Every Major League baseball player will tell you they want to start 162 games at the position of their choosing. As a result, it wasn't surprising when the newest A's infielder, Jed Lowrie, arrived at camp and made it clear what his preferences are.

"We'll see how it shakes out, obviously I want to play one position every day," Lowrie said. "That's what everybody wants to do and I've proven that I can do that."

The versatile 28-year-old infielder is expected to take on a super utility role with the A's this season. Last season he played all 93 of his games at shortstop. If he had his way, that's where he'd be. Instead, he'll play all over the infield. Lowrie, who attended Stanford, is apparently a quick study, because he is well versed at playing third base, second base, and first as well.
