Player Outlook
Brent Rooker went from being designated for assignment by the Royals in November of 2022 to becoming a bona fide breakout slugger for the Athletics in 2023. He was one of only 29 major leaguers to reach the 30-homer plateau and he posted the 14th-highest OPS (.817) among all qualified American League hitters. Rooker strikes out often and is probably never going to be a good source for batting average, but his power stroke sure appears to be a bankable asset. He finished in the 93rd percentile last year in barrel percentage and was in the 91st percentile in hard-hit rate. The 29-year-old is going to have to make a lot of noise on his own as part of a mostly punchless Oakland offense, but that poor supporting cast at least assures him everyday at-bats in a fruitful lineup spot.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Drills 11th home run

    Rooker went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to Kansas City. Rooker belted a three-run shot in the ninth inning, but it wasn't enough for the Athletics to mount a late comeback. It was his first homer since May 12, though six of his 11 long balls this year have come in May. Rooker is following up his 30-homer breakout season nicely, posting a .281/.358/.578 slash line with 18 extra-base hits and 32 RBI through 151 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Homers, plates two in loss

    Rooker went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's loss to the Mariners. Rooker stayed hot at the plate with his fourth multi-hit effort in his last five games and second home run over that span as well. Since the start of May, Rooker is slashing .441/.525/.882 with four homers, 12 RBI, 11 runs and a 6:7 BB:K in 40 plate appearances. He's now up to 10 long balls on the year and is one of 10 players with double-digit home runs thus far. Rooker also owns a .632 slugging percentage and 1.012 OPS, both of which would rank third in baseball if he had enough plate appearances to qualify.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Another multi-hit performance

    Rooker went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's win over Seattle while also drawing a walk. Rooker singled in each of his first two at-bats, with the latter one driving home Brett Harris to put the A's on top 2-1. The right fielder would also draw a walk in the eighth before stealing second and coming around to score Oakland's fifth run of the game on a Max Schuemann double. Rooker has now hit safely in five straight games and has recorded multiple hits in three of his last four overall, posting one homer, four RBI and five runs scored over that latter stretch.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Stays hot in twin bill

    Rooker went 5-for-9 with a walk, two doubles, a home run, four runs scored and three RBI across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader split with the Rangers. The 29-year-old did most of his damage in the matinee, slugging a three-run homer in the seventh inning off Cole Winn. Rooker has hit safely in six of the last seven games, batting .462 (12-for-26) with three doubles, four long balls, 10 runs, 11 RBI and a strong 5:5 BB:K. After a breakout 2023, Rooker might be finding another level this season -- through 27 contests, he's slashing .277/.370/.628 with nine homers and 24 RBI.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: On base three times in loss

    Rooker went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs in a loss to the Marlins on Sunday. A day after slugging two home runs in the same inning, Rooker laced the only extra-base hit of the afternoon for the Athletics. Rooker's multi-hit effort was his second straight and third in the last eight games, pushing his slash line over the entirety of that span to a spectacular .407/.500/.852 across 32 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Homers twice in third inning

    Rooker went 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in Saturday's 20-4 victory over the Marlins. HE became the first Athletics player to homer twice in the same inning since Mark McGwire did it in September of 1996. Rooker did it during Oakland's 10-run third inning Saturday, taking starter Trevor Rogers deep with a two-run shot and then reliever Darren McCaughan over the boards with a three-run blast. He also added a single and a walk. Rooker is up to eight home runs on the season even after going on the injured list last month. Of course, he's also hitting just .240 and striking out at a 36.5 percent rate, but fantasy managers knew what they were getting into with Rooker and should be satisfied with the returns 22 games in.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Goes deep in win

    Rooker went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Friday's win over the Marlins. Rooker opened the scoring Friday night, crushing a titanic 440-foot homer off Ryan Weathers in the fourth inning to give Oakland the lead. Despite sporting a .211 batting average, the Athletics designated hitter has provided plenty of power with six homers while slugging .507. Rooker may be heating up along with the spring weather, as he's hit .269 (7-for-26) with two homers and eight RBI over his last eight games.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Moves to bench Wednesday

    Rooker is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pirates. Rooker will get a day off after he started in each of the Athletics' last 11 games since being reinstated from the 10-day injured list April 19. With Rooker getting a breather Wednesday, Shea Langeliers will get a day off behind the plate and will serve as Oakland's designated hitter.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Accounts for team's offense in loss

