  • Athletics' Brett Harris: Window for playing time closes

    Harris is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

    Harris had started at third base in all but one of the Athletics' ensuing 14 games following his promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas on July 2, but his time as a regular in the Oakland lineup looks to be over. Abraham Toro (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list and will immediately reclaim starting duties at third base in Sunday's series finale against the Angels while Harris heads to the bench. Harris saw time at the keystone with Las Vegas earlier this season, but he doesn't have a path to playing time at that position either while Zack Gelof is entrenched as the top option.

  • Athletics' Abraham Toro: Back from IL, starting Sunday

    Toro (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and will start at third base and bat sixth Sunday against the Angels.

    Toro landed on the shelf June 21 with a strained hamstring but is ready to rejoin the Athletics after going 5-for-12 with a homer during a four-game rehab assignment. The 27-year-old has a .260/.303/.386 slash line through 73 contests this year and should see regular action at third base for Oakland now that he's healthy.

  • Athletics' Jacob Wilson: Moves to injured list

    The Athletics placed Wilson on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a left hamstring strain.

    The 22-year-old was promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas and made his MLB debut in Friday's 13-3 win over the Angels, only to exit the game early after tweaking his hamstring while running the bases upon reaching on a single in his first at-bat. Although the severity of the hamstring strain is unclear since the results of Wilson's MRI have yet to be disclosed, he'll be sidelined for at least the next nine days. Abraham Toro was activated from the IL in a corresponding move, while Max Scheumann is likely to take back over as Oakland's primary shortstop during Wilson's absence.

  • Athletics' Abraham Toro: Logs full game at Triple-A

    Toro (hamstring) started and played a full game at third base for Triple-A Las Vegas in its loss to Salt Lake on Saturday, going 2-for-4 with a run.

    Toro led off and kept up the hot hitting he'd flashed while putting in three rehab appearances with the ACL Athletics over the All-Star break. The ability of the 27-year-old to both play a full game and hit well versus a higher caliber of competition certainly bodes well for Toro's chances of activation from the IL following his second scheduled game with the Aviators on Sunday.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Rips three more hits Saturday

    Andujar went 3-for-4 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Angels on Saturday.

    Andujar put the bow on another impressive offensive performance by the Athletics with his seventh-inning single, which plated Max Schuemann with the final run of the game. Andujar has become an RBI machine of late, now having knocked in nine runs over the last 12 games while hitting a stellar .462 with men in scoring position over that span.

  • Athletics' Osvaldo Bido: Slated to start Tuesday

    The Athletics list Bido as their starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Astros in Oakland.

    Bido made a spot start with the Athletics in May and nine starts at Triple-A Las Vegas earlier this season, but he's worked exclusively out of the bullpen since getting called up to Oakland on June 21. After tossing a scoreless inning in Friday's 13-3 win over the Angels, Bido will be taking the hill Tuesday on three days' rest, though he needed just eight pitches to retire the side in the relief outing. Bido likely won't be asked to handle a typical starter's workload Tuesday, but he should be capable of giving the Athletics four or five innings if he's able to work efficiently.

  • Athletics' Darell Hernaiz: Kicks off rehab assignment Saturday

    Hernaiz (ankle) started at designated hitter in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Salt Lake on Saturday, going 1-for-3 with a double.

    The rookie infielder was logging his first game action since May 7 and put together an encouraging performance overall. Hernaiz figures to need an extensive rehab assignment given the amount of time he's been sidelined, and his next appearance with the Aviators may also see him play at least a partial game on defense.

  • Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Hit hard in Triple-A outing

    Blackburn (foot) started Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Salt Lake on Saturday night and was charged with the loss, allowing seven runs (five earned) on eight hits and two walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out one.

    Blackburn bumped up his rehab assignment to Triple-A after making his first two appearances with Single-A Stockton. The right-hander immediately got off on the wrong foot by allowing a leadoff homer to MLB veteran Jake Marisnick, who also got to Blackburn for an RBI double in the third inning. In all, Blackburn worked up to 49 pitches, but he located only 26 for strikes. Given he's been ineffective in two of his first three rehab appearances, Blackburn appears set to make at least a couple more starts with an affiliate in an effort to build up some confidence ahead of activation.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Three hits, three RBI in win

    Butler went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's 8-2 win over the Angels.

