Athletics | Chris Carter hopes to stick around

Oakland Athletics OF Chris Carter is hopeful of sticking around in his latest call-up. Manager Bob Melvin said Friday, June 29, that Carter plans to mostly platoon with OF Brandon Moss. Carter is expected to start against left-handed pitching, as Moss is just 3-for-17 against southpaws this season. "It's not like we're giving up on Moss," Melvin said. "We're just trying to maximize. And based on the fact we're getting several left-handers in a row, we felt this was the time to do it."
