INF Luke Hughes was claimed on waivers from the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. With 3B Josh
Donaldson batting .094, the A's will look to give Hughes, 27, a chance at that spot,
though he primarily has played second (40 games) and first (37 games) in the majors, with
16 games at third. The A's now have three Australians -- Hughes and RHPs Grant Balfour and
Rich Thompson -- on their roster.
