Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp was sent to the minors Tuesday, May 17.
Fantasy Tip: Surkamp had a 6.55 ERA and just 4.9 strikeouts per nine innings in five starts for the A's. He can be dropped in any AL-only formats.

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn might start over SP Eric Surkamp Tuesday, May 17, against the Texas Rangers. If that's the case, somebody will have to go on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: It's inevitable that Hahn will be back in the rotation at some point, so the A's might as well just make the move right now, especially since he has a far higher ceiling than a below-average hurler like Surkamp. The 26-year-old has a 3.00 ERA in two starts this season and should be monitored once he's back on the major league pitching staff.

Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp allowed four earned runs, four hits and two walks over three strikeouts over 2 2/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, May 11, against the Boston Red Sox.
Fantasy Tip: Surkamp threw just 33 of his 58 pitches for strikes, and his ERA ballooned to 6.55. He cannot be trusted in any fantasy format right now.

Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp was recalled from the minors to start against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Surkamp allowed six earned runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays his last time out and only has nine strikeouts in his four starts for the A's in 2016. Avoid him everywhere against the hot-hitting BoSox, especially at Fenway. Start your Red Sox tonight.

Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp is expected to start Wednesday, May 11. Manager Bob Melvin will name the official starter Tuesday, May 10.
Fantasy Tip: Surkamp gave up six earned runs and nine hits in a loss in 4 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays his last time out April 24, and his ERA stands at 5.59 after four starts in 2016. The lefty should be avoided in all fantasy formats against a strong-hitting Boston Red Sox team Wednesday.

Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp earned his second no-decision of the year in as many tries Wednesday, April 13, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He lasted 4 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits, while logging four walks and one strikeout.
Fantasy Tip: He now owns a relatively respectable 4.00 ERA but unsurprisingly, Surkamp has failed to escape the fifth inning in each of his assignments. Thus, he shouldn't really be considered except maybe for really deep AL-only leagues, and even then it's a stretch. Surkamp has never exhibited any notable potential and won't even be in the A's rotation in the long term.

The Oakland Athletics will recall SP Eric Surkamp from Class AAA Sacramento to start Friday, April 8, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Surkamp is not a recommended fantasy option, even in the deepest of AL-only leagues, nor in DFS play since the Mariners have been rolling along offensively during the early going.
Wed, 06 Apr 2016 16:20:38 -0700
Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp will start for the club Friday, April 8.
Fantasy Tip: The A's must really be having some starting pitching depth issues if they have to resort to this random journeyman for a start so early in the season. Surkamp shouldn't even be on anyone's radar, as the 28-year-old left-hander sports a career 6.47 ERA and 1.72 WHIP. It's just a spot start anyway.
