Jed Lowrie has homered in back-to-back games and is now batting .270/.329/.459 in 19 games in August, which only furthers Franklin Barreto's stay at Triple-A Nashville. Lowrie has been a won't-hurt-you fantasy middle infielder when healthy this year, but it's strange to see the Athletics still playing him regularly when they're already giving fairly regular playing time to youngsters Matt Chapman, Matt Olson, Chad Pinder and Boog Powell. Barreto has batted .286/.325/.481 with six homers and six steals in 36 games since the Triple-A All-Star break, but it seems like his time to help the A's will have to wait until after Nashville's season ends on Sept. 4. Even then, there's no promise he'll get the majority of time at second base over Lowrie.

Oakland corner infielder Ryon Healy has a pair of homers off a right-hander tonight, even though it's Ubaldo Jimenez, who isn't good. Healy has been a disappointment this season. A third of his homers entering today came versus lefties. He doesn't take walks, so doesn't get on base at a reasonable clip. This is a platoon guy. Healy isn't guaranteed playing time next year. Everyone's hitting homers. He needs to hit better right-handed pitching, and there's no evidence he will. Fantasy owners should use him against lefties ... and Ubaldo, basically.
