A's trade Yunel Escobar to Nationals for Tyler Clippard

Apparently, the Oakland Athletics think Marcus Semien can be their starting shortstop after all. OK, that’s burying the lede a bit. Just days after acquiring Yunel Escobar from the Rays, general manager Billy Beane flipped the shortstop to the Nationals, reportedly in exchange for reliever Tyler Clippard. CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman was the first to report Escobar had been dealt...

Oakland A’s acquisition rumors: Second base edition

Even though the Oakland A’s have made some major moves this offseason, their middle infield is still weak. With youngster Marcus Semien projected to be the everyday starting shortstop, second base will most likely be platooned by Eric Sogard and Andy Parrino. Both are great defensemen but have trouble finding success at the plate. Sogard is a fan favorite and the better second...

Oakland A’s: Could Marcus Semien be the A’s everyday starting shortstop?

Marcus Semien The Oakland A’s were very active during the MLB winter meetings in San Diego this week and completed a trade with the Chicago White Sox to acquire infielders Marcus Semien and Rangel Ravelo, starting pitcher Chris Bassitt, and catcher Josh Phegley. The interesting pick up here is Semien. He is a infielder who can play second base, shortstop, and third base. It has...

The Improbability of a Marcus Semien

The image above represents a landmark moment in the author’s own life — and perhaps the life of anyone who derives pleasure from those instances in which the previously marginalized become less marginalized — insofar, I mean, as it demonstrates how, earlier today, Marcus Semien was the most searched-for player at FanGraphs. On the one […]

White Sox acquire Jeff Samardzija from A's

It has been a busy night for the Chicago White Sox (and fake reporters). Before people could even finish wagging their fingers at GM Rick Hahn for giving a massive four-year deal to closer David Robertson, Hahn completed a much rumored deal for the White Sox to acquire Jeff Samardzija from the Oakland Athletics for IF Marcus Semien, SP Chris Bassitt and an additional player. ...

Marcus Semien, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

Semien can provide cheap power and speed at both 2B and MI. Second base isn’t the feeblest of fantasy positions, but it certainly isn’t one where you can sit back and fall into a great player. In our 2014 Second Base Recap we looked back at the top 20 finishers at second from the past season. In that that 11-15 range, the guys who just missed regular startability in 10-team...

Where Marcus Semien’s Weakness Is Strongest

In each of the past two seasons, Chicago White Sox rookie infielder Marcus Semien has recorded among the most impressive walk and strikeout rates in the high minors. Insofar as it’s generally the case that walk and strikeout figures from the high minors translate somewhat predictably to the majors, a reasonable person — and also […]

Marcus Semien, the Next Matt Carpenter

Last year there was not one player I was making sure I had on my fantasy teams more than Matt Carpenter. Thankfully most of my leagues are keeper or dynasty leagues so I have Carpenter not only for last year’s magnificent season but at a super low price going forward. Most anyone who drafted Carpenter on their own or took my advice to draft him were extremely happy with getting...
