Athletics | Ben Zobrist remains out

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:06:24 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is out of the starting lineup again Thursday, April 23. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has started the last three games with Zobrist banged up, and he's gone 3-for-13 (.231) with a double and stolen base. He's a low-price flyer option for those feeling bold against Tropeano in a spot start.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist out again

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 16:17:42 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday, April 21. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a scrappy left-handed hitter for the A's, but he should be avoided at FantasyScore while hitting at the bottom of Oakland's lineup. Also, Santiago has been tough on left-handers, and he's dominated the A's in recent years.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist out Monday

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:33:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have much power to speak of and is more of a scrappy hitter. He hit just .228 (57-for-250) with one home run against righties in 2014. Sogard is a weak play for those playing FantasyScore this evening.

Athletics | Ben Zobrist sitting vs. Astros

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:45:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is not in the starting lineup against the Houston Astros Wednesday, April 15. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at second base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Astros SP Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) won't give you much offensive firepower at FantasyScore, especially hitting low in the lineup. He also only hit .228 with one home run in 250 at-bats against right-handers in 2014. Look elsewhere Wednesday night.

Athletics | Eric Sogard could begin season in minors

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 12:33:10 -0800

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard could begin the 2015 season at Triple-A Nashville in order to receive regular playing time. He finished last year as the team's primary second baseman but could find himself on the bench as a reserve infielder or in the minors due to the acquisitions of 2B Ben Zobrist and SS Yunel Escobar.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie expects to go on DL

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:10:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (finger) said he expects to be placed on the 15-day disabled list, because he is not helping the team. Lowrie said he has tried to take part in baseball activities, but the finger is affecting his play.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto Callaspo and Eric Sogard could see time at shortstop if Lowrie is placed on the disabled list. Neither player has much value outside of AL-only leagues.