    Rooker went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and two walks in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday. The veteran uncorked a 418-foot shot to left field off Clarke Schmidt in the sixth inning for the Athletics' only runs of the day. The homer was Rooker's third in the last six games; however, as impressive as that power surge is, the trio of long balls are the only hits he's generated over the 22 plate appearances he's logged in that span, and his stellar .532 slugging percentage is offset by a .191 average and .283 on-base percentage.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Goes yard again

    Rooker went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Guardians. Rooker homered for the second time in three games since returning from the 10-day IL due to a rib injury. He's swatted four home runs this season -- each coming in his last six games. On the year, Rooker is slashing .205/.244/.538 with a 51.2 percent strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Activated from injured list

    Rooker (ribs) was activated from the 10-day injured list by the Athletics on Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Rooker wound up missing just the minimum 10 days while dealing with an injury to his ribcage area. The 29-year-old has popped a couple home runs in the early going this season but has just a .659 OPS and 16:1 K:BB across 31 plate appearances. Rooker is not in Friday's lineup at Cleveland in his first game back from the IL.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Heads to injured list

    Rooker was placed on the 10-day injured list by the Athletics on Thursday with a costochondral cartilage injury. Rooker had to depart Sunday's' game versus the Tigers with the injury and didn't make enough improvement in subsequent days to avoid the IL. He'll be eligible to return next week but it's not clear at this point whether he might be ready by then.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Remains on bench Wednesday

    Rooker (abdomen) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers. Rooker will remain on the bench for the second game in a row since exiting Sunday's 7-1 win over Detroit with abdominal soreness. The Athletics continue to view Rooker as day-to-day, but a stint on the injured list could grow more likely if he isn't able to re-enter the lineup by the weekend.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Not starting again

    Rooker is not in the lineup Sunday against the Guardians. Rooker started Opening Day and Saturday as the designated hitter, but he did not start Friday. In his first nine plate appearances, the 29-year-old has a walk and no hits. Seth Brown is the designated hitter Sunday, with Esteury Ruiz starting in left field.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Blasts three-run homer Tuesday

    Rooker went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run and an additional run in a Cactus League tie with the Rangers on Tuesday. The taste of offensive success, which was highlighted by a sixth-inning homer with Zack Gelof and JJ Bleday aboard, was a much-needed respite from Rooker's spring struggles. The 29-year-old's round tripper was his first since Feb. 27, and he now has back-to-back two-hit efforts after a 2-for-21 funk that had encompassed his previous eight games.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Bat starting to come around

    Rooker went 1-for-3 with a run in a Cactus League win over the Angels on Wednesday. The Athletics' primary designated hitter was 0-for-4 through his first two spring games, but he's bounced back to go 4-for-15 with a home run, two RBI, a walk, a stolen base and four runs over his subsequent five exhibitions. Rooker broke out with an out-of-nowhere 30-homer tally in 2023 while playing a career-high 137 games, although a 32.7 percent strikeout rate he'll be looking to significantly shave down this season helped cap his adequate .246 average and encouraging .329 on-base percentage from being even better.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Homers in 2023 finale

    Rooker went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Angels. Rooker capped off his 2023 campaign on a strong note by going perfect at the plate and hitting his 30th home run of the season. The 28-year-old began the year as one of the hottest hitters in baseball before having a brutal hitting stretch during May and June. He maintained more of a steady approach after the All-Star break, slashing .246/.313/.403 with 14 homers, 25 RBI, 29 runs and a 16:80 BB:K in 223 plate appearances. Rooker was one of the few bright spots for a struggling A's team and could be a trade piece for them in the offseason.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Productive in Wednesday's loss

    Rooker went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and a stolen base in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday. Rooker made good use of the one at-bat he hit safely in, plating Ryan Noda and Aledmys Diaz to snap a 2-2 tie in the fifth inning. The slugger also added to his career-best stolen-base total with his fourth pilfer of the campaign after not having logged a single steal attempt over his previous three major league seasons. Rooker has also now reached safely in nine straight games and 10 consecutive starts, producing a .314/.368/.743 slash line in the 38 plate appearances he's recorded over the latter span.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Launches 27th homer Wednesday

    Rooker went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday. Rooker was one of the few bright spots for Oakland's bats, hitting the second of two Athletics homers off George Kirby when he launched a 410-foot shot with Seth Brown aboard in the sixth. The rookie has now left the yard in four of his last seven games, a welcome power surge that's helped him push his season-long OPS over the .800 mark (.801).

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Not starting Tuesday

    Rooker isn't in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday against Seattle. Rooker has slashed .214/.313/.548 with four homers since the start of September, and he'll take a seat for the start of Tuesday's contest. Tyler Soderstrom will fill in as Oakland's DH while Tony Kemp, Esteury Ruiz and Seth Brown start in the outfield.
