Athletics' Matt Joyce: Smacks solo homer in A's debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce blasted a fourth-inning solo homer in Saturday's 4-3 Cactus League loss to the Cubs.

The veteran got his Oakland tenure off to a momentous start while splitting right field duties with Chris Parmelee and hitting out of the three-hole. Come the regular season, Joyce is expected to form a productive platoon with Mark Canha, while preying on the right-handed pitching that he walloped to the tune of a .381 wOBA and .234 ISO with the Pirates last season.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Looking like ideal fit for A's roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce, who arrived in A's camp Thursday, is expected to thrive in a platoon role in his first season in Oakland, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

The left-handed veteran signed a two-year, $11 million deal this offseason and is expected to be deployed in right field when right-handed starters are on the mound. Joyce brings 106 career homers over nine major league seasons, and compiled an impressive .381 wOBA, .234 ISO and 12 of his 13 homers against righties in 2016 while with the Pirates. He also excelled as a pinch hitter, with his 15 RBI and 21 walks in that role both ranking tops in the majors. However, it's his proven ability to adapt and even thrive in platoon roles that has manager Bob Melvin most encouraged. "He's another guy that's used to (a platoon role)," Melvin said. "I don't know that he's ever happy about that. But the guys that are used to that and know how the system works, it's easier for them to acclimate and easier for them to prepare."

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Lands two-year deal with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce agreed to a two-year, $11 million contract with the A's on Wednesday, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Joyce figures to occupy the strong side of a right field platoon in Oakland, with Jake Smolinski spelling him against lefties. He boasts a career .252/.353/.449 slash line against righties, and last year he improved upon that career line, thanks largely to a 20.3 percent walk rate and 12 homers in just 197 at-bats against righties. If he can maintain that kind of patience, he could work his way into a spot near the top of Oakland's lineup. The fact that he won't be an everyday player and lacks standout tools makes him less appealing in standard leagues, but in deeper leagues and AL-only formats he makes for a relatively cheap, high floor option thanks to his established excellence against righties.

Pirates' Matt Joyce: Comes off bench for home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce came off the bench on Monday to go 1-for-2 with his 13th home run of the season.

On the aggregate Joyce has had himself a fine season as the Pirates' fourth outfielder. However, Joyce has hit just .163 since the All-Star break after posting a .295 average prior to the Mid-Summer Classic. Joyce is a bad bet for production over the final week, collecting just four hits in 35 September at-bats.

Pirates' Matt Joyce: Running out of steam
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Joyce grounded out in a pinch-hitting appearance and is batting .156 (5-for-32) since Aug. 9.

The outfielder has walked 12 times in the last month, giving him a .400 OBP, but he has no home runs after hitting 12 homers earlier in the year. Oddly, the worse Joyce does for the remainder of September, the better the likelihood he re-signs with Pittsburgh in the offseason as he becomes a more affordable option.
