The 31-year-old outfielder saw 50 at-bats with the A's in 2015, collecting just six hits. He figures to provide organizational outfield depth for the Angels. Wed, Dec 9, 2015 05:19:00 PM

Athletics designated OF Craig Gentry for assignment.

Gentry saw 50 at-bats with the A's in 2015. He did very little with them. The veteran outfielder slashed just .120/.196/.200 in that limited stretch of action. Still, Gentry will likely find a home elsewhere, as he's a proven bench option if nothing else.

Athletics recalled OF Craig Gentry from Triple-A Nashville.

Gentry will give the Athletics a little extra outfield depth for the stretch run. The 31-year-old is a weak .265/.338/.335 career hitter at the major league level.

Craig Gentry finished 0-for-3 in the A's loss to the Mariners on Saturday afternoon.

Gentry is now 0-for-14 to open the season. It's silly to raise concern on April 11, but he's hurting his chances of getting more looks in the leadoff spot.

Athletics and OF Craig Gentry avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.6 million contract.

Craig Gentry (concussion) is seen as a long shot to return this season.

Gentry progressed to tracking pitches on Thursday, but he's yet to swing a bat. It's conceivable that he could be ready eventually if the A's advance far in the postseason, but in all likelihood he's done until 2015.
