Player Notes
Athletics signed OF Matt Joyce to a two-year, $11 million contract.

Advice: FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported the terms involved. Joyce, 32, batted .242/.403/.463 with 13 homers over 140 games with the Pirates this past season and owns an .803 OPS against right-handers in his career. The playing time figures to be there with Oakland, so he could make for a sneaky player in deeper fantasy leagues.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics have signed Matt Joyce to a two-year, $11 million contract, pending a physical.

Advice: Joyce had to settle for a minor league deal last winter, but he bounced back with the Pirates in 2016 by slugging 13 homers and an .866 OPS (131 OPS+) over 293 plate appearances in a part-time role. He figures to see regular at-bats against right-handed pitching with Oakland, likely in right field.
