The Atlanta Braves announced the signing of infielder Alberto Callaspo to a one-year deal worth $3 million on Monday.
Callaspo will serve as the Braves second baseman this season until prospect Jose Peraza is ready to take over the position. The move is a bit uninspiring given Callaspo’s lackluster .223/.290/.290 line with four homers and 39 RBI in 451 plate appearances last season...

The Oakland A’s seem as though they can do no wrong this season. They currently have the best record in baseball and are six games up in the American League West. They lead the MLB with the most run and the lowest ERA with 377 and 3.02 respectively. However, the Athletics do have one weakness and that is second base.
Even though the A’s have three players in...
With spring training just around the corner and most of the deals finally finished, the Oakland A’s will now start looking to solidify their roster for the upcoming season. When we start looking at the infield from 2013 to 2014, it does not seem as though there will be that much change since most the players that the A’s acquired in the offseason were pitchers. But with multiple...
In 2013, the Oakland A’s did not a permanent designated hitter and rotated this position between a few different players. However, none of these players really fit the role of DH such as David Ortiz does for the Red Sox.
