Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 17 August 2016 at 1:33 pm

The Oakland A’s have placed 28-year old righty swinging 2B/OF Tyler Ladendorf on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained left wrist.  Ladendorf has played in 45 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 4 for 48 (.083 avg, .185 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 0 homers, 1 RBI and 2 stolen bases.  He has now played in 54 games in his first two years in the majors (both with the A’s) and he is only 8 of 65 (.123 avg, .303 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 0 homers, 3 RBIs and 2 stolen bases.  I don’t see why the A’s keep giving Ladendorf chances, as he is a horrible hitter.

The Oakland A’s have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Sonny Gray on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right extensor muscle.  Gray has pitched in 21 games (all starts) so far this year for the A’s and he is 5-11 with a 5.74 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has given up 132 hits (18 homers) and 42 walks while whiffing 93 batters in his first 116 innings for the A’s so far this year, as he has been getting hit really hard.  Since July 1st, Gray has started 7 games for the A’s in which he is 2-5 with a 7.23 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.  Gray has now pitched in 97 games (95 starts) in his first four years with the A’s and he is 38-31 with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  Gray has looked nothing like the pitcher he was last year (All-Star, 3rd in Cy Young voting) or the first three years of his career.  Maybe the A’s should bite the bullet and shut hit down for an extended rest in an effort to get him healthy.  It’s not like the A’s are going to the playoffs this year.

The Oakland A’s have placed 32-year old switch-hitting 2B Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 4th, due to a bunion on his left foot.  If he has surgery on it, it will end his 2016 season.  Lowrie has played in 87 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 89 of 338 (.263 avg, .637 OPS) with 30 runs scored, 2 homers and 27 RBIs.  25-year old lefty swinging Max Muncy will likely take over as the A’s starting 2B until Lowrie returns to action.  Muncy has played in 19 games so far this year for the A’s and he is 12 of 47 (.255 avg, .725 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.  The A’s have called up 27-year old righty swinging outfielder Brett Eibner to replace Lowrie on the active roster.  Eibner played in 4 games in AAA-ball for the A’s after coming over from the Royals in deal for Billy Burns, and he was 4 for 13 (.308 avg, 1.192 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs.

UPDATE:  (8/16/2016) – The A’s have lost Jed Lowrie for the rest of the 2016 season after having surgery to remove the bunion from his left foot.
