Adam Dunn traded by White Sox for RHP Nolan Sanburn

In the end, Adam Dunn could get what he hoped for when he signed that ballyhooed four-year, $56 million contract with the White Sox in 2011 — the chance to play in the postseason. But it would be with the Oakland Athletics, who acquired the left-handed slugger Sunday on the last day players are eligible for postseason rosters. And it would be the final chapter of his 14-year career. Dunn had hinted in recent days that this season would be his last, and he...

Angels beat A's again

Angels shut out reeling A’s again, this time 2-0, by relievers

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Angel Stadium Oakland’s worst stretch of the season wobbled on, the team looking as bad as at any point over the past two years. Oakland’s defense has fallen apart during the four-game series at Anaheim. The A’s offense appeared to check out after the Yoenis Cespedes trade, if not before. And for the second night in a row, Oakland was shut out, this time 2-0 and by a group of eight Angels relievers. The A’s, who still lead the majors in runs, have not scored in the past 22 innings overall. Cory Rasmus started for the Angels in the spot left...

Coco Crisp not in lineup, other A’s injury updates

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at Angel Stadium As expected after he barreled into the wall in center here last night, Coco Crisp is not in the A’s lineup, and manager Bob Melvin said Crisp is dealing with some neck stiffness. He is unlikely to be available tonight. With a day game tomorrow, I’d speculate that he also probably would not start then, either. John Jaso, though, is feeling much better after a week on the concussion DL, and he might do some baseball activity this coming week in Oakland. You’d have to imagine he won’t get back behind the plate this season, given...
