A’s wallop Angels 21-3, another big day for Stephen Piscotty

The A’s ensured their spiffy record over the past 14 home series remained pristine by pounding the Angels in the finale at the Coliseum on Thursday. Oakland scored five in the third, seven in the fourth and six in the sixth to hammer out a 21-3 victory and take the series two games to one. The A’s run total was their most since Sept. 30, 2000, when they beat Texas 23-2, and their 22 hits were a season high. The A’s trimmed their magic number to clinch a playoff spot to six, with New York and Tampa Bay both playing later in the day. After Thursday’s victory, Oakland trailed the Yankees...

Sean Manaea’s surgery “best-case scenario;” he might return to A’s next year

Sean Manaea’s surgery “best-case scenario;” he might return to A’s next year

Sean Manaea’s shoulder surgery Tuesday was “best-case scenario,” renowned orthopedist Dr. Neal ElAttrache told the A’s, and manager Bob Melvin said the left-hander might be able to pitch again sometime next year. The A’s feared that Manaea, who threw a no-hitter against Boston on April 21, would be lost for all of next year, but the repairs needed were less extensive than often is the case with shoulder surgeries. “There is some hope that next year has some potential,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said of the possibility of Manaea’s return in 2019. “The surgery went well enough...

A’s Cahill sees improvement; upcoming rotation in place

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The A’s rotation “has a lot of moving parts here,” as manager Bob Melvin said Sunday, but Trevor Cahill might rejoin the group this week, helping to simplify things a bit. Melvin said that Cahill, who received a trigger-point injection for rhomboid (back) tightness last week, played catch Sunday and felt good. Cahill will throw off the mound Tuesday to see if he still feels the issue while extending in his delivery; if all goes well, he is likely to start during the series against Minnesota. The rotation for the series against the Angels includes a...

A’s Trevor Cahill gets trigger-point injection for back soreness

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Trevor Cahill received a trigger-point injection for discomfort in his upper back and the right-hander will miss at least his next start, according to A’s manager Bob Melvin. “Hopefully that alleviates the issue,” Melvin said. “We’ll see how he responds.” Cahill has tightness in the rhomboid muscle behind his right arm, and he will not throw for a few days, which means he will not get a chance to start twice on the next homestand. Cahill has a 1.49 ERA at home and a 7.02 ERA on the road. This is the third injury to sideline Cahill this season; he also...

A’s Trevor Cahill sent for MRI; if OK, could get two home starts

BALTIMORE - Trevor Cahill will miss his scheduled start at Tampa Bay on Saturday, but he potentially could wind up starting twice on the next homestand instead. As The Chronicle first reported Wednesday, Cahill is dealing with a rhomboid muscle strain in his upper back. Manager Bob Melvin said that Cahill returned to the Bay Area on Thursday for an MRI. “He’s got a little soreness,” Melvin said. “Hopefully it’s just a muscular thing.” Cahill’s ERA is five and a half runs higher on the road than at home, 1.49 at the Coliseum and 7.02 away from the Coliseum. Asked about the...

BALTIMORE - Yet another member of the A’s rotation is dealing with an injury, The Chronicle has learned.
