Mike Trout (finger) will serve as the designated hitter again Monday against the Royals.

It will be his sixth straight start out of the DH spot as he nurses a sprained right index finger. He's hoping to return to the field soon. Chris Young will start in center field.
Jun 25 - 1:30 PM

Mike Moustakas is not in Monday's lineup against the Angels.

It sounds like a routine day of rest. Alcides Escobar is slated to make his first ever start at third base.
Jun 25 - 12:20 PM

Athletics purchased the contract of RHP Edwin Jackson from Triple-A Nashville.

Jackson is being called up to make the start Monday against the Tigers. The 34-year-old signed a minor league deal with Oakland earlier this month after opting out of his deal with the Nationals. He posted a 4.02 ERA over three starts in Triple-A. The A's will be the 13th team he's played for in his career.
Jun 25 - 11:48 AM

Athletics activated LHP Ryan Buchter from the 10-day disabled list.

Buchter ended up missing two months with a left shoulder strain. He returns to a 1.69 ERA over 10 2/3 innings.
Jun 25 - 11:45 AM

Gary Sanchez (groin) will be placed on the disabled list.

The Yankees have yet to make an official announcement, but Jon Morosi of MLB Network hears that Kyle Higashioka will replace Sanchez on the active roster. Sanchez left Sunday's game with a groin injury, but we should know more about the severity following MRI results.
Jun 25 - 11:26 AM

Athletics designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move. Hendriks has missed time this season with a groin injury while struggling with a 7.36 ERA over 13 appearances. He's still owed about half of his $1.9 million salary for this season, but he could draw some interest via waivers or trade. He still has one year of team control remaining, as well.

Mike Trout said Sunday that he will test his right finger by throwing in the next couple of days.

Trout has served as the DH for five straight games as he nurses a sprained right index finger. "They said to give it a week to see how it feels," said Trout, who is 3-for-15 (.200) with five walks and seven strikeouts during this stretch. "We’re just trying to calm it down." Trout feels strange as the designated hitter, but it sounds like things should be back to normal soon enough.
Jun 25 - 11:00 AM

Maikel Franco left Sunday's game against the Nationals due to lower back tightness.

He's fortunate things it wasn't worse, as Franco took a nasty fall slipping on the first base bag while legging out an infield single. He said after the game that he might be able to play Monday, so consider him day-to-day.
