From -- thru  --


Athletics | Josh Phegley activated from DL

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:41:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) was activated from the disabled list Friday, May 27. In a corresponding move, C Matt McBride was optioned to Class AAA Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley doesn't receive enough at-bats to be anything more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only formats. Dating back to the beginning of last season, Phegley does own a respectable .250/.301/.431 slash line with nine home runs and 37 RBI through 282 plate appearances, though.

Athletics | Several OAK regulars back in lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:49:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns, 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B Chris Coghlan are back in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, May 21. In addition, C Matt McBride will bat eighth and start behind the plate, while INF Maxwell Muncy bats ninth and plays the hot corner. C/1B Stephen Vogt is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start this season, Alonso is batting .296 over the past four weeks, although he has just one home run and eight RBI over 71 at-bats. At the other end of the spectrum, Coghlan is hitting just .152 over that same stretch and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. McBride and Muncy should be viewed as little more than sources of desperation cap relief.

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 | Stephen Vogt absent Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:26:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) is out of the starting lineup once again Tuesday, May 17. C Matt McBride is behind the plate again and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt's thumb injury isn't believed to be serious, so the A's are probably playing it cautious and electing to sit him against two left-handed pitchers the last two games. Keep tabs on his status and return him to lineups everywhere once he returns. McBride doesn't deserve attention in any fantasy format.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt remains out

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:44:14 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (thumb) remains out of the starting lineup Monday, May 16. C Matt McBride is doing the catching and is hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland.

Fantasy Tip: X-rays on Vogt's thumb were negative, so he could return to the lineup any day now. McBride will start with Josh Phegley also dinged up. McBride has only three at-bats on the year and just 161 plate appearances in the majors in four years. Avoid him everywhere.

Athletics | Coco Crisp out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 14 May 2016 12:03:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Andriese Saturday, May 14. OF Billy Burns will lead off and play center field, while C Matt McBride will bat ninth and start behind the plate. C Stephen Vogt will bat fifth and serve as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Burns is batting .316 (6-for-19) over the past week and is worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups. McBride is making his A's debut after spending parts of the previous three seasons with the Colorado Rockies and he should be viewed as nothing more than a source of desperation cap relief.

Athletics | Josh Phegley receives injection

Fri, 13 May 2016 13:44:04 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) received a cortisone shot Thursday, May 12, for right knee inflammation. C Matt McBride was called up from the minors for depth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley is the primary backup to Stephen Vogt at catcher, and Phegley is hitting .270 with no home runs and three RBI. His fantasy value lies mainly in daily formats when he spells Vogt behind the plate in worthwhile matchups.

Rockies | Ben Paulsen not in the lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:58:59 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray Monday, Aug. 31. 1B Matt McBride will start at first base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is out of the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .176 this season and should not be a fantasy option.

Rockies | Matt McBride starting vs. Pirates

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:59:02 -0700

Colorado Rockies 1B Matt McBride is starting at first base and batting sixth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Ben Paulsen is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Paulsen ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) rarely plays against lefties, so McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) draws in to face the potentially daunting Liriano ($7,500, 15.0% of cap). FantasyScore players will be able to stack their lineups around McBride, but he is nothing more than a dice roll. After all, he doesn't have an extra base hit or RBI yet this season.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:46:11 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (knee) is out of the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, due to a sore right knee. OF Matt McBride is batting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) just hurt the knee the day before, so the Rockies aren't taking any chances and are keeping him out. He should be stashed away on your bench in regular leagues as well. McBride ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth a low-cost flier. He has a .208 mark in August but his bat has warmed up in the past week (.357).
