Athletics | Sean Doolittle plays catch

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:32:12 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) played catch Tuesday, July 26, according to manager Bob Melvin.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle does not appear to be close to returning to action, so he can be dropped if you need the roster space in AL-only or cavernous mixed seasonal leagues. In a best-case scenario, he probably won't resume pitching before rosters are expanded in September.

Athletics | Dillon Overton to pitch Saturday

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 18:25:47 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Dillon Overton will be recalled from Class AAA Nashville to start against the Cleveland Indians Saturday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Overton is 1-1 with an 8.40 ERA through three starts this season, with five walks and 10 strikeouts over 15 innings. Avoid using the 24-year-old rookie southpaw in all fantasy formats.

Athletics | No Danny Valencia vs. Rangers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:15:16 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. 3B Ryon Healy is starting at the hot corner and batting ninth against Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has been excellent this season when on the field. But fantasy owners need to prepare for him to receiving less playing time going forward, and he's likely best left to deep mixed and AL-only leagues now. It's a shame because his .299/.351/.481 slash line plays in all settings. Healy is 11-for-43 (.256 batting average) with a .465 slugging percentage to start his career, and he's worth adding in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Josh Reddick drives in three

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:49:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and three RBIs Tuesday, July 26, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Reddick was held out of the lineup for a couple of games over the weekend due to a back issue, but he has four RBIs in two games since returning. It appears safe to get him back into the active lineup in all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Athletics | Coco Crisp back with a bang

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:47:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (neck) went 2-for-4 with a double, solo home run, walk and two RBIs Tuesday, July 26, against the Texas Rangers in his return to the lineup after missing two games due to a stiff neck.

Fantasy Tip: It appears safe to get Crisp back into the active fantasy lineup in all seasonal leagues and trust him as a mid-tier play in DFS, too.

Athletics | Sonny Gray picks up fifth victory

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:45:50 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over six innings in a win Tuesday, July 26, against the Texas Rangers. He allowed two more homers, and he has given up 17 on the season to match the career high he set last season.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a very disappointing season for the team's opening day starter, as he is just 5-9 with a 5.43 ERA despite the victory. Gray remains useful in AL-only fantasy play only at this point.

Athletics | Rich Hill hopeful for Sunday

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:45:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Rich Hill (finger) is hopeful to return Sunday, July 31. He has not started since July 17 due to a persistent blister. He was able to throw a bullpen session with tape over the blister Tuesday, July 26, after playing catch with it uncovered.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has had his name bandied about in trade rumors and he could be dealt by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. Fantasy owners will want to keep him reserved until his situation becomes more certain.

Athletics | Josh Phegley still cannot crouch

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:15:37 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley (knee) is not yet able to get in a crouch to get behind the plate, as he slowly recovers from surgery to remove a cyst from his right knee last month.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy Phegley is only worth a look as a No. 2 receiver in AL-only fantasy formats. Stephen Vogt remains the primary backstop in Oakland.

Athletics | Sean Doolittle making progress

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:15:03 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) has started doing "sock throws," or throwing balls the length of a sanitary sock, which limits the amount of strain on the shoulder and which is the first step before playing catch.

Fantasy Tip: Doolittle has a ways to go before he is able to return to the big club. With the closer situation rather shaky in Oakland, it's possible Doolittle could get a look in the role by the end of the season if he can return and stay healthy. However, don't expect that until at least September, if not 2017.

Athletics | Coco Crisp returns to the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:14:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (neck) returned to the lineup Tuesday, July 26, against the Texas Rangers after missing two games due to a stiff neck.

Fantasy Tip: Crisp still has plenty left in the tank, and he can help those in AL-only rotisserie formats in the runs scored and steals categories.

Athletics | A's stand by Ryan Madson as closer

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 19:13:42 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Ryan Madson will remain as the team's closer despite the fact he is tied for the league lead in blow saves and his ERA has increased in each month this season. "At this point, we still have confidence in him," manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday, July 26. "He's throwing as hard as he has all year here the last couple times out, he's performed really well the last couple of times before (Monday)."

Fantasy Tip: Madson has struggled, so fantasy owners of his will want to stash John Axford if you have the roster flexibility at this point.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt returns to the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:41:34 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt is batting fifth in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt returns after missing the last few games because of a family issue. He is hitting .280 with eight home runs and 30 RBI this season and should be a decent starting option in deeper mixed leagues.

Athletics | Khris Davis not in the lineup

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:28:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Khris Davis is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Tuesday, July 26. 3B Danny Valencia will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has recorded six hits and four RBI over his last eight games and is hitting .302 this season. He can be a starting option in AL-only leagues and some daily fantasy leagues.

Athletics | Stephen Vogt officially back

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:16:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Stephen Vogt was activated from the family emergency medical leave list Tuesday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Vogt is having a respectable season with 35 runs, eight home runs, 30 RBI and a .280/.321/.448 slash line, and he is a viable starting catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues. You can return him to your starting lineups.

Athletics | Danny Valencia drives in three

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:41:52 -0700

Oakland Athletics 3B Danny Valencia went 2-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and three RBIs Monday, July 25, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Valencia has struggled with his average in the month of July, as his batting average has slipped from .324 to .302. Still, he has solid power potential and is a must-start in AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats.
