Athletics | Josh Phegley catching Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:38:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is back in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Sunday, July 5, batting fifth. C/1B Stephen Vogt, who was behind the plate Saturday, July 4, will play first base and bat second.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .273 overall but is hitting .321 versus lefties this season, making him worthy of consideration for FantasyScore lineups this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: With Hernandez on the mound, Davis ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. He is 1-for-5 against the righty in his career.

Athletics | Josh Phegley hitting fifth

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 15:29:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley will start behind the plate and hit fifth in the order Thursday, July 2, against the Seattle Mariners and LHP Roenis Elias. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is crushing left-handed pitching to the tune of a .340 batting average this season. Phegley is worth a start any time he's facing a southpaw, and he offers a measure of cap relief to FantasyScore owners.

Athletics | Ike Davis sitting out

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 16:36:48 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Ike Davis is not starting against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Jorge De La Rosa Tuesday, June 30. C Stephen Vogt is starting at first base, which allows C Josh Phegley to enter the starting lineup. OF Mark Canha is starting in left field and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could be an excellent value play to save money at other positions tonight. He's sporting a .362/.423/.617 line with three of his five home runs off lefties in 47 at-bats this year. On the other hand, Vogt ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) and Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are weaker plays. Vogt has just one of his 13 long balls off lefties and Canha has just seven hits in 59 at-bats (.119) against southpaws in 2015.

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.
