Weeks sent down to AAA, even though he batted .370 in spring training
Sizemore remains in the 2b competition with Sogard
, and maybeJed Lowrie, even though Sizemore has batted .170 this spring
I don't get why they're being so tough on Weeks. I know it's only spring training but he's performed well this spring and they're giving guys like Rosales a better chance for the job than him.
Also Nakajima has played like poop, batting .150 this spring. Beat writers are saying Jed Lowrie might just be our every day SS instead.
And I really hope Rosales and Sogard aren't our 2bs. Both shouldn't be any more than backup infielders, if that.
"It was tough," manager Bob Melvin said of demoting Weeks. "He's had a good spring, certainly offensively more than defensively at this point, but he's worked very hard on his defense and will continue to work very hard on his defense. It was a difficult cut, but we have to cut our numbers down at some point."
Should the A's deem Sizemore unprepared for regular season games before they set their roster, there's a possibility that Rosales and Sogard could form a platoon at second base. And if the decision comes down to choosing just one of those two players, Rosales holds the edge because he's out of options.
