Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)? You won't find one much better than Austin Jackson. Of course, he's not the only "start" for the week. Stephen Vogt, Mike Napoli, Emilio Bonifacio, Chase Headley and Jed Lowrie also fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

News
On Monday night, Billy Burns made his major league debut, pinch-hitting for Josh Reddick and lining out. It's wasn't an auspicious beginning for the Athletics' callup, but there should be better times ahead.

Though he had not advanced beyond Double-A, Burns had already demonstrated Fantasy potential with his blazing speed. Burns stole 51 bases in 56 attempts for Double-A Midland after notching 74 steals across two levels in the Nationals' system in 2013. He has very little power, but Burns has shown good plate discipline and has some potential to help owners with batting average and on-base percentage.

Even as just a pinch-running specialist, Burns would have value for owners in AL-only leagues, but he will be more than that. According to MLB.com, Burns will fill the role vacated by Craig Gentry, who went on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right hand. That means he will platoon in center field against left-handed pitchers. That additional playing time gives Burns some appeal in deeper mixed leagues.

News
Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija didn't factor in the decision Tuesday, surrendering four earned runs on six hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out seven in his team's 7-4 win over the Astros.

Samardzija gave up a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning, which was his fifth home run allowed in his last four outings. He's managed to win two of his five starts with the A's, giving up just one earned run in each of his two wins. Samardzija owns a 2.92 ERA and 130:35 K:BB ratio in 144 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rays Monday.

News
Jason Hammel has been a mess on the mound since joining the Athletics. That mess got worse Wednesday in Houston.

Hammel was bombed for six runs in the first inning and yielded eight in 4 1/3 to lower his record to 0-4 with Oakland. He surrendered seven hits, including home runs to Jon Singleton and Robbie Grossman, while walking three and fanning four.

The right-hander, who has allowed 16 runs and five taters in 16 innings since the deal, will attempt to turn it around Tuesday against Tampa Bay.

Gentry played in place of Coco Crisp on Sunday, and was hit by a pitch on his right hand against the Rangers. He underwent an MRI, which revealed a non-displaced fracture.

Gentry is expected to be out a "couple of weeks," according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. He owned a .264/.326/.299 slash line with 10 RBI in 197 at-bats prior to the injury.

Gray (12-3) has rattled off five straight wins in July, but he hadn't walked as many as four batters in an outing since June 7 before doing so Saturday. He's surrendered one run or no runs in each of his last five starts to give himself a 2.65 ERA to go along with a 121:49 K:BB ratio in 139 innings. Gray is slated to face the Royals Friday.

News
Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir didn't have his best stuff Sunday, but still found a way to win.

Kazmir allowed two runs on seven hits over five innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. The only blemish against Kazmir was a two-run homer by Adam Rosales in the second inning. Other than that, Kazmir managed to pitch his way out of trouble on multiple occasions. Kazmir pitched around two base runners in the third inning, and loaded the bases in the fifth before working out of the jam. Kazmir threw 94 pitches during the outing, which is why he was pulled after five innings.

The win brought him to 12-3 on the year. He'll take on the Royals in his next start.
