Joyce (hamstring) may be available to pinch-hit Sunday against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Joyce wouldn't be able to play beyond a pinch-hit appearance. Because of this, the A's will likely keep Joyce out of the game to avoid aggravating his strained hamstring. Joyce hit .243/.335/.473 with 25 home runs and 68 RBI over 141 games this season.

Joyce suffered a strained left hamstring during Saturday's game, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injury will sideline Joyce for Sunday's season finale, but this shouldn't impact his offseason routine. Joyce quietly hit 25 homers and drove in 68 runs while serving in a platoon role in the Oakland outfield this season -- useful numbers in most settings. He's under contract with the A's for one more year.

Joyce is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Joyce has not started against a left-hander all month, so it comes as little surprise that he will be held out Friday against southpaw Martin Perez. Mark Canha will cover right field for the A's.

Joyce is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Joyce has totaled just 66 at-bats against left-handed starters all year, so it comes as little surprise that he is sitting out Tuesday against Tigers southpaw Chad Bell. Mark Canha will take Joyce's place in the lineup.

Joyce went 3-for-6 with a run in Monday's 8-3 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Joyce now has four multi-hit efforts in 11 September games in which he's registered at least one at-bat. He's also blasted four homers during the month, helping lead to a .333/.415/.667 line that represents what is by far his best stretch of hitting this season. Despite a slow start to his first Athletics campaign, Joyce has rebounded to post a personal best in homers (24) and is just two doubles short of the career-high 32 he smacked with the Rays back in 2011.

Joyce went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer Friday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Joyce left in the yard for the 24th time this year to extend the Athletics lead to four runs in the second inning of a road victory. Despite a low .241 batting average, the slugger has hit four homers this month, and he slugging .479 on the campaign, which is his biggest benefit for fantasy owners.
