Description: Oakland second baseman Eric Sogard is a career .462 hitter (6-for-13) with three extra-base hits against Houston starter Brad Peacock.
Insight: Sogard doesn't provide much offense to the A's lineup, so it probably isn't worth rolling the dice with his guy on Wednesday. He is hitting .218 with one home run and 17 RBI this year in 90 games. If you need a spot start from a free agent second baseman, Sogard is your guy for Wednesday.

Description: Oakland second baseman Eric Sogard is a career .700 hitter (7-for-10) against Rangers starter Jerome Williams.
Insight: This might be the only time in his career that fantasy owners should pay attention to the career .231 hitter with six home runs on his five-year resume.

Description: Oakland second baseman Eric Sogard is batting .500 this spring (15-for-30) and could force his way into the A's starting lineup.
Insight: Should that happen, Jed Lowrie would likely move over to shortstop leaving Hiroyuki Nakajima without a starting gig. Nothing is in stone yet, but fantasy owners might want to pay attention as we close in on Opening Day.
