Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Compiles three hits and a homer Friday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vogt had a big Friday night, going 3-for-5 with his sixth homer of the year.

Vogt's homers are a bit off the 18 he smoked last year, but Friday's three hits did bump his average to .273. With the paucity of effective catching options in fantasy right now, Vogt is a solid option and while his numbers may never be huge, he is a good choice at catcher, especially considering he is likely to hit somewhere in the middle of the A's order all year long.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Homers and drives in three Friday night versus Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis was 2-for-4 on Friday night with three RBI and his 18th homer, a two-out go-ahead bomb in the eighth.

Although the batting average is a bit of a drain at .243, Davis has provided a ton of pop for the A's and fantasy owners with 18 homers and 49 RBI so far in 2016. Those numbers are good enough for top ten in the American League in both categories. Davis now has 38 homers since August First of last season, a number topped only by Edwin Encarnacion in all of baseball over that span.

Athletics' Eric Surkamp: Struggles through another outing Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Surkamp has another poor outing on Friday night allowing five hits, four runs (only two earned) and two walks over only 3.2 innings.

The outing actually lowered Surkamp's ERA under 7.00 for the season to go along with his brutal 1.97 WHIP. Surkamp has managed to make nine starts for the A's due to the extreme number of injuries in the rotation, but has done to make the A's want to keep him in the role and should be the first starter pushed out of the rotation when Sean Manaea and/or Rich Hill return.

Red Wings' Joe Vitale: Swaps sweaters Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

The Coyotes traded Vitale (concussion) and a pair of 2016 draft picks (No. 20 and No. 53 overall) to the Red Wings on Friday in exchange for Pavel Datsyuk and the 16th overall selection in 2016.

Vitale only appeared in one game in the 2015-16 season, as he was TKO'd by Boston's Kevan Miller in a fight last October. The 30-year-old fractured his orbital bone and ultimately experienced "concussion-related issues." It's not clear how Vitale's recovery is going, but the Wings still must be ecstatic with this deal, as it means the club no longer has to worry about Datsyuk's $7.5 million cap hit for the upcoming season.

Astros' Luis Valbuena: Expects to play Saturday despite sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valbuena left Friday's game with lower-back tightness but is expected to play Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Valbuena felt he could have stayed in Friday's game after injuring his back during a second-inning at-bat, but manager A.J. Hinch decided to remove him from the contest with the Astros already well ahead on the scoreboard. The Astros will confirm Valbuena's status for Saturday's game when they release their lineup several hours prior to first pitch.
