Hot-hitting Chad Pinder out of A’s lineup; upcoming pitching plans

Hot-hitting Chad Pinder out of A’s lineup; upcoming pitching plans Chad Pinder has homered four times in the past eight games, and yet the rookie’s location to start Tuesday night’s game against Miami will be on the bench. Pinder, a right-handed hitting utility player, got more playing time than usual in the Boston series because the A’s faced three left-handed starters, but Yonder Alonso (who missed four games with a slight knee sprain) and Stephen Vogt (who sat against the lefty starters) are both back in the lineup Tuesday. Melvin said that the extra time off might make him more...

Diamondbacks 5, White Sox 4: Bunting gets in the way

Admirable team effort hampered by multiple unsuccessful attempts to play for a run With Avisail Garcia battling flu-like symptoms and the White Sox already carrying eight relievers, a short bench got shorter for Rick Renteria. With Dylan Covey exiting in the third inning with what the Sox called a strained left oblique, the Renteria spent his entire said short bench by the eighth inning. And yet for some reason, he managed this game like he wanted it to go to extras. It almost did. Tyler Saladino just got under one against Fernando Rodney, flying out deep to left, one inning after Jose...
