The latest Seth Smith MLB and fantasy baseball news

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) is expected to start a rehab assignment with Double-A Stockton Monday, May 27, and with Triple-A Sacramento Tuesday, May 28, and he hopes to rejoin the team during their homestand next weekend.
Fantasy Tip: If Reddick gets through a short minor league rehab assignment without any setback, he should return to the starting outfield alignment in Oakland shortly after that. That'll mean even less frequent playing time for Seth Smith and Chris B. Young. Reddick's wrist troubles likely played a part in his slow start this year. If he's healthy, he could turn that around quickly. Consider picking him back up when he returns.

Fantasy Tip: This is very positive news for Reddick, who was considering the possibility that he might need to have surgery on his wrist. When he eventually returns, it'll mean even less playing time for Chris B. Young and Seth Smith.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) will play for Triple-A Sacramento Thursday, May 16, and is likely to come off the disabled list Friday, May 17. The team will decide to send C Luke Montz down or designate 1B Daric Barton for assignment to make room for Young on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor was sent down to the minors today, so Young figures to platoon in the outfield with Seth Smith, as he was doing before. Young has power, but he won't do you any favors in the batting average category. This makes him an asset in cavernous mixed formats with deep outfield setups.

Oakland Athletics OFs Coco Crisp (hamstring) and Chris B. Young (quadriceps) are close to a return, but Young felt something in his quadriceps during a rehab game Monday, May 13. Crisp had a great day of running, and he could return before Young Wednesday, May 15. Young will play in another game Tuesday, May 14, and he could be rested through the end of the week.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor's playing time will come to an end when Crisp and Young return. If Crisp is out there on your waiver wire, add him to your team now. Young figures to platoon in right field when he's back with Seth Smith. Both Young and Smith are worth roster spots in cavernous mixed formats.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick had similar surgery on his other wrist a few years ago and missed two months after that. He's remaining optimistic right now, but if he needs surgery, Chris B. Young and Seth Smith will benefit the most in his absence.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (hamstring) has started taking swings off a tee since he's feeling better, and he could start running soon. However, OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is expected to be ready to return before Crisp. Both players can come off the disabled list May 16.
Fantasy Tip: With Josh Reddick (wrist) also on the DL right now, the Athletics are testing their outfield depth. Once both Crisp and Young return, Michael Taylor will lose his value for those taking advantage of his playing time in deep mixed leagues. Seth Smith should re-enter into a platoon with Young when the time comes, too.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring. He left the club's Monday, April 29, contest in the 13th inning because of the injury and sat out on Tuesday, April 30, the date to which his DL stint is backdated. The A's have called up C Luke Montz from Triple-A Sacramento to take Crisp's place on the 25-man roster.
Fantasy Tip: This is par for the course for Crisp. The injury doesn't seem to be serious, but the Athletics have played shorthanded here and there for the past couple of weeks. Chris Young's and Seth Smith's PT become a little more secure in the short term, so each may carry value in deep mixed leagues. Crisp will hopefully not need much more than the minimum on the DL.
Tue, 23 Apr 2013 14:36:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This will be short-lived, however, with Yoenis Cespedes (hand) possibly returning from the DL as soon as this Sunday. Wells could be designated for assignment again at that point, and Smith will see his PT decline at that point, too.
