  • Brent Rooker Absent On Monday

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker is out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Atlanta Braves. This appears to be a routine day off for Rooker who has struggled at the plate lately. He's slashing .196/.284/.320 with two homers and 10 RBI in 24 games in May. Hopefully, a rest day will help Rooker get back on track at the plate. Seth Brown will bat third and serve as the designated hitter versus right-hander Michael Soroka.

  • Brent Rooker Absent On Wednesday

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker is absent from Wednesday's starting lineup versus the Seattle Mariners. The right-handed slugger started off red-hot to begin the season, but has cooled down lately. He's hitting .200 (16-for-80) with just two homers and a 30/10 K/BB in May. That being said, it's not shocking to see the A's giving him the night off to rest. Seth Brown will bat third and cover right field, while JJ Bleday plays left field versus right-hander Bryce Miller on Wednesday.

  • Brent Rooker Not In Saturday's Lineup

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker is not in the lineup on Saturday against the Texas Rangers. Rooker has been a revelation for the lowly A's and fantasy managers that decided to add him to their rosters back in April. He slugged a walk-off home run in Friday's contest so the team is rewarding him with a day off on Saturday. For the year, the 28-year-old is slashing .319/.428/.673 with 11 home runs, 29 RBI, and a stolen base over 113 at-bats. He should be ready to rock for Sunday's series finale against Texas.

  • Brent Rooker Continues To Get On Base

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker has been one of the few bright spots for the A's early in the 2023 season. In Monday's 7-2 loss to the New York Yankees in the Bronx, Rooker went 1-for-3 with two walks and a run scored. The 28-year-old is thriving in Oakland in his first year, as he's currently slashing .319 (30-for-94) and leads the league in on-base percentage (.441), slugging percentage (.681) and OPS (1.122) while also recording four doubles, 10 home runs, 26 RBI, a stolen base and 18 runs scored in 118 plate appearances and 29 games. These numbers aren't sustainable, but Rooker needs to continue being started in all fantasy leagues while he's producing. He has a current six-game streak of reaching base.

  • The A's May Have Found A Hidden Gem On The Waiver Wire

    2022 was a year of change for Brent Rooker, who was a member of four different organizations within the span of seven months.  After five years with the Twins, Rooker was dealt along with Taylor Rogers to the Padres for Chris Paddack and Emilio Pagan in April 2022.  From there, Rooker found himself on the…

  • Brent Rooker Returns To A's Lineup Friday

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Texas Rangers and right-hander Jon Gray, serving as the designated hitter and batting third in the lineup. Rooker hasn't played since leaving Tuesday's contest early with a hamstring injury, but the ailment wasn't serious enough to land him on the injured list. The 28-year-old outfielder has earned regular playing time early in 2023 by hitting .324 (12-for-37) with a double, four home runs, 11 RBI and five runs scored in 12 games played for the last-place A's. Rooker is worth rostering in deeper leagues while he's swinging it well, but there just isn't a ton of fantasy value here for the rebuilding A's.

  • Brent Rooker Goes Deep Twice Thursday

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker had a nice game Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a pair of homers in an 8-7 loss against the Baltimore Orioles. He drove in five runs while scoring a pair himself. Rooker homered off of Cole Irvin in the third inning, and then off Austin Voth in the fifth. Although he started the season as a bench player, the 28-year-old has now started three in a row and was hitting third in the lineup on Thursday. On a terrible Oakland team, he has a chance to be an everyday player if he can continue hitting. Based on his track record that doesn't seem likely, but in deeper leagues he is someone to watch.
