Athletics' Matt Joyce: Homers against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two RBI during Wednesday's win over Tampa Bay.

Joyce has settled in as the primary leadoff hitter against right-handed hurlers and sports a .223/.331/.414 slash line with 12 homers, 38 RBI and 40 runs for the year. Those are serviceable numbers in deep settings, but because he rarely starts against southpaws, Joyce's upside is limited.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Rays, Joe Salvatore of KCBS Radio reports.

The A's will go with a righty-heavy lineup against southpaw Blake Snell, with Rajai Davis starting in right field. Joyce has played regularly, but is hitting just .209 with one home run in 43 July at-bats. He has salvaged things somewhat with a .358 OBP over that stretch.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Effective out of leadoff spot Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 3-for-5 with a two-run infield single and also scored a run in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Indians.

It was Joyce's first three-hit effort in nearly a month, as he'd last accomplished the feat June 17 versus the Yankees. The veteran outfielder's batting average had sunk to .187 as recently as June 3, but he's slashed .276/.382/.483 and generated a .372 wOBA in the 136 plate appearances he's logged across the subsequent 34 games.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Reaches base twice in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, a walk and a run in Friday's 5-0 win over the Indians.

The veteran leadoff man got the second half off to a productive start by opening the scoring with a run-scoring double to right-center in the third. Joyce has hit safely in six of his last seven games, yet still carries an unsightly .188 average through 10 July contests. The 32-year-old's strikeout rate is actually down to 20.7 percent this season, his best effort in that category since 2013. However, he's also seen a drop of nearly five percent in hard contact (31.5 percent) over last season's 36.0 percent figure, while his ISO has taken a tumble from .221 to .191.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Slugs 11th homer in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the White Sox.

Joyce was back at the top of the order Tuesday and provided his first hit of July in the form of a 414-foot shot to center that erased an early 2-0 deficit. The veteran outfielder has three homers in the last 11 games overall, although his .220 batting average is currently his second-lowest figure in that category over the last eight seasons.
