Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie (foot) left the game Tuesday, May 21, against the Texas Rangers due to a right foot contusion.

Oakland Athletics SS Hiroyuki Nakajima (hamstring) has played second base during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento. His 20-day rehab assignment ends Wednesday, May 22, and a decision needs to be made whether he returns to Oakland or he is optioned to Sacramento. It appears Nakajima will be optioned to the minors, although Melvin said no decision has been made. "His position is shortstop, that's what it's been his whole career, but he's open to playing other positions, too," Melvin said. SS Jed Lowrie is entrenched at shortstop in Oakland.

Oakland Athletics SS Hiroyuki Nakajima (hamstring) went 1-for-5 with a run scored for Triple-A Sacramento Tuesday, May 14, and he's hitting .241 in seven rehab games.
Fantasy Tip: The A's haven't given any indication that Nakajima is close to being called up to the big leagues, and Jed Lowrie has been playing well at shortstop in Oakland. Nakajima has been playing some second base in the minors, meaning he's likely being groomed to be a utility infielder when he rejoins Oakland. That means he likely won't have much value past AL-only leagues.

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 16:29:20 -0700
Oakland Athletics INF Adam Rosales is at shortstop with INF Jed Lowrie at second base Friday, April 26. Rosales is more comfortable at shortstop.

Oakland Athletics SS Jed Lowrie doubled twice Thursday, April 4, against the Seattle Mariners. Lowrie has five extra-base hits in the past two games.

The Oakland Athletics are seriously considering sending SS Hiroyuki Nakajima to the minors to start the season. He's hitless in eight straight spring games and is batting only .150. Nakajima clearly hasn't been comfortable, and the team wants him in a groove before he plays in major league games that count. SS Jed Lowrie would likely start at shortstop if Nakajima is sent down. 2B Scott Sizemore is the leading candidate to win the second base job after playing well lately. INFs Eric Sogard and Adam Rosales remain in the mix as well at the keystone.
Fantasy Tip: Lowrie would have likely played enough to warrant consideration in deep enough mixed leagues as a middle infielder even with Nakajima on the roster. Now, it seems, he'll be the starter. Lowrie's power will probably take a hit with the move to Oakland, but you can't ignore the fact that he's getting the PT now.
