Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin was hitting INF Alberto Callaspo balls at first base and Melvin said Callaspo is getting better at the position. Callaspo just needs to learn a few of the intricacies of the position, like bunt plays and cutoffs, but he is reportedly improving.

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.

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.
