Grant Green called up

Postby shin-soochoochoo » Sun Jul 07, 2013 10:48 pm

He's only SS in Yahoo currently but should get 2B eligibility soon. I guess it's time to drop Rutledge for Green, even if Green starts out only platooning....

KANSAS CITY -- Four years after being drafted by the A's as their first overall pick, infielder Grant Green is finally headed to the Majors.

According to a team source, Green, the team's No. 3 prospect, will join Oakland in Pittsburgh on Monday for the start of a three-game Interleague set with the Pirates.

The 25-year-old Green is hitting .318 with a .374 on-base percentage, next to 11 home runs, 25 doubles and 49 RBIs in 81 games with Triple-A Sacramento. His offense, though, has never been a concern for the A's so much as his defense, but having spent the majority of this season strictly at second base, Green is thought to have improved in that area.

It's at second base where Green is expected to make his debut, according to the official Twitter account of his high school, Anaheim's Canyon High: "Congratulations to Grant Green who just got called up and will start at 2nd base for Oakland tomorrow night!"

The corresponding move for Green is unknown, though the A's may potentially opt to designate Adam Rosales for assignment. Rosales has been a versatile piece for the A's since 2010, but he has struggled to consistently produce this season. He's hitting just .200, and he also committed a costly error in the eighth inning that led to Kansas City's game-winning run on Saturday.

Should Rosales be designated, the A's would have 10 days to trade, release or pass him through waivers to keep him in the system.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
