Gentry activated, batting second vs. Angels

The A’s aren’t mashing the ball much these days. So maybe they’ll try to race past the Angels in this weekend’s American League West showdown at the Coliseum. Oakland activated swift outfielder Craig Gentry from the disabled list, where he spent nearly a month because of a broken right hand. Manager Bob Melvin wasted no time putting Gentry in the lineup — he’ll bat second and play left field in tonight’s series opener, right behind Coco Crisp. The A’s hope Craig Gentry can spark their sluggish offense. (MCT News Service photo) This gives the A’s a dynamic, speedy one-two...

Craig Gentry activated from disabled list ahead of Athletics series against Angels

The right-handed batting Gentry will benefit the A's against the two lefties the A's expect to face against the Angels. The Athletics announced that outfielder Craig Gentry was activated from the disabled list today ahead of the team's series against the Los Angeles Angels.

Dan Otero temporarily optioned to Sacramento ahead of Craig Gentry or Kyle Blanks activation

With Jason Hammel skipping a start and either Kyle Blanks or Craig Gentry returning, the Athletics can spare a reliever until a few days before Hammel's next start on August 26. Read on to see how the A's could manage past that date. The Oakland Athletics optioned reliever Dan Otero to the Sacramento River Cats ahead of the likely activation of either Kyle Blanks or Craig Gentry from their rehabilitation assignment, (confirmed by Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle). Optioning Otero spares the Athletics from being forced to release one of their trade acquisitions. Even if not...

Josh Reddick not in A’s lineup; Craig Gentry updated

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Turner Field Josh Reddick wasn’t going to start one of these games against a lefty, Mike Minor, at Atlanta (Brandon Moss sat out the last one) so he’s getting tonight’s game to rest, at least initially; he is certainly available to pinch hit or play defense whenever needed. Reddick nearly hit a ball out in the ninth last night and he’s been one of the A’s been hitters the past few weeks, but he knew at an NL park he was going to start once vs. a lefty and Moss the other. Craig Gentry (broken hand) is on the verge of starting a [...]
