A's find themselves in decent shape with Graveman, Gray possibly returning

OAKLAND Some 10-9 records are better than others, and so it is that the As can hit the road for a nine-game trip feeling pretty good about themselves.Their just-completed homestand began with Opening Night starter Kendall Graveman leaving a game early and landing on the disabled list. That was coupled with news that shortstop Marcus Semien would be lost for two months or more with a fractured wrist.The As responded to those developments with a five-game winning streak that was halted by Sundays 11-1 rout at the hands of the Seattle Mariners.

Streaks by Triggs, A’s end in lopsided loss

Taylor Motter hit a grand slam off Triggs in the third inning, and Nelson Cruz hit a three-run homer off Raul Alcantara in the seventh. The A’s did little against Yovani Gallardo, collecting two hits through six innings and two more in the seventh when they chased the Seattle starter. Healy had two of Oakland’s five hits as the cleanup hitter, the spot usually reserved for Khris Davis. Triggs entered 3-0 without yielding an earned run in 17 2/3 innings, the longest run by an Oakland starter to open a season. In franchise history, he was the third A’s pitcher to start a season with...

Sonny Gray 1 rehab start away from rejoining A’s?

Sonny Gray was in good spirits Sunday, knowing his latest rehab assignment went well and he seems close to returning to the A’s rotation. “I was excited to go out without limitations other than the pitch count,” said Gray, who’s overcoming a strained lat. Saturday night, Gray threw 47 pitches in five scoreless innings for Class A Stockton (one hit, no walks) and another 18 in the bullpen. Gray hung around with the A’s prospects including 6-foot-7 lefty A.J. Puk, the team’s top pick in last year’s draft whose locker was adjacent to Gray’s. “You throw in extended spring...

A's lineup: Rosales moves down, Khris Davis out, Olson in vs Mariners

As the A's go for their sixth straight win, Khris Davis gets a day off while top prospect Matt Olson gets the start in the outfield.

Homer-happy A’s hold off Seattle for fifth win in row

Extra-base hits, decent defense, winning streaks - there are signs, three weeks into the season, that the A’s might be OK, after all. With first-inning homers Saturday from Adam Rosales and Ryon Healy, plus a good outing from rookie right-hander Jharel Cotton, Oakland downed Seattle 4-3. Jed Lowrie followed with a single to center and Ryon Healy drilled a homer to left center to give the A’s a 3-1 lead three batters into the bottom of the first. The A’s added another run in the third when Lowrie singled again and Healy sent him to third with a double down the left-field line. Khris...

A’s John Axford exects to be throwing again soon

Reliever John Axford said Saturday that he’s probably just days away from resuming throwing as he recovers from a right shoulder strain. Axford said he had some issues Wednesday with sock throws - throwing a baseball down the length of a long sock to mimic a normal delivery - but he believes that was because he found the sock toss “really awkward.” Axford tried to warm up April 4 but felt some shoulder discomfort and the next day was placed on the DL retroactive to April 2, so the set-up man has not pitched this season.

Rajai Davis could be ready to play for A’s on Sunday

Rajai Davis could be ready to play for A’s on Sunday Rajai Davis was on the field before Saturday’s game, testing out his left hamstring, doing some running and some hitting. “I think we’re potentially close to getting him in a game,” manager Bob Melvin said. Melvin said that even with the shorter DL stay - it’s a 10-day minimum now - putting Davis on the disabled list was never considered an option, so the problem is fairly minor. Davis felt the hamstring grab while pulling into third base on Thursday and remained in the game for another at-bat, but things didn’t...

A’s Rajai Davis expected to miss 1-2 days with tight hamstring

A’s Rajai Davis expected to miss 1-2 days with tight hamstring Center fielder Rajai Davis was out of the A’s lineup Friday, a day after experiencing left hamstring tightness while running the bases. There was no plan to put Davis on the disabled list — the A’s are hoping he’ll miss only a day or two — but Matt Olson was recalled from Triple-A Nashville for bench depth. Considered an above average defensive first baseman, Olson also will be available to play right field, where last year he had 80 starts with Nashville and four with Oakland. Olson gives the A’s four bench...

A’s Marcus Semien upbeat after wrist surgery

A’s Marcus Semien upbeat after wrist surgery Marcus Semien has to dress and eat one-handed, and he can’t hold his baby son, Isaiah, but the A’s shortstop said his right wrist surgery went so well Tuesday that he might get checked again sooner than expected. “Hopefully we can do another CT scan sooner than six weeks because it looked so good,” Semien said Thursday. Dr. Steve Shin of the Kerlan-Jobe Clinic in Los Angeles performed the 50-minute procedure, cleaning up some addition inflammation along with inserting a screw into the hairline fracture of the scaphoid bone to help it...
