  • Brent Rooker Could Return When Eligible

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker (abdomen), whose injured-list placement is retroactive to April 8, has started total-body workouts and will begin taking some dry swings in the next few days. Manager Mark Kotsay is hoping that Rooker can return to the team when he's eligible to come off the IL on April 17. The 29-year-old left last Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers with an injury to his costochondral cartilage and he was put on the IL last Thursday. It sounds like it could be a short stay for the outfielder, though. After making his first All-Star team in 2023, Rooker started off the 2024 season by going just 6-for-30 (.200) with two home runs, five RBI and 16 strikeouts in his first eight games before getting hurt.

  • Max Schuemann Headed To The Big Leagues

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland A's infield/outfield prospect Max Schuemann has been recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas as a corresponding move to the club placing outfielder Brent Rooker (abdomen) on the 10-day injured list on Thursday. The 26-year-old Schuemann is in line to make his big-league debut despite a slow start in Las Vegas where he is just 4-for-23 (.174) without an extra-base hit in a small 29-plate-appearance sample size. He hit .277 with nine home runs, 20 stolen bases, and a 14.3% BB% across 103 games at Triple-A in the 2023 campaign. Armed with big-time speed, Schuemann's lack of power throughout his minor-league tenure puts a hard cap on any fantasy value.

  • A's Put Brent Rooker On 10-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    The Oakland Athletics announced on Thursday that they placed outfielder Brent Rooker (abdominal) on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to April 8) and selected infielder/outfielder Max Schuemann from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. The team also moved right-hander Luis Medina (knee) to the 60-day injured list. Rooker is dealing with a costochondral cartilage injury in his abdomen after leaving Sunday's game early. It's unclear if the 29-year-old will be ready to return to the A's when he's eligible. After his first All-Star selection in 2023, Rooker is off to a slow start this year with a .200 average (6-for-30), but he does have two homers and five RBI in eight games. Until Rooker is able to return, Tyler Nevin figures to benefit from more playing time in Oakland, either in the outfield or at first base.

  • Brent Rooker Absent Again

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker (abdomen) is out of the starting lineup ahead of Wednesday's game against the Texas Rangers. This marks the second game in a row that Rooker has missed after exiting early during Sunday's game. It appears the organization believes this is a day-to-day issue. That being said, Rooker should avoid a trip to the injured list and return at some point this week. In the meantime, Abraham Toro will leadoff and serve as the designated hitter versus left-handed Cody Bradford on Wednesday.

  • Brent Rooker Leaves Sunday's Game With Abdominal Soreness

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder Brent Rooker left Sunday's game with abdominal soreness, per Chris McCosky of The Detroit News. Rooker struck out twice off Jack Flaherty before exiting the game. Rooker was replaced by Lawrence Butler, who hit a single in the top of the fifth inning. The Athletics are off on Monday as they travel to Texas to kick off a three-game set on Tuesday. The day off should bode well for Rooker, as he could be back in the lineup on Tuesday. If not, Lawrence Butler, Seth Brown, or Tyler Nevin are favorites to be slotted into the lineup instead.

  • Brent Rooker Stays Hot At The Plate

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland Athletics outfielder/designated hitter Brent Rooker went 2-4 en route to a 4-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday. Rooker launched his second home run in as many games in the top of the first to score Zack Gelof. The 29-year-old then knocked an RBI single in the eighth inning to bring in Gelof once again to increase their lead. Rooker has been swinging an awfully hot bat against the Tigers, tallying 11 total bases in the opening two games of this weekend's series. The left fielder launched 30 round-trippers last season and should be considered an above-average power option in a weak Oakland lineup.

  • Brent Rooker Back In The Lineup Monday

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland A's outfielder Brent Rooker is back in the starting lineup for Monday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox and right-hander Tanner Houck. The 29-year-old didn't appear in Sunday's series finale with the Guardians but will hit fifth and handle designated hitter duties on Monday. Interestingly, Rooker hasn't seen full-time duty this season on the heels of a breakout campaign that saw him club 26 home runs alongside an .817 OPS across 137 appearances in 2023. At the same time, he is also 0-for-8 with one walk against an ugly seven strikeouts through his first nine trips to the plate this season. Fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on his usage as it appears he may not be an everyday player despite his big 2023 campaign.

  • Brent Rooker's Spring Slump Continues

    Headshot for Brent Rooker

    Oakland A's outfielderBrent Rookerwent 0-3 with two strikeouts in Saturday's game against the San Francisco Giants, continuing his spring slump. He is now hitting just .154 in spring training for a .454 OPS. While Rooker is slumping, he still projects to be an above-average hitter in 2024. ATC projects him for 24 HR and 66 RBI with a .228/.312/.438 slash line. This would be a slight drop from his 2023 numbers, where he slashed 246/.349/.488 with 30 home runs, 69 RBI, 61 runs, and four stolen bases over 526 plate appearances. Rooker currently has an ADP of 346 and is likely only a viable option in deeper leagues or for fantasy managers searching for a cheap power source later in the draft.
