in over a month. Neither player should be considered for FantasyScore lineups.

Athletics | Ike Davis resting vs. lefty

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 11:17:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not in the lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Wednesday, July 8. C Stephen Vogt is at first base with C Josh Phegley starting behind the plate and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been effective against lefties (.310/.365/.534 with three of his five home runs) this year, making him an acceptable value pick on FantasyScore tonight. Vogt ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has just one of his 13 home runs against lefties, but he's also not a terrible option against Sabathia.

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 | 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 takes a seat

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:17:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, in favor of 1B Ike Davis.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against Colby Lewis, but he's hitting just .214 with two RBI this month. He's a lackluster option on FantasyScore.

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.

Athletics | Ike Davis back in the lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:35:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will be the starting first baseman against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has not played since the middle of May, so it could take him a few games to return to normal. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options at this point.
