Oakland Athletics SPs A.J. Griffin and Dan Straily might win the final two spots in the team's rotation, but they will have competition. SP Drew Pomeranz will be stretched out during spring training, and he is hopeful of winning a rotation spot. SP Tommy Milone is also hopeful of pushing his way into the mix and re-gaining his spot in the rotation. P Josh Lindblom is also expected to be under consideration, although he is likely to begin the season at Triple-A Sacramento.

The Texas Rangers acquired OF Michael Choice and INF Chris Bostick from the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for OF Craig Gentry and SP Josh Lindblom. Choice will be on the major league roster while Bostick has been assigned to Single-A Myrtle Beach. Choice was selected 10th overall in the 2010 draft by the Athletics and made his major league debut in September by going 5-for-18 (.278) in nine games. "Michael is a guy we followed in his amateur days literally down the block," general manager Jon Daniels said. "He has a chance to hit and hit for power, is athletic and can play all three outfield spots."

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Alexi Ogando (shoulder) is likely to be scratched from his next start Monday, Aug. 19, and he'll probably receive an injection this weekend while waiting for a second opinion on his MRI exam. SP Ross Wolf is a candidate to take the start out of the bullpen, and SP Josh Lindblom is another option in the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Wolf is the better option because he's already on the roster, but don't rule out Lindblom. Both options are only candidates to own in AL-only leagues if they enter the rotation.
