Fuld was removed from the 40-man roster to clear a spot for Craig Gentry.

A's non-roster invitee Sam Fuld went 2-for-3 against the Giants on Wednesday.
Fuld, trying to make the team as a reserve outfielder, opened up strong, singling twice. The Athletics picked him up on a minor league deal just three weeks ago, hoping that another low-risk gamble results in a big payoff. In the past, Fuld has been lackluster with the bat, providing more value with his defense and his baserunning.

Athletics signed OF Sam Fuld to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
Fuld will make $800,000 if he's on the majors league roster and could earn an additional $100,000 with incentives. The deal includes opt-outs in late March or on June 1. The 32-year-old batted just .199/.270/.267 over 200 plate appearances last season with the Rays, but his speed and defensive ability could come in handy in a reserve role.

Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports that free agent outfielder Sam Fuld remains open to returning to the Rays.
The 32-year-old had a very disappointing season in 2013, slashing a brutal .199/.270/.267 with two homers, 17 RBI and eight stolen bases. He remains a top flight defender though with plus speed, and would make a valuable depth signing on a minor league deal.
