Athletics | Marcus Semien hitting ninth

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:54:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is being dropped to ninth in the order against Texas Rangers SP Chi Chi Gonzalez Tuesday, June 23. 2B Eric Sogard is in the two-hole Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has tailed off with the lumber and is 12-for-61 (.197) with no home runs and only one RBI in the month of June. He's an unattractive FantasyScore option for the time being, especially when hitting ninth. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is purely a sleeper play as a source of cap relief.

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of SS Eric Sogard.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) faces off against Andrew Cashner and doesn't have much luster on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Marcus Semien back in two-hole

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 14:07:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is hitting second in the batting order against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is much more valuable to FantasyScore users hitting atop the lineup. Although he has no home runs against southpaws this year, he is hitting .291 (16-for-55) against them. Semien is worth considering as your daily shortstop now that he's back in the two-hole.

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:52:07 -0700

Athletics | Marcus Semien resting Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:39:39 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 27. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the 6 and hitting ninth in the batting order against Detroit Tigers RP Alex Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Even in a game started by a relief pitcher, Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) makes for a low-end keystone option at FantasyScore tonight. Hitting at the bottom of a weak lineup doesn't help matters at all.

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:34:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 22. 2B Andy Parrino is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Parrino will be as cheap as they come at FantasyScore after just being recalled from the minors. Avoid him everywhere in daily contests.

Athletics | Marcus Semien pulls off rare feat

Sun, 10 May 2015 18:18:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 4-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners Sunday, May 10, and he became the first player since 2012 to hit two home runs off SP Felix Hernandez in the same game.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been enjoying a solid all-around season, and he is now batting .307 with five home runs, 14 RBIs and six stolen bases. He deserves regular consideration as a shortstop option at FantasyScore, especially against lefties.

Athletics | Marcus Semien sitting Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 08:26:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien out of the lineup Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Max Muncy ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in the open spot in the infield, but he has no FantasyScore value at this time.

Athletics | Marcus Semien dropped in order

Wed, 06 May 2015 14:23:55 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is batting eighth against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been up and down the lineup all season, but with Coco Crisp back, Semien may see more time at the bottom of the order going forward. Semien has emerged as an excellent middle infielder this season and sports nice cross-category production: 15 runs, three home runs, 12 RBI, 4 stolen bases and a .273/.322/.437 slash line. His early-season success is reflected in his FantasyScore salary, though, so it may be best to start him primarily in plus-matchups.

Athletics | Marcus Semien on hot streak

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 12:34:51 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is 12-for-29 (.414) with five multi-hit games in his last seven contests.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has really benefitted from everyday playing time and a move to the two-hole recently. Batting second this year, he's hitting .375 (6-for-16). He's not a great FantasyScore play today against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starter Garrett Richards, but it's hard to call him a must-avoid guy while he's hitting well.
