To clear space on the 40-man roster, first baseman Ike Davis was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. ★★★ Sean Doolittle made five...

Oakland A's injury update: Ike Davis out for season, Sean Doolittle back soon

Oakland A's first baseman Ike Davis will miss the rest of the 2015 season due to a torn labrum in his hip that will require surgery, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. Davis hit the DL on Wednesday, at which time the injury had been deemed a strained hip, but an MRI revealed the full extent of the damage. The obvious replacement for Davis at first base is Mark Canha, who has started the team's last eight games anyway (seven of them at 1B). Canha has responded to that opportunity with a batting line of .424/.472/.636 (1.109 OPS) with one homer, three walks and only...

The case for the Oakland A's releasing Ike Davis in August

In 2014, the Oakland A's got absolutely no production from first base. They combined Brandon Moss, an injured injured Stephen Vogt, a dash of Callaspo, an eye of Barton, and a pinch of Blanks and Freiman to concoct an underwhelming .684 OPS, 26th in MLB. Their total line: A's 1B, 2014: .230/.303/.381, .684 OPS (26th) 22 HR Every single one of those players from last year is gone except for Vogt, and he's back to catching now that his foot has healed. In the offseason, the A's addressed the position by adding bounce-back candidate Ike Davis, professional hitter Billy Butler, and unknown...
