Oakland Athletics SP Stephen Vogt is not in the lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Cole Hamels Thursday, Sept. 24. C Carson Blair is doing the catching and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Forget about using Blair ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) on FantasyScore. He has only four hits (one home run) in 28 at-bast with the A's this year.

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt (groin) is expected to return and play again this season, according to manager Bob Melvin. C Carson Blair is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Josh Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to receive the bulk of starts with Vogt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) out of the lineup, and Phegley is worth a look in deep mixed leagues. Vogt is worth stashing, but you should keep your expectations in check, and you shouldn't worry about dropping him if you need help in the now. Blair ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday.
