Athletics | Billy Burns suffers painful injury

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:19:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns (testicles) left the game against the San Francisco Giants Friday, July 24, after suffering a testicular contusion. Burns suffered the injury after fouling off a pitch during an at-bat in the top of the third inning but didn't exit the game until the bottom of the fourth inning. He said after the game that he had no problem running but had difficulty standing up and was dealing with constant stomach pain.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is listed as doubtful for the game Saturday, July 25, but the injury is not considered serious enough to lead to a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Bob Melvin. Avoid using him in FantasyScore Saturday, and check back for further updates on his status.

Athletics | Hit streak over for Billy Burns

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:49:57 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns was hitless in four at-bats Monday, June 29, against the Colorado Rockies to snap his 16-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) is still a very strong FantasyScore value despite the hitless game. Until he goes ice cold, keep riding him at this price level. He hasn't had back-to-back hitless games all season.

Athletics | Billy Burns approaching record

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 19:18:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns (hip) returned from a two-game absence and went 2-for-5 with a double in a 5-3 loss to the Kansas City Royals Sunday, June 28, and his 16-game hitting streak is one shy of the franchise's rookie record.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) showed no signs of rust, and while you need to make sure his hip issue doesn't flare up over the next few days, it looks safe to resume using Buns as an effective cheaper option at FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Burns returns to action

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 12:41:56 -0700

Confirming a previous report, Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns (hip) is in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Sunday, June 28, batting leadoff and playing center field.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) had been out of the lineup since Thursday, June 25, due to a hip injury. Since speed is a big part of his game, FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid using Burns today to insure that he is fully healthy.

Athletics | Billy Burns likely back Sunday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 20:27:05 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns (hip) is expected to play against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, June 28, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been solid since earning regular playing time, but with speed being a big part of his value, you may want to avoid him at FantasyScore until he shows his hip injury isn't slowing him down on the basepaths.

Athletics | Billy Burns not starting

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:49:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Saturday, June 27. OF Sam Fuld will start in center field and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next day or two. Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has played better this month but is still hitting .210 this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Athletics | Billy Burns taking a seat

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:53:51 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Sam Fuld is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has very little offensive upside, as evidenced by his .207 average (34-for-164) with no home runs and 12 RBI. Avoid him everywhere.

Athletics | Billy Burns extends hitting streak

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:13:28 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns extended his hitting streak to 15 games Thursday, June 25, and he now has hits in 27 of his last 28 games. Burns was 1-for-5 with a run scored, and his season average now stands at .322.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) isn't the one-trick speed pony everyone likely labeled him as when he first came up anymore. He's doing it all now and is a great FantasyScore weapon at the top of the A's lineup.

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:40:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Billy Burns went 3-for-6 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored Wednesday, June 24, against the Texas Rangers to push his hitting streak to 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: Burns ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) is a must-have in FantasyScore while running hot. He is hitting .375 (24-for-64) with 12 runs scored and seven RBIs during the impressive run.
