Athletics | Ike Davis in lineup Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 11:13:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will bat sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, July 4. C/1B Stephen Vogt, who played first base Friday, July 3, will catch Saturday, with C Josh Phegley getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: With Hernandez on the mound, Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. He is 1-for-5 against the righty in his career.

Athletics | Ike Davis sitting out

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:36:48 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not starting against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Tuesday, June 30. C Stephen Vogt is starting at first base, which allows C Josh Phegley to enter the starting lineup. OF Mark Canha is starting in left field and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be an excellent value play to save money at other positions tonight. He's sporting a .362/.423/.617 line with three of his five home runs off lefties in 47 at-bats this year. On the other hand, Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) and Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are weaker plays. Vogt has just one of his 13 long balls off lefties and Canha has just seven hits in 59 at-bats (.119) against southpaws in 2015.

Athletics | Billy Butler takes a seat

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:17:45 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, in favor of 1B Ike Davis.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a decent matchup against Colby Lewis, but he's hitting just .214 with two RBI this month. He's a lackluster option on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Ike Davis sitting vs. lefty

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 13:55:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. C Stephen Vogt is starting at first base and batting third against Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) only has 10 at-bats against lefties this season, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. He has started the last four games against righties, and he should be viewed as a low-end first baseman in all formats. FantasyScore players should only turn to Davis when he faces a favorable opposing right-handed pitcher.

Athletics | Ike Davis back in the lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:35:17 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis will be the starting first baseman against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has not played since the middle of May, so it could take him a few games to return to normal. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options at this point.

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 14:52:46 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely will see time at first base after being activated. Owners on FantasyScore may want to wait to see how he performs in a few games before using him in a lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wait until Davis ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) can officially return and prove his health in a full game or two before relying upon him in FantasyScore.

Athletics | Ike Davis to begin rehab assignment

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 10:35:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (quadriceps) will start his rehab assignment with Class AAA Nashville this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Davis could be back sometime next week if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. When he returns, he could be in a platoon with Mark Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) at first base. Neither Davis nor Canha are candidates for shallow mixed league rosters, and both are purely sleeper matchup plays on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Ike Davis could start rehab soon

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 16:22:58 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (quadriceps) said he thinks he will start a minor league rehab assignment sometime this week.

Fantasy Tip: If everything goes according to plan, Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be ready to return to the team sometime next week. Davis could be involved in a platoon at first base with Mark Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) when he's back, limiting his ownership to deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Ike Davis nearing rehab assignment

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 14:15:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis (quadriceps) is five or six days away from beginning a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should only be stashed in really deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Max Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Mark Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are platooning at first base in the meantime, with Muncy on the strong side of the platoon. Both players aren't very intriguing sleeper plays, however.
