Athletics recalled INF/OF Max Muncy from Triple-A Nashville.

Muncy is batting .257/.366/.314 in 41 plate appearances this season at the major league level. The 25-year-old infielder is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance, even if trades open up playing time for him.
Jul 25 - 12:14 PM

Josh Reddick (back) played an inning of right field Sunday in the A's defeat of the Rays.

That's a pretty good indication that his return to the starting lineup is imminent. Reddick has been bothered by a sore back since Saturday. It's nothing serious.
Jul 25 - 6:13 AM

Athletics optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn threw 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday afternoon in the A's win over the Rays, but it was only meant to be a spot start. He should get another try in a few weeks after Oakland sells off some parts.
Jul 24 - 7:38 PM

Jesse Hahn delivered 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the A's 3-2 win over the Rays.

It was the best outing of the season for Hahn, who has been toiling away at Triple-A Nashville since posting a 6.49 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over his first seven starts with Oakland. He yielded just four hits and one walk while striking out five on Sunday, keeping Tampa Bay off the board until the top of the eighth inning. Hahn probably deserves another turn, but it's not clear yet if that will happen.
Jul 24 - 6:54 PM

Coco Crisp was scratched from Sunday's lineup due to neck soreness.

Crisp has a history of neck issues, although there's been no indication that this is more than a day-to-day thing. The A's put Yonder Alonso in the lineup in Crisp's place, moving Danny Valencia to right field and Jake Smolinski to center.
Jul 24 - 2:06 PM

Josh Reddick (back) remained out of the Athletics' lineup Sunday.

It's a second straight game that he's missed due to a sore back. Reddick is considered day-to-day. Jake Smolinski is in right field Sunday.
Jul 24 - 12:50 PM

Athletics optioned INF/OF Arismendy Alcantara to Triple-A Nashville.

He's clearly out to accommodate the arrival of Sunday's starter, Jesse Hahn. Alcantara has three hits in 13 at-bats in his brief time with the big club this season.
Jul 24 - 12:18 PM

Athletics recalled RHP Jesse Hahn from Triple-A Nashville.

Hahn will make a spot start against the Rays on Sunday. He could be sent down right after the outing, depending on whether the A's think Rich Hill (blister) will be ready for his next turn. Hahn holds an ugly 6.49 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in seven starts with the A's this season.
Jul 24 - 12:17 PM

Kendall Graveman tossed a complete game and held the Rays to three runs as the Athletics won in walk-off fashion by a score of 4-3 on Saturday.

It was his first complete game of the season and only the second of his career. He finished the game on an efficient 102 pitches after allowing nine hits and one walk. He fanned four batters. He now has a 7-6 record and 4.15 ERA in 110 2/3 innings spread across 19 starts.
Jul 24 - 12:36 AM

Ryon Healy launched a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the Rays on Saturday.

It was the second homer of his career after being called up last week. He is slashing .281/.303/.563 in 32 at-bats. He has 16 homers combined between the minors and majors this year. At 6-5/225 he is a big man, but was not a huge home run hitter in the minors. He was more of a high batting average guy, having hit over .300 the last two years. Healy has been getting everyday playing time since his call-up and could be a quality fantasy producer the rest of the season.
Jul 24 - 12:19 AM

Jake Smolinski hit a two-run home run to tie the game in the ninth inning of a game the Athletics would win later in the inning on Saturday.

He went 2-for-4 in the game, boosting his line to .324/.375/.528 with six bombs in 108 at-bats. He is obviously deserving of more playing time but will not be fantasy-worthy until he gets it.
Jul 24 - 12:11 AM

Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.

It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs.
Jul 23 - 7:19 PM

Rich Hill (blister) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday.

He'll wear a cover on his finger where a blister has developed and is refusing to go away -- that cover, by the way, can't be worn in a live game. The veteran left-hander lasted just five pitches in his first start out of the All-Star break, back on July 17. Hill is one of Oakland's better trade chips leading up to the August 1 deadline, but he obviously needs to get past this. There is no timetable for his return to the Athletics' rotation.
Jul 23 - 6:23 PM

Athletics transferred LHP Fernando Rodriguez to the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing has changed in the progress of the injured left-hander, this was done merely as a procedural move to create a spot on the 40-man roster for Bruce Maxwell who joined the A's on Saturday.
Jul 23 - 3:08 PM

Athletics placed C/1B Stephen Vogt on the family emergency medical leave list.

Vogt has a family matter that he needs to tend to for a couple of days, so the Athletics brought up Bruce Maxwell from Triple-A to help handle the load behind the plate.
