Wednesday, the A's placed Scott Sizemore on the disabled list and announced he has re-torn his left ACL and will miss the rest of the season. He missed all of 2012 after tearing his ACL in spring training.
Jed Lowrie came to the A's without a full-time position. All the full-time spots in the infield were already spoken for. But halfway thought the spring, the A's have big concerns about both shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima and second baseman Scott Sizemore. Lowrie could take either job (but he can't take both).
