Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray (illness) is dealing with severe gastroenteritis and remains in the hospital. He continues to receive fluids and antibiotics, and he could be released from the hospital Wednesday, July 1, or Thursday, July 2. However, there is no timetable for his return to the mound, and the A's are keeping SP Chris Bassitt around in case Gray can't make his next turn Sunday, July 5.
Fantasy Tip: This is the only setback in what has been an excellent season for Gray ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) in 2015. A matchup against the Seattle Mariners Sunday is nice, but you should be skeptical of paying up for him on FantasyScore if he makes the start, since he could still be weak from his illness or on a pitch limit.

Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt is making the start against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, June 30, after SP Sonny Gray (undisclosed) was scratched for undisclosed reasons.
Fantasy Tip: First of all, make sure you remove Gray ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) from all your FantasyScore lineups. In what was a game to avoid all Rockies batters, now has become one to consider stacking them in daily games against Bassitt.

Oakland Athletics SS Marcus Semien and P Chris Bassitt could make immediate contributions to the team next year. C Josh Phegley and 1B Rangel Ravelo are expected to start at Class AAA. It appears that shortstop is Semien's job to lose in spring training, although he's mostly played third base and second with the Chicago White Sox. Bassitt could be the team's fourth or fifth starter going into next season.
