      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Now running sprints

      Valencia (hamstring) ran 12 30-yard sprints Thursday, and is also hitting off a pitching machine, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. It was reported earlier in the week that Valencia was hitting off a tee and generally progressing well, and it seems he's successfully ramped up his activity in recent days. Valencia figures to ultimately head out on a short rehab assignment, before returning to the major league roster possibly as soon as May 6.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Hits off tee Monday

      Valencia (hamstring) hit off a tee Monday and appears to be progressing well, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. This is good to hear considering not much was known about Valencia's rehab to this point. There's still not a definitive timetable for the third baseman's return, but the A's are hopeful that they can limit his stay on the disabled list to 15 days. If Valencia can continue progressing well like he has so far, that may be a very reasonable goal.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: MRI confirms hamstring strain

      Valencia's MRI Friday confirmed the initial diagnosis of a mild-to-moderate hamstring strain, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. This confirms what was already widely acknowledged, although the A's have still not released a timetable for Valencia's return. He will be out at least 15 days, and Chris Coghlan and, to a lesser extent, Jed Lowrie, will presumably get the bulk of the at-bats at third base in the meantime.

      Athletics' Danny Valencia: Placed on 15-day DL

      Valencia (hamstring) was sent to the 15-day disabled list Thursday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. An earlier report suggested this move was coming, and now it's been made official. The team hasn't announced a corresponding move to this point, but Hickey suggests Tyler Ladendorf is expected to be recalled Friday. Ladendorf will likely take on a utility role for the Athletics while Chris Coghlan could take on an everyday role at third base until Valencia returns. There's no official timetable yet but that should come out as he begins his progression back from the issue.

      Valencia is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners, John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune reports. Valencia will rest for the first time this season after going 5-for-21 (.238) at the plate over his first six contests. While he's been a platoon player for most of his career, it looks as though the Athletics are fully comfortable with Valencia in an everyday role, as he opened the season in the lineup against three consecutive lefty starters. He'll give way to Chris Coghlan at third base Sunday.

      Valencia hit his third homer of the spring Thursday, a two-run shot off James Paxton.
