      Athletics 3B Danny Valencia hits two home runs in win Friday

      Athletics third baseman Danny Valencia had a monstrous game on Friday, as he went 3 for 3 with two homers, a walk, and three RBI in a 4-3 win over the Astros. It was shocking to see the Blue Jays designate Valencia for assignment in early August, so the A's came in and swooped him for the future. Valencia has put together a very nice season, as he has a .288 average to go along with 16 homers and 60 RBI in just 295 at-bats. Most fantasy circles think of Valencia as a lefty-killer, but he actually has better numbers off righties this season and he's shown his versatility all season long.

      Athletics 3B Danny Valencia ready to roll Thursday

      Athletics third baseman Danny Valencia has overcome a shoulder issue and is back in action Thursday as the cleanup hitter against the White Sox, per Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago. Valencia missed two games with issue, but has claimed an advantageous spot in Oakland's lineup. He had a really nice month or so, but his career numbers suggest he is better suited for the short side of a platoon. It would not be surprising if he regressed over the final two weeks of the season.

      Athletics 3B Danny Valencia not in Wednesday's lineup

      Athletics third baseman Danny Valencia (shoulder) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox. Stiffness in Valencia's trapezius muscle resulted in the 30-year-old's scratch from Tuesday's lineup, and he'll be forced to sit again Wednesday. Brett Lawrie will start again at third base, but look for Valencia to push Lawrie back to the keystone once healthy, while likely also returning to the cleanup spot in the batting order.
