Athletics expect call up Max Muncy to play mostly third base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) Athletics manager Bob Melvin likes what he's got in prospect Max Muncy, who played in his first game after being called up Saturday. Melvin expects to primarily use Muncy at third base with his infield battling a multitude of injuries, reports MLB.com.
"He can play a little first, he can play a little third, and with [Eric Sogard] being able to play all the positions, it's probably going to be mostly at third," said Melvin. "He's a grinder. He made an impression right away. You know he can hit, and he's coming in here swinging the bat well. We've always felt he was quite the hitter.
"Moved him over to third to make him a little bit more versatile, especially with [Matt] Olson in the system. We like what we saw this spring."
Muncy went 1 for 4 in the game with a single and a strikeout.

|(4/25/15) The Athletics placed Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury, the team announced on Saturday. Zobrist has battled the injury for several days and tested the knee at designated hitter on Friday night.
To replace Zobrist on the roster, the A's called up Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville. Muncy will make his Major League debut on Saturday, starting at third base and batting seventh for Oakland.
To make room for Muncy on the 40-man roster, the A's designated pitcher Eury De La Rosa for assignment.
Zobrist confirmed that he needs surgery on the knee and will be out four-to-six weeks.

Athletics' Melvin: Max Muncy 'a nice player'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/18/15) Athletics infield prospect Max Muncy is 8 for 24 with four doubles, one home run and five walks this spring after going 0 for 3 Wednesday, and manager Bob Melvin praised his work, calling him "a nice player," MLB.com reports.
"He's a little gamer," Melvin said. "He's made a couple errors, but watching him in pregame stuff and drills and so forth, he handles himself very well. He's a nice player."
Muncy hit .264/.385/.379 with seven home runs, 63 RBI and seven stolen bases in 435 at-bats with Double-A Midland last season.
"I feel like I'm seeing the ball great," Muncy said. "My biggest thing is I get myself in a good hitting position early, so timing isn't too big of an issue when you do that. I just see the ball out of the pitcher's hands is all I've been doing."
