Oakland Athletics C/1B Stephen Vogt (personal) was placed on the family emergency medical leave list on Saturday, July 23. Oakland also transferred RP Fernando Rodriguez (lat) to the 60-day disabled list to clear room on the 40-man roster for C Bruce Maxwell, who was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Vogt will have to miss at least three days and no more than seven, meaning Maxwell and Matt McBride will likely share catching duties in the interim. Maxwell's stay figures to be brief since he has a left-handed bat just like Vogt, although the up-and-coming 25-year-old is slashing .321/.393/.539 with 10 homers with 41 RBI in 60 games with the Sounds.

Oakland Athletics RP Fernando Rodriguez (lat), who was recently placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a lat tear near his rotator cuff, is expected to be sidelined for four to six weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is 2-0 with a 4.20 ERA through 34 appearances this year, with 17 walks and 37 strikeouts through 40 2/3 innings. In a best-case scenario, the 32-year-old righty won't return to action until mid-August and he is not worth stashing in the majority of seasonal formats.

The Oakland Athletics have optioned SP Dan Straily to Class AAA Sacramento and placed RP Ryan Cook (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list. Oakland also called up RPs Fernando Rodriguez and Joe Savery.
Fantasy Tip: They'll have Straily work on a few things; he's worth holding in some deep games because of his talent, but he could be more hurtful dead weight in mixed leagues. Expect Drew Pomeranz to take over his spot in the rotation; he's a pickup everywhere outside of extremely shallow formats; he's shown signs of reviving his prospect hype and finally resides in an organization that'll help him succeed.
