Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Kole Calhoun (ankle) is headed to the 15-day disabled list with an ankle injury. The team could look to acquire OF Sam Fuld from the Oakland Athletics to replace him.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if he suffered a sprained ankle, which could keep him out two or three weeks. If it's of the high-ankle variety, he could be out longer. If he is dropped in your league, and you have the space, pick him up. OF Collin Cowgill and OF/DH Raul Ibanez could be options to fill in during his absence. Neither are worth fantasy consideration in mixed leagues. OF Brennan Boesch could also be an option, but he's not exactly tearing it up at Triple-A Salt Lake.

Oakland Athletics OF Coco Crisp (wrist) is out of the lineup with left wrist inflammation Monday, April 7, and he received a cortisone shot Sunday, April 6. He could return as soon as Wednesday, April 9, with the team having an off day in between. Crisp relied on a cortisone shot to deal with the same injury last year, too. OF Sam Fuld received the start in Crisp's place Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Crisp's injury situation isn't serious. Check back on Wednesday, but expect to be putting him back into your lineups.

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld made the team as an extra outfielder. He can play all three spots extremely well and he understands the role. However, with OF Craig Gentry (back) eligible to come of the 15-day disabled list Saturday, April 5, Fuld's time with the big club might not be long.

The Oakland Athletics might be able to get something for OF Michael Taylor, who is out of minor league options, if he doesn't make the opening day roster. At this point, the A's likely have OF Sam Fuld ahead of Taylor. Fuld is hitting .304 with an OPS of .925 this spring.

Oakland Athletics OF Sam Fuld profiles as the team's fourth or fifth outfielder, and manager Bob Melvin calls Fuld a "pest." The team already has four with OFs Yoenis Cespedes, Coco Crisp, Craig Gentry and Josh Reddick, and likely won't carry another if they want to keep six infielders and three catchers. If an injury opens up a spot, Fuld might be in a heated competition with fellow Stanford alum OF Michael Taylor, who is out of options.
