Fantasy Tip: Any time Lowrie sustains an injury, it can alarm his fantasy owners. This one sounds as if it's no big deal. Check back to be sure.

Oakland Athletics SS Adam Rosales is left without a regular spot following the acquisition of 2B Alberto Callaspo from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, July 30. Callaspo will be the team's everyday second baseman, 3B Josh Donaldson is entrenched at the hot corner and SS Jed Lowrie will occasionally be spelled by 2B Eric Sogard, who can play shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Rosales in AL-only fantasy play for some reason, drop him. He isn't expected to see enough at-bats to warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.
