Athletics | Jonny Gomes, Stephen Vogt to platoon

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:08:15 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Jonny Gomes and C Stephen Vogt are expected to platoon in the lineup, with Vogt mostly playing first base and Gomes mostly playing in left field. 1B Brandon Moss is a swingman that can play both first base and the outfield.

Athletics | Jonny Gomes, Sam Fuld could platoon

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:11:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics OFs Jonny Gomes and Sam Fuld could serve in a platoon in left field to replace OF Yoenis Cespedes, who was traded to the Boston Red Sox. Fuld also gives the A's a solid defensive outfielder.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes is clearly the better offensive weapon and fantasy option, but the move to Oakland in a pitcher friendly environment takes some of the intrigue out of his bat. In a platoon role with Fuld, he's purely AL-only material.

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:00:10 -0700

The Oakland Athletics acquired SP Jon Lester and OF Jonny Gomes from the Boston Red Sox for OF Yoenis Cespedes and a competitive balance pick, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lester's value increases slightly with the move to a more spacious park in Oakland in an arguably weaker-hitting division. Gomes should receive platoon playing time and is an AL-only option. For more, Click on our Trade Deadline Tracker!
