Athletics | Max Muncy playing third base

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:38:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Max Muncy is starting at third base against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Sunday, June 28, batting eighth. 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting just .160 this month and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. Remove Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) from all fantasy lineups.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie in two-hole

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 17:12:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is hitting second against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is excelling in June (.347-3-15) and has had a very solid season all around (.289-7-35). He gains more fantasy value hitting up near the top of the lineup, too. You could do much worse than Lawrie tonight as your FantasyScore second baseman.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie continues strong run

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:29:00 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie has a .324 batting average (56-for-173) over 46 games dating back to Saturday, May 2. During the run, he has 15 runs, five home runs, 22 RBI and two stolen bases.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has emerged as a consistent fantasy contributor, and he is worth considering for FantasyScore contests whenever Oakland draws a favorable pitching matchup.

Athletics | Brett Lawire back in the lineup

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 15:20:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (back) is batting seventh and playing third base against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) sat out Tuesday, June 16, with minor back stiffness, so his seasonal owners will be happy to see him back in the lineup. Since the calendar flipped to May, Lawrie is batting .307 with 12 runs, four home runs, 16 RBI, two stolen bases and a .784 OPS. He has been hot and cold through the stretch, but overall Lawrie is rounding out as a solid fantasy contributor. His FantasyScore salary is a solid representation of his value, so look to utilize him in plus-matchups only.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie sitting out

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 09:45:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of 3B Max Muncy.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) hasn't done much with his .211-2-6 line to give reason to use him on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Brett Lawire leaves the yard

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 06:25:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie hit his sixth home run of the season during his 2-for-4 showing in the Athletics' 5-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) appeared to be putting it all together through the end of May and early June, and then he took a 0-for-15 trip to funky town. At this stage, his inconsistency is maddening for seasonal owners, and he cannot be relied on by FantasyScore players. The upside is there, but the consistency is not.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 11:41:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Saturday, June 6. INF Max Muncy will start at the hot corner and bat seventh. Manager Bob Melvin said Lawrie is being given the day off to rest his back and added that his exclusion from the lineup has nothing to do with the incident Friday, June 5, where a fan sustained life-threatening injuries caused by a shard from Lawrie's broken bat.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs Friday, June 5, but will get a day of rest despite collecting multiple hits in five of his last six games. Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is only batting .176 over the last two weeks and .226 for the season, so avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie locked in at the dish

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 05:34:41 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie hit his fifth home run and scored two runs during Oakland's 4-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 14 games, Lawrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has seven runs, three home runs, eight RBI, a stolen base and a .389/.400/.648 slash line. He has always possessed the tools, and even put them into practice at times during his five-year career, but somehow the 25-year-old has always been a bit of a disappointment. There is potential Lawrie maintains the majority of his current surge and has his true breakout season in 2015. His FantasyScore salary makes him an attractive value play for contests, too.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie not ready to play

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:41:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (undisclosed) is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. 3B Max Muncy will be the starting third baseman for Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Lawrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Muncy ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has at least one hit in only four of his last 11 games and may not be a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie could miss a few games

Sat, 23 May 2015 17:33:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie (undisclosed) is a "little banged up" and could miss a couple of games, manager Bob Melvin said Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: While Lawrie is sidelined, Max Muncy ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should earn some extra playing time. Muncy has reached base in six straight games, scoring five runs and hitting two homers. He could make a decent source of cap relief at FantasyScore if he draws a friendly pitching matchup.
