Athletics | Skipping Jason Hammel

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 15:07:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jason Hammel's next start will be skipped. The Athletics will go with SPs Sonny Gray, Jon Lester and Scott Kazmir this weekend against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: A short-term blow, especially in weekly leagues, but Hammel's value remains the same. He shouldn't be started in unfavorable matchups.

Athletics | Brandon Moss not in lineup

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 11:27:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics 1B Brandon Moss is not in the staring lineup Friday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The A's are facing Alex Wood, a lefty, so the day off for Moss makes sense. Make sure he's not put into any of your daily lineups.

Athletics | Andy Parrino expected to come up

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:42:36 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Andy Parrino is expected to be recalled from the minors, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Parrino will be recalled to make up for the loss of Jed Lowrie (finger). Parrino can fill in at the middle infield positions. It's unclear how much he might play, and he could just be depth on the infield. Consider him only in AL-only formats.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie expects to go on DL

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:10:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (finger) said he expects to be placed on the 15-day disabled list, because he is not helping the team. Lowrie said he has tried to take part in baseball activities, but the finger is affecting his play.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto Callaspo and Eric Sogard could see time at shortstop if Lowrie is placed on the disabled list. Neither player has much value outside of AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie in, Brandon Moss out

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 13:07:19 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (finger) is in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 13, but 1B Brandon Moss is sitting.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie will likely see plenty of rest days like yesterday now that it's known he's playing with a fractured finger. That'll limit his fantasy value significantly. Moss figures to be seeing a day off.

Athletics | Josh Donaldson breaks out with two long balls

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 09:19:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Josh Donaldson was homerless in his last 11 games and was hitting just .216 in his last 55 games before launching two home runs in the win Tuesday, Aug. 12. All three of his hits Tuesday night came against pitches on the inner half of the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Donaldson's prolonged slump was probably worrying his fantasy owners, so this two-homer night was a nice sight to see. Hopefully for those that own him, it keeps him hot and breaks him out of his recent funk. Continue to start him.

Athletics | Ryan Cook continues impressive scoreless streak

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 09:17:01 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Ryan Cook had a perfect seventh inning against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, Aug. 12, extending his scoreless streak to 20 innings, which is the longest active streak in the majors right now.

Fantasy Tip: Cook isn't extremely valuable to fantasy owners because he's not closing games out in the ninth, but he's been pretty darn good otherwise, making him valuable in AL-only leagues for his peripherals alone.
