Athletics recalled RHP Josh Lucas from Triple-A Nashville.

Acquired from the Cardinals just after Opening Day, Lucas had tossed four scoreless appearances for Nashville. He'll work in the middle of games.
Apr 20 - 4:50 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville.

Bassitt was off to a nice start at Nashville with a 0.69 ERA and 12/4 K/BB ratio over 13 innings. He'll work in middle relief.
Apr 20 - 4:48 PM

Athletics optioned LHP Daniel Coulombe to Triple-A Nashville.

Coulombe holds a 5.79 ERA across nine relief appearances with the A's this season. Oakland has added a couple fresh arms to their bullpen.
Apr 20 - 4:47 PM

Brewers optioned RHP Lou Trivino to Triple-A Nashville.

The A's will likely send up a fresh arm to replace Trivino, who logged three innings in Wednesday's marathon win over the White Sox. The right-hander pitched well during his brief stint in the majors and should be back up with Oakland later this year.
Apr 19 - 8:24 PM

Blake Treinen couldn’t finish the job on Wednesday, blowing his second save in Oakland’s extra-innings win over the White Sox.

Treinen retired the first two men he faced in the ninth before allowing a two-out double to Welington Castillo. Tim Anderson followed with a single to left field, scoring pinch-runner Tyler Saladino from second base. The right-hander redeemed himself somewhat by blanking Chicago over his next two frames before giving way to Lou Trivino in the 12th inning. Treinen is only 3-for-5 in save chances this year, though he hadn’t allowed an earned run prior to Wednesday.
Apr 18 - 9:51 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 9:49 PM

Jed Lowrie went deep for the sixth time Wednesday in Oakland’s 12-11 win over the White Sox.

Lowrie gave Oakland its first lead of the game by smashing a two-run homer to left field with two outs in the eighth inning. He also singled and scored in the fourth. The 34-year-old has been a godsend for fantasy owners in the early going. He’s hit .435 during his five-game hitting streak and now leads the majors in RBI with 21.
Apr 18 - 9:49 PM

Andrew Triggs was lit up for five hits and six runs over 1 1/3 innings Wednesday in Oakland’s win over the White Sox.

He walked two and didn’t strike anyone out. Most of the damage came in the second inning when the Pale Hose got to Triggs for five runs with four coming on a Yoan Moncada grand slam. Chicago starter Carson Fulmer wasn’t much better, allowing five hits and four runs in his lone inning of work. Wednesday’s meltdown did a number on Triggs’ ERA, raising it from 2.87 to 5.82.
Apr 18 - 9:47 PM

Matt Olson delivered a walk-off single Wednesday as the Athletics defeated the White Sox 12-11 in extra innings.

Olson had a great day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, two walks and three RBI. The A’s were down by as many as five early in the game but overcame that deficit to win in extras. Olson’s game-winner came against James Shields with the bases loaded and two outs in the 14th inning. The 24-year-old is hitting a respectable .274 with three homers this year, though he’s also struck out an astounding 32 times in only 73 at-bats.
Apr 18 - 9:45 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 2:20 AM

Jonathan Lucroy ended up 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI in Tuesday's 10-2 victory against the White Sox.

Lucroy and his buddies Mark Canha and Stephen Piscotty in the 7-8-9 spots combined to go 7-for-11 with three doubles, five runs scored and eight RBI. Not too shabby. After a sluggish start he is starting to come around, posting two three-hit games over the past five outings. He entered the game with just one RBI across his first 13 contests, so perhaps this will continue his warming trend.
Apr 18 - 2:15 AM

Jed Lowrie finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-2 rout of the visiting White Sox.

Lowrie socked the go-ahead homer in a five-run inning as he celebrated his 34th birthday in style. The game also marked the 50th anniversary of the team's first game at the Oakland Coliseum. Lowrie is slashing an impressive .351/.407/.595 so far on the young season to endear himself to fantasy owners in all formats.
Apr 18 - 2:11 AM

Mark Canha finished 3-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and two RBI in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Canha tore the cover off the ball in Cactus League spring play, but the team elected to go another way and he didn't break camp with the big club. Injuries gave him another shot at the big-league roster and he is making the most of his opportunity. Despite the fact he is slashing .368/.400/.579 he is only worth fantasy consideration in deeper AL-only leagues at the moment.
Apr 18 - 2:06 AM

Trevor Cahill allowed five hits with two walks and eight strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in his season debut in Tuesday's win against the White Sox.

It's the first time the A's needed their fifth starter so far this season and he was ace-like. The fresh Cahill threw 56 of his 92 pitches for strikes in the quality start, his first since July 16, 2017 when he was a member of the San Diego Padres. He is expected to make his next start Monday in Texas opposite the ice-cold Matt Moore, and he'll be in line for a two-start week.
Apr 18 - 2:02 AM

Athletics recalled RHP Lou Trivino from Triple-A Nashville.

Trivino had struck out eight batters over 4 1/3 scoreless innings of relief this season for Nashville. The 26-year-old right-hander will be available out of the A's bullpen Tuesday night against the White Sox.
