Athletics | Ben Zobrist continues rehab

Wed, 20 May 2015 09:46:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) will play seven innings in the outfield with Class A Stockton (Calif.) Wednesday, May 20, and then he'll move his rehab to Class AAA Fresno (Calif.) to play Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is nearing a return and should return to starting second base duties when he's ready. That'll push Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) back to a bench role. Sogard is a low-end keystone play at FantasyScore in the meantime.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist to play some 2B

Mon, 18 May 2015 15:18:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is expected to play five innings at second base with Class A Stockton (Calif.) Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is slowly working his way back from a knee ailment and probably won't rejoin Oakland's lineup until early next month. In the meantime, Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) remains the fill-in starter at the keystone, and he's a low-end second base option at FantasyScore.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist starting rehab Monday?

Wed, 13 May 2015 11:16:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is expected to make multiple minor league stops during a rehab assignment, and his rehab could start Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist won't be back anytime soon, though, and Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has served as the primary fill-in second baseman. Sogard is merely a low-end matchup play at the keystone for FantasyScore users.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist to take BP

Mon, 11 May 2015 16:47:13 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) will take batting practice Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) doesn't have a timetable for his return, and it won't be until sometime in June before he's ready to return to the lineup. Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should continue to see regular playing time at the keystone in the meantime. Consider Sogard a weak second base play at FantasyScore while hitting at the bottom of the Oakland lineup.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist takes swings

Thu, 07 May 2015 14:33:18 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) took some swings off a tee Thursday, May 7, as he rehabs from left knee surgery. There is no timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist won't be back for at least another month. Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to man the keystone on a daily basis with Zobrist out, but he's nothing more than a low-end FantasyScore second base option.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist's rehab going well

Wed, 06 May 2015 15:33:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist's (knee) rehab is going very well, and he's completely pain-free. However, he has yet to resume hitting, but the team is hoping he can return quickly.

Fantasy Tip: Zobrist still faces a long recovery from knee surgery, and he won't be an option at FantasyScore for some time. In the meantime, it looks like Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will continue to serve as the starter at second base, but he's a low-end keystone option in daily games.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist injury update

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:37:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) underwent a knee scope Tuesday, April 28. He said he felt "good" after a 20-minute session on the exercise bike, and that his return will depend on how his knee responds to increased activity. Zobrist is hoping to return closer to the four weeks benchmark of his timeline than the six weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to avoid Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in FantasyScore contests and stashing him in seasonal leagues. Eric Sogard's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) playing time will increase with Zobrist out, but Sogard hardly tips the fantasy scale. Consider Sogard a desperation flier in FantasyScore contests until he proves otherwise.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist to undergo surgery

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 11:17:59 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is expected to undergo surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, although no date has been set for the procedure. He is expected to need four to six weeks of recovery time.

Fantasy Tip: Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will probably get the bulk of the playing time at second base in Zobrist's absence but he won't be able to duplicate his power or run-producing numbers. C Stephen Vogt ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is expected to be the regular No. 3 hitter in the lineup while Zobrist is out.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist placed on DL

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 09:51:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Ben Zobrist (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 25. INF Max Muncy was also recalled from Triple-A Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should receive most of the starts at second base while Zobrist is out of the lineup. Sogard could be an option for owners on FantasyScore, but he will not give owners much in terms of power or RBI.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist back in the lineup

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:00:42 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is batting third as the designated hitter against the Houston Astros Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Since Zobrist ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has missed the past four games, he is likely best avoided in FantasyScore contests Friday. Opposing lefty Dallas Keuchel has been fantastic, too. Let Zobrist prove his health before utilizing him in daily contests.
