Sogard had gotten five straight starts, but he will be replaced at second base by Ben Zobrist on Tuesday. He'll finish June with a .253 batting average and three steals in 23 total games.

Sogard will enter the lineup Sunday against the Royals for the fourth game in a row.

Sogard's glove usually lends itself to at-bats, but he's not been a total drain at the plate this season, batting .254 with a .298 on-base percentage. Still, the lack of pop or stolen-base ability in his profile won't afford him much fantasy value even if his versatility allows him to hold down a regular role.

Sogard is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels.

Sogard has started six of the last seven games at second base, but will sit Sunday in favor of Ben Zobrist. Moving Zobrist to the keystone will allow manager Bob Melvin to use an outfield composed of Sam Fuld (left), Billy Burns (center) and Josh Reddick (right).

Sogard was the catalyst of Sunday's win over the Angels, finishing 2-for-5 with three RBI, a run scored, a double and a walk.

The 29-year-old also induced a throwing error that resulted in a run as he made the most of his first start in four games. Sogard is part of a crowded middle infield corps that includes Ben Zobrist, Marcus Semien and Brett Lawrie, but could carve out a more regular role with more impactful performances like this.

Sogard is out of the lineup Saturday, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports.

Given the A's depth in the outfield, it looks like Ben Zobrist may start at second base fairly regularly going forward. Sogard was already kind of a fantasy afterthought, but this just further lowers his value.

Sogard is out of the lineup Friday against the Angels.

Sogard will skip his third straight game Friday, with the A's turning to Ben Zobrist once again. The move could mark a shift at the position, but Sogard's numbers have been decent this season.

Sogard is out of the lineup Thursday.

Ben Zobrist will man the keystone with Sam Fuld getting the start in left field Thursday. Sogard sees a lot of action with the A's, but he lacks fantasy appeal, as his best trait is his ability to play both middle infield positions.
