Athletics | Several OAK regulars back in lineup

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:49:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns, 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B Chris Coghlan are back in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Saturday, May 21. In addition, C Matt McBride will bat eighth and start behind the plate, while INF Maxwell Muncy bats ninth and plays the hot corner. C/1B Stephen Vogt is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: After a slow start this season, Alonso is batting .296 over the past four weeks, although he has just one home run and eight RBI over 71 at-bats. At the other end of the spectrum, Coghlan is hitting just .152 over that same stretch and should be avoided in all fantasy formats. McBride and Muncy should be viewed as little more than sources of desperation cap relief.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso, Chris Coghlan out

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:16:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B/OF Chris Coghlan are out of the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Wednesday, May 18. 1B Billy Butler is starting at first base and is hitting sixth, while INF Tyler Ladendorf is starting at the keystone and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: It's the fourth straight lefty the A's are facing, and it's clear that Oakland would rather sit Alonso and Coghlan against southpaws. Butler has very minimal upside without a lot of extra-base prowess these days. Ladendorf doesn't move the fantasy needle at all.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso out again

Tue, 17 May 2016 14:22:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup again against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Tuesday, May 17. 1B Billy Butler draws the start at first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso is out for the second straight day since the team is facing another southpaw. Expect this to be the norm moving forward. Butler had a hit and and RBI last night but is hitting just .224 and has virtually no fantasy upside left. He's a low-end daily option against Hamels.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso, Chris Coghlan sitting

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:42:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso and 2B Chris Coghlan are not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Derek Holland Monday, May 16. 1B Billy Butler is starting at first base and hitting sixth, while 2B Tyler Ladendorf is at the keystone and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Only consider Butler or Ladendorf for your daily lineups if you're desperate for salary cap relief. Butler is hitting .218 (12-for-55) with no home runs on the year and Ladendorf is extremely limited offensively, especially hitting at the bottom of the order.

Athletics | Danny Valencia still out Wednesday

Wed, 11 May 2016 12:40:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 11. 1B Yonder Alonso is starting at third base again and is hitting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello. 1B Billy Butler sees another start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia had just returned from a DL stint for the same hamstring late last week, so be prepared for another trip to the disabled list. Stay tuned for updates on his status. Alonso is barely hitting over .200 and doesn't have much pop to speak of, making him a low-end corner infielder to use in daily games. The veteran Butler has a similar profile.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Jed Lowrie out injured

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:24:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) and 2B Jed Lowrie (foot) are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 10. 1B Yonder Alonso moves to third base and is hitting seventh, while 2B Chris Coghlan is starting at second base and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan. 1B Billy Butler is playing first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia just came off the DL for a hammy pull late last week, so this is concerning. Prepare for the worst -- another trip to the DL. Lowrie's X-rays came back negative and he's day-to-day. Act accordingly. Against O'Sullivan, Coghlan, Alonso and Butler could be worth selections as deep sleepers in daily games, but they're long shots to put up big numbers.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso drives in three

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 05:17:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso went 2-for-4 with one home run and three RBI against the Houston Astros Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Alonso doubled his RBI total Friday with his three RBI and has recorded at least one hit in five of his last seven games. He is hitting only .174 this season and probably can be avoided in most mixed leagues.

Athletics | Yonder Alonso will not play

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 08:30:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Yonder Alonso is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Saturday, April 23. 1B Billy Butler will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Butler has struggled recently with only one hit in his last five games. Owners probably will be able to find better options to use in their starting lineups.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Yonder Alonso out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:17:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia (hamstring) and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Chris Coghlan is at third base and hitting sixth, while OF Mark Canha is at first base and batting second against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino. Also, 2B Jed Lowrie moves to the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia could miss a few more game, so make sure you have a suitable replacement in place. Canha has a nice lineup position and actually hits better against righties than lefties, so he's worth a cheap flyer in DFS as a deep sleeper. Coghlan is hitting .184 but has a three-game hitting streak. He's a low-end outfield option today.

Athletics | Three A's regulars sitting

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:19:33 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp, C Stephen Vogt and 1B Yonder Alonso are all out of the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Hector Santiago Tuesday, April 12. OF Billy Burns returns to center and is leading off, C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting second and OF Mark Canha is at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Burns' value has taken a slight hit with Crisp healthy and playing often, but he remains relevant in all leagues for his speed. Get him back into your lineups. Phegley and Canha excel against lefties and are worth value plays in daily contests, with Phegley much more attractive.
