      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Tallies three hits, including homer, in Saturday blowout

      Valencia went 3-for-4 with a solo homer, walk and three runs scored in Saturday's 12-3 victory over the Tigers. The 31-year-old launched a solo shot, his seventh, off Tigers starter Matt Boyd in the fourth, his first gopher ball since May 17. Valencia continues to punish left-handed pitching in particular, amassing a .371 average and five homers on the season against southpaws. He's hit well against all comers however, as he's now slashing .311/.341/.521 on the season, while frequently hitting out of the clean-up spot.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Drives in two with double

      Valencia went 1-for-5 with a two-run double during Monday's 5-0 victory in Seattle. Valencia was quiet for most of the game, but finally made his mark with the bases loaded in the eighth inning. While he's just 3-for-21 with three RBI over the last five games, the third baseman still owns an impressive .529 slugging percentage this season and continues to hit in the heart of the A's order. It wouldn't be surprising to see him heat up again in the aftermath of this late-game success.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Launches two homers in return Friday

      Valencia (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with two solo homers in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Rays. The veteran third baseman returned to the lineup in fine fashion, after missing the last two games of the series versus the Red Sox due to his hamstring ailment. The two-homer performance continued a streak of hot hitting for Valencia, who's now hit safely in four straight games. The effort also marked the first time that the 31-year-old had gone deep all season, and brings his 2016 line to .323/.362/.462 over 65 at-bats.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Back in action Friday

      Valencia (hamstring) is back in the lineup Friday against the Rays, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. Renewed hamstring tightness cost Valencia a couple starts, but he will return Friday to take on right-hander Jake Odorizzi. The 31-year-old Valencia continues to hit both lefties and righties at a good clip, but there hasn't been any power to speak of to this point, and until he starts barreling the ball more consistently, Valencia will remain merely a deep-league option.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Day-to-day with hamstring tightness

      Valencia is considered day-to-day after exiting Monday's game against the Red Sox with hamstring tightness, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. While this injury doesn't seem to have long-term implications like his most recent stint on the 15-day DL from the same hamstring, Chris Coghlan will likely take over for Valencia if a day of rest is needed Tuesday.
