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.

Fuld's CT scan on his jaw was negative,

reports Joe Stiglich of CSN California.

Fuld is considered day-to-day and seems to have dodged a bullet after getting hit with the ball while running to first.

Fuld went to the hospital for a CT scan after being hit in the jaw while running the bases on Friday,

Fuld will platoon in center field with Craig Gentry, reports Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Fuld and Gentry are now set to patrol center field with Coco Crisp making the move to left field. As a left-handed hitter, Fuld is on the strong side of the platoon, but will need to improve upon his .210 average from 2014 to stick in the lineup agaisnt all righties. If he can hit enough to stay in the platoon, his steals could have some value in deeper leagues as he swiped eight bags in only 157 at-bats in 2014.

Fuld agreed to a one-year contract with the A's on Friday, avoiding arbitration, reports Jane Lee of MLB.com.

Fuld will likely platoon with Craig Gentry and get at-bats when the A's face right-handed starters. After hitting .274 in 164 at-bats with the Twins, he only hit .209 after being traded to the A's at the trade deadline. Fuld does bring some speed (21 steals in 2014) and a lot of defense to the table which will enable him to keep earning playing time.

Fuld is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Fuld has started five of the last six games for Oakland, but he'll head to the bench Tuesday with left-hander James Paxton toeing the rubber for Seattle. Fuld hit just .244/.295/.341 in August, and while he figures to continue seeing starts against right-handers, his opportunities may be scaled back a bit over the final month with Craig Gentry healthy.

Fuld (knee) is back in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

A knee contusion, the result of a collision with the outfield wall Sunday, kept Fuld out of the lineup for the first two games of the Houston series but he was able to come off the bench for a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday. Fuld will carry his .249/.338/.339 season batting line against right-handed pitching into Wednesday's contest against right-hander Brad Peacock, whom he's yet to face in his career.
