|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien was given the night off on Friday against Tampa Bay, after an 0-for-4 performance that put an end to an eight-game hitting streak the previous day. With Semien out of the lineup, manager Bob Melvin gave newcomer Andy Parrino the start at shortstop.
Semien is hitting .338 (26 for 77) with three doubles, two triples, three homers and three RBI over his last 19 games played.
Seattle is an underdog (+126) at Tropicana Field, per VegasInsider.com.

Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien continues to struggle with his glove

|(5/17/15) Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien has become the main factor of Oakland's defensive issues this season. He added two more errors to his total, putting him at 13, the most in the league. It's something he's trying to fix, according to MLB.com.
"I don't focus on the number of errors," Semien said. "I focus on fixing them, making the play, making the next play. If I see the number of errors building up, it's not going to affect me. That's what shows up in the box score. That can't bother you as an infielder, as a defensive player."
Manager Bob Melvin is still looking for answers to his team's defensive miscues, racking up a total of 42 errors in 39 games.
"Just snowballing on us right now," Melvin said, "to where I think guys are thinking about it quite a bit -- don't make an error -- and we ended up doing it. We're not playing clean games at this point. They're ugly-looking games. It affects how you play. It affects your confidence."
A's SS Marcus Semien hits homer in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien hit his sixth home run of the season in Tuesday's 9-2 win over the Red Sox.
Semien finished the game 3 for 5 and also hit his first triple of the season. He hit a single and would have hit the cycle if he hit a double. Semien now has 15 RBI this season.
Semien now has three home runs in his past three games.
Athletics' Marcus Semien jumps to No. 2 spot on Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) With Billy Burns receiving the night off in favor of Sam Fuld, the Athletics moved Coco Crisp to the leadoff spot and Marcus Semien to the No. 2 hole Tuesday night against Boston, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Semien is hitting .295/.340/.810 with five home runs on the season.
Oakland is considered a home favorite (-120) against the Red Sox, per VegasInsider.com.
|2014 summary: White Sox manager Robin Ventura gave Marcus Semien an opportunity to start regularly at the beginning of the season as an injury fill-in for Gordon Beckham and Conor Gillaspie, but when both were back in the lineup, his playing time dried up. Semien failed to make the most of his chance, and he was demoted to Triple-A Charlotte on June 1 with a .218/.287/.327 slash line. It wasn't until rosters expanded in September that Semien got another chance, and once again, he split time between second and third base. The second time was the charm, as Semien compiled a .273/.333/.485 slash line over 74 plate appearances. Now Semien heads to Oakland, where he may be limited to serving as the Athletics' primary utility player.|
Playing time status: Semien appears to be blocked from regular play by Ben Zobrist, Yunel Escobar and Brett Lawrie, but if Escobar declines further, Lawrie continues his pattern of frequent injuries or Zobrist moves to the outfield, he could carve out some playing time for himself.
2015 outlook: The combination of power and strong plate discipline made Semien an enticing sleeper a year ago, but we didn't see as much of those qualities as we would have liked. The fact that he displayed more power and patience after the All-Star break, both at the major and minor league levels, is encouraging. Semien is worth a flier in AL-only leagues and is worth monitoring in deeper mixed leagues in the event that he gets to play with some regularity.
