Oakland Athletics OFs Jonny Gomes and Sam Fuld could serve in a platoon in left field to replace OF Yoenis Cespedes, who was traded to the Boston Red Sox. Fuld also gives the A's a solid defensive outfielder.
Fantasy Tip: Gomes is clearly the better offensive weapon and fantasy option, but the move to Oakland in a pitcher friendly environment takes some of the intrigue out of his bat. In a platoon role with Fuld, he's purely AL-only material.
