Athletics' John Axford: No firm date to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) still doesn't have a firm date on when he can resume throwing and will also need to undergo strengthening exercises, John Hickey of Bay Area News Group reports.

The veteran reliever, thought to be a potential closer candidate alongside Santiago Casilla and Ryan Madson at one point, is yet to throw a pitch in the regular season due to his shoulder strain. Without a timetable for when he can even start throwing, his return date appears to be at least a week away at the earliest.

Athletics' John Axford: MRI confirms shoulder strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford's MRI on Thursday revealed there was no damage beyond a shoulder strain, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Axford's MRI results yielded good news Thursday, though he'll refrain from throwing a baseball for the next week while he continues to recover. It appears he could be ready to return to action shortly after his minimum 10-day stay on the DL is up.

Athletics' John Axford: Headed for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Axford was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, though it can be backdated a few days because he didn't appear in either of the Athletics' first two games. He apparently felt shoulder discomfort while warming up Tuesday. Manager Bob Melvin is hopeful the 34-year-old can return next week, though more should be known after his test results are revealed.

Athletics' John Axford: Hits DL with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained shoulder, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.

Axford hadn't pitched in either of the Athletics' first two games, so it seems likely that he may have been nursing the injury coming out of spring training. Though the Athletics' closing situation remains quite unsettled, it's unlikely that Axford will get a chance to throw his hat in the ring for those duties once he's healthy again after submitting an unremarkable 3.97 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 65.2 innings last season.

Athletics' John Axford: Postive outing in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up a hit over a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 11-1 Cactus League win over the Brewers.

Axford took the mound for the first time since March 17 and put lowered his spring ERA to 4.26 with his scoreless inning. The veteran reliever has endured a couple of rough outings this spring, but he's once again expected to play a sizable role in Oakland's bullpen.
