Oakland A’s activate Kendall Graveman from DL, option Matt Olson

The Oakland A’s activated pitcher Kendall Graveman from the 10-day disabled list, the team announced Thursday. Graveman will start tonight’s game against the Angels. To make room on the roster, 1B/OF Matt Olson was optioned to Triple-A. Graveman looked excellent in his first two starts of the season and even seemed to have added some velocity, but he left his third outing after just 74 pitches. Soon after, he went on the DL with a strained shoulder, though it was made clear that the injury wasn’t serious and the move was precautionary. As hoped, he only missed one start. His numbers...

OAKLAND Some 10-9 records are better than others, and so it is that the As can hit the road for a nine-game trip feeling pretty good about themselves.Their just-completed homestand began with Opening Night starter Kendall Graveman leaving a game early and landing on the disabled list. That was coupled with news that shortstop Marcus Semien would be lost for two months or more with a fractured wrist.The As responded to those developments with a five-game winning streak that was halted by Sundays 11-1 rout at the hands of the Seattle Mariners.

Streaks by Triggs, A’s end in lopsided loss

Taylor Motter hit a grand slam off Triggs in the third inning, and Nelson Cruz hit a three-run homer off Raul Alcantara in the seventh. The A’s did little against Yovani Gallardo, collecting two hits through six innings and two more in the seventh when they chased the Seattle starter.
