Eric Sogard has elected free agency.

It was either that or accept an assignment to Triple-A Nashville. Sogard missed all of 2016 with a knee injury. The 30-year-old hit .239 with eight homers, 105 RBI and 29 steals during his six years in Oakland.

Athletics sent INF Eric Sogard outright to Triple-A Nashville.

Sogard was already considered a non-tender candidate this winter, but now he's off the 40-man roster. The veteran infielder underwent a patellar tendon debridement procedure on his left knee in late April and didn't end up playing a game in the majors this season.

A's manager Bob Melvin said he's no longer optimistic Eric Sogard (knee) will play this year.

There hasn't been a major setback; Sogard is simply running out of time. The infielder opened the 2016 regular season on the 15-day disabled list with a neck problem and then injured his left knee on a mid-April minor league rehab assignment. That knee injury would eventually require surgery -- a patellar tendon debridement. Sogard will be a non-tender candidate this winter.

Eric Sogard (knee) will begin hitting soft tosses next week.

Sogard is working his way back from knee surgery after suffering a right patellar injury in April. The clock is ticking but Sogard is hoping to make it back in time for the end of the regular season. Sogard has yet to log an at-bat at the major league level this year.

Athletics transferred INF Eric Sogard from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Eric Sogard underwent a patellar tendon debridement procedure on his left knee on Wednesday.

Sogard's surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews. The intent of the procedure was to remove bone spurs in the left knee as well as shave a pointed patella tendon. There is no ligament damage in the knee, though, which should help fast-track his recovery. The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser cited a similar surgery that Ben Zobrist underwent last April. He recovered by the end of May. Should Sogard be facing a comparable timetable -- one has not been announced yet -- he could return in late May or early June.

Eric Sogard (back) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Stockton on Monday.

He's expected to move the rehab assignment up to Triple-A Nashville in a couple days. Sogard should be ready for activation soon, but there may not be a spot for him on the big league roster.

Eric Sogard (neck) could begin a minor league rehab assignment as soon as this weekend.

Sogard was forced to begin the season on the disabled list with a neck strain, but he has improved to the point where he could take some swings against Henderson Alvarez on Wednesday. The Athletics have options for their infield, so it will be interesting to see what happens once he's back to full health.

Athletics placed 2B Eric Sogard on the 15-day disabled list with a neck injury.

A neck injury has kept him sidelined since March 27. Sogard will back up Jed Lowrie at second base when he returns, though it's unclear when that will be. He hit .250 in 32 at-bats this spring before getting hurt.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Friday that Eric Sogard is currently battling a neck issue which could require a trip to the disabled list to start the season.

Sogard was expected to make the A's Opening Day roster in a reserve infielder role, but that is now in doubt. The club should have an update on his status and provide more clarity on the situation over the weekend.
