Oakland Athletics Starting Lineup 12/2/20 Athletics Lineup

36-24, 1st in AL West

green-check Confirmed Conf

OAK 6 @ HOU 11

Final

Updated:

Oakland made the closest run at Houston last season. Any slip in the Astros' production could open the door for a very talented team. The Athletics' run differential puts them within the upper crust of playoff caliber teams. Any improvements at the plate or off the mound could push them to the top. Where they were most deficient compared to the elite four teams projected as 2020 World Champion frontrunners is in run production.

Oakland's 2019 run production was around a half a run per game behind the Yankees, Astros and Twins. Unfortunately, each of those teams play in the same league with the A's. However, this is a team with a strong chance to overcome that deficit. However, pitching is a point of concern. Any regression from last year would only negate any advancements Oakland makes on offense. The staff is headed by one of the Houston whistleblowers. That could target Oakland with their own tag.

Oakland Athletics FAQ

One of the more stacked lineups in the league is in Oakland. They have big-time power and plenty of bats one-through-nine. This is also a well-balanced lineup as they have strong bats from both sides of the plate. Marcus Semien is coming off of a breakout season and will leadoff again for the A's. Ramon Laureano is another one set to move up in the order, and as good as his defense is, we shouldn't forget about his offense. The big boppers are Matt Chapman, Khris Davis, and Matt Olson. All three sit in the heart of the order. Now the A's always had some platoon bats, and Tony Kemp might find his way into the lineup more against right-handers, while Mark Canha is a bat who handles lefties well.

Tony Kemp will be the one to play more every day second base for the Oakland A's. Kemp is a utility guy, as was Profar, so the A's replace him with another AL West member.
