    • Athletics' Matt Chapman: Laces three-run blast
      By RotoWire Staff

      Chapman went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs and three RBI on Wednesday against the Mariners. The slick-fielding third baseman also went 3-for-3 and reached base five times in Sunday's exhibition in Japan, so he has taken to this trip quite well. He underwent a minor shoulder surgery back in December but recovered quickly and already appears to be as dialed in as any A's hitter at the plate.

    • Chapman went 3-for-3 and reached base five times in a 5-1 exhibition victory over the Nippon-Ham Fighters on Sunady in Tokyo, Japan, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. Chapman has already been swinging a hot bat in Cactus League play, so Sunday's outburst was simply an extension. The elite defender will once again man the hot corner for the Athletics in the coming season while looking to build on his breakout 2018 campaign at the plate.

    • Chapman went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple and two runs scored in a 12-11 Cactus League win over the Cubs on Wednesday. Chapman knocked Cubs starter Jon Lester around for both of his extra-base hits, his third and fourth of the spring. The 25-year-old is most lauded for his elite defensive prowess, but his .278/.356/.508 line last season -- which was partly comprised of 72 extra-base hits (42 doubles, six triples, 24 home runs) -- implies he's on the precipice of profiling as one of the best all-around players in the game.

    • Chapman hit his first home run of spring, a fifth-inning solo shot off Mark Melancon, in a 5-1 Cactus League win over the Giants on Thursday. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk overall. Chapman also started at third base in the contest as he continues to work all the way back from December shoulder surgery. The 25-year-old complemented his elite defense with considerably improved offensive numbers last season, slashing .278/.356/.508 with 24 home runs and a whopping 72 extra-base hits overall. Seemingly on his way to stardom with both the bat and glove, Chapman remains a coveted fantasy asset across all formats entering 2019.

    • Athletics' Matt Chapman: Starting at third base
      By RotoWire Staff

      Chapman is batting second and starting at third base in Friday's spring game against the Rockies, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Chapman missed the beginning of spring training due to an illness but was able to make his spring debut at designated hitter Wednesday. The 25-year-old underwent left shoulder surgery in December but his return to third base Friday puts him fully on track for the Athletics' season opener March 20 against the Mariners in Japan.
