Player Outlook
Selected by the Athletics with the 26th overall pick in the 2020 MLB Draft out of a high school in California, Tyler Soderstrom climbed through the minor leagues far more quickly than most young catchers and made his major-league debut just after the 2023 All-Star break at age 21. How much he'll actually catch over the course of his big-league career is an unsettled debate, but he should retain eligibility at fantasy baseball's shallowest position for at least a little while longer as he also works in at first base and DH. Oakland loves his bat, and it's easy to see why. Across his 268 total games on the farm, the now 22-year-old registered an .856 OPS with 62 home runs and 216 RBI, and he absolutely feasted on right-handed pitching as a fast-rising lefty-swinging slugger.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Testing reveals further details

    Soderstrom suffered a stress reaction but not a fracture of his wrist according to recent tests, and he is currently donning a splint, MLB.com reports. Manager Mark Kotsay expressed relief at the test results, which he described as the best-case scenario for the promising rookie. Soderstrom is slated to wear the splint for up to 10 days before beginning a regimen of strengthening exercises as the next step in his recovery. Given the nature of the injury, he appears likely to require more than a minimum-length stay on the injured list.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Lands on injured list

    The Athletics placed Soderstrom on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left wrist bone bruise, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Soderstrom has gone just 4-for-22 with two RBI since the beginning of July, and his wrist injury will now hold him out of action until shortly after the All-Star break. Tyler Nevin and Armando Alvarez are likely to see action at first base while Soderstrom is out, and Seth Brown will come up from Triple-A Las Vegas to fill the open spot on the active roster.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Taking seat Wednesday

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. Tyler Nevin will draw the start at first base while Soderstrom heads to the bench for the second time in four games. The 22-year-old has fallen into a rut at the plate over his last 10 contests, going 6-for-37 (.162 average) with a home run and three RBI.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: On base three times in loss

    Soderstrom went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday. Soderstrom drove home JJ Bleday with his sixth-inning two-bagger for the Athletics' first run of the afternoon. The multi-hit effort was his first since June 21, and it snapped a 1-for-16 skid that had encompassed his previous four games. The double was also a welcome sight from another perspective, as Soderstrom counted a solo home run against the Diamondbacks on June 28 as his only hit greater than a single over the 11 games prior to Sunday.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Sitting versus southpaw

    Soderstrom isn't in the Athletics' lineup for Saturday's game against Baltimore. Left-hander Cade Povich will start on the mound for the O's, forcing the lefty-hitting Soderstrom into the dugout to begin Saturday's contest. In his place, Armando Alvarez will start at first base and bat fifth.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Out of Tuesday's lineup

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Angels. Soderstrom will head to the bench for the first time since June 5, and he posted a .279/.353/.557 slash line with five homers and 12 RBI during that 18-game stretch. Tyler Nevin is starting at first base against lefty Tyler Anderson on Tuesday.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Blasts homer Sunday

    Soderstrom went 4-for-8 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored as the Athletics were swept in Sunday's doubleheader versus the Twins. Soderstrom had three of his hits, including the homer, during the nightcap. He's hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games, going 13-for-38 (.342) in that span. The 22-year-old is up to a .250/.357/.464 slash line with five homers, 13 RBI, nine runs scored and three doubles over 31 contests. Soderstrom continues to see steady playing time at first base against right-handed pitchers, and he could push for closer to an everyday role if he continues to hit well.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Goes yard again

    Soderstrom went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Padres. Soderstrom has homered in back-to-back games, giving him three long balls this season. He's also hit safely in five of his last six contests, going 6-for-17 (.353) in that span. The 22-year-old had struggled to get anything going earlier in the season, but he's now at a .222/.347/.413 slash line with three homers, eight RBI and five runs scored over 75 plate appearances. He appears to have leapfrogged J.D. Davis for the starting role at first base, though Soderstrom would still have the advantage if it ultimately becomes a platoon situation.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Swats second homer

    Soderstrom went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to the Padres on Monday. Soderstrom gave Oakland an early lead with a solo homer in the second inning, but that was the only run the team ended up generating. The long ball was Soderstrom's first since his first game of the campaign, which took place May 8 against Texas. He's struggled to a .200 batting average with just six RBI over 71 plate appearances on the campaign, though his 14.1 percent walk rate has kept his OBP at a respectable .324.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Sitting second straight

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners. Soderstrom appeared to have taken hold of a regular role at first base against right-handed pitching, but he's sitting Wednesday for the second straight game versus a righty (Logan Gilbert). J.D. Davis will receive another start at first base and bat sixth.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Not starting Thursday

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Thursday's contest in Tampa Bay. Soderstrom has now started just two of the last eight games for the Athletics and is hitless across his last six contests, so the 22-year-old would seem to be in danger of a demotion. Aledmys Diaz will get the nod at first base for Oakland on Thursday.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Losing hold of regular role

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.

After slashing .211/.302/.368 since getting called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on May 8, Soderstrom appears to have lost hold of his regular role at first base.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Idle against lefty

    Soderstrom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros. With lefty Framber Valdez on the hill for Houston, the lefty-hitting Soderstrom will retreat to the bench. Soderstrom appears to have settled into the strong side of a platoon at first base with the right-handed-hitting J.D. Davis, who will get the starting nod Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Belts first 2024 homer

    Soderstrom went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader split with the Rangers. Getting the start at first base in the nightcap and batting eighth in his MLB season debut, Soderstrom got hold of a cutter by Jack Leiter and drove it over the fence in left-center field in the fourth inning. Soderstrom's power is legit -- he has two 20-homer campaigns in the minors, and he'd clubbed seven long balls in 27 games for Triple-A Las Vegas prior to his promotion Wednesday -- but Oakland prefers Shea Langeliers' defense behind the plate, and the team's 1B/DH situation is crowded. Playing time could be hard for Soderstrom to come by, even if he does stick around on the big-league roster.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Mixed bag thus far in Vegas

    Soderstrom owns a .148 average and .233 on-base percentage across his first 30 plate appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas, but he sports an impressive .519 slugging percentage in that sample as well. The final component of Soderstrom's slash line is the byproduct of having laced all four of his hits thus far for extra bases in the form of a double and three home runs. The early power is certainly encouraging, and Soderstrom's minuscule .063 BABIP over the small sample implies he's run into some bad luck when putting the ball in play early this minor-league season. Soderstrom's numbers should therefore be due for some improvement, considering this is the third consecutive year he'll have spent time at the Triple-A Level after logging 373 plate appearances with the Aviators over the last two minor-league campaigns.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Athletics optioned Soderstrom to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday. Soderstrom got off to a slow start in spring training, and the struggles continued. The catcher posted a .370 OPS across 34 plate appearances in 14 games. At Triple-A Las Vegas in 2023, the 22-year-old had a .833 OPS. This move points to Carlos Perez opening the season as the backup catcher for Oakland.
