Oakland Athletics OF Michael Taylor is receiving instruction from former 1B Scott Hatteberg on how to play first base this spring. "I think it would be foolish for me in this point of my career to not be able to go over there if something were to happen," Taylor said. "It doesn't necessarily mean that I'm going to be full time there, but being able to move around can only help me, because if an opportunity opens up here or anywhere else, I at least can say I have some experience there and I can help there." 1B Brandon Moss is set to be the starter at first base this year after going through the same thing that Taylor is going through. 1B Daric Barton is also around, but Taylor's right-handed stick may prove valuable.
