Athletics | Searching for a utility infielder

The Oakland Athletics are trying to identify someone to fill their utility infielder role, with IFs Steven Tolleson, Andy LaRoche and Eric Sogard expected to be the top candidates, according to Joe Stiglich of The Mercury News. Tolleson is considered the best all-around fielder, LaRoche has the most major league experience and Sogard is the only one of the three currently on the 40-man roster, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. The team would prefer that SS Grant Green begin the season in the minors, most likely at Double-A Midland.
