Athletics | No Danny Valencia Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 15:05:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 1. 3B Brett Lawrie is starting at third base and hitting second against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker. 2B Eric Sogard draws the start at the keystone and is batting leadoff, while 1B Mark Canha moves into the cleanup spot.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard's ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) daily value is at its highest hitting leadoff, but his light-hitting ways still make him a weaker second base pick on FantasyScore. Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and Canha ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) are much more attractive as value picks against a pitcher that has allowed 1.5 home runs per nine innings this year.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie batting third

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:32:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (back) is batting third against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Monday, Aug. 31. OF Josh Reddick is batting eighth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) missed the game Sunday, Aug. 30, because of a back injury. However, it shouldn't be viewed as a significant hindrance to his fantasy stock with him right back in the lineup. FantasyScore players should view Lawrie as a potential value play Monday. He owns a .298/.343/.500 slash line against southpaws this season. Reddick ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) carries significant risk Monday. He is pricey and owns an uninspiring .639 OPS against lefties.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:55:32 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster Sunday, Aug. 30. INF Eric Sogard will bat eighth and play second base.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is only batting .235 with three RBIs this month and isn't a great FantasyScore option.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie heating up again

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:45:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Oakland's 6-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has piled on a few nice stretches this season, and he appears to be in the heart of another. Over his past 11 games, Lawrie has eight runs, three doubles, three home runs, seven RBI and a 1.061 OPS. He is a nice value play at FantasyScore contests and worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie extends hit streak

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:50:51 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Seattle Mariners to push his hitting streak to seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 13-for-27 (.481) during his impressive hitting streak, posting a pair of homers with five RBIs and six runs scored. At this price level he is a must-start in FantasyScore until he cools off significantly.

Athletics | Danny Valencia resting Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:11:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 3B Brett Lawrie is starting at third, while 2B Eric Sogard receives the start at second base and is hitting ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: King Felix hasn't been his typical dominant self of late, but that doesn't change the fact that Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) shouldn't intrigue you much at all at FantasyScore. He's hitting .243 (79-for-325) and has no home runs on the season.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie returns to the lineup

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:25:39 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (back) is starting at second base and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) missed three games with the injury, so there is a slight risk in starting him at FantasyScore Friday. Still, he owns a sneaky-good .287/.331/.496 slash line against lefties this season and six of his 11 home runs have come against southpaws in just 125 plate appearances. Lawrie is worth a look in daily contests.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie has bad back

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 11:21:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (back) is dealing with back soreness, and the team is hoping he can return to the lineup Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: That explains why Lawrie hasn't played since Sunday. Make sure he's back in there Friday before using him in daily lineups. Eric Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) continues to start at second base in the meantime. He's a low-end second base option with no home runs on the season.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie sitting again

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:53:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is out for the third straight game Wednesday, Aug. 19. 2B Eric Sogard is starting at second base again and hitting ninth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has very limited offensive upside as evidenced by his zero home runs and 24 RBI this season. You can surely do better for your second base pick than him.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie sitting against Baltimore

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:38:48 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. OF Danny Valencia is starting at third base and batting fourth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is hitting just .185 in August, and he isn't a must-own bat in the majority of seasonal leagues. It also looks like he'll never live up to the promise he flashed early in his career. Lawrie has been seeing a lot of time at second base since Oakland added Valencia ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), which has pushed Eric Sogard ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) to a bench role. Valencia has a .947 OPS over nine games since joining the Athletics, and he has become a mainstay in the heart of their order. Don't overvalue him, though, as historically, he has been a platoon bat who does his best work against southpaws.
