News: Callaspo is in the lineup as the Athletics' designated hitter for Monday's series opener against the Astros. Impact: Callaspo was activated from the 15-day DL prior to Sunday's game, but wasn't used in the Athletics' victory. The uncertain injury status of Coco Crisp should allow Callaspo to maintain a spot in the lineup the next couple of days while the Athletics shuffle some players around, but his best long-term opportunity for playing time might be at second base, where neither Eric Sogard nor Nick Punto did much to distinguish themselves offensively while Callaspo was out.(RotoWire, )

News: Callaspo (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day DL on Sunday. Impact: Callaspo has been out of commission since July 11 due to a hamstring strain, but will rejoin the Athletics for their Sunday night contest. Prior to his injury, Callaspo had been playing first base, third base, and DH, and he'll likely serve a similar role moving forward. Nate Freiman was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento to clear up a roster spot.(RotoWire, )

News: Callaspo (hamstring) is expected to play in rehab game with High-A Stockton on Saturday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. Impact: A Sunday return to the big club is still in play, but it's always possible the team could leave him on assignment through the weekend if he doesn't fare well Saturday. Callaspo has compiled just a .234/.308/.309 batting line in 318 plate appearances this season, with three homers, 31 RBI and 29 runs scored.(RotoWire, )

News: A's manager Bob Melvin said Callaspo (hamstring) could return as soon as Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: A hamstring injury forced Callaspo to the DL just before the All-Star break, but it sounds like he has a chance to return Sunday, when first eligible. The 31-year-old has posted just a .617 OPS through 83 games and really isn't worthy of much fantasy consideration in any format, but the A's seem intent on playing him regularly.(RotoWire, )

News: Callaspo (hamstring) is getting close to going on a rehab assignment, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: He will need a couple rehab starts before returning to the A's, according to manager Bob Melvin. Upon his return he will help bolster the depth at second base and third base, but he won't play enough, and likely won't hit enough to be worth a look in most fantasy leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Callaspo (hamstring) expects to return from the disabled list a few days after the 15-day minimum, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Callaspo is about one week away from his eligibility date, but he's still a bit limited in his baseball-related activities. The Athletics haven't ruled out a rehab assignment, which could delay his return a few days longer. In the meantime, Oakland will get by with the trio of Nick Punto, Eric Sogard and Andy Parrino at second base.(RotoWire, )
