Athletics | Alberto Callaspo to platoon at 1B

Oakland Athletics 2B Alberto Callaspo will serve as the team's first baseman when the team is facing a left-handed pitcher this year, according to manager Bob Melvin. 1Bs Brandon Moss and Daric Barton will share the position against righties, although Moss will likely see most of his at-bats as the designated hitter. Barton is considered to be the better defender. Callaspo has never played first base before this spring, and he'll also continue to serve as a backup at second and third base.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo isn't a bad option as a middle infielder in AL-only leagues because of his positional versatility.
