Oakland Athletics Designate Infielder For Assignment

The Oakland Athletics have designated Sheldon Neuse for assignment.

With this news, Neuse has been removed from Oakland's 40-man roster and will be hitting the waiver wire as a result of it. There certainly could be some interest in his services around the league. He is a very versatile player, as he can play third base, second base, and first base if needed. Therefore, he has the potential to be a decent utility player elsewhere.

In 89 games this season with the A's, he has four home runs, 26 RBIs, and a .214 batting average - all career-highs.
