Oakland A’s acquisition rumors: Second base edition

Even though the Oakland A’s have made some major moves this offseason, their middle infield is still weak. With youngster Marcus Semien projected to be the everyday starting shortstop, second base will most likely be platooned by Eric Sogard and Andy Parrino.

Marcus Semien, the Next Matt Carpenter
