Athletics designated OF Alex Hassan for assignment.

It's been quite a ride for Hassan, who has bounced around to four different teams (not including and extra stop with the A's) since the offseason. It's possible he could be claimed off waivers again.
May 8 - 12:52 PM

Athletics claimed OF Alex Hassan off waivers from the Rangers; optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Hassan was designated for assignment by Texas earlier this week. The 27-year-old has been a Quad-A player the last few seasons, finally breaking into the majors with Boston in 2014. This is his second stint with Oakland after being DFA'd in early April. He'll serve as outfield depth.
May 2 - 4:15 PM

Rangers designated OF Alex Hassan for assignment.

Hassan was claimed off waivers from the A's on April 9 but lasted just three weeks in the Rangers' organization, batting .267/.343/.350 in 67 plate appearances at Triple-A Round Rock. The 27-year-old outfielder had a good 2014 at Triple-A Pawtucket and may draw interest on waivers.
Apr 29 - 4:25 PM

Rangers claimed OF Alex Hassan off waivers from the Athletics; optioned him to Triple-A Round Rock.

Hassan was designated for assignment by the A's on Wednesday to open up a roster spot for Cody Ross. Hassan has made only nine career plate appearances at the major league level, but he has pretty intriguing minor league numbers. The 27-year-old will act as organizational outfield depth for Texas in 2015.
Apr 9 - 1:54 PM

Athletics designated OF Alex Hassan for assignment.

The move opens a 40-man roster spot for veteran outfielder Cody Ross, who was released by the Diamondbacks on Saturday and officially signed by the A's on Wednesday. Hassan, 27, has logged just nine career plate appearances at the major league level. He will likely make it through waivers unclaimed.
Apr 8 - 5:07 PM

Athletics optioned OF Alex Hassan to Triple-A Nashville.

Hassan is healthy now after finally recovering from a hamstring injury, but he'll begin the season at Triple-A. A waiver claim last month, the 27-year-old made a nice impression with his eight hits in 18 at-bats this spring.
Mar 29 - 3:05 PM

Alex Hassan (hamstring) went 2-for-2 Saturday in his return to action.

Hassan had been on the shelf for over two weeks with a strained hamstring. He's not expected to make the Opening Day roster.
Mar 29 - 10:47 AM

Alex Hassan (hamstring) has been cleared for full baseball activities and is close to a return to game action.

He won't appear in a Cactus League contest on Saturday but should do so within the next couple of days. The 26-year-old still seems like a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder.
Mar 21 - 12:54 PM

Alex Hassan (hamstring) will take batting practice on Friday.

Hassan has been sidelined by a hamstring strain for a little over a week but has been progressing in his baseball activities the last few days. He seems on track to play in games soon.

Alex Hassan (hamstring) hit in the batting cage Wednesday morning.

Hassan, who was claimed off waivers from the Orioles late last month, suffered a hamstring strain last week. He's making progress, but he was unlikely to make the Opening Day roster even before the injury.
Mar 18 - 11:49 AM

Alex Hassan has been diagnosed with a hamstring strain.

The injury will put Hassan on the shelf for at least a week. The 26-year-old was already doubtful to win an Opening Day roster spot, and this pretty much ices it.
Mar 12 - 12:48 PM

Athletics claimed OF Alex Hassan off waivers from the Orioles.

It's the second time this offseason that they've claimed him. Hassan batted .287/.378/.426 with eight homers at Triple-A with the Red Sox last season and got a cup of coffee with the big club. He could compete for a bench job with Oakland.
Feb 27 - 3:37 PM

Orioles designated OF Alex Hassan for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Everth Cabrera on the 40-man roster. Hassan has already bounced from the Red Sox to the A's to the Orioles this offseason and he could soon be on the move again. The 26-year-old batted .287/.378/.426 in Triple-A last season.
