The Athletics are expected to call up Grant Green from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.
Green, 25, is batting .318 /.374/.500 with 11 home runs and 49 RBI at the Triple-A level and is likely to be used in a platoon with Eric Sogard at second base. The San Francisco Chronicle expects the Athletics to designate Adam Rosales for assignment in a corresponding move.

Those type of numbers once he becomes elig at 2b, could be sweet.

same with yahoo, not sure where the OF elegibility is coming from. He should gain 2b eligibility pretty quick. Well, unless he gets platooned against lefties, in that case he's probably not worth owning in redrafts.

He may have been a high draft pick, but that doesn't mean he's a good player. He's 25 years old (nearly 26), had an OPS of .817 in his mostly neutral home park in the PCL while hitting for a more robust .926 OPS in the much more hitter friendly parks around the league. I'm not saying Grant Green is terrible or that he's not at least worth a consideration, but expectations should be kept in check. He has little base running speed, mild power, he plays in a tough park for RH hitters, and he may be platooning because the A's are smart in how they allocate their players' skills on the field.

I'm not bothering with him unless it's a really deep league. I might keep an eye on him just in case, but he doesn't seem to have any really good offensive skillsets based on stats and recent scouting reports.

I agree.  He isn't a must add type of prospect especially until we see if he is in a platoon or not.  If he starts hitting right away and forces the A's to play him everyday then he is worth the pick up

Actually the coliseum is quite a bit more friendly to right handed hitters than lefties.

Well, just listened to Susan Slusser on the radio and she clarified that twitter statement... Sogard is still the primary guy at 2nd (that tweet got my hopes up). He's just also the backup at SS with Lowrie obviously being the everyday guy.

Yeah I want to see some production before I drop someone.

This is looking like Green's best season in the minors but even that OPSing .874 in The PCL isn't anything to write home about.  He is coming off of a red hot June where he OPSed 1.055, but over his last 6 games in July the OPS is at .642, I expect him to struggle.

But if he starts off hot (and playing close to every day) he could be worth an add.

His issue in the minors has been defense and he was drafted as a SS out of USC 3-4 years ago, the A's then moved him to the OF but just this year (in spring I think) they moved him to 2B, so the fact he played OF the last couple years is probably why he has OF elig.  I have him as a minor leaguer I drafted the year he was drafted but I dont think much will come of him, if he is platooning that really stinks because he is on the lower- at bat side of the platoon since there are more RH pitchers than LH pitchers.
Seems everybody's jogging or heavy into health s?&t, don't tell me that I otta get rolfed, cause I love Cajun martinis and playing afternoon golf-JB from we are the people are parents warned us about

Why would the A's promote him and then not play him whatsoever?

0 for 9 with 5 Ks.  Struggling hard over this small sample size that encompasses start of his MLB career.  Maybe he can work out a few adjustments over the break... But I wouldn't count on it.  Look for a better option until this guy starts getting hot.

Tough to break into the majors when you have to face Liriano, Locke, and Lester.

They're trying to win the division. Not a lot of time to waste waiting to see if a guy will pan out. Sucks for Green but he needed to hit the ground running.

Crazy. These middle infield prospects have been getting on Beane's bad side lately. I'm sure Jemile wishes it were him.
