Athletics facing roster crunch when Craig Gentry returns


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"There's a chance we could see him the latter part of the Seattle series," manager Bob Melvin said. "We don't want to bring him back to early. But he certainly is an integral part to our bullpen, and we'd like to have him back as soon as we can."

Gentry remains at the team's minor-league facility rehabbing his injured back. "Everything's going well," Melvin said. "He's getting his at-bats every day, he's playing in the field, he's going back and forth between DH and playing in the field. Really, [he] may be on the same timetable, or close to it, as Cook."