    Butler singled twice and laced a three-run double in the fourth inning for his third consecutive multi-hit effort. The outfielder has been ridiculous in July, tallying 10 extra-base hits and 22 RBI in 52 plate appearances. On the year, he is hitting .230 with nine homers, 30 RBI, 21 runs scored and six steals across 202 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Homers, stays hot in win

    Rooker went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 8-2 win over the Angels.

    Rooker crushed a three-run home run that traveled 445 feet in the first inning and then singled and scored in the fourth. He was intentionally walked in the seventh. The All-Star break didn't slow the 29-year-old down, and he's now logged eight multi-hit efforts in July with seven long balls and 18 RBI. On the season, he's hitting .294 with 22 homers, 65 RBI, 47 runs scored and five steals across 352 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Mitch Spence: Earns sixth win

    Spence (6-6) earned the win over the Angels on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 5.1 innings.

    Spence allowed a run in the third inning and was pulled at 85 pitches after yielding another in the sixth. He generated only six swinging strikes but limited hard contact and received plenty of early run support. On the season, the 26-year-old owns a 4.67 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 75:26 K:BB across 88.2 innings and lines up for a rematch with the Angels next week.

  • Athletics' Abraham Toro: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Toro (hamstring) had his rehab assignment shifted to Triple-A Las Vegas and will play at least two games with the Aviators before being re-evaluated, the Associated Press reports.

    Toro played three games for the ACL Athletics during the All-Star break and went 3-for-8 with a grand slam and two walks over that span. Now that the rest of the minor-league affiliates are back in action, the team wants to see how Toro does against a higher caliber of competition this weekend before evaluating him for possible activation from an IL stint that dates back to June 21.

  • Athletics' Esteury Ruiz: Pulled from rehab assignment

    Ruiz (wrist) was pulled off his rehab assignment Saturday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Ruiz continues to feel discomfort in his injured left wrist, and he will be re-evaluated by a doctor Monday. The outfielder has been out since late May with a strained left wrist and appeared to be on the cusp of an activation from the 10-day injured list, but his status moving forward is now uncertain.

  • Athletics' Jacob Wilson: Set for MRI

    Wilson (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Sunday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Wilson exited Friday's 13-3 victory over the Angels in the fourth inning with a strained hamstring and his status moving forward is currently up in the air. Once the team receives the results of Sunday's MRI, a decision will be made on if the 22-year-old will head to the injured list or not.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Resting Saturday

    Langeliers isn't in the Athletics' lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

    After belting a two-run homer during Friday's blowout victory, Langeliers will give way to Kyle McCann behind the plate.

  • Athletics' Jacob Wilson: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Wilson (hamstring) isn't in the Athletics' lineup for Saturday's game against the Angels.

    Wilson had to be removed early from Friday's game after straining his hamstring. It remains to be seen whether his injury will cause him to spend some time on the IL, but he'll officially miss at least one game while Max Schuemann starts at shortstop Saturday, batting ninth.

  • Athletics' Miguel Andujar: Starts second half strong

    Andujar went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in a win over the Angels on Friday.

    The Athletics picked up right where they left off before the All-Star break in terms of their blistering bats, and Andujar provided one of the team's four multi-hit efforts in the lopsided victory. The veteran contributed to the 13-run barrage with his sixth-inning double that plated Lawrence Butler, giving him eight RBI over his last 11 games alone.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Laces triple in lopsided win

    Butler went 2-for-4 with a two-run triple and a run in a win over the Angels on Friday.

    Butler ignited what would be a 13-run outburst for the Athletics on the night with his third-inning triple that plated Jacob Wilson (hamstring) and Max Schuemann to erase an early 1-0 deficit. The rookie essentially picked up where he left off to conclude the first half of the season, as he'd memorably launched three home runs and driven in six runs in Sunday's rout of the Phillies. Butler now boasts a 1.505 OPS across his last seven games overall, a sample in which seven of his 10 hits have gone for extra bases.
