Athletics | Billy Butler back in lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:23:11 -0700

Oakland Athletics DH Billy Butler is back in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Sunday, June 28, batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitless in his last 10 at-bats and is only hitting .197 this month, so FantasyScore owners should avoid using him.

Athletics | Billy Butler takes a seat

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:17:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, in favor of 1B Ike Davis.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against Colby Lewis, but he's hitting just .214 with two RBI this month. He's a lackluster option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is hitting .324 with two home runs and six RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Butler not playing Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 09:29:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Saturday, June 20. C Stephen Vogt will serve as the designated hitter and is batting third, while C Josh Phegley will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Vogt ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has struggled at times this month and has a .179 batting average in June. Owners may want to look for other options at the positon. Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has posted a solid batting average in his limited playing time this season and has five RBI in June. Owners may consider Phegley as a starting option if they are looking to save some money.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) doesn't play the field very often and is having a .247-4-29 season. He's an option that doesn't give a lot of excitement on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Butler sitting vs. Friars

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:52:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 15. 1B Max Muncy is batting seventh and playing first base against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is mired in a 9-for-59 skid with a .153/.224/.203 slash line. However, looking forward, there is room for correction, as he sports an unsustainably low .184 BABIP. Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Athletics | Billy Butler batting cleanup

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:40:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler will bat cleanup Tuesday, May 26, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is 6-for-19 in his last four games, and he's hitting .303 against lefties on the season. David Price will pose a difficult test, but Butler is an intriguing GPP option while he's hot.

Athletics | Billy Butler struggles against Masterson

Tue, 12 May 2015 10:04:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is just 9-for-43 with 13 strikeouts in his career against Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson. Masterson faces the A's Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has cooled off a bit after a hot April (.287-3-12). It makes sense to avoid him at FantasyScore this evening against a pitcher that he's struggled with in his career.

Athletics | Billy Butler back after rest

Mon, 04 May 2015 19:45:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler entered the game Monday, May 4, against the Minnesota Twins with no hits over his 20 at-bats, and just one knock in the past 31 at-bats. He had a day off Sunday, May 3, and he worked on his hitting in the cage.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid Butler ($3,700; 7.4% of cap) until he is able to get untracked and piece together a few decent games in a row.
