Athletics | Brett Lawrie doing his part

Thu, 21 May 2015 05:19:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is batting .333 (29-for-87) over his last 23 games dating back to Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Lawrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has just seven runs and 12 RBI, and seasonal owners have to be somewhat disappointed his solid work at the dish isn't being rewarded with more counting stats. At Lawrie's cap hit, FantasyScore players have a potential bargain on their hands, and the counting stats should begin to follow.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie in at second

Thu, 07 May 2015 08:22:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is in the lineup at second base Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: It's Lawrie's second game at the position, and a few more could open 2B eligibility in some traditional leagues. His fantasy value would increase a good amount if he gains 2B eligibility in your league.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 12:40:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (knee) is getting the day off against the Houston Astros Saturday, April 25. Manager Bob Melvin said he was "banged up" after jamming his knee into the team's bullpen mound while making a catch in foul territory Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: INF Max Muncy will make his major league debut at third base Saturday, batting seventh. He was promoted when the A's placed 2B Ben Zobrist (knee) on the 15-day disabled list. It is unknown when Lawrie will be able to return to the starting lineup.

Royals | Yordano Ventura tossed

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 18:18:25 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura was ejected after hitting Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie Saturday, April 18. He had allowed five earned runs in 3 1/3 innings before being tossed.

Fantasy Tip: Ventura ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) was likely retaliating for a hard slide by Lawrie the previous night. It remains to be seen if he will face any further discipline from the league, but keep an eye on the situation in case he is forced to miss a start.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie rounding into form

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 18:17:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie hit a pair of doubles against the San Diego Padres Tuesday, March 17, and he hit a three-run home run against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie entered the majors with plenty of hype, but a series of injuries has stunted his growth. He will begin a fresh start with Oakland this year, but leaving Toronto means leaving behind a hitter-friendly home park. He is worth a flier in the later rounds, but don't count Lawrie being a regular starter for your fantasy team.

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie said the artificial turf in Toronto was the reason why he missed so many games while playing for the Toronto Blue Jays. Lawrie missed 184 games since the start of the 2012 season. "It treats my body kind of silly and throws it off," Lawrie said of the artificial turf. "I just want to go out and be healthy, and I feel like this getting off the turf is a big step forward for me."
