Oakland A's MLN: Working MiLB Rosters

Oakland A's minor league spring training is in full swing. We check-in on minor league camp to see which affiliate players are currently playing for and which players are rehabbing injuries.

Oakland A's minor league spring training comes to a close on April 4. A's minor leaguers now have a week's worth of games in the books. While rosters for the A's four full-season affiliates are still constantly changing, it is instructive to see where players are currently slotted, as it gives some clue as to where they might be sent out at the end of camp. Generally speaking, players tend to play at or above the level they will eventually be assigned to at the start of the regular season. Occasionally, a player will move up a rung during spring training, but more often than not, players stay where they are or move down when a player is sent to minor league camp from the big league camp.
