  • Tony Kemp Is Not In The Lineup On Saturday Against The Tigers

    Headshot for Tony Kemp

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Tony Kemp (ankle) is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Detroit Tigers. The veteran outfielder sprained his right ankle during Friday's contest so he's likely dealing with some soreness on Saturday. Rookie Lawrence Butler is getting the start in center field and Esteury Ruiz is taking over in left while Kemp gets this one off. Ruiz is a cheap speed option in DFS and is worth getting in your lineups whenever he's starting.

  • Tony Kemp Suffers Ankle Sprain On Slide Friday

    Headshot for Tony Kemp

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Tony Kemp (ankle) was forced from Friday's 8-2 win over the Detroit Tigers after sustaining a right ankle sprain. The 31-year-old suffered the setback after sliding into second base during the sixth inning and had to come out of the contest, but not before coming around to score on a three-run Shea Langeliers homer. Esteury Ruiz entered for him during the seventh inning, singling in two runs and swiping two bags during the ensuing frame. A's skipper Mark Kotsay hopes Kemp can return this season, but they could simply keep the veteran out of play for the end of a lost season. The on-base merchant is slashing .209/.304/.304 with five home runs, 27 RBI, and 15 stolen bases in 418 trips to the plate. The speedy Ruiz is batting .318 (14-for-44) with 12 steals since Aug. 30, so he should be worth rostering in shallow leagues for those categories to finish things up in 2023.

  • Previewing The 2023-24 Free Agent Class: Second Base

    Headshot for Hanser Alberto

    With the regular season winding down, a number of teams (and their fanbases) are already starting to turn their attention towards the offseason. Identifying free agent targets is a big part of that prep work, so it's worth taking an early look at the players who'll be available on the open market. We’ve already covered…

  • Tony Kemp Hits Fourth Home Run Of The Year

    Headshot for Tony Kemp

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Tony Kemp did something in Thursday night's 8-5 win over the Chicago White Sox that he normally doesn't do, hit a home run. Kemp finished the game 2-for-4 with a home run a double, RBI and two runs scored. Outside of his 12 stolen bases this year, fantasy managers haven't gotten much out of the 31-year-old, as he's hitting just .217/.305/.321 with four homers, 13 doubles, three triples, 24 RBI and 36 runs scored in 347 plate appearances and 100 games in his fourth year in Oakland. He's been a bit better in the month of August, though, going 7-for-28 (.250) with a homer, three doubles, three RBI and three runs scored in 14 games (eight starts). Kemp can continue being ignored in mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Esteury Ruiz Sitting Out On Friday

    Headshot for Seth Brown

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Esteury Ruiz is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. This appears to be a routine rest day for the 24-year-old speedster. This season, Esteury Ruiz is slashing .251/.304/.331 with 37 RBI and 48 stolen bases over 91 games. Tony Kemp, Lawrence Butler, and Seth Brown will cover the outfield versus right-hander Kyle Gibson on Friday. The expectation is that Ruiz will return to the lineup after this game.

  • Tony Kemp Goes On Paternity List

    Headshot for Tony Kemp

    The Oakland Athletics placed outfielder Tony Kemp on the paternity list on Friday and recalled rookie outfielder Lawrence Butler from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. Kemp will most likely miss the entire weekend series against the Washington Nationals on the road. The 31-year-old has only been useful in deeper leagues for his speed (12 stolen bases) on a bad A's team this year. In his 284 at-bats, he's hitting only .211 (60-for-284) with just three home runs, 11 doubles, three triples, 22 RBI and 34 runs scored in 93 games. Butler, who is a top-five prospect for the A's per MLB Pipeline, is a much more attractive fantasy piece for his power/speed combination for the remainder of the season.

  • Brent Rooker Dealing With Illness

    Headshot for Tony Kemp

    Oakland Athletics outfielder/designated hitter Brent Rooker (illness) was a late scratch from the lineup for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins. According to Sonja Chen of, the slugger is dealing with an undisclosed illness, but there's no word on the severity. Rooker has been the best bat in the club's lineup this season, slashing .244/.340/.477 with 16 homers over 80 games. Tony Kemp will take his place, playing left field and batting leadoff against Twins right-hander Joe Ryan. Despite his spot in the lineup, fantasy managers can mostly stay away from the 31-year-old, who is batting just .203 with three bombs and nine stolen bases across 74 contests.
