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, )

News: Callaspo (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday. Impact: Callaspo sustained a strained right hamstring during Friday's game, necessitating a stint on the DL. He mans a spot in the lineup everyday, but the utilityman will likely be replaced by a committee rather than one player. As a corresponding move, the Athletics called up Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento.(RotoWire, )
