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

A’s Sean Manaea to have arthroscopic shoulder surgery

BALTIMORE - A’s had hinted since Sean Manaea went on the disabled list two weeks ago that the left-hander probably would not return this season and Tuesday, it became official: Manaea, who leads the team with 12 wins, will have arthroscopic shoulder surgery on Sept. 19. Dr. Neal ElAttrache, one of the most sought-after orthopedic surgeons in pro sports, will perform the procedure in Los Angeles and the team will have more information about Manaea’s prognosis after the surgery.

A’s roll 7-3, complete sweep of Rangers

Their starting pitcher couldn’t find the strike zone with a compass. Jed Lowrie, who usually bats third, had the day off. The rest of their hitters had no clue against Texas’ first pitcher and were grateful he departed after three innings. And, still, the A’s rolled to victory and completed another successful homestand. Sunday’s 7-3 win over Texas offered a tidy snapshot of Oakland’s crazy-good season. The A’s leaned on their lights-out bullpen (seven relievers combined for 6 1/3 scoreless innings), got offensive contributions throughout the order and swept the hapless Rangers...

‘Bullpenning’ III: A’s start Hendriks for 3rd time in 6 games

Liam Hendriks conducted an interview before Friday night’s A’s-Rangers game even though starting pitchers never give pregame interviews on days they start. An A’s official said everyone’s still trying to figure out this “bullpenning” thing, and Hendriks was cool with it, so he stood at his locker answering questions as if he were simply a reliever. Which he is. Except on days he isn’t. Like Friday. For the third time in six games, Hendriks will start for the A’s as the first in an expected conga line of pitchers. Both times Hendriks started previously, Saturday and Tuesday,...

A’s top Yankees 8-2, take series against potential playoff opponent

If, as catcher Jonathan Lucroy suggested two days earlier, the A’s wanted to send a message to the Yankees and the rest of the league with the three-game series against New York, it was received after Oakland administered a thorough drubbing Wednesday. Helped along by a batch of balls skipping to the backstop, the A’s scored four times in the first inning and kept adding on here and there until they wound up with an 8-2 victory over the Yankees, Oakland’s potential postseason opponent. New York currently holds the top wild-card spot in the American League and the A’s the second spot,...
