Andy Parrino 2B/SS OAK 3 Months
Athletics recalled INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento.
Parrino is much better with the glove than he is with the stick, as evidenced by his .210/.300/.302 line through 108 games at Triple-A this season. He'll provide depth and versatility on the bench for the A's as they drive towards the postseason.

The Athletics are expected to recall utility man Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
The A's are short-handed at the moment due to the injuries to Scott Sizemore (knee) and Josh Reddick (wrist), so Parrino will provide some bench depth. The 27-year-old batted .207/.316/.276 with one home run and six RBI in 55 games with the A's last season.

Athletics assistant general manager David Forst said new acquisition Andy Parrino is "definitely in the mix" for the starting job at shortstop.
Ultimately, the A's figure to either re-sign Stephen Drew or bring someone else in. But, as it stands right now, Parrino would compete with Adam Rosales, Eric Sogard and perhaps others. Parrino is good with the glove but has batted just .200/.319/.256 over 79 big league games.

Athletics acquired INF/OF Andy Parrino from the Padres in the Tyson Ross deal.
Parrino has batted .200/.319/.256 over 79 games the past two years for the Padres. He's pretty slick with the glove, though, and is versatile, having played 26 games at shortstop, 15 at second base, two at third base and one in right field in 2012. He should be able to win a bench job with the A's.

Andy Parrino claimed one of the Padres' three final Opening Day roster spots on Tuesday.
With five homers and a .212/.278/.455 batting line, Parrino did enough to earn the utility infielder role. Micah Owings and Jeremy Hermida landed the other two roster spots. Owings had a very disappointing spring, and will look to build on last season's decent rebound effort. Hermida hit a solid .313 with four home runs, but his primary role will be as a backup outfielder while Mark Kotsay is on the mend.

Andy Parrino launched his second homer in as many games on Wednesday, finishing 3-for-5 against the White Sox.
Parrino has received a long look this spring. After a sluggish period that saw his batting average drop to .184, he now sports a slightly more respectable .228/.302/.456 triple slash. With four long balls and a couple of steals, don't be surprised if he meets the Padres' utility infielder needs on Opening Day.
