The latest Seth Smith MLB and fantasy baseball news

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.

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick (wrist) is likely to wait another week before picking up a bat. If he can't swing soon, he might decide to undergo surgery.
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 Seth Smith (tonsillitis) is in a 3-for-18 slump and has been battling tonsillitis recently.
Fri, 03 May 2013 12:19:02 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) is not expected to play Friday, May 3. SS Adam Rosales is receiving his first career appearance in the leadoff spot.
Fantasy Tip: Coco Crisp (hamstring) is on the disabled list, opening up the leadoff spot for a few weeks. The injuries to Crisp and Young will make Seth Smith's playing time a little more secure.
Wed, 01 May 2013 10:17:22 -0700
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.

Oakland Athletics OF Casper Wells could split time in the outfield with OF Seth Smith, with Wells seeing starts against left-handed pitchers. Wells could make the start Wednesday, April 24.
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.
Mon, 22 Apr 2013 13:38:03 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes (hand) will take swings in batting practice Monday, April 22.
Fantasy Tip: There is still no timetable for when Cespedes will return from his DL stint, so remain patient. In the meantime, Seth Smith and Chris B. Young have seen more PT in the absence of Cespedes, and newcomer Casper Wells may be in line for some at-bats with Cespedes on the DL, too.
Fri, 19 Apr 2013 14:21:18 -0700
Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes (hand) is unable to swing a bat, and it's unknown if he'll be back when eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Just based on the fact that Cespedes hasn't started swinging yet would indicated that he likely won't be back when eligible, but it may not be far off after that. Seth Smith is swinging a hot stick and should be owned in most leagues while he's hot and getting conasistent playing time. Michael Taylor is also worth a look in AL-only leagues while Cespedes is shelved.
