Jed Lowrie is putting in a bid to become the opening day second baseman. A double and a HR.
Jemile is out with a sore shoulder right now. Sizemore is struggling a bit.
It appears that Hiro has been holding his own thus far.
Originally posted by DaDDieO:The two stars of spring training have been outfielders Michael Choice and Shane Petersen. Both will likely start in Sacramento with Michael Taylor (who tore up his pinky finger while throwing away a piece of gum in the A's dugout SMH. He hasn't played in a week)
Barring injury to our big league starters, I'm not sure if any of those guys makes it up to the the bigs til Sept call-ups.
"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.
