Athletics | Three A's regulars sitting out

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:12:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia, SS Marcus Semien and 1B Billy Butler are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is batting eighth, while SS Arismendy Alcantara is playing shortstop and hitting ninth. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field again and is hitting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: Healy has seen regular at-bats since his call-up and is hitting .250 with a homer and six RBI in 24 at-bats, but he's merely short-term depth in AL leagues and a low-end deep sleeper pick in DFS. Alcantara has a very limited offensive profile and has no upside hitting low in the order. Smolinski is probably the most attractive of the trio in daily lineups as a value pick after homering last night.

Athletics | Coco Crisp, Yonder Alonso sitting

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:34:44 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Matt Moore Thursday, July 21. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field and is batting eighth, while 3B Ryon Healy draws in at third base and is hitting ninth. 3B Danny Valencia moves across the diamond to first base and SS Marcus Semien is batting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: With a lefty on the bump, Crisp and Alonso are rested. Smolinski doesn't move the DFS needle much hitting that low in the order. He's a desperation stab. Healy has looked good so far but is untested and also has limited upside hitting ninth tonight. Both Valencia and Semien have good power and are nice value selections for daily gamers against the lefty.

Athletics | Danny Valencia, Jed Lowrie sitting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:03:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia and 2B Jed Lowrie are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is hitting seventh, while 2B Arismendy Alcantara is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister. Also, SS Marcus Semien moves up to second in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Healy has shown well in his first 19 major league at-bats with six hits (one homer), six RBI and a .319 average. He's more of a deep sleeper pick for now in DFS and merely an AL-only option in seasonal leagues. Alcantara can run a little but but is extremely limited offensively and should be ignored in DFS. Semien gains daily value today hitting second and is a fine addition to any fantasy lineup with his 20 home runs and 48 RBI from the shortstop position.

Athletics | Oakland resting three players

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:48:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick, C Stephen Vogt and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Tuesday, July 19. 3B Danny Valencia will start at first base and is batting third. OF Khris Davis will start in left field, while 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. C Matt McBride will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is hitting only .214 over the last seven days but should still be a decent starting candidate. Butler is hitting .250 this month and can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues. McBride is hitting under .200 this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Athletics | Oakland resting three starters

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 11:23:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp, C Stephen Vogt and 1B Yonder Alonso are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Sunday, July 17. 3B Danny Valencia will start at first base and is batting fourth. OF Khris Davis will start in left field, while 1B Billy Butler will serve as the designated hitter and is batting sixth. C Matt McBride will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is hitting only .162 this month but should still be a decent fantasy option because of the numbers he has posted so far this season. Butler has at least one hit in five of the last seven games and has two RBI during that span. He should be a decent sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. McBride has not done much since being recalled and can be avoided in most leagues.

Athletics | Danny Valencia to play other positions

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:29:24 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia could see playing time at first base, in left field and at designated hitter due to the recent promotion of 3B Ryon Healy, according to manager Bob Melvin. However, Valencia is still expected to see less playing time than he had received during the first half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: While Valencia's fantasy value has taken a slight dip in seasonal leagues for now, he should still be viewed as a viable option in DFS on days when his name is penciled into the starting lineup. The 31-year-old could be moved to a contender before the trade deadline as the A's take an extended look at several of their younger players.

Athletics | Danny Valencia serving as DH Saturday

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 10:03:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is batting cleanup and serving as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, July 16. 3B Ryon Healy will man the hot corner for the second consecutive day and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is 2-for-6 with a pair of home runs and three RBI in his career against the 41-year-old knuckleballer, so he makes a decent option for daily fantasy lineups this afternoon. Healy went hitless in four at-bats in his MLB debut Friday, July 15, but should be picked up in AL-only fantasy leagues because he is expected to see a great deal of playing time down the stretch.

Athletics | Danny Valencia to see limited playing time

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 17:08:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia will see reduced playing time at the hot corner due to the promotion of 3B Ryon Healy from Class AAA, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia is batting .304 with 12 homers and 33 RBI through 67 games but with the A's continuing to fall out of contention, the organization will use the next few months to take a closer look at their youngsters. Don't be surprised if Valencia is moved before the trade deadline. Healy hit .326 with 14 home runs and 64 RBI through 85 games in the minors this year and should be grabbed in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:39:06 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Healy has not received any playing time since being called up from the minors and can be avoided by owners for the time being.

Athletics | Billy Burns, Danny Valencia resting

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:30:26 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns and 3B Danny Valencia are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Saturday, July 9. OF Coco Crisp will bat leadoff and play center field and INF Tyler Ladendorf will bat ninth and start at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp is batting just .227 through his first 22 at-bats this month and is hitless in six lifetime at-bats versus McCullers, while Ladendorf is off to a 3-for-32 start to his MLB career. Both players should be avoided in DFS Saturday.
