Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront (elbow) will have Tommy John surgery Tuesday, April 12.
Fantasy Tip: Tough break for Doubront. You can drop in all AL-only leagues if you were stashing him. Eric Surkamp got the spot start in place of Doubront last week, but this may benefit Jesse Hahn the most. Keep him on your radar in AL leagues and consider him in cavernous mixed formats if he gets the call to join the rotation.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront (elbow) will receive a second opinion on his sprained left elbow, and he said he is unsure if surgery will be required.
Fantasy Tip: Look for Jesse Hahn to reclaim a rotation spot he likely should have never lost. Hahn is worth a look in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and players in deep mixed leagues should also keep an eye on his early starts. Doubront's fantasy value is extremely limited and it isn't out of the question to cut ties in all leagues, especially if he requires surgery.

Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left elbow Monday, April 4, and 1B Andrew Lambo was recalled from Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Doubront had minimal fantasy value in AL-only leagues, and now that is in question. Jesse Hahn is likely to take the start later this week against the Seattle Mariners, and he could get some run in the rotation with Doubront sidelined. Hahn is a flier in AL leagues for now.

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Hahn will likely take SP Felix Doubront's (forearm) spot in the rotation and start Friday, April 8, against the Seattle Mariners.
Fantasy Tip: Hahn was demoted after a terrible spring, but he is coming off a solid 2015 campaign and could be worth a look in daily games if he starts Friday. In AL-only leagues, he is worth a speculative stash.
Sat, 02 Apr 2016 15:05:48 -0700
Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront (forearm) left his start after 17 pitches on Saturday, April 2, with left forearm tightness.
Fantasy Tip: Doubront hasn't been particularly effective the spring, posting a 5.82 ERA across 17 innings even after tossing a scoreless frame Saturday. If this injury puts the southpaw on the disabled list and keeps him from making his scheduled start at the Seattle Mariners on Friday, there is a strong chance recently demoted Jesse Hahn would fill the void. Neither player, however, is worth using in most casual leagues at the moment.

Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront will be the fifth starter in the rotation, the team announced Tuesday, March 29. SP Jesse Hahn was optioned to Class AAA Nashville Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: This was unsuspected after Hahn returned a 3.35 ERA through 16 starts in 2015, and it is likely he'll work his way back into the starting rotation for Oakland at some point this season. He is a potential stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Doubront has a 4.64 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP through 85 career starts, and he should only be utilized in extremely favorable matchups as a streamer in deep leagues.
