Athletics vs. Marlins: David DeJesus Returns To The Lineup

The Oakland Athletics sit waiting for the Tuesday rain to stop at the Oakland Coliseum but are ready to open their series with the Florida Marlins. The A’s will look to put together a solid homestand as the All Star Break approaches. After the A’s complete six games with Florida and Arizona, they play Seattle for three at home and four against Texas on the road. Given how tight the AL West has become this season, those seven games could allow the A’s to get right back into the thick of things. However, in the mean time they’ll need to take care of business in interleague play.

The A’s will once again roll with Jemile Weeks and Cliff Pennington at the top of the lineup. Coco Crisp remains in the three spot while Josh Willingham recovers from his Achilles injury and Hideki Matsui is back to the designated hitter role for now. The A’s are going with Ryan Sweeney in left field and David DeJesus in right field. DeJesus has been sitting out fairly frequently the last couple weeks but it sounds like he’ll get several starts this week against right handed pitching.
