Athletics | Grant Green on his way up
The Oakland Athletics will promote 2B Grant Green from Class AAA Sacramento to start Monday, July 8. He's likely to platoon with Eric Sogard as the minority end against left-handed arms. A corresponding move for Green's call-up will be announced tomorrow.
Fantasy Tip: Green had a .318-11-49 line in 352 at-bats in Triple-A play this year. He's been playing the keystone all season after trying to stick as a shortstop and outfielder. An easy transition to the bigs would solve a major problem for this offense. Green could earn the right to everyday at-bats and aid deep-mixed owners in search of middle-infield help.
