The Oakland A’s have called up 26-year old righty starting pitcher Jesse Hahn and he will start tonight’s game for them.  He has pitched in 5 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the A’s so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 1.93 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP.  He has also pitched in 2 games (both starts) for the A’s so far this year in which he is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  Hahn might get to stay a while longer this time around if he pitches well.  To make room on the roster and in the rotation, the A’s have sent 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Eric Surkamp to AAA.  Surkamp has pitched in 5 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-3 with a 6.55 ERA and a 1.96 WHIP.

22-year old switch-hitting outfielder Skye Bolt came into this season as the Oakland A’s #23 prospect according to Baseball America.  Bolt has played in 25 games in A-ball so far this year and he is 25 of 86 (.291 avg, .805 OPS) with 14 runs scored, 2 homers, 11 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  Bolt has now played in 77 games in his first two years in the minors and he is 68 of 267 (.255 avg, .739 OPS) with 40 runs scored, 6 homers, 30 RBIs and 5 stolen bases.  I want to see him get to the majors with the A’s because of his cool name!

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by joelapinski on Monday 16 May 2016 at 12:03 pm

31-year old righty swinging 3B Danny Valencia of the Oakland A’s feasted on Tampa Bay Rays’ pitchers over the weekend!  Valencia was 3 for 5 with 3 runs scored, 3 homers and 5 RBIs in the A’s 7-6 win over the Rays at Tropicana Field yesterday.  His last homer was a 2-run shot off of Steve Geltz in the ninth inning to give the A’s a 7-6 lead!  Valencia played in 3 games over the weekend against the Rays and he was 6 for 12 (.500 avg) with 5 runs scored, 5 homers and 7 RBIs.  Valencia has now played in 20 games for the A’s so far this year and he is 25 of 73 (.342 avg, .966 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 5 homers and 10 RBIs.  Valencia has now played in 67 games in his first two years with the A’s and he is 77 of 256 (.301 avg, .909 OPS) with 44 runs scored, 16 homers and 47 RBIs.  It looks like Valencia has found a home in Oakland!

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Friday 13 May 2016 at 3:22 pm

The Oakland A’s have called up 30-year old righty swinging 1B/OF Matt McBride for the second time this year.  He didn’t play for them the first time around.  McBride has played in 20 games in AAA-ball for the A’s so far this year and he is 11 of 63 (.175 avg, .532 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 1 homer and 4 RBIs.  He has played in 72 games in his first three years in the show and he is 30 for 151 (.199 avg, .532 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 4 homers and 17 RBIs.  I don’t see much upside here.

The Oakland A’s call up Zach Neal

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,The Minors by joelapinski on Wednesday 11 May 2016 at 12:21 pm

The Oakland A’s have called up 27-year old righty starting pitcher Zach Neal.  Neal pitched in 6 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the A’s so far this year and he is 4-1 with a 2.70 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP.  He has given up 33 hits and 3 walks while whiffing 20 batters in his first 36 2/3 innings this year.  He has now pitched in 148 games (131 starts) in his first seven years in the minors and he is 49-47 with a 3.72 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.  No one has said what his role with the team will be, but I would be shocked if he’s not starting the next time that 24-year old lefty Sean Manaea‘s spot comes up, as he was brutal last night against the Red Sox.  He has pitched in 3 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 11.37 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP!

UPDATE:  (5/13/2016) – The A’s have sent Zach Neal to AAA.  He pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the A’s this time around and he was 0-0 with a 9.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.  He should be back later this year.

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 call up Eric Surkamp

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

The Oakland A’s have called up 28-year old lefty starting pitcher Eric Surkamp.  Surkamp has pitched in 4 games (all starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 0-2 with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.91 WHIP.  He has also pitched in 2 games (both starts) in AAA-ball for the A’s in which he is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP.  He will move right back into the rotation for the A’s, but how long he stays there will be up to him.  To make room on the roster for Surkamp, the A’s have sent 26-year old lefty reliever Daniel Coulombe back to AAA.  He pitched in 1 game out of the pen for the A’s this time around 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.
