MARCUS SEMIEN RUMORS

Marcus Semien Is a Shortstop Now

At a lazy spring pre-game meeting with Bob Melvin a few weeks back, he mentioned off-hand that Marcus Semien wasn’t going to play every day. For half a second, it seemed we had a bit of a scoop on our hands, an emerging platoon at shortstop for the Athletics. But then, that was worth a […]

Oakland A’s: Marcus Semien off to an impressive start this spring

Oakland A’s Welcome the 2015 Season with a Big Win

The A’s  went on to beat the reigning champions, the San Fransisco Giants, with an impressive box score of 9-4. While many Giant’s Fans are relenting that these games do not mean much, this was a strong and important message that Oakland came out with. Not only do the A’s...

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. ...

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 […]

Is Marcus Semien Taking Over Second Base?

Chicago White Sox Baseball — Marcus Semien has created a lot of buzz this spring, and yesterday he created even more by hitting a 3-run bomb (video above) against the Mariners. It is looking more and more that Gordon Beckham will not be ready by Opening Day which may have opened the door for Semien. Based on the lineups we have seen the past few days (including today), it looks...

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...
