    Head is legit power hitter

    MLB.com reports A's prospect Miles Head might not pass the eye test, but there's no denying he can play the game. Head, who was acquired from the Red Sox in December 2011, hit .333 with 23 homers, 32 doubles and 84 RBI in 124 games between Class A and Double-A last season. "He's one of those Barney Rubble guys who certainly doesn't look the part of a major league player," A's special advisor Grady Fuson said of Head, who is 6-0, 215 pounds. "But talent-wise, this guy can jump the ball out of any ballpark. He loves to play, he's got the same demeanor every day. He's learning the little technical fundamental things at third base -- footwork, throwing slots. But he's got a knack for slapping leather to a baseball, whether he's at third or first. He's a legit offensive type of guy."
