Sam Fuld OF OAK 3 Months

Fuld was 2-for-5 with two stolen bases in Monday night's games against the Rays.

Fuld has been leading off for the A's since his trade to the team, but it appears Coco Crisp is close to being ready to play. When he is starting, Fuld has some decent value for runs and stolen bases, but if Crisp can get back to starting every day, Fuld will lose just about all of his value. If Crisp were to have a setback, Fuld would then be a nice add in deeper leagues for anyone needing steals to move up in the standings.

Athletics acquired OF Sam Fuld from the Twins for LHP Tommy Milone.

Fuld isn't much of a hitter, but he can play all around the outfield and that's useful to Oakland in the wake of Thursday's trade that sent Yoenis Cespedes to the Red Sox for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. Fuld is not fantasy-relevant.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are looking at numerous outfield options, including Sam Fuld of the Twins.

Fuld had a brief stint with the Athletics earlier this season and the club is looking for some outfield depth given the health of Coco Crisp (neck) and Craig Gentry (hand). The 32-year-old has played well since joining the Twins, but it likely wouldn't take much to acquire him.

Sam Fuld went 2-for-3 with two RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

After a fast start with the Twins, Fuld has slowed down after the All-Star break -- he was just 2-for-18 in the games leading up to Sunday. The stolen base was his 13th in 16 attempts this year. The 32-year-old is batting .261/.350/.367 as should continue to be in the outfield rotation for the Twins going forward.

Sam Fuld reached base three times for the third consecutive game on Thursday against Seattle.

He finished 1-for-2 with two walks, a steal and a run scored. Fuld doesn't want to leave Seattle. He went 5-for-10 (.500) with four walks, a homer, three steals, two RBI and three runs scored as the Twins took three of four. If you need a center fielder in your AL-only league, Fuld is probably your best free agent bet at the moment. He won't keep raking like this -- he's hit safely in nine of 10 -- but Fuld will draw the occasional walk and steal bases as long as he's in the lineup.

Sam Fuld reached base three times, drove in a run and scored another in Wednesday's 8-1 blowout at Seattle's expense.

He finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks. Fuld is 13-for-29 (.448) over his past nine games, and he's accrued a multi-hit game in four of his last seven. He doesn't have the tools to be a consistent contributor in even AL-only leagues, but he can be started by those without better options in that format as long as he's hot and receiving everyday at-bats.

Sam Fuld singled twice, homered and swiped two bases in Tuesday's 2-0 win against the Mariners.

Fuld failed to reel in Michael Saunders' round tripper on Monday, but he made up for it a day later, taking Chris Young over the right field fence in the fifth inning. Fuld finished 3-for-3 as a one-man wrecking crew. He's hit safely in seven of his last eight games to raise his batting average from .214 to .253. Fuld has enough speed to be usable in AL-only formats when he's starting -- tonight's steals were his ninth and 10th in 45 games -- but he doesn't make consistent contact, and rarely lifts the ball when he does. This was only his seventh career round-tripper.

"The team had an off-day today, but he'll continue tomorrow on his rehab. He's had no side effects. No headaches. No problems."
