Oakland Athletics OF Josh Reddick, who is hitting .103 with 13 strikeouts in 29 at-bats this year, is out of the lineup Thursday, April 10, with 1B Brandon Moss starting in right field. Manager Bob Melvin thinks Reddick might be pressing after having a nice spring.

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.
