Athletics | Eric Sogard playing second base

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:45:54 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard will bat seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Sunday, July 26. INF/OF Ben Zobrist, who started at second base Saturday, July 25, will bat third and play left field Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is only batting .185 during the month of July and is not a great starting option at the keystone position in FantasyScore.

Athletics | Marcus Simien sitting out

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:39:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Friday, July 24. 2B Eric Sogard will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has only four hits in his last seven games and is not a strong option for owners on FantasyScore.

Athletics | No Billy Butler against Cleveland

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 07:10:42 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. 2B Ben Zobrist is batting third as the designated hitter, and 2B Eric Sogard is playing second base and batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: With Kluber on the hill, none of the Athletics are strong FantasyScore plays. Zobrist ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is entering the All-Star break hot, though, with 21 runs, three home runs, 19 RBI and a .322/.417/.544 slash line over his past 26 games. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a low-end option against favorable pitching matchups, so aim higher in daily contests Sunday.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie not starting Saturday

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 12:03:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Saturday, July 11. INF Eric Sogard will bat eighth and play the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Lawrie ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is just receiving a day off, so expect him to return to the lineup Sunday, July 12. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting .250 this month and is hitless in one career at-bat versus Carrasco. Better low-cost options are available in FantasyScore for a similar price.

Athletics | Eric Sogard in lineup Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:09:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard will bat eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, July 4. INF/OF Ben Zobrist, who played second base Friday, July 3, will start in left field Saturday and bat third.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting .308 over the past week and is 8-for-31 in his career against Hernandez. He is worth considering in FantasyScore if you need salary cap relief.

Athletics | Eric Sogard leading off

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:08:40 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is more intriguing at the top of the lineup, but he doesn't have much offensive upside and hasn't homered in 221 at-bats this season. He's strictly a low-end FantasyScore sleeper play if you're feeling lucky.

Athletics | Marcus Semien hitting ninth

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:54:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is being dropped to ninth in the order against Texas Rangers SP Chi Chi Gonzalez Tuesday, June 23. 2B Eric Sogard is in the two-hole Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Semien ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has tailed off with the lumber and is 12-for-61 (.197) with no home runs and only one RBI in the month of June. He's an unattractive FantasyScore option for the time being, especially when hitting ninth. Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is purely a sleeper play as a source of cap relief.

Athletics | Eric Sogard not in the lineup

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 11:01:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Sunday, June 21. 2B Ben Zobrist will start at second base and is batting fourth, while OF Sam Fuld will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Zobrist ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games with eight RBI during that span and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting .209 so far this season and is not a great option.

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 09:25:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup Thursday, June 18, in favor of 2B Eric Sogard.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't enough of an offensive player to use on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Marcus Semien resting

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 09:43:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of SS Eric Sogard.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) faces off against Andrew Cashner and doesn't have much luster on FantasyScore.
