Fuld’s jaw injury `could be worse;’ he should be back soon

Fuld’s jaw injury `could be worse;’ he should be back soon

Sam Fuld showed up at Hohokam Stadium Saturday with the left side of his jaw slightly swollen, the residue of having been hit there by an errant throw during Friday’s road game against the Rockies. The Oakland outfielder had to… Continue Reading →

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Hohokam Stadium Sam FuldSam Fuld in the third inning of today’s game vs. Colorado. Associated Press Outfielder Sam Fuld was hit in the jaw by a throw as he was running to first base in a game in Goodyear, Ariz., today, and he told me he was being taken to the hospital for a CT scan on his jaw. Fuld left the game in the seventh inning and was hit when first baseman Ryan Casteel couldn’t haul in the throw from shortstop Cristhian Adames.

Superb matchup on tap at Hohokam: Gray vs. Kershaw

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Hohokam Stadium Sure, it’s only spring training, but it’s still a whale of a matchup today: Sonny Gray vs. Clayton Kershaw. And Barry Zito is following Gray, so it’s a couple of Cy Young winners in action and potentially a future one. We have some high-profile national media here as a result, including Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. The A’s have split squads today – so all those not in game here vs. the Dodgers were getting grief about ducking Kershaw. Sam Fuld let me know he’s 2 for 2 lifetime vs. Kershaw, with a triple, so no ducking by...

Sam Fuld: Living With Perpetual Uncertainty

On March 8th, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to interview Sam Fuld before the game. Now 33, Fuld still has yet to enjoy a season with any real job security present or future. For Fuld, spring training has never just been about "getting ready for the season" -- it has pretty much always been an audition. When baseballgirl texted me to inquire who I had interviewed earlier that morning, my phone flatly refused to text that I had talked to Fuld. Every time I tried to type "Fuld" it auto-corrected it to "Gulf" until I finally gave up and just told her that I had talked to "Gulf,...

Recap: A's defeat DBacks 6-5

Gray looked decent, Zito looked good, then bad, and Zobrist is in a class all his own. Do I really need to summarize a spring training game? I'm not sure. But here we go. Mark Canha hit a rocket homer. Canha is looking like he may serve a role on this team; namely, power. While Sam Fuld and Craig Gentry keyed the offense by getting on base and motoring around the bases today, Mark Canha provided the big blast. Vis-a-vis the outfield, Coco Crisp, Fuld, Gentry, potentially Billy Burns...they all are speed guys with little to no home run power. We may see a fair amount of doubles from that...
