Athletics | Marcus Semien resting vs. Seattle

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:01:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the 6 and is hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has very little power and is batting .244 (78-for-320) with no home runs and 26 RBI this year and he's facing a pitcher coming off a no-hit performance last week. Avoid Sogard on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Marcus Semien held out of lineup

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 20:12:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien was held out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Toronto Blue Jays to get a break from the turf and keep him from facing the knuckleball of SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is on a seven-game hitting streak, going 10-for-23 (.435) with a home run, four runs scored and five RBIs. He is a must-start in FantasyScore until he cools off.

Athletics | Marcus Semien taking day off

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:19:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is a light-hitting second baseman that doesn't deserve your attention on FantasyScore against Dickey, who is in the midst of a fine stretch on the mound.

Athletics | Marcus Semien leading off

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:43:49 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien will lead off against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Saturday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is hitting just .220 this month with two homers and four RBIs, although he is batting .295 against lefties. However, a matchup against one of the top left-handed starters in baseball makes him a risky FantasyScore play this afternoon.

Athletics | Marcus Simien sitting out

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:39:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, July 24. 2B Eric Sogard will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has only four hits in his last seven games and is not a strong option for owners on FantasyScore.

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.

Athletics | Marcus Semien resting

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 09:43:38 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't worth the start on FantasyScore.

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.
