Description: Diamondbacks backup shortstop Cliff Pennington will get the start on Saturday for Chris Owings. Owings is just getting the day off.
Insight: Lucky Pennington. His last start/at bat was May 11 and now he gets to face Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.

Description: Manager Bob Melvin would be wise not to start Cliff Pennington Saturday versus the Tigers. The Oakland infielder is hitless in 13 lifetime at bats against Detroit righthander Justin Verlander.
Insight: Verlander was unbeatable versus the A's during the regular season (2-0, 0.69 ERA) and he's never had much trouble against Pennington. Look for Verlander to get the better of him again in Game 1, assuming Pennington even plays on Saturday.

Description: Oakland second baseman Cliff Pennington has never been much of an offensive threat, but against Ervin Santana he's got a career .478 batting average (11-for-23).
Insight: Pennington (.218, 5 HRs, 22 RBIs, 15 SB) is batting .455 over the past two weeks. A hot hitter in a favorable matchup equals must start.

Description: Oakland shortstop Cliff Pennington has landed on the disabled list with left elbow tendinitis.
Insight: Pennington (.197, 3 HRs, 16 RBIs) hasn't done much even when he's been healthy. If you haven't dropped him from your fantasy team yet, now's the time.
 
7/3/2012 10:00:00 PM
Description: Athletics shortstop Cliff Pennington will take a seat Tuesday against the Red Sox.

6/10/2012 12:40:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Cliff Pennington has had a nice series against the Diamondbacks (5-9 with three doubles and an RBI) but he could be in for a tough game on Sunday. Pennington is a .176 career hitter against Arizona lefthander Joe Saunders.
Insight: Hopefully you have better options at shortstop than Pennington (.212, 1 HR, 11 RBIs in 56 games) but if he's all you've got, he probably won't help you very much on Sunday.
