#Athletics reinstate Rosales from DL, option Kouzmanoff and De Los Santos to Triple-A and call up Sizemore
Rosales gave the A's solid service last season in a utlity role, playing all four infield positions and hitting decently. He'll essentially fill the role previously held by LaRoche.
The optioning of Kouzmanoff, while perhaps not a huge surprise, certainly wouldn't have been anticipated a month or two ago. Just last season, Kouzmanoff led the A's with 16 home runs and tied for the team lead with 71 RBI. But like many of his teammates, Kouzmanoff's slumped badly this spring, and with Sizemore recently coming to the A's in a trade with the Tigers and hitting well in Class AAA -- as usual -- this move must have seemed irresistible to management, so desperate to somehow goose the hitting attack.
