Oakland Athletics C Bruce Maxwell will bat ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell Sunday, July 24. C Matt McBride is receiving the day off.
Fantasy Tip: With Stephen Vogt on the family emergency medical leave list, Maxwell is serving as the backup to McBride. He hit .321 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI in 60 games for Class AAA Nashville this season and has just one prior MLB at-bat entering play Sunday. He is not a recommended fantasy option Sunday due to his lack of a track record at the big-league level.

Oakland Athletics C/1B Stephen Vogt (personal) was placed on the family emergency medical leave list on Saturday, July 23. Oakland also transferred RP Fernando Rodriguez (lat) to the 60-day disabled list to clear room on the 40-man roster for C Bruce Maxwell, who was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Vogt will have to miss at least three days and no more than seven, meaning Maxwell and Matt McBride will likely share catching duties in the interim. Maxwell's stay figures to be brief since he has a left-handed bat just like Vogt, although the up-and-coming 25-year-old is slashing .321/.393/.539 with 10 homers with 41 RBI in 60 games with the Sounds.
