Hey Athletics Nation!

What Oakland A's player are you watching closely this spring?

The one I'm watching the closest is Jesse Hahn as he is someone I might consider drafting on one of my Fantasy Baseball teams.

Last season his strikeout per nine innings was 8.59. He also had a ground ball fly ball rate of 50.3 to 27.3 percent which is good. Heck, its perfect for the Coliseum, right?

Last season he walked almost four batters per nine innings and I see he's given up a few walks already this spring. Hopefully this is due to him working on things with pitching coach Curt Young and not a sign of things to come.

So, who are you watching this spring?

Alex made his weekly appearance on my show and we talked about the A's infielders fighting to make the team.....and who had the inside track. Alex joins me at the 10 minute mark or so......

I'll leave the player below or you can visit my site to download the show to your portable listening device.
