Love Vladdy, but at this point he's not going to be an everyday bat, at most he'll take Lind's ABs against lefties and be a bench option the rest of the time. Probably looking at Fransisco's spot since he's pretty redundant on our roster.

He signed with Oakland and will be back in a few weeks once they've played their 50th game
To me it feels like the process to move along from Adam Lind as the starter at first is underway.
With Davis on the roster it doesn't make a lot of sense to have Francisco sitting there. Might as well use that roster spot with a guy with some power potential off the bench, who can also take over at DH when a left hander is pitching.
Wow, I thought AA would be the last guy to go after someone like Vlad.
Why? AA is all about asset management. And this move at this juncture carries the best possible price in terms of assets: nothing.
