The A’s have placed starting DH Frank Thomas on the 15-day disabled list with a strained quad tendon. This will hurt the A’s as Thomas has been incredible since being signed after the Blue Jays cut him earlier this season. Thomas has played in 28 games for the A’s this season and he is 29 for 91 (.319 avg, .933 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 4 homers and 16 RBIs. Thomas has now played in 44 games combined for the Jays & A’s and he is 39 for 151 (.258 avg, .816 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 7 homers and 27 RBIs. Look for Mike Sweeney and Eric Chavez to replace Thomas in the starting lineup until he is ready to return.
