Oakland Athletics

AL West


Oakland Athletics 1B Seth Brown went 2-for-5 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting a triple along with a RBI single in the A's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Brown picked up what was his 11th XBH on the season with the triple on Wednesday yet still has a lower batting average of .189. The first basemen does have 19 RBI on the season however which makes him a borderline decision whether to hold or drop for fantasy rosters.

Oakland Athletics utility man Christian Bethancourt went 1-for-4 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting a RBI single in the A's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Bethancourt has played 25 of the games the A's have played this year and that is due to his being able to play multiple positions. Regardless of how many games he has played the 30 year old should not be rostered as he has just eight RBI through the season and no home runs.

Oakland Athletics outfielder Luis Barrera went 3-for-4 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting three singles one of which was for a RBI in the A's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Barrera heated back up at the plate on Wednesday as he collected his first three hit plus performance of the season. The outfielder has a batting average of .348 and a OPS of .886 but is not worth rostering unless he sees more action as he has played in just 10 of the teams 40 games so far this season.

Oakland Athletics 2B Tony Kemp went 1-for-4 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting a sac fly RBI, and striking out once in the A's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Kemp has once again had a slow stretch at the plate this season as of lately as he has just four hits over the last 22 plate appearances. The second basemen also possesses a rather low OPS of .561 and with only one home run on the season is becoming hard to hold on to for managers in fantasy.

Oakland Athletics SP Daulton Jefferies pitches four innings on Wednesday, striking out five, walking three, and allowing seven hits for six earned runs in the A's 14-4 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Jefferies took his seventh loss of the season on Wednesday in a rather brutal outing as he allowed more runs than innings pitched and now sits with an ERA of 5.72. The A's starting pitcher is not worth rostering due to both his standing record and his strikeout percentage as he has just 28 strikeouts through 39 innings pitched.

Oakland Athletics C Sean Murphy went 1-for-3 at the plate on Tuesday, hitting a 2-run RBI single, and walking once in the A's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Murphy has struggled at the plate so far this season as he is batting just .189 with an OPS of .640. The A's catcher has 20 RBI on the season and four home run which makes him able to be rostered due to the position he plays alone.

Oakland Athletics 3B Kevin Smith went 2-for-4 at the plate on Tuesday, hitting a 2-run home run, and striking out once in the A's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Smith hit just his second home run of the season in the A's win as he helped the team shake out of their offensive funk as of lately. The A's third basemen should not be rostered as he is batting just .195 with an OPS of .579 with 11 RBI so far this season.

Oakland Athletics RP Dany Jimenez pitched 1 2/3 innings on Tuesday, striking out one in the A's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Jimenez was efficient on Tuesday as he cut down five batters on just 17 pitches to earn his seventh save of the season. The relief pitcher has an ERA of 0.59 and is worth rostering due to him being the main closer for the A's.

Oakland Athletics RP Zach Jackson pitched 1 1/3 innings on Tuesday, striking out two, walking two, and allowing one hit for zero earned runs in the A's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson picked up just his first win of the season on Tuesday but took a large amount of pitches to do it with 34 pitches thrown over 1 1/3 innings. The reliever has an ERA of 3.12 and should not be rostered at the moment as he does not come into games with save opportunities.

Oakland Athletics SP James Kaprielian pitched 5 1/3 innings on Tuesday, striking out six, walking one, and allowing four hits for two earned runs in the A's 5-2 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Kaprielian gave the A's a chance to win on Tuesday as he gave up just two runs in just over five innings pitched. The starting pitcher has an ERA of 4.50 and a WHIP of 1.28, he should not be rostered as he has a record of 0-2 with 16 strikeouts four games started.

Oakland Athletics RF Ramon Laureano went 0-for-3 at the plate on Monday, walking once in the A's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Laureano has had a rather slow start to the season since rejoining the team after his original 80 game suspension for drug use. The outfielder is worth rostering but is certainly hard to swallow on your roster at the moment with a batting average of .162 on the season.

Oakland Athletics SS Elvis Andrus went 2-for-3 at the plate on Monday, hitting an RBI double, and striking out once in the A's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Andrus drove in the lone run for the A's on Monday with a double. The A's shortstop is batting .231 and has just one home run and four RBI on the season which makes him unappealing in fantasy.

Oakland Athletics SP Zach Logue pitched 4 1/3 innings on Monday, striking out two, walking two, and allowing five hits for two earned runs in the A's 3-1 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Logue pitched an adequate game on Monday despite taking the loss as he allowed only two runs but was provided with little support. The A's starting pitcher has an ERA of 2.04 but should not be rostered at the moment as he does not provide enough value to warrant it.

Oakland Athletics SP Chad Pinder went 2-for-2 at the plate on Sunday, hitting a single along with a double, and walking once in the A's 4-1 loss to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Pinder is one of the A's best batsman at the moment and that is not saying much as they are currently seven games under .500. The left fielder is batting .253 and has 11 RBI's through 26 games played this season.

Oakland Athletics SP Frankie Montas pitched six innings on Sunday, striking out 12, walking one, and allowing four hits for two earned runs in the A's 4-1 loss to the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Montas was fantastic on Sunday despite taking the loss as he struck out a season high 12 batters in the A's loss. Unfortunately for the A's starting pitcher the team was unable to provide run support which led to him picking up his fourth loss of the season for a record of 2-4 on the season and remains a strong roster option even with an ERA of 3.67.

Oakland Athletics DH Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 at the plate on Saturday, hitting two singles in the A's 9-1 loss to the Angels in Game 2 of the doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has just one home run and eight RBI's through 21 games so far this season and a low OPS of .565. The second basemen should not be rostered at the moment as he is in the tail end of his career in his age 38 season.

Oakland Athletics SP Adam Oller pitched five innings on Saturday, striking out three, walking three, and allowing six hits for eight earned runs in the A's 9-1 loss to the Angels in Game 2.

Fantasy Impact: Oller was absolutely dominated on Saturday in Game 2 of the A's doubleheader as he gave up eight runs in five innings pitched. The starting pitcher has an ERA of 12.27 and should be avoided in all leagues no matter the depth.

Oakland Athletics RP Lou Trivino pitched 1/3 of an inning on Saturday, striking out the only batter he faced in the A's 4-3 Game 1 win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Trivino picked up the win on Saturday afternoon despite facing only one batter as the A's ended up walking it off in the ninth. The relieving pitcher has an ERA of 8.59 but still is worth a look in fantasy due to the fact that he sees high leverage situations on a regular basis.

Oakland Athletics 1B Sheldon Neuse went 1-for-3 at the plate on Saturday, hitting a double, and walking once in the A's 4-3 Game 1 win.

Fantasy Impact: The first basemen has slowed down a little bit after a hot start to the season as he is now back down below .300 batting .282 at the moment. He is still a serviceable option in fantasy as it was expected that he would likely not maintain such a high average over a full 162 game season.

Oakland Athletics SP Paul Blackburn pitched 6 2/3 innings in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader, striking out three, walking two, and allowing five hits for one earned run in the A's 4-3 win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact: Blackburn has been the best pitcher on the A's so far this season in terms of ERA as he an ERA of 1.67 so far this season. The starting pitcher also maintains an immaculate record sitting at 4-0 on the season and is well worth the roster spot despite playing on a rebuilding team.
