The Oakland A’s have activated 27-year old righty reliever Liam Hendricks from the D.L.  Hendricks pitched in 11 games (0 starts) earlier this year for the A’s and he was 0-0 with a 8.27 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP.  He has given up 28 hits (2 homers) and 1 walk while whiffing 19 batters in his first 16 1/3 innings this year for the A’s.  To make room in the pen for Hendricks, the A’s have sent 27-year old righty reliever Andrew Triggs to AAA.  Triggs has pitched in 11 games (1 start) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 7.29 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP.

The Oakland A’s have placed 24-year old lefty starting pitcher Sean Manaea on the 15-day disabled list due to a lefty pronator strain.  He has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 2-4 with a 6.02 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.  He has given up 55 hits (8 homers) and 16 walks while whiffing 40 batters in his first 49 1/3 innings this year.  28-year old lefty starting pitcher Eric Surkamp will replace Manaea in the starting rotation.  He has pitched in 6 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-3 with a 6.41 ERA and a 1.95 WHIP.

The Oakland A’s place Rich Hill on the D.L.

The Oakland A’s have placed 36-year old lefty starting pitcher Rich Hill on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right groin.  Hill has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 8-3 with a 2.25 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP.  He has given up only 48 hits and 24 walks while whiffing 74 batters in his first 64 innings this year….which are very impressive numbers.  He has also hit 7 batters so far this year.  Hill was signed to a 1-year, $6 million dollar deal last winter which raised some eyebrows.  But it appears that the A’s got a bargain when everyone thought they overspent on Hill.  The A’s need Hill to get healthy soon, as he has been their best starting pitcher in 2016….by a huge margin!

The Oakland A’s place Sonny Gray on the D.L.

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 22 May 2016 at 11:47 am

The Oakland A’s have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Sonny Gray on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21st due to a strained right trapezius muscle.  Gray has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 3-5 with a 6.19 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP.  He has given up 55 hits (8 homers) and 24 walks while whiffing 41 batters in his first 48 innings, so he has getting hit hard this year.  He also has a Major League leading 9 wild pitches, which isn’t like him.  The A’s have called up 26-year old lefty reliever Daniel Coulombe to replace Gray on the pitching staff for now.  He pitched in 1 game (out of the pen) for the A’s earlier this year and he was 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA and a 2.50 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 10 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the A’s and he is 0-0 with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP.  The A’s hope that Gray won’t be out too long.

The Oakland A’s lose Josh Reddick for a while

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 20 May 2016 at 9:17 am

29-year old lefty swinging RF Josh Reddick fractured his left thumb in last night’s game and he will miss the next 4-6 weeks.  This is a HUGE blow for the Oakland A’s!  Reddick has played in 41 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 47 of 146 (.322 avg, .860 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 5 homers, 18 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  He has played in 569 games in his first five years with the A’s and he is 521 of 2,031 (.257 avg, .762 OPS) with 280 runs scored, 81 homers, 290 RBIs and 35 stolen bases.  The A’s are going to miss Reddick’s bat and his aggressive play!

The Oakland A’s place Josh Phegley on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 17 May 2016 at 9:27 am

The Oakland A’s have placed 28-year old righty swinging catcher Josh Phegley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 10th due to right knee inflammation.  Phegley has played in 13 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 10 for 37 (.270 avg, .632 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 0 homers and 3 RBIs.  31-year old lefty swinging Stephen Vogt and 30-year old righty swinging Matt McBride will platoon at catcher until Phegley returns to action.  Vogt has played in 33 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 29 of 122 (.238 avg, .638 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 3 homers and 7 RBIs.  McBride has played in 2 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 1 for 6 (.167 avg, .333 OPS).

The Oakland A’s have placed Jed Lowrie on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 11 May 2016 at 11:52 am

The Oakland A’s have placed 32-year old switch-hitting 2B Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list due to a right shin contusion.  Lowrie has played in 32 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 35 of 116 (.302 avg, .686 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 0 homers and 17 RBIs.  He is tied for the lead in RBIs for the A’s with Josh Reddick, so they are going to miss him while he’s out of action.  30-year old lefty swinging Chris Coghlan will likely take over at 2B until Lowrie returns to action.  He has played in 30 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 16 of 97 (.165 avg, .563 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 4 homers, 11 RBIs and 1 stolen base.  Coghlan has also whiffed 28 times already this year, so he has some holes to fix in his swing.

The Oakland A’s place Mark Canha on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 10 May 2016 at 2:39 pm

The Oakland Athletics have placed 27-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Mark Canha on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9th due to a strained back.  Canha has played in 16 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 5 of 41 (.122 avg, .481 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 3 homers and 6 RBIs.  Canha has been lost at the plate this year as he has whiffed 20 times and hasn’t walked yet.  Canha has now played in 140 games in his first two years with the A’s and he is 117 of 482 (.243 avg, .720 OPS) with 65 runs scored, 19 homers, 76 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  Hopefully the A’s will get the Canha that played for them in 2015 when he comes off the D.L.

UPDATE:  (5/17/2016) – Mark Canha has underwent season ending hip surgery.

The Oakland A’s place Liam Hendriks on the D.L.

The Oakland A’s have placed 27-year old righty reliever Liam Hendriks on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 8th due to a right triceps strain.  Hendriks has pitched in 11 games (0 starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 8.27 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP.  He has given up 28 hits (2 homers) and 1 walk while whiffing 19 batters in his first 16 1/3 innings for the A’s this year.  He has now pitched in 108 games (34 starts) in his first six years in the show and he is 8-15 with a 5.34 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.  It’s starting to look like his rock solid 2015 season with the Toronto Blue Jays could have been a fluke!

Sam Fuld is done for the year for the Oakland A’s

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 29 April 2016 at 6:33 pm

34-year old lefty swinging outfielder Sam Fuld needs surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff and he will miss the rest of the way in 2016 for the Oakland A’s.  Fuld didn’t play at all this year for the A’s.  Fuld played in 120 games for the A’s in 2015 and he was 57 of 290 (.197 avg, .569 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 2 homers, 22 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.  Fuld has played in 180 games in his two years with the A’s and he is 96 of 477 (.201 avg, .583 OPS) with 59 runs scored, 5 homers, 41 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.  The A’s won’t miss Fuld too much, as he just can’t hit.
