Craig Gentry is dealing with a back injury.
He's started only one of the Angels' last six games. Manager Mike Scioscia said placing Gentry on the disabled list remains a possibility. That would leave the Angels dangerously thin at left field, though Daniel Nava (knee) is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week. Rafael Ortega will continue to start in left field.
Jesse Hahn made a statement in his season debut Saturday, holding the Astros scoreless over 6 2/3 innings in the Athletics' 2-0 win.
Hahn gave up just three hits and walked two in the game. He began the season at Triple-A Nashville after struggling in spring, but he posted a 2.04 ERA in four starts in the minors prior to being recalled. With Chris Bassitt on the disabled list, Hahn will keep his rotation spot for at least the next few weeks. If he pitches well, his stay in the A's rotation will very likely extend beyond Bassitt's return.
Tyler White's slump continued Saturday, finishing 0-for-3 in a loss to the Athletics.
White came out of the gate like gangbusters, but his ridiculous start has helped mask the fact that he hasn't done much since the second week of the season. In his last 13 games, White is 5-for-47 (.106) with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored with 14 strikeouts. The Cinderella story appears to have come to an unceremonious end.
Andrew Heaney (arm) has yet to resume throwing.
Heaney went for a second opinion on his strained flexor muscle but doctors didn't find anything new. He won't need surgery but there's still no timetable for his return. The left-hander hasn't pitched in a game since April 5.
Ryan Madson loaded the bases with one out but escaped the jam unscathed on Saturday, earning his eighth save of the season against the Astros.
Madson walked two of the first three batters he faced, and a single by Colby Rasmus loaded the bases with Evan Gattis stepping to the dish. Madson regrouped to get Gattis to ground into a double play, ending the game and preserving the Athletics' 2-0 win. The right-hander has been terrific this season, owning a 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 10/3 K/BB ratio over 12 2/3 innings.
Billy Burns hit a two-run single in the second inning to lead the A's past the Astros on Saturday.
The A's managed just five hits, but his single with the bases loaded ended up being enough for the home side. Burns has hit safely in 12 of his last 13 games to raise his line to .278/.321/.367. He's also doing his stolen base thing, racking up seven steals through the month of April.
Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Orioles.
He's not expected to play on Sunday either. The White Sox are off on Monday, which means the earliest we'd see him is Tuesday. Garcia tweaked his hamstring in Friday night's loss. "It’s a little tight," said manager Robin Ventura. "I don’t think it’s a DL situation there but he definitely did something going down the line there." Jerry Sands will DH and bat seventh Saturday with Garcia sidelined.
Chris Devenski allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the A's on Saturday.
Making a spot start, the right-hander gave up five hits and three walks while striking out four. He had been stellar coming out of the Astros' pen prior to Saturday's start, owning a 0.66 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 12/1 K/BB ratio over 13 2/3 relief innings. He'll return to being a crack member of the Astros bullpen.
