The Oakland Athletics might be able to get something for OF Michael Taylor, who is out of minor league options, if he doesn't make the opening day roster. At this point, the A's likely have OF Sam Fuld ahead of Taylor. Fuld is hitting .304 with an OPS of .925 this spring.

Washington Nationals manager Matt Williams plans to use OF Nate McLouth in right field and the leadoff spot Friday, Feb. 28, in the first Grapefruit League spring game against the New York Mets with 2B Danny Espinosa in the two-hole. 3B Ryan Zimmerman will bat third, 1B Adam LaRoche will bat cleanup and SS Ian Desmond will bat fifth. C Wilson Ramos will bat sixth with OF Tyler Moore serving as the designated hitter, OF Scott Hairston batting eighth and playing left field, and OF Michael Taylor batting last and playing in center field.

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld profiles as the team's fourth or fifth outfielder, and manager Bob Melvin calls Fuld a "pest." The team already has four with OFs Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp, Craig Gentry and Josh Reddick, and likely won't carry another if they want to keep six infielders and three catchers. If an injury opens up a spot, Fuld might be in a heated competition with fellow Stanford alum OF Michael Taylor, who is out of options.

Oakland Athletics OF Chris B. Young (quadriceps) will play for Triple-A Sacramento Thursday, May 16, and is likely to come off the disabled list Friday, May 17. The team will decide to send C Luke Montz down or designate 1B Daric Barton for assignment to make room for Young on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor was sent down to the minors today, so Young figures to platoon in the outfield with Seth Smith, as he was doing before. Young has power, but he won't do you any favors in the batting average category. This makes him an asset in cavernous mixed formats with deep outfield setups.

Oakland Athletics OFs Coco Crisp (hamstring) and Chris B. Young (quadriceps) are close to a return, but Young felt something in his quadriceps during a rehab game Monday, May 13. Crisp had a great day of running, and he could return before Young Wednesday, May 15. Young will play in another game Tuesday, May 14, and he could be rested through the end of the week.
Fantasy Tip: Michael Taylor's playing time will come to an end when Crisp and Young return. If Crisp is out there on your waiver wire, add him to your team now. Young figures to platoon in right field when he's back with Seth Smith. Both Young and Smith are worth roster spots in cavernous mixed formats.
