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.

Fuld will get some at-bats in the leadoff spot while Coco Crisp is on the DL,

reports Jimmy Durkin of the San Jose Mercury News.

Fuld was slated to platoon with Craig Gentry and hit at the bottom of the order, but now will get some at-bats in the leadoff spot. He will still likely sit against all lefties. Fuld struggled in 2014, hitting only .239 over 351 at-bats, but could be a source of steals in deeper leagues while Crisp is out.

Fuld (jaw) may return to the lineup on Tuesday,

reports Joe Stiglich of CSN California.

Fuld had been waiting for a protective guard to arrive, but since the swelling has gone down, he might play without it on Tuesday. By all accounts, Fuld should be fine for the start of the season.
