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)

News: The A's designated Fuld for assignment Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com 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)

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, )

News: Fuld went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base the A's leadoff hitter Wednesday night. Impact: While the A's outfield situation is crowded, injuries could open up more playing time for Fuld at some point this season. He could prove valuable in daily arrangements if he continues to hit leadoff in his limited starting opportunities.(RotoWire, )

News: Fuld will start in center field for the second half of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Indians, the A's official Twitter feed reports. Impact: This will be Fuld's first action of the season, and if you like small sample sizes, he's 3-for-5 lifetime against Indians pitcher Zach McAllister, although Fuld's career slash line of .234/.314/.330 is a much better measure of his ability from a fantasy perspective.(RotoWire, )
