Oakland Athletics SS Adam Rosales is left without a regular spot following the acquisition of 2B Alberto Callaspo from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, July 30. Callaspo will be the team's everyday second baseman, 3B Josh Donaldson is entrenched at the hot corner and SS Jed Lowrie will occasionally be spelled by 2B Eric Sogard, who can play shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Rosales in AL-only fantasy play for some reason, drop him. He isn't expected to see enough at-bats to warrant much in the way of fantasy consideration.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SS Erick Aybar said Tuesday, July 9, that 1B Albert Pujols has helped him calm his approach at the plate. Aybar said a few weeks ago, Pujols noticed Aybar was overanxious at the plate. He was diving at balls, torquing his body too aggressively and not letting pitches travel deep enough to slap them the other way like he normally does. "At the start, I was swinging too crazy," Aybar said. "Now I feel better because I'm more calm. I'm seeing pitches better." Pujols has also worked with 3B Alberto Callaspo in the same fashion.
