Fuld is back in the lineup Sunday against the Rangers.

Fuld will get the starting nod in left field, with Mark Canha moving to the DH spot and Billy Butler getting the day off. He typically resides in center, but manager Bob Melvin will elect to start Billy Burns there for the second straight game. Fuld, who is in the midst of a 1-for-25 slump, will look to shake that off against Yovani Gallardo and the Rangers.

Fuld is out of the lineup Saturday, Fox Sports Southwest's Anthony Andro reports.

Fresh from the minor leagues, Billy Burns will get the start in center field Saturday. It's not clear how long Burns will be up for, but the A's now have a pretty crowded outfield that could start to result in more off days for Fuld.

Fuld is out of the lineup Friday against the Astros.

With lefty Dallas Keuchel due up for Houston, Fuld will head to the bench as Craig Gentry takes over in center and Marcus Semien slots in atop the order. Fuld, who is batting .315/.377/.519 against right-handers so far, has logged just four at-bats against lefties. He and Gentry figure to continue in their strict center-field platoon.

Fuld is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fuld recorded just one hit over his last four games, so he will get a well-timed night off Tuesday, particularly with the A's facing left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago on Tuesday. Craig Gentry will get the start in center field in Fuld's place.

Fuld is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Fuld has started 10 of the first 12 games of the year for the Athletics, but will take a seat in favor of Craig Gentry. This is a typical move by manager Bob Melvin when a lefty is on the hill, and Sunday will be no different with southpaw Danny Duffy toeing the rubber for the Royals.

Fuld, who missed Saturday's game, continued his hot start to the season Tuesday, making four appearances at the plate and recording two hits, both doubles, and a run.

Fuld has played in eight games this season and has at least one hit in six of them, including two triples and four doubles. For the very young season, he's getting on base 42.9 percent of the time and is slugging .625.

Fuld is returning to the lineup Sunday.

Fuld was pulled from the starting lineup on Saturday when a left-handed pitcher was on the mound. He is in the lineup today because the A's are facing a right-handed pitcher.

Fuld is out of the lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

Fuld went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in Saturday's 12-0 victory over Seattle and now has three multi-hit efforts in the team's first four games to begin the season. With a lefty in J.A. Happ toeing the rubber for the Mariners on Saturday, manager Bob Melvin will turn to Craig Gentry to man center field and lead off, but Fuld should be in there whenever the A's face a right-hander.

Fuld led off on Friday night and had three hits and two runs scored.

Fuld has had a nice start to the season, hitting .412 through the A's first five games. Once Josh Reddick returns, Fuld should slide into a pretty strict platoon in center field with Craig Gentry.

Fuld is out of the lineup Wednesday.

With a lefty (Ross Detwiler) on the mound for Texas, the A's are going with a righy-heavy lineup. Following the Cody Ross signing Wednesday, Fuld will probably only play against right-handed pitchers, and possibly less often than that once Coco Crisp is healthy.
