what happens once he comes back? last I read before the season he was expected to be the A's starting SS.
I noticed this write up from rotoworld.
Hiroyuki Nakajima (hamstring) still needs to show he can run the bases before he's cleared to begin a rehab assignment.
"If he runs the bases this weekend, then maybe we're closer with him as well," Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Monday. "You have good days and bad days, and there are days he hasn't felt great." Nakajima will be used in a backup role once he's healthy.
I swear I hate rotoworld sometimes and their OPINIONS. not facts, opinions, and it really sucks that they are used on the write up for yahoo.
now maybe Nakajima isn't given the starting SS once returning, but I can't imagine he can't be better than the other competition.
who would be competition for Nakajima? Lowrie is currently at SS, with Eric Sogord at 2B. Scott Sizemore is out for the season, and Jemile Weeks is in the minors. Lowrie could move to 2B if/when they decide to go with Nakajima at SS.
