GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Oakland Athletics’ outfield looked totally set to start the season, but with Craig Gentry’s back injury still keeping the offseason addition off the field, there is an increasing chance that non-roster player Sam Fuld will make the team. Fuld is hitting .308 this spring, and there is good reason for the A’s to find a roster spot for him: He is the only extra outfielder in camp with much major league experience, and he has an out in his deal if he isn’t on the Opening Day roster. In addition, Fuld can play all three outfield spots extremely well, with no drop-off at any of the positions, manager Bob Melvin said.
