In Wednesday's 4-0 loss to Minnesota, Billy Burns went 0-for-4 at the plate.
It's been a pretty miserable season so far for Burns, but he's still a must-start in deep fantasy leagues and a player worth stashing away and occasionally starting in standard leagues only when stolen bases are a must in any given week.
At the plate, A's starting outfielder Billy Burns went 1-for-2 (his only hit being a double) and batted in two runs in a 7-1 win over the Giants.
While the switch-hitting Burns has shown that he can get an ample amount of stolen bases week in and week out, he's still only hitting at a .178 clip in the past month and is now only hitting .237 for the year. He doesnâ€™t have much fantasy value outside of the steals category, so if you own him, you already know why you do first and foremost and you really shouldn't expect him to help you in any other way stat cat wise.
In a 4-2 loss to Milwaukee, Billy Burns went hitless going 0-for-3 and struck out once.
Burns is still not hitting well despite him getting a another crack at hitting in the lead off spot for the A's in a little over the past week. He's still a good source to go to for steals, but that's about it.
In a 4-0 loss to Milwaukee on Wednesday, Billy Burns went 1-for-4 (his only hit being a double) at the plate.
Burns is currently hitting under the Mendoza Line (.248) and is still only a viable option for fantasy teams in desperate need of steals in standard leagues. He is, however, a must-start in deep leagues.
In Oakland's 5-1 win over Minnesota, Billy Burns went 1-for-3 with one run batted in.
Burns is still at best a must-own player in all types of fantasy leagues, but is no longer a must-start player in standard leagues.
