From -- thru  --


Athletics | Khris Davis back in the lineup

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:56:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis (forearm) will serve as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Monday, May 23. 1B Max Muncy is not in the starting lineup, while OF Jake Smolinski will start at right field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is hitting .300 with four home runs and eight RBI over the last seven days but is a risky option because of the injury. Smolinski is hitting only .111 since joining Oakland and should be avoided in all leagues.

Athletics | Mark Canha sitting out

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:43:13 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Mark Canha is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. 1B Max Muncy is starting at first base and is batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should be an afterthought for FantasyScore users tonight, especially while hitting at the bottom of the order. He has an average of .206 (20-for-97) with only two home runs and eight RBI against righties this year.

Athletics | Danny Valencia not in lineup

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 13:52:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. 1B Max Muncy is starting at the hot corner and is hitting sixth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie Muncy ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a desperation source of salary cap relief tonight, even against the struggling Samardzija. Muncy is batting .216 (19-for-88) with two home runs against right-handers this year.

Athletics | Jake Smolinski playing left field

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 11:10:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jake Smolinski will bat seventh and start in left field against Texas Rangers SP Chi Chi Gonzalez Sunday, Sept. 13. OF/1B Mark Canha, who started in left field Saturday, Sept. 12, will bat second and play first base Sunday, with 1B Max Muncy getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is only 2-for-21 at the plate this month and using him in FantasyScore would not be advised this afternoon. On the other hand, Canha ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is batting .320 with three home runs and eight RBIs over the past week and merits consideration as a value play.

Oakland Athletics 1B Max Muncy is starting at third base and hitting seventh in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Cleveland Indians and RHP Cody Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy isn't worth FantasyScore consideration, as he's hitting just .205 against righties this season.

Athletics | Max Muncy playing third base

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:38:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Max Muncy is starting at third base against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Sunday, June 28, batting eighth. 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting just .160 this month and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. Remove Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) from all fantasy lineups.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie sitting out

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 09:45:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of 3B Max Muncy.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) hasn't done much with his .211-2-6 line to give reason to use him on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Butler sitting vs. Friars

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:52:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 15. 1B Max Muncy is batting seventh and playing first base against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is mired in a 9-for-59 skid with a .153/.224/.203 slash line. However, looking forward, there is room for correction, as he sports an unsustainably low .184 BABIP. Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:31:35 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is back in the lineup with the team facing a right-handed starter for the first time since Thursday, June 11. Of Muncy's 70 plate appearances this year, 69 have come against righties; he walked in his only appearance to date against a lefty.

Athletics | Mark Canha starting at first

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 17:17:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Mark Canha will start at first base and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 9, against the Texas Rangers. 1B Max Muncy comes out of the lineup against RHP Nick Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is riding a four-game hit streak, which includes a 3-for-4 performance with two doubles, Sunday, June 7. Canha can offer some cap relief in an excellent matchup for the A's.
