Athletics | Josh Phegley in against southpaw

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:54:24 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and is hitting fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Friday, Sept. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is never a bad consideration as a streamer against lefties on FantasyScore, and he can save you some nice salary cap space for the rest of your lineup. The A's backup catcher has a line of .295/.345/.495 with five of his eight homers against lefties, and Olmos shouldn't strike fear into anyone.

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:11:07 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Andrew Heaney Wednesday, Sept. 2. C Josh Phegley is starting and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) isn't a bad choice on FantasyScore today against the lefty; he's hitting .294 (30-for-102) with four of his seven home runs against southpaws. Phegley will save you some notable money at the catching position, too.

Athletics | Josh Phegley starting behind the dish

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:50:46 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is batting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Monday, Aug. 31. C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a home run in consecutive games, so perhaps he is finally snapping out of his nearly two-month slump. Don't rule out a strong finish to the season for Vogt. Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) owns a .297/.343/.475 slash line against southpaws, and he checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore Monday.

Athletics | Josh Phegley catching Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:51:18 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster Sunday, Aug. 30. C/1B Stephen Vogt will play first base and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .256 with one home run and six RBIs in 43 at-bats this month. Vogt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has demonstrated flashes of the play that made him an All-Star earlier this season, hitting .381 with four extra-base hits over the past week, so he may be worthy of a flier in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt out vs. southpaw

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 17:02:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Mike Montgomery Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has good numbers against lefties in limited duty (.299/.346/.485 with four of his seven home runs), and Montgomery has been sliding since a hot start when he initially joined the rotation. Phegley isn't a bad value play on FantasyScore if you want to save some money at catcher tonight.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt sitting vs. Rays

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:32:27 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Drew Smyly Friday, Aug. 21. C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Vogt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) at FantasyScore Friday, and the catcher owns an uninspiring .179/.239/.301 slash line since Wednesday, July 1. It is time to consider upgrades in all seasonal leagues. Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been solid against lefties (.298/.347/.489 slash line over 101 plate appearances) and won't break the bank in daily contests. He is worth a look at FantasyScore.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt sitting vs. lefty

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:48:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers left-handed SP Alex Wood Wednesday, Aug. 19. C Josh Phegley is catching and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) does have a .304 average (28-for-92) with four of his six home runs against southpaws this year, so he makes for an intriguing sleeper pick at catcher today at FantasyScore. Hitting in the middle of the lineup in a run-producing spot is another plus.

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 16:28:25 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .315 against lefties this season, and although he lacks significant power, he'll be an option for GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt will not start

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 09:20:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Sunday, Aug. 16. C Josh Phegley will start at catcher and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) probably is not playing because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .278 with two RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 08:53:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 13, with C Josh Phegley hitting fifth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .357 this month and has a favorable matchup against Mark Buehrle. Phegley is hitting .329 against lefties this year. He's not a bad low-end flyer on FantasyScore.
