Oakland Athletics 3B Alberto Callaspo will be used at first base at times during the upcoming season, manager Bob Melvin said Saturday, Feb. 8.
Fantasy Tip: General manager Billy Beane already mentioned this earlier in the offseason. The team is not expected to add much before or during the spring, so this team is what it is. Callaspo would benefit slightly in AL-only fantasy leagues for the added eligibility.

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.

The Oakland Athletics acquired 3B Alberto Callaspo to play second base, as 3B Josh Donaldson has done a fine job as the everyday third baseman.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in AL-only leagues will like that, as he will gain 2B and MI eligibility shortly.
