Athletics | Stephen Vogt will be DH

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:50:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt will serve as the designated hitter against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Saturday, June 27, and is batting third in the lineup. C Josh Phegley will start at catcher and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is receiving a day off from catcher but is still in the lineup. Vogt has recorded at least one hit in seven of his last eight games and is a solid option for owners on FantasyScore. Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .333 this month with three home runs and seven RBI over his last five games. He could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Athletics | Billy Butler not playing Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 09:29:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Saturday, June 20. C Stephen Vogt will serve as the designated hitter and is batting third, while C Josh Phegley will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Vogt ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has struggled at times this month and has a .179 batting average in June. Owners may want to look for other options at the positon. Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has posted a solid batting average in his limited playing time this season and has five RBI in June. Owners may consider Phegley as a starting option if they are looking to save some money.

Athletics | Josh Phegley starting at catcher

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 10:46:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth against Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez Thursday, June 11. C Stephen Vogt is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't been terrible this year as a backup catcher, hitting .309 (21-for-68) with a home run and seven RBI. He's facing a youngster that has been rock solid in two major league starts, but he could be a sleeper play with an .808 OPS against right-handers. Vogt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could turn out to be an under-the-radar play, too, as he has a slash line of .291/.396/.567 with 10 of his 11 home runs against right-handers this year.

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:11:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Max Muncy isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Boston Red Sox. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base with C Josh Phegley drawing into the eighth spot in the lineup against RHP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 7-for-16 in his last four games and he's an excellent source of cap relief. Three of the seven hits have been of the extra-base variety.

Athletics | Josh Phegley batting seventh

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 12:34:09 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is batting seventh and starting behind the plate against the Boston Red Sox Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Facing lefty Wade Miley, Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a solid low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday. Phegley has a .333/.385/.472 slash line over 39 plate appearances against southpaws this season, after all.

Athletics | Josh Phegley, Mark Canha starting again

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:06:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley and OF Mark Canha are both starting again against a left-handed pitcher Friday, May 29. Phegley is catching and hitting eighth in the batting order, while Canha is starting in left field and hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup tonight against Capuano is a good one for both Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) to return great value on FantasyScore. Phegley has an OPS of .809 with his lone homer against southpaws in 32 at-bats. Canha is a bit more of a reach at a more expensive price, as he's hitting only .116 (5-for-43) with no homers and three RBI against lefties in 2015.

Athletics | Josh Phegley starting vs. Yankees

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:22:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against the New York Yankees Thursday, May 28. C Stephen Vogt is batting fifth and playing first base Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 13 games, Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 7-for-39 with a run, a home run and two RBI. He should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in FantasyScore contests. Vogt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has only received 34 plate appearances against left-handed pitchers this season, and he is typically viewed as a superior hitter against righties. Still, he is a top-tier catcher option Thursday, but you'll have to spend up to roster him.

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:45:30 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .308 against left-handed pitchers this season, but David Price will pose a tough test. FantasyScore owners should look elsewhere.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt on the bench

Sat, 23 May 2015 09:27:38 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. C Josh Phegley will be the starting catcher for the Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) likely is sitting out for a day and should return to the lineup in the next day or two. Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time this season and is entering the game with a .244 batting average. Owners on FantasyScore may be able to find a better option to use.
