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.

Athletics | Jon Lester acquired

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!

Red Sox | Grady Sizemore, Jonny Gomes could platoon

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:37:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he can envision a platoon between OFs Grady Sizemore and Jonny Gomes in left field.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise. Sizemore has cooled off since an initial hot start, and the Red Sox would like to keep the oft-injured Sizemore fresh through the long haul. It'll drop his value significantly in mixed leagues .

Red Sox | Outfielders struggling

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:00:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Grady Sizemore is hitless in his last 13 at-bats to drop his average to .213. He has just one extra-base hit in his last 11 games, in which he's hitting .128 (5-for-39). OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting .229 and has struck out once every three at-bats this year. OF Jonny Gomes is hitting .213 and has 19 strikeouts in 47 at-bats. OF Mike Carp is hitting .250 in 24 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: With Shane Victorino (hamstring) set to return this week, expect John Farrell to use the extra body as a way to mix and match his outfielders in order to give them some rest. Bradley and Sizemore figure to remain as regulars, but their playing time may fluctuate more frequently when Victorino is back.
