Oakland Athletics Starting Lineup 12/10/18 Athletics Lineup

97-65, 2nd in AL West

green-check Confirmed Conf

OAK 2 @ NYY 7

Final

Updated:

The A’s always seem to bring a fun group of misfits and young prospects to the table, and that is the case again this season. If you are looking for power, Oakland has two of the bigger home run hitters in baseball. Khris Davis does not care what park he is hitting in, blasting 40+ home runs in back to back seasons. Matt Olson is a younger bat, but has shown huge power from the left side of the plate. Both always offer huge upside in daily and seasonal formats. Jed Lowrie got off to a blistering start to the season, and while he has cooled off, he still has some of the better numbers for a second baseman.

2018 Insights

It is still unclear if he will be dealt before the deadline, which would push Franklin Barreto into a starting role. The A’s signed Jonathan Lucroy in the offseason, and him and Josh Phegley don’t offer much offense behind the dish. The left side of the infield bring a few bats that hit lefties well. Marcus Semien will usually find the leadoff spot when a southpaws is on the mound, while Matt Chapman has plenty of power at third base. Chapman should be around for a while in Oakland, and carries some pop in the sixth spot. Stephen Piscotty came over from St. Louis this offseason, and has been heading up close to the break. Oakland has been known to platoon guys, and that is the case with Matt Joyce and Mark Canha. Joyce will see time against right-handers, while Canha has been hitting lefties well. Chad Pinder is another platoon name who will see the starting lineup when a lefty is on the hill. The A’s offense has been much better on the road this season, which you can expect when playing in such a big home ballpark.
