Mon, 04 Feb 2013 15:13:14 -0800
The Oakland Athletics, with the acquisition of SS Jed Lowrie, have given themselves insurance in case SS Hiroyuki Nakajima doesn't cut it at shortstop this year. If Nakajima struggles, Lowrie can play shortstop and Nakajima can slide over to second base and 3B Scott Sizemore can battle for playing time at third base with 3B Josh Donaldson. If Nakajima works out at shortstop, Lowrie can play third base. INFs Andy Parrino, Eric Sogard and Adam Rosales shore up the depth further.
