Description: Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in Wednesdays starting lineup.

Description: Athletics SS Marcus Semien is not in Thursday's starting lineup.
Insight: No injury, just routine rest. Semien has been a nice surprise, batting .283 with three homers, 12 RBI and 15 runs scored. Eric Sogard will start.

Description: Athletics second baseman Marcus Semien drove in three more runs, going 2-for-2, on Wednesday.
Insight: Semien is now 5-for-5 with a walk and six RBI in two games this spring. Maybe the Jeff Samardzija trade wasn't so lopsided. Semien will be the Athletics starting shortstop, and fantasy owners should consider taking him as a late-round flier.

Description: Athletics second baseman Marcus Semien hit a pair of home runs with four RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Giants in Spring Training.
Insight: Semien was 3-for-3 in the game, hitting the first home run off World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner. His only blemish on the day was a caught stealing. All fantasy owners should keep an eye on Semien, who has an unique blend of speed and power.?

Description: White Sox shortstop Marcus Semien went 1-for-3 with a solo home run to give the White Sox a 1-0 victory over the Athletics on Thursday.
Insight: Semien hit his homer off Scott Kazmir in the sixth inning. Looking at both starting lineups, Semien was probably the last guess to account for the only run of the afternoon. Semien is batting .218 with four home runs and 19 RBI this season.

Description: The White Sox have sent infielder Marcus Semien down to Triple-A Charlotte.
Insight: Semien's fate was probably sealed as soon as Conor Gillaspie came off the disabled list. He played sparingly in May and only managed five hits over his final 24 at bats. The 23-year-old should get another shot at the majors later this season.
4/20/2014 7:42:00 PM
Description: Chicago second baseman Marcus Semien had his second four-hit game of the season on Sunday.
Insight: Semien's bases loaded triple in the sixth inning was the first of his career. Eight of his 18 hits this season have come over two games.

Description: White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien ripped four hits Tuesday in a victory over Colorado.
Insight: It's the seventh multi-hit game of Semien's career and his first of the four-hit variety. The jury's still out on Semien's fantasy potential but at least he's hanging in there with a .273 average in the month of April (9-for-33).
