A’s leave Arizona with good mindset, camaraderie

Ariz - After two last-place seasons in which the A’s felt there were some divisive clubhouse elements, the team was careful to bring in well-regarded players with leadership qualities. New third baseman Trevor Plouffe, already cited as a team leader, said, I thought we gelled together as a team. ... Another new player, right fielder Matt Joyce, also is enthusiastic about the A’s state of mind going into the season. This group of guys has just been phenomenal, the kind of character and attitude we have - you couldn’t ask for anything better. Fifth outfielder Jake Smolinski,...

A’s Khris Davis, Trevor Plouffe won’t play until Bay Bridge Series

A’s cleanup hitter Davis hasn’t played in a week because of a minor right quad strain. Melvin said that starter Chris Bassitt, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, threw 15 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday, paused for an “inning break,” and then threw another 15 pitches. Bassitt is projected to be back with the A’s by midseason but he has progressed so well this spring that barring any setbacks, his time frame for returning might be more toward the end of the first half than the start of the second half.

Adaptable, affable Trevor Plouffe finds new home with A’s

The A’s new third baseman had no choice but to become proficient at baseball as a child growing up in Castaic (Los Angeles County), because he played up three years to be on a team with his older brother, Marshall. When I was 9, I played on my brother’s 12 year-old team because it was easier for my dad: ‘I’m not going to go to two different practices! Plouffe, now 30, played all over the place his first few seasons with the Twins: shortstop, second base, some outfield. Gardenhire, now Arizona’s bench coach, credited Plouffe with making himself into a good third baseman,...

The A’s, adjustments, and the joys of a low expectations team

The A’s, adjustments, and the joys of a low expectations team

There are stories galore to watch this season. In the most boring month of the baseball year, writers stretch for stories. That’s why if you head over to FanGraphs, you’ll find yourself with a story about Yonder Alonso, the A’s platoon first baseman. Alonso wouldn’t typically warrant a story on a national site, let alone the pages of this one. His tenure on the A’s has been tenuous in recent weeks, the addition of Trevor Plouffe and Ryon Healy’s accompanying move creating a roster squeeze.
