Athletics | Jake Smolinski back to the bench

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 10:20:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jake Smolinski, despite going 8-for-16 with two home runs during a six-game hitting streak, will move back to the bench with the team back to facing right-handed pitchers. 1B Max Muncy started Thursday, June 16. Head coach Bob Melvin thinks Smolinski has a chance to be an everyday player in the big leagues, but that time isn't now, especially with OF Josh Reddick (thumb) coming back soon.

Fantasy Tip: Well there you go. Make sure you don't invest too much in either Smolinski or Muncy in AL-only leagues, since they're both short-term outfield filler until Reddick returns.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (thumb) took 25 swings off a tee Monday, June 13, and the next step in his rehab is to take batting practice.
