Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia, SS Marcus Semien and 1B Billy Butler are not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is batting eighth, while SS Arismendy Alcantara is playing shortstop and hitting ninth. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in center field again and is hitting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.
Fantasy Tip: Healy has seen regular at-bats since his call-up and is hitting .250 with a homer and six RBI in 24 at-bats, but he's merely short-term depth in AL leagues and a low-end deep sleeper pick in DFS. Alcantara has a very limited offensive profile and has no upside hitting low in the order. Smolinski is probably the most attractive of the trio in daily lineups as a value pick after homering last night.

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia and 2B Jed Lowrie are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. 3B Ryon Healy is at the hot corner and is hitting seventh, while 2B Arismendy Alcantara is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Houston Astros SP Doug Fister. Also, SS Marcus Semien moves up to second in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Healy has shown well in his first 19 major league at-bats with six hits (one homer), six RBI and a .319 average. He's more of a deep sleeper pick for now in DFS and merely an AL-only option in seasonal leagues. Alcantara can run a little but but is extremely limited offensively and should be ignored in DFS. Semien gains daily value today hitting second and is a fine addition to any fantasy lineup with his 20 home runs and 48 RBI from the shortstop position.

Oakland Athletics 2B Arismendy Alcantara was recalled from Class AAA Nashville Wednesday, July 20. In a corresponding move, SP Dillon Overton was optioned to Nashville.
Fantasy Tip: Alcantara has plus-wheels and can help owners in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues chasing steals. However, he likely won't receive enough playing time to be a regular fantasy contributor. Overton can be replaced in all seasonal leagues.

Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea (forearm) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, June 29. 2B Arismendy Alcantara was optioned to Class AAA Nashville in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Manaea is a promising young lefty for the A's, but he's been up and down in his rookie season, going 2-4 with a 6.02 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 7.3 K/9. He can be useful in the right matchups, but he's probably far too risky for most to rely on in his first start off the DL tonight against the Giants.
