    Miami Marlins  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Could be. He’s certainly a strong candidate, as Bryan Hoch of MLB.com explains in his latest. Hoch notes that Johnson didn’t play third base in the bigs until last year, but he did play a little in the minors — and a lot of shortstop in the minors — so it’s not totally foreign ground. And,…

    When the Athletics signed Hiroyuki Nakajima to a two-year, $6.5 million contract over the winter, the assumption was that he would open the season as the team’s starting shortstop.

    Mar 25, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    Jemile Weeks

    Not so long ago Jemile Weeks looked like the A’s long-term answer at second base, but they briefly sent him to Triple-A after he struggled in the first half last season and now he’ll begin this year back in the minors. He hit .370 this spring, but the offseason trade for Jed Lowrie crowded the…

    Jemile Weeks entered last season as the Athletics’ starting second baseman, but a sophomore slump resulted in a demotion in August and being left off the postseason roster.

    A’s assistant general manager David Forst told the San Francisco Chronicle last week that Josh Donaldson would get the first shot at replacing Scott Sizemore (knee surgery) at third base.

  16. The Oakland A’s in 2014

    Billy Beane

    Though they’ve since made moves geared more for the short-term in re-signing Coco Crisp and trading for Seth Smith, the A’s pretty much gave up on 2012 when they shipped out pitchers Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey for youngsters. That’s still true even after they anted up $36 million for Yoenis Cespedes. Their eyes are…

    Feb 9, 2012, 6:12 PM EST

    Kurt Suzuki, Brandon McCarthy

    At least to the outside eye, it seems like the A’s have lacked a plan since they shipped off Matt Holliday after 93 games in 2009.

    Dave Bush

    Philadelphia added some veteran pitching depth by signing David Purcey and re-signing Dave Bush to minor-league contracts with invitations to spring training.

Philadelphia was the last of…
