Athletics | Khris Davis to start in LF

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:14:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis will start in left field against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Monday, June 27, because the team does not have a designated hitter available. OF Max Muncy is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is hitting .269 with two home runs and five RBI over the last seven days and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Athletics | Coco Crisp belts grand slam

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 17:37:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp went 1-for-4 with a grand slam and a walk in a 7-6 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, June 26, and he has two home runs, seven RBI and seven runs scored over his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is hitting just .236 for the year and has minimal value in season-long leagues, but he could be worth a flier in DFS formats while he is swinging a hot bat.

Athletics | Marcus Semien moves up in lineup

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 11:12:42 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Semien is hitting .381 with one home run and six RBI over the last seven days. He has posted a .298 batting average against left-handed pitchers and should be a fine starting candidate in most daily fantasy leagues.

Athletics | Oakland resting four starters

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 11:00:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns, C Stephen Vogt, 2B Jed Lowrie and 3B Max Muncy are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Sunday, June 26. OF Coco Crisp will start in center field, while OF Khris Davis will start in left field. 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth. OF Jake Smolinski will start in right field and is batting sixth. C Josh Phegley will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while SS Arismendy Alcantara will start at second base and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler, Smolinski and Phegley has posted decent numbers in their limited playing time this season but are not strong options in most leagues. Alcantara has gone 1-for-4 since being recalled and should be avoided in all leagues at this point.

Athletics | Henderson Alvarez to rest for three weeks

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:33:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) received a platelet-rich injection in his right shoulder one week ago and will not be allowed to pick up a baseball for three more weeks. A recent MRI exam taken by Dr. James Andrews revealed there is no structural damage in his shoulder which would require additional surgery.

Fantasy Tip: In a best-case scenario, Alvarez won't resume throwing before mid-July and won't return to the majors before August. He should only continue to be stashed in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space.

Athletics | Danny Valencia plates three

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 06:51:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBI during the Athletics' 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia hasn't slowed down yet and sits with an incredible .333/.381/.552 slash line for the season. Next to his 35 runs, 11 home runs and 30 RBI it is quite a stat line and worth starting in all setups. Those looking to utilize Valencia in daily contests should note eight of his 11 long flies have come on the road.

Athletics | Sean Manaea makes rehab start

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:23:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea (forearm) made a rehab start with Class A Stockton on Friday, June 24. Manaea threw 69 pitches over 3 2/3 innings and gave up two earned runs and two hits.

Fantasy Tip: Things are looking good for Manaea's recovery, but as a previous tip suggested Manaea (2-4, 6.02 ERA) is best used in favorable matchups in DFS leagues.

Athletics | Danny Valencia homers in win

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:11:18 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia hit his 11th home run of the season Saturday, June 25, in a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia (.333-11-30) is having a renaissance season in Oakland and should be owned in all formats until his production drops off.

Athletics | Coco Crisp scores four times

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:07:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp stroked a two-run single and scored four runs Sunday, June 25, in a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is having one of his better seasons in recent memory, if you can call .221-6-26 a decent line. Still, Crisp does deliver occasional good production. With Oakland's outfield situation he may not see action every day, but Crisp has managed to play 61 games. Consider Crisp if you need a daily start and the matchups are favorable.

Athletics | Dillon Overton wins debut

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:03:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Dillon Overton was charged with three runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings Saturday, June 25, as the Athletics beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 7-3. It was Overton's major league debut and his first win.

Fantasy Tip: That's not a bad line for a rookie pitcher, but as always you want to see what a pitcher like this does in his second outing, his third outing, etc. If he can hang tough and keep getting better, then Overton may be worth a pickup off the waiver wire of most fantasy leagues or a DFS start. Until then, be cautious.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:53:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is in the lineup Saturday, June 25, hitting leadoff. DH Billy Butler is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is hitting just .183 this month, but he has upside in the leadoff spot against Jhoulys Chacin.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:40:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Madson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 24, to pick up his 14th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Madson has not received many save chances this month but has not allowed a run in his last four appearances. He should keep the starting job for the time being and should be a fine starting option in most leagues.

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 05:26:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has been a bit inconsistent at the plate over the last few games but does have two home runs and four RBI over the last two games. He should be a starting option for owners looking for power in their lineups.
