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.

The Oakland A’s have placed Chris Bassitt on the D.L.

The Oakland A’s have placed 27-year old righty starting pitcher Chris Bassitt on the 15-day disabled list due to a right elbow strain.  Bassitt has pitched in 5 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-2 with a 6.11 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP.  Bassitt has worked 28 innings so far this year and he has given up 35 hits (5 homers) and 14 walks while whiffing 23 batters!  He has been getting hit really, really hard lately.  I’m surprised that he didn’t go on the D.L. due to whiplash!

The Oakland A’s place Danny Valencia on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Thursday 21 April 2016 at 10:19 pm

The Oakland A’s have placed 31-year old righty swinging 3B Danny Valencia on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained left hamstring.  Valencia has played in 14 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 15 of 51 (.294 avg, .698 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs.  He has now played in 61 games in his first 2 years with the A’s and he is 67 of 234 (.286 avg, .845 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 11 homers and 39 RBIs.  Lefty swinging Chris Coghlan will likely get the first shot to replace Valencia at 3B while he’s out of action.

The Oakland Athletics place Felix Doubront on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 4 April 2016 at 7:31 pm

The Oakland Athletics  have placed 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Felix Doubront on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained left elbow.  Doubront pitched in 11 games (8 starts) for the A’s last year and he was 2-2 with 1 save, a 5.81 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.  He pitched in 16 games (12 starts) overall for the Blue Jays and A’s last year in which he was 3-3 with 1 save, a 5.50 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.  Doubront has now pitched in 118 games (85 starts) in his first six years in the show and he is 31-26 with 4 saves, a 4.89 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.  No word on who will replace Doubront in the starting rotation yet.

UPDATE:  (4/11/2016) – The Athletics have lost Felix Doubront for the rest of the 2016 season, as he will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow.

The Oakland A’s place Eric Sogard on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 4 April 2016 at 7:25 am

The Oakland A’s have placed 29-year old lefty swinging infielder Eric Sogard on the 15-day disabled list due to a neck injury.  Sogard played in 120 games for the A’s last year and he was 92 of 372 (.247 avg, .598 OPS) with 40 runs scored, 1 homer, 37 RBIs and 6 stolen bases.  He has now played in 435 games in his first six years in the show and he is 289 of 1,210 (.239 avg, .609 OPS) with 138 runs scored, 8 homers, 105 RBIs and 29 stolen bases.  The A’s shouldn’t miss Sogard too much while he’s out of action, as they traded for Jed Lowrie over the winter to replace him at 2B for 2016.

The Oakland Athletics hope to get Henderson Alvarez back in May

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 25 March 2016 at 12:23 pm

The Oakland Athletics signed 25-year old righty starting pitcher Henderson Alvarez over the winter.  He won’t be ready to pitch for them until some time in May as he is rehabbing from back surgery, which cut last season very short for him.  He has also recently had bone chips removed from his right elbow, but it was viewed as a minor procedure.  Alvarez pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the A’s last year and he was 0-4 with a 6.45 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP.  Alvarez has now pitched in 92 games (all starts) in his first five years in the show and he is 27-34 with a 3.80 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  Alvarez was an National League All-Star in 2014, so I think the A’s took a good gamble here on him.

Sam Fuld will likely start the 2016 season on the D.L. for the Oakland A’s

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Monday 21 March 2016 at 9:10 am

34-year old lefty swinging outfielder Sam Fuld will likely start the 2016 season on the disabled list due to a moderate shoulder sprain.  He played in 120 games for the A’s last year and he was 57 for 290 (.197 avg, .569 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 2 homers, 22 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.  Fuld has now played in 180 games in his first two years with the Oakland A’s and he is 96 of 477 (.201 avg, .583 OPS) with 59 runs scored, 5 homers, 41 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.  Fuld is a good defensive player and he hustles, but the A’s should be OK without him….as he just can’t hit.

Jarrod Parker of the Oakland Athletics re-fractures his elbow

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 11 March 2016 at 4:30 pm

27-year old righty Jarrod Parker was trying to convert to a reliever for the Oakland A’s, but he re-fractured his right elbow.  He will probably miss the entire 2016 season and this could end his career.  He has already had two Tommy John surgeries.  Parker pitched in 4 games (all starts) in A+AAA-ball for the A’s last year and he was 2-1 with a 5.79 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  Parker last pitched for the A’s in 2013.  He has pitched in 62 games (all starts) in his first three years for the A’s and he is 25-16 with a 3.68 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP.  Hopefully this isn’t the end of Parker’s career, as he was a very promising pitcher when he came up.

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

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 27 August 2013 at 7:28 am

The A’s have placed 26-year old lefty swinging, starting RF Josh Reddick on the 15-day disabled list due to a sprained right wrist.  Reddick has played in 97 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 70 for 329 (.213 avg, .658 OPS) with 45 runs scored, 10 homers, 46 RBIs and 9 stolen bases.  Despite being a fan favorite, Reddick has really struggled in Oakland this year.  Reddick has played in 52 games at home this year and he is 34 of 176 (.193 avg, .577 OPS) with 23 runs scored, 2 homers, 19 RBIs and 4 stolen bases.  This is going to hurt the A’s as they need all hands on the deck if they are going to make the playoffs in 2013.

The Oakland A’s place Derek Norris on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries by joelapinski on Friday 23 August 2013 at 2:10 pm

The A’s have placed 24-year old righty swinging catcher Derek Norris on the 15-day disabled list due to a fractured left big toe.  Norris has played in 84 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 52 of 224 (.232 avg, .731 OPS) with 33 runs scored, 8 homers, 26 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Norris has now played in 144 games in his first two years with the A’s and he is 94 of 433 (.217 avg, .681 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 15 homers, 60 RBIs and 8 stolen bases.  This was the reason that the A’s felt compelled to deal for Kurt Suzuki.
