Athletics | Luke Gregerson notches save

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:27:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Jim Johnson came on in the eighth inning down 2-1 Monday, April 14. He threw a scoreless frame and ended up getting the win. RP Luke Gregerson threw a scoreless ninth inning for the save.

Fantasy Tip: Gregerson is the one to have right now. However, we're very skeptical because of Johnson's large salary on a miniscule payroll. We could see him getting the job back.

Athletics | Jesse Chavez continues dealing

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 06:21:43 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez had his third straight solid start Monday, April 14, but doesn't have a win to show for it. He allowed one earned run on four hits and no walks while fanning nine in seven innings in his no-decision against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: We've been on his bandwagon since his great spring showing. He has a 1.35 ERA and 22 K's in 20 innings this year. Buy now, if it's not too late.

Athletics | Scott Kazmir has sore triceps

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 20:18:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir (triceps) left his outing Sunday, April 13, due to triceps tightness. The injury is considered minor, and it is not expected to prohibit him from making his next scheduled start Saturday, April 19, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners might want to play it safe and reserve Kazmir, even with a juicy matchup against Houston, as he had a drop in velocity in his outing Sunday and that makes a pitcher who doesn't throw all that fast to begin with very hittable.
