Athletics | Eric Sogard could begin season in minors

Oakland Athletics 2B Eric Sogard could begin the 2015 season at Triple-A Nashville in order to receive regular playing time. He finished last year as the team's primary second baseman but could find himself on the bench as a reserve infielder or in the minors due to the acquisitions of 2B Ben Zobrist and SS Yunel Escobar.

Athletics | Jed Lowrie expects to go on DL

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:10:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (finger) said he expects to be placed on the 15-day disabled list, because he is not helping the team. Lowrie said he has tried to take part in baseball activities, but the finger is affecting his play.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto Callaspo and Eric Sogard could see time at shortstop if Lowrie is placed on the disabled list. Neither player has much value outside of AL-only leagues.

Athletics | Adam Rosales without a spot

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 21:42:55 -0700

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.

Athletics | Grant Green on his way up

Sun, 07 Jul 2013 22:24:41 -0700

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.
