News: Fuld is starting in center field and batting ninth in the order in Wednesday's lineup against Tampa Bay, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: It's Fuld's first start since he was claimed off wavers by the Twins from the A's. Fuld could get steady playing time in center field if Aaron Hicks continues to struggle at the plate.(RotoWire, )

News: The Twins have claimed outfielder Sam Fuld off waivers from Oakland. Impact: Fuld is not due to join Minnesota until its game Tuesday at Tampa Bay, leaving the club one player short for its series finale against the Royals on Sunday.(STATS, 2:40pm)

News: Fuld was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Impact: Unsurprisingly, the defensive-minded Fuld was quickly scooped up off waivers after being designated for assignment by the Athletics last Saturday. He'll give the Twins some needed depth and speed off the bench in light of the injuries to outfielders Josh Willingham and Oswald Arcia.(RotoWire, )

News: The Oakland Athletics have activated outfielder Craig Gentry from the 15-day disabled list and designated Sam Fuld for assignment to clear a roster spot. Impact: Fuld started the last four games in center field with Coco Crisp slowed by a sore wrist. Fuld had a solid opening homestand but was just 2 of 17 on the A's current road trip.(STATS, 6:19pm)
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: The A's designated Fuld for assignment Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of reports. Impact: In anticipation of Craig Gentry (back) coming off the DL, the A's went ahead and bumped Fuld, who hit .200/.273/.433 with two triples and a homer in seven games with the major league club. Fuld has speed and can play all three outfield positions, but if he goes unclaimed while on waivers, he'll likely head to Triple-A to bide his time.(RotoWire, )

News: Fuld hit a two-run dinger and also singled Thursday. Impact: Don't use him Friday since he's up against 'King Felix' Hernandez in what figures to be a mismatch. Fuld may want to come up with an injury to avoid this matchup.(STATS, 4:14pm)
Thu. Apr 10, 2014
News: Fuld went 2-for-5 with his first home run of the season and two RBI in a win over the Twins on Thursday. Impact: Fuld has been leading off with Coco Crisp sidelined with a wrist injury. Fuld's value to the A's is his ability to play all three outfield positions very well, so the home run was a pleasant surprise. It remains to be seen what the A's do with Fuld when Craig Gentry returns this weekend.(RotoWire, )
