Athletics | Billy Burns out of lineup

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:51:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Friday, May 20. OF Khris Davis moves to left field and is hitting cleanup, while C Matt McBride draws a start at designated hitter and is batting eighth. SS Marcus Semien moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Both Davis and Semien have big-time power at their positions, but they aren't doing you any favors in the average department. Semien's daily outlook perks up with the move to the two-hole, and both he and Davis are good picks in DFS tonight against Sabathia, who is making his first start since coming off the DL. McBride should be nothing more than a desperation flier.

Athletics | Marcus Semien drills seventh homer

Wed, 04 May 2016 17:05:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI Wednesday, May 4, against the Seattle Mariners. He clubbed his seventh homer of the season in the club's losing effort.

Fantasy Tip: The fourth-year shortstop flashed his unexpected power talents in 2015 when he finished with 15 home runs in his first season in Oakland. Only a month into the new campaign, he already has approximately half that total. While he's hitting just .209, Semien still has something to offer fantasy rosters in most formats.

Athletics | Marcus Semien launches fifth HR

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:43:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Tuesday, April 26, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Semien has five homers, but he is still hitting just .197. He is worth using as a middle infield option in AL-only leagues and as a salary saver in DFS.

Athletics | Marcus Semien homers again

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 17:25:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien hit his fourth home run of the season Wednesday, April 13, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He finished the day 1-for-2 with a run scored, an RBI and a walk.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good thing defense doesn't count for fantasy otherwise Semien would never even get on the radar. When it comes to his offense, the error-prone shortstop is actually quite underrated, as he delivered a career-high 15 home runs last season, and now he already has four long balls in just 29 at-bats. He's a suitable option at short for deep leagues.

Athletics | Marcus Semien receives praise

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 12:09:10 -0800

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien remains the team's starting shortstop despite a major league-high 35 errors in 2015. "He's in a good place, put it that way. Especially mentally," manager Bob Melvin said. "There are days he goes back there and Wash does drills and Wash raves about him like you would a quarterback at football practice when the ball never hits the ground."

Fantasy Tip: His defense aside, Semien has nice speed and showed power growth in 2015. He should be a good bet to repeat double-digit homers and steals, but he's still mainly attractive in AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Marcus Semien remains the SS

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 10:41:44 -0800

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien remains the team's starting shortstop, according to assistant general manager David Forst.

Fantasy Tip: Newly acquired Jed Lowrie may have to squeeze in at third. Semien had a decent year with a .257-15-45 line with 11 steals, and he'll be a MI consideration in mixed leagues.

Athletics | Marcus Semien reaches 15 home runs

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 06:30:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien went 2-for-6 and hit his 15th home run of the season during Oaklands' 7-5 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old shortstop had a solid season, and he bounced back strongly from a significant mid-season slump. Dating back to Saturday, Aug. 1, Semien ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) owns a .284/.354.483 slash line with 27 runs and 23 RBI through 51 games. He checks out as a low-end middle infield option for mixed leagues next season.

Athletics | Marcus Semien out Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 17:04:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Friday, Oct. 2. INF Eric Sogard will bat eighth and play shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Semien ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 4-for-13 with seven RBIs over the past seven days and is 5-for-17 versus Iwakuma in his career with a pair of doubles. FantasyScore owners looking for a productive source of cap relief should consider him tonight.

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:14:16 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is hitting .271 with two home runs and seven RBIs at the plate this month, including .385 over the past week, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie starting at second base

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:20:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie will bat seventh and play second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Saturday, Sept. 26. INF Eric Sogard, who played second base Friday, Sept. 25, will play shortstop Saturday, with SS Marcus Semien receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 against Hudson in his career, FantasyScore owners may want to think twice about using him. He is just 2-for-20 at the plate over the past seven days.
