Melvin: Coco Crisp moving to LF; Gentry, Fuld to man CF for A's


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Athletics manager Bob Melvin announced Wednesday the team has decided to move Coco Crisp from center to left field in an attempt to keep him healthy and off the disabled list. Melvin added Sam Fuld and Craig Gentry will platoon in center field for Oakland.

“By doing this we have a better chance of keeping Coco healthy,’’ Melvin said. “We’ve talked about it and he had some questions. But he’s been taking balls in left field this spring.’’

Crisp has not played more than 136 games in a season since joining Oakland in 2010. Crisp, who played in 126 games in 2014, missed time last season after collisions with outfield walls led to neck pain. Crisp said in early February he was going to try to tone down his "aggressive game" in order to avoid more injuries.


Five Athletics competing to bat second in lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Manager Bob Melvin indicated that five players are competing to bat second in the Athletics lineup this season, the Bay Area News Group reports.

Shortstop Ben Zobrist, second baseman Marcus Semien, third baseman Brett Lawrie and outfielders Sam Fuld and Craig Gentry are all in the mix for the second spot in the lineup.

The Athletics opened last season with third baseman Josh Donaldson slotted second, but Donaldson has since been traded to Toronto.


Athletics' Craig Gentry has normal offseason after injury-filled year


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Athletics outfielder Craig Gentry said Tuesday he was able to have a normal offseason after dealing with multiple injuries during the 2014 season, MLB.com reports.

"I was able to do everything that I normally do with no issues," he said. "Last year was frustrating. It's tough to get into the groove of things and get in a rhythm when you're playing and then you're not playing. Trying to find your way on a new team and then you're hurt all the time, that was definitely the toughest part. Hopefully this year will be better."

Gentry showed up to camp last spring injured after hurting his back on the drive from his offseason home in Dallas. He then broke his hand on a bunt attempt in midseason and suffered a concussion in September that prevented the outfielder from appearing on the team's postseason roster. He was cleared to return at the start of October but the team was unable to make it past the AL Wild Card Game.

Gentry delivered his worst season as a semiregular in 2014 while battling the various injuries, hitting .254/.319/.289 with no home runs and 20 stolen bases in 232 at-bats. He's expected to split time with Sam Fuld in left field this season.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Sam Fuld to play through knee injury


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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. 


Athletics re-acquire Sam Fuld for Tommy Milone


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) The Twins have traded outfielder Sam Fuld to the Athletics in exchange for pitcher Tommy Milone Thursday, according to FOXSports.com.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Twins outfielder Sam Fuld went into the All-Star break on quite a run offensively. He has hit safely in 12 of 13 July games, which is good enough for a .450 average, .540 on-base percentage, .550 slugging percentage and 1.090 OPS in that span.

Fuld has one double, one home run, six RBI, seven runs, nine walks and four stolen bases in July as well. His batting average has improved from .213 to .269 in his last 13 games.


Sam Fuld homers, steals two bases in three-hit game Tuesday

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2014) Twins outfielder Sam Fuld could begin his minor-league rehab assignment this weekend, as he has been symptom-free in his recovery from a concussion this week.

Fuld has been out since May 8 as a result of this concussion, but is progressing well enough to begin game action in the next few days. There still isn't an exact timetable for his return to the majors, as his extended time off will require a sizeable rehab assignment.

"Not coming off a concussion," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Not fair to him at all. He needs to go see live pitching. He needs to go down and run around because we can't simulate games. Plus he's probably not ready for major league pitching."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
