The Oakland A's have a couple of good young prospects in outfielder Nick Swisher and first baseman Dan Johnson. Whats the latest word on giving these guys a shot at winning a position?

Dan Johnson played LF last night, so maybe they are considering platooning him with Byrnes? Check Rotoworld.com for more info

This from roto:

Jeremy Brown homered, walked and was hit by a pitch in Saturday's AFL action.
Brown, a major disappointment in Double-A last season, is hitting .400/.543/.760 in 11 games for Phoenix. He'll need to keep showing power in Triple-A next year if he wants to again be viewed as a potential regular.

Brown wont be a factor this year but Swish will be, and Johnson has an outside shot to be a regular but I wouldn't bet on him being a fantasy contributor.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.
