A’s Josh Phegley, Jake Smolinski on mend, may return in September

The A’s disabled list is the lightest it has been all year, and two more players are close to going on rehab assignments. Catcher Josh Phegley (oblique) is being worked back into batting practice, while outfielder Jake Smolinski (shoulder surgery) is throwing at a distance of 90 feet. Smolinski, who has been out all season, expects to go to Class A Stockton in the next week and will be a designated hitter initially, but could be playing the outfield this month and possibly see time with the A’s in September. Phegley also might be more of a September consideration for Oakland, given...

Rookie Jharel Cotton struggles again in A’s loss

Kyle Seager hit the first drive off Cotton, a three-run shot with two outs in the first. Cotton threw 25 pitches in the inning and allowed five hits; he gave up only three more hits over the final five innings he worked. Since coming off the DL July 30, Cotton (5-9) has allowed 14 earned runs in 14 2/3 innings, putting him at risk of being bounced from the rotation in favor of Daniel Gossett, whose last outing before being demoted last week was a three-hit, one-run effort at San Francisco. Matt Joyce, who had a rough night Tuesday after returning from a two-game suspension for using an...

Matt Olson: sixth time with A’s a charm?

Matt Olson: sixth time with A’s a charm? Five cups of coffee, five demotions to Triple-A Nashville. The ultimate short-timer. Sunday’s trade sending Yonder Alonso to Seattle cleared playing time at first base, and the plan is for Olson to be in the lineup when the opposition starts a right-handed pitcher. Melvin repeatedly has called Olson, 23, the first baseman of the future. For now, that means platooning with Ryon Healy, who will play first against lefties and serve as designated hitter against righties. Everybody who gets up here wants to stay here. Olson has tried to stay...

Iinstead of withdrawing the revocable waivers, Oakland - continuing its stated mission to go young - worked out a deal for Powell, 24, an outfielder who hit .194 with two RBIs in 23 games with Seattle this year but who is batting .340 in 58 games at Triple-A Tacoma. Of his work with them, Alonso said with a laugh, “I tried to help them out every single day, I definitely think they got the picture.” Alonso already had texted...
