|Athletics facing roster crunch when Craig Gentry returns |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/8/14) The Athletics will face a roster crunch when outfielder Craig Gentry returns, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The team already has four outfielders, none of which are great candidates to be sent down. Both Coco Crisp and Yoenis Cespedes are sure bets to remain with the club. Sam Fuld is out of options, but the team wants to keep him around.
That could leave Josh Reddick as the odd man out. Reddick has been a regular with the club for a couple seasons now, but got off to a slow start and can still be optioned to the minors. Reddick understands the thought behind the move. "If that is what's best for the team, they have to do what they've got to do," Reddick said. "Obviously, I'm not doing the job right now."
It's unclear if the team will consider carrying five outfielders in order to make things work.
|Craig Gentry seemed like just a nifty little platoon player for the Rangers -- one who could get on base, run a bit and play solid defense. But the Athletics apparently decided he's something more than that, trading Michael Choice, the 10th overall pick in the 2010 draft, for him and right-handed pitcher Josh Lindblom this offseason. Looking at their roster, Gentry doesn't figure to play more than a platoon role for the Athletics either, but you better believe that role is secure. As he showed last year, he gets on base often enough to steal 20 bags even with just a part-time role, and if an injury were to give him a chance to play every day, he'd be a hot waiver claim in Rotisserie leagues. As it is, he's already worth drafting as a fourth or fifth outfielder in AL-only formats.
