Sam Fuld available Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Athletics outfielder Sam Fuld is available Tuesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Sam Fuld to play through knee injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Athletics outfielder Sam Fuld thinks he'll be able to play through knee soreness, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Despite that, Fuld is not in the team's starting lineup Monday. He banged his knee against the wall during Sunday's game, but doesn't believe the issue is serious. Fuld was able to do some running and swing a bat prior to Monday's game. His left knee is giving him some issues, but Fuld will try to play through it. Fuld is hitting .256/.340/.349 over 258 at-bats.


Trade does little for Sam Fuld's value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) The Athletics re-acquired outfielder Sam Fuld at the trade deadline Thursday, and will likely utilize him as part of a platoon in the outfield through the end of the season. He has been a solid contributor for the Twins since the A's cut him earlier in the season, but Fantasy owners have not yet taken notice. Should they?

Fuld is likely to play nearly every time a right-handed pitcher takes the mound against the A's, though he is hitting just .298 against them this season. He brings solid gap power but won't put the ball over the fence too often for you. And though he is a solid base stealer, Fuld isn't really a game-changer in that regard, with 13 in 60 games so far, but just eight in 119 games a year ago.

The A's might be smarter than everyone else in baseball, but it is unlikely they have unearthed a diamond here. Fuld is a solid player, but is unlikely to be much more than low-end AL-only Fantasy contributor in his new home.
