Athletics | Max Muncy playing third base

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:38:08 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Max Muncy is starting at third base against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Sunday, June 28, batting eighth. 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting just .160 this month and is not a great FantasyScore option this afternoon. Remove Lawrie ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) from all fantasy lineups.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie sitting out

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 09:45:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16, in favor of 3B Max Muncy.

Fantasy Tip: Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) hasn't done much with his .211-2-6 line to give reason to use him on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Butler sitting vs. Friars

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:52:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Billy Butler is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 15. 1B Max Muncy is batting seventh and playing first base against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Butler ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is mired in a 9-for-59 skid with a .153/.224/.203 slash line. However, looking forward, there is room for correction, as he sports an unsustainably low .184 BABIP. Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players.

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 12:31:35 -0700

Athletics | Mark Canha starting at first

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 17:17:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Mark Canha will start at first base and hit seventh in the order Tuesday, June 9, against the Texas Rangers. 1B Max Muncy comes out of the lineup against RHP Nick Martinez.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is riding a four-game hit streak, which includes a 3-for-4 performance with two doubles, Sunday, June 7. Canha can offer some cap relief in an excellent matchup for the A's.

Athletics | Max Muncy off Sunday

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 | Brett Lawrie out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 11:41:06 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Saturday, June 6. INF Max Muncy will start at the hot corner and bat seventh. Manager Bob Melvin said Lawrie is being given the day off to rest his back and added that his exclusion from the lineup has nothing to do with the incident Friday, June 5, where a fan sustained life-threatening injuries caused by a shard from Lawrie's broken bat.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs Friday, June 5, but will get a day of rest despite collecting multiple hits in five of his last six games. Muncy ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is only batting .176 over the last two weeks and .226 for the season, so avoid using him in FantasyScore.

Athletics | Max Muncy out of lineup Wednesday

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:24:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Max Muncy is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Mark Canha is in the starting lineup at first base, and he is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is likely in the lineup because the Tigers are throwing righty Anibal Sanchez, and Muncy is a lefthanded hitter. Canha got off to a hot start but has cooled significantly and is not a good fantasy option.

Athletics | Josh Phegley starting at catcher

Tue, 26 May 2015 16:45:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the order Tuesday, May 26, against the Detroit Tigers. C Stephen Vogt will start at first base and 1B Max Muncy is out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting .308 against left-handed pitchers this season, but David Price will pose a tough test. FantasyScore owners should look elsewhere.
