Jesse Hahn, Yonder Alonso hurt in A’s loss to Miami

Jesse Hahn, Yonder Alonso hurt in A’s loss to Miami

Oakland’s feel-good vibe at home was tested severely Tuesday when the A’s starting pitcher and their All-Star candidate first baseman exited with injuries. Jesse Hahn left in the third inning with a right triceps strain, and first baseman Yonder Alonso - who’d hit his 13th homer earlier in the game - was struck on the wrist by a pitch in the sixth and left after the inning. Hahn, whose velocity dipped significantly in the third, gave up a season-high five earned runs in the A’s 11-9 loss to the Marlins. Alonso had just missed the previous four games with a slight knee sprain, and...

A’s Jesse Hahn exits game early after velocity drop

A’s starter Jesse Hahn left Tuesday night’s game against Miami just two-plus innings in after a noticeable dip in velocity.

Rehab from an elbow ligament replacement procedure is almost never that easy, though, and Bassitt said Tuesday that he will have his next start pushed back several days because of arm fatigue, and he will have his rehab assignment with Triple-A Nashville extended by at least 10 days. “I’m not bouncing back between starts as well as I need to be right now,” Bassitt said.

Axford makes his 2017 debut; Doolittle takes a step forward to return

OAKLAND The As officially welcomed John Axford back into their bullpen fold Sunday, and they got some encouraging news about another reliever.Sean Doolittle was expected to only throw a flat-ground session before the series finale against Boston, but he wound up throwing 15 pitches off the mound as well. Thats the first time Doolittle has thrown from the mound since joining the disabled list May 3 with a strained left shoulder. Next up is a 25-pitch session off the mound Wednesday.

A’s Sean Doolittle might be back sooner than anticipated

Sean Doolittle’s latest shoulder injury might not cost him anywhere near the kind of time his previous two shoulder problems did. Doolittle, out since April 30 with a shoulder strain, missed 59 games with a shoulder strain last year and most of the 2015 season with shoulder issues, but he began doing flat-ground work Saturday and will throw off the mound next week, he said. Doolittle’s current injury is different from the others he has had; it is in the lower front of the shoulder and Doolittle compared it to an impingement. Susan Slusser is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.

Knee strain lands Ryan Dull on A’s DL, Axford reinstated

Knee strain lands Ryan Dull on A’s DL, Axford reinstated Just as John Axford came off the disabled list, the A’s bullpen lost another reliever to an injury. Right-hander Ryan Dull said he felt something “pop” in his right knee on the first pitch he threw to Mitch Moreland on Friday night. Dull said he had a similar injury his freshman year at UNC-Asheville but “the pain wasn’t as severe as it is now.” The knee problem eight years ago was diagnosed as hamstring tendinitis along with meniscus inflammation. Because it happened at the end of the college baseball season, he...
