Angels Trade Alberto Callaspo To Athletics
Callaspo will take over at second base for the A’s. He’s played exclusively at third base this year for the Angels, but he has experience at second, having played 1,773 2/3 innings in 217 games at second in his career.
Callaspo, 30, entered Tuesday night hitting .253/.323/.348 with 13 doubles, five homers, 36 RBI and 32 runs.
Heading into Tuesday, A’s second basemen were collectively hitting .254/.320/.340 with 23 doubles and two homers. So the lines are a bit similar, but keep in mind that Jed Lowrie — now the everyday shortstop — hit well in 95 plate appearances, skewing things a bit.
