SS - OAK
Marcus Semien went 2-for-3, with a double, a run scored, and two RBI in Saturday’s Cactus League action against the Indians.
Semien figures to lead off for the A’s this year and logged 747 plate appearances last year batting .285/.369/.522 with 33 home runs, 123 runs scored, and ten stolen bases. The massive amount of plate appearances will be hard to duplicate, but he will still provide you with runs, 25 plus homers, and double digit steals. Semien should return top 12 value among shortstops this year.
MLB Network's Jon Heyman reports that Marcus Semien has informed the A's he is interested in a contract extension.
Semien is a Bay area native that has been with Oakland for years. In 2019 it all came together for him, batting .285 with an .891 OPS, 33 homers, and 10 stolen bases. Additionally, he played fantastic defense and finished third in the American League MVP voting. It's unclear if Oakland will be able to afford handing him a long-term extension. Semien can become a free agent following the 2020 season.
