The Curious Case Of Ryon Healy v. Ryon Healy

The Curious Case Of Ryon Healy v. Ryon Healy

At first glance, Ryon Healy appears to be a simple case: dude can rake LHPs, flails at too many sliders against RHPs, does not help you with his feet or glove, has severe walk allergies for which an epipen has yet to be invented, seems like a great guy. Thing is, as the A’s contemplate a direction going forward, one that could move Khris Davis to DH or keep him in LF, one that could incorporate out-of-option Healy-like prospect Renato Nuñez, Oakland has to make a decision about Healy that is somewhat complex. Let’s look at the pros and cons… Pros: As bad as he can look at times,...

Strong start for Daniel Mengden, Khris Davis’ 43rd homer power A’s win

ARLINGTON, Texas: Close the book on the A’s 2017 season, and while you’re at it, pencil Daniel Mengden in for a spot in Oakland’s rotation next spring. Mengden, back from a spate of injuries and minor-league time, had the best finish of any of Oakland’s starters and he punctuated that by going seven scoreless innings Sunday in the A’s 5-2 win at Texas. Khris Davis hit his 43rd homer in the eighth inning, establishing a career high, and Jed Lowrie upped his Oakland doubles record to 49 with a two-run liner to left in the third inning.

A’s go into final game with some goals in mind

ARLINGTON, Texas - In Oakland’s final game of the season Sunday, there are several A’s players gunning for some personal marks: *Jed Lowrie is two doubles short of 50, a number he’s mentioned he’d like to attain. *Khris Davis would set a personal best with his next homer, and he’d also reach 110 RBIs for the season. *Marcus Semien wants to get his average over .250. Often, managers are more likely to be trying to protect players’ numbers on the last day, sitting guys who are batting .300 or the like. Not so for...

Jed Lowrie sets Oakland doubles record in A’s loss at Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas - Jed Lowrie’s season was so strong, the A’s held onto him at the deadline and will pick up his option this winter, two outcomes that appeared far-fetched early in the season. Friday, during the A’s 5-3 loss at Texas, Lowrie set Oakland’s all-time single-season double record, whacking his 48th to move out of a tie with Jason Giambi (2001). Lowrie’s double to center in the fourth was one of just two hits the A’s recorded in the first five innings against Texas starter Martin Perez. In the seventh, Khris Davis walked, Ryon Healy...

Khris Davis is first Oakland A’s player with consecutive 40-homer seasons

Khris Davis is first Oakland A’s player with consecutive 40-homer seasons

Only Jimmie Foxx did it, with the Philadelphia A’s in 1932-34. Reggie Jackson never did it. Jose Canseco never did it. Nor did Mark McGwire or Jason Giambi, at least not with the A’s. Not even Matt Stairs or Jack Cust. On Saturday, Khris Davis hit his 40th home run of the year, making him the first Oakland A’s player ever to blast 40 in consecutive seasons. The only other Athletic to do so in franchise history was Jimmie Foxx, with the Philadelphia A’s back in 1932-34. McGwire and Canseco are the only others who had multiple nonconsecutive A’s seasons above that threshold, and...
