Athletics | Alberto Callaspo to platoon at 1B

Tue, 25 Mar 2014 13:53:32 -0700

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.

Athletics | Skipper says Alberto Callaspo will play some 1B

Sat, 08 Feb 2014 20:32:30 -0800

Oakland Athletics 3B Alberto Callaspo will be used at first base at times during the upcoming season, manager Bob Melvin said Saturday, Feb. 8.

Fantasy Tip: General manager Billy Beane already mentioned this earlier in the offseason. The team is not expected to add much before or during the spring, so this team is what it is. Callaspo would benefit slightly in AL-only fantasy leagues for the added eligibility.
