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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is 5-for-5 with two home runs and seven RBIs in his first two spring training games.
Fantasy Tip: Semien has stated his claim to the shortstop battle with two strong showings thus far. He hit .267-15-52 in 300 at-bats at Triple-A last season. So there is potential, but there is room to grow. Semien is a sleeper you take late in the draft for your MI spot.

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien will be receiving "every chance" to be the team's starting shortstop this year, according to manager Bob Melvin.
Fantasy Tip: Semien won't be a consideration in standard mixed leagues this year, but he's worth taking a chance on in AL-only universes if he wins the job at the 6 in Oakland.
