Stephen Piscotty stayed hot with two hits Wednesday in Oakland’s marathon win over Chicago.

Piscotty contributed singles in the second and eighth inning. He scored in both instances with both runs coming on sac flies. The 27-year-old has exploded during his eight-game hitting streak, batting .419 with a homer, four doubles and six RBI over that span.

Stephen Piscotty ended up 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, a run scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-2 win against the White Sox.

Piscotty started off a little slow in his new surroundings, sitting at just .194 (7-for-36) with one extra-base hit and five RBI on April 8. He has hit safely in seven straight since then, including four multi-hit games, going 11-for-25 (.440) with three doubles, a homer and six RBI. The buy-low window has slammed shut in a hurry.

Stephen Piscotty finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI in Saturday's 10-8 loss in Seattle.

Piscotty has posted back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season and he has hit safely in a season-best four outings. After a slow start with his new club he is starting to settle in and look a little more comfortable at the plate. Saturday's game represented his second multi-RBI of the campaign, too. He remains a nice buy-low candidate, but that window might slam shut soon if he continues to do what he has against the M's pitching staff so far this weekend.
Apr 15 - 3:15 AM

Stephen Piscotty finished hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Tuesday against the Rangers and he had misadventures on defense, too.

Piscotty misplayed two balls and had miscommunication on another. "I'm getting a little bit used to the dimensions, but that's not an excuse because we play in away parks all the time. Dimensions are different everywhere," Piscotty said. It has been a slow go for Piscotty moving over to the AL, but he'll come around. He is a nice buy-low candidate if you can find a panicky fantasy owner of Piscotty.

Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI as the Athletics routed the White Sox in Cactus League action on Sunday.

Piscotty also drew a walk in this one, reaching base safely three times in his four plate appearances. His run-scoring single plated Jed Lowrie to cap off a six-run uprising in the fourth inning. He's enjoying a terrific spring, hitting .303 with a pair of homers and four RBI.
Mar 18 - 10:11 PM

Stephen Piscotty hit his second home run of the spring in the Athletics' Cactus League loss to the Giants on Monday.

It was a second-inning solo shot off Giants starter Chris Stratton. Piscotty also singled in the game, finishing 2-for-2. The 27-year-old outfielder is a pretty good bounceback candidate for 2018 after struggling in his final season with St. Louis.
Mar 12 - 7:11 PM

Stephen Piscotty launched his first home run as a member of the Athletics in a losing effort against the Padres on Saturday afternoon.

The two-run blast, a no-doubter to center field, came off of Padres' starter Jordan Lyles in the second inning. It was Piscotty's lone hit in three at-bats on the afternoon, raising his spring average to an even .200.
Mar 3 - 8:02 PM

Athletics acquired OF Stephen Piscotty from the Cardinals for SS Yairo Munoz and 2B Max Schrock.

The framework of the trade was agreed to on Wednesday night and then officially announced Thursday after Piscotty passed his physical. The 26-year-old outfielder struggled with injuries throughout 2017 and his mother was diagnosed with ALS in the middle of the summer. He heads home to the Bay Area as a strong bounceback candidate for 2018. St. Louis signed Piscotty to a relatively team-friendly six-year, $33.5 million contract extension last April after watching him put up an .815 OPS with 29 home runs and 124 RBI over his first 216 major league games between 2015-2016.

A's infield prospects Yairo Munoz and Max Schrock would head to the Cardinals in the pending Stephen Piscotty trade, per Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle was first to float those two names. Official announcement of this trade is pending a physical and that could take another day or so given that Piscotty dealt with multiple injuries in 2017. Munoz, 22, batted .300/.330/.464 with 13 home runs and 22 stolen bases in 112 games this past season between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Nashville. He's played all over the field, but most of his defensive innings have come at shortstop. Schrock, a 23-year-old second baseman, put up an impressive .321/.379/.422 batting line in 106 games at the Double-A level in 2017.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Athletics have reached an agreement to acquire outfielder Stephen Piscotty from the Cardinals.

The Cardinals are expected to receive two minor leaguers in return. Piscotty signed a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension with the Cardinals last April after a promising beginning to his major league career, but he took a step back this past season while dealing with injuries and an ALS diagnosis for his mother Gretchen. Piscotty is a Bay Area native and Stanford graduate, so hopefully getting closer to home will help him in general.

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the A's are edging closer to acquiring outfielder Stephen Piscotty from the Cardinals.

St. Louis has a deal in place with the Marlins for Marcell Ozuna, so Piscotty is suddenly expendable. Slusser hears that a trade between the Cardinals and Athletics could be completed before the end of the Winter Meetings on Thursday, with A's infield prospect Yairo Munoz possibly changing organizations. Piscotty posted an .815 OPS with 29 home runs and 124 RBI over his first 216 major league games between 2015-2016 before struggling mightily in 2017. Injuries and family issues played a part. He signed a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension with the Cardinals in April.

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the A's are focused on acquiring Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty.

St. Louis nearly traded the 26-year-old outfielder to Oakland over the summer as part of a package for starting pitcher Sonny Gray, but Gray of course ultimately went to the Yankees. Piscotty put up a promising .815 OPS with 29 home runs and 124 RBI over his first 216 major league games between 2015-2016 before injuries, family issues, and general ineffectiveness derailed him in 2017. He signed a six-year, $33.5 million contract extension with the Cardinals in April -- a deal that can potentially run through 2023.

Stephen Piscotty went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer to lead the Cardinals to a 3-1 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

Piscotty hit his third homer in 15 games since returning from Triple-A on Aug. 20. It looked like his playing time might be limited when Randal Grichuk was heating up at the end of the month, but now that Tommy Pham is hurt, there hasn't been a crunch in the Cardinals outfield these last couple of days.

Stephen Piscotty went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and three runs scored as the Cardinals beat the Giants 11-6 on Friday.

Piscotty's homer came as part of a six-run ninth inning for the Cardinals. It was his second homer -- and it gave him just his second and third RBI -- since he returned from Triple-A on Aug. 1. The big game will help his case for playing time, but with Randal Grichuk, who also homered tonight, performing so well, Piscotty probably still won't play more than half of the time.
