Intrasquad game – Pat Venditte, defense stand out

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Fitch Park The A’s visiting team beat the A’s home team 1-0 in an intrasquad game, with minor-league infielder Max Muncy sending Billy Burns in with a base hit off lefty Brock Huntzinger. The highlights of the day included ambidextrous reliever Pat Venditte pitching right-handed and left-handed, and he did have to indicate which hand he’d be throwing with when switch-hitter Andy Parrino came up. He threw right-handed to Parrino, who hit left lefty and struck out. I can’t do Venditte in words – you have to see him in action in person to...

The A’s are one of the teams with interest in free-agent outfielder Dayan Viciedo right now, according to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. The Blue Jays are another, and that makes sense, with outfielder Michael Saunders just going down with a knee injury. But the A’s aren’t crazy as a potential destination, either. Oakland doesn’t have a ton of power after trading Josh Donaldson, Brandon Moss and Derek Norris. Viciedo has two...

He said teams will be posted later today, so I’ll update that. Today’s action here is mostly defensive drills and situational-hitting competition (always kind of fun) but there is no live batting practice after two days of long hitting sessions – live BP,...
