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.

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.
