Khris Davis was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants due to a left shoulder contusion.
Davis ran into the wall during Tuesday's game, which might have been the cause for his late scratch on Wednesday. Coco Crisp shifts over to left from center, with Billy Burns earning the CF start in Crisp's now-vacated place. Davis should be considered day-to-day moving forward.
Khris Davis has been scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.
At this point, the A's have not offered a reason for Davis' absence. He homered on Tuesday, so whatever is bothering him appears to have cropped up very recently. Expect the team to pass along word of his exact ailment in due time.
Kelby Tomlinson (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment with Advanced-A San Jose this weekend.
Tomlinson will begin his rehab assignment serving as designated hitter. He sprained his left thumb in early June. While he will start his rehab assignment in San Jose, he expected to move up to Triple-A Sacramento for the final portion of it prior to rejoining the Giants.
Sergio Romo (elbow) will pitch in back-to-back games with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday and Friday.
Sergio is nearing a return from a strained flexor tendon suffered just a week into the season. Once he has pitched in back-to-back games, as will occur on Thursday and Friday, he should be ready to rejoin the major league club in short order.
Noah Syndergaard acknowledged that he is pitching with a bone spur in his right elbow.
Syndergaard had been vehement in his denial of a bone spur, but after multiple reports surfaced outing the injury, he admitted that it was a reality. But still, defiance, as the young ace referred to the bone spur as "pretty insignificant." "[I can] pitch through it with no pain. I'll be ready to go in five day," Syndergaard said on Wednesday. In his last start, the Nationals whacked him for a season-high five runs in three innings. It is admirable that Syndergaard wants to pitch through the injury -- and maybe he will make his next start, as he hopes -- but the Mets would be playing a dangerous game to approach Syndergaard's arm issue with anything other than caution.
