Athletics | Josh Phegley catching Saturday

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:55:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley will bat sixth against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Saturday, July 25. C/1B Stephen Vogt is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is batting .250 with one home run and seven RBIs this month and is hitting .319 versus southpaws this year. However, a game versus one of baseball's most dominant pitchers makes this a less-than-desirable matchup for Phegley, so he should be avoided in FantasyScore today.

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 11:29:35 -0700

Athletics | Stephen Vogt sitting vs. Tribe

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 12:34:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 10. C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Vogt in all formats Friday. He is having a monster season but is beginning to show signs of slowing down, as his .236/.319/.333 slash line since Monday, June 1 suggests. While Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has struggled to reach base against righties (.218 batting average and .267 on-base percentage), he does boast ample power (.236 ISO and .455 slugging percentage). FantasyScore players should view Phegley as a high-risk, high-reward option Friday.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .273 overall but is hitting .321 versus lefties this season, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups this afternoon.

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 | Josh Phegley hitting fifth

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:29:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and hit fifth in the order Thursday, July 2, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Roenis Elias. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is crushing left-handed pitching to the tune of a .340 batting average this season. Phegley is worth a start any time he's facing a southpaw, and he offers a measure of cap relief to FantasyScore owners.
