Change Team:

2017 RECAP

Record: 75 - 87

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Pitching provided the A’s highlights. Sonny Gray proved that he is the real deal striking out 183 over 219 innings with a sweet 3.08 ERA. Scott Kazmir continued his improbable comeback winning 15 games while posting a 3.55 ERA. Sean Doolittle proved that southpaws can close, saving 22 games while mowing down 89 batters in just 62.7 innings.

What Has Changed?

Pretty much everything has changed. New arrivals include Ike Davis, Billy Butler, Ben Zobrist, Marcus Semien, Brett Lawrie, Jesse Hahn, Sean Nolin and Tyler Clippard, who will likely close with the shoulder injury to Doolittle. Gone are Josh Donaldson, Brandon Moss, Jeff Samardzija, and Jon Lester just to name a few. Oh, and Yunel Escobar has already come and gone.

What to Expect:

Expect the A’s to have trouble scoring. Billy Butler will be overdrafted in many leagues. Ike Davis will not put up huge power numbers in Oakland and his average rarely helps. Ben Zobrist is on the downside and Coco Crisp is further down than that. The picture is brighter on the pitching side as the rotation is deep and will be fortified in mid-season when A.J. Griffin and Jarrod Parker return from Tommy John Surgery.

This Year’s Surprise:

Jesse Hahn will prove doubters wrong and show that his big time performance most of the summer in San Diego was real. In 2014, Hahn posted a 3.07 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 73 innings in the show after 40 stellar minor league innings. With a K-rate in the bigs close to one per inning, a GB/FB rate over two and a pitchers’ park to call home, Hahn will be on many a fantasy title team this summer.
