Athletics' Marcus Semien: Handling full-time leadoff gig
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Semien will start at shortstop and serve as the Athletics' leadoff hitter Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Semien has been serving as the Athletics' primary table setter against left-handed pitching all season, and now it seems his hot start at the plate has allowed him to unseat Robbie Grossman as the leadoff man versus righties, too. He'll slot in atop the order for the Athletics' third consecutive matchup against a right-hander, with Oakland taking on Hector Velazquez in the series finale in Boston.

Athletics' Marcus Semien: Cranks three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Semien went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Rangers.

Semien took Kyle Dowdy deep in the second inning to record his fourth home run of the season. While his power production has been streaky -- he's slugging .505 but this was his first home run since Apr. 24 -- he has batted primarily in the top two spots in the Athletics' order and gotten on base at a .379 clip. That's been buoyed by a 13:12 K:BB, helping him rank among the American League leaders in runs scored with 21.

Athletics' Marcus Semien: Crosses plate twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Semien went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, a double and two runs in a loss to the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Semien just continues rolling along, bouncing back from a rare 0-for-3 performance Saturday to generate his sixth multi-hit effort over the last 11 games. The hot-hitting shortstop has provided well-balanced contributions in April, lacing six doubles and two home runs while also knocking in eight runs and drawing eight walks.

Athletics' Marcus Semien: No signs of slowing down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Semien went 2-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Blue Jays on Friday and now has five multi-hit efforts in his last nine games.

Semien is a career .251 hitter, even when factoring in his .325 average through 95 plate appearances thus far this season. Therefore, skepticism persists that he'll be able to keep up anything close to his current pace, but the shortstop isn't yet showing any signs of a downturn. A look at Semien's peripheral stats reveals that a combination of improved plate discipline and a corresponding spike in contact rate have led to his stellar numbers in the early going. Both Semien's 11.6 percent walk rate and 86.7 percent contact rate are easily career highs and will naturally be pivotal to Semien disproving the notion that his current numbers are simply outliers.

Athletics' Marcus Semien: Another multi-hit outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Semien went 3-for-5 with a two-run double and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.

Whether the career .251 hitter can keep it up over the long term is firmly up for debate, but Semien has undeniably enjoyed a torrid first three weeks-plus to open the season. The 28-year-old now owns a seven-game hitting streak, and he's reached safely in 11 consecutive games overall. His two RBI on Sunday also give him seven over the last five contests, and he already boasts nine extra-base hits (six doubles, three home runs) over his first 83 plate appearances of 2019.
