Maxwell was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Sean Manaea (shoulder) is set to come off the disabled list Monday, so the A's decided to make room for him by sending Maxwell back to Triple-A Nashville. During his latest stint in the majors, Maxwell played in six games and went 2-for-14 (.143).
Maxwell (head) has passed all necessary impact tests to be cleared for game action, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Maxwell left Wednesday's game as a precautionary measure, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
It had been previously reported that Maxwell has taken numerous foul balls to the mask over recent games and that this may have been linked to his early departure Wednesday. That turned out to be the case, as the A's pulled Maxwell from Wednesday's game to keep him from being significantly injured. Although the team will likely proceed with caution, Maxwell should be available in the near future.
Maxwell was pulled from Wednesday's game against the Angels in the top of the fourth inning due to an undisclosed injury, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports.
The Athletics have yet to provide a reason behind Maxwell's early departure, but Lee speculates that it could be related to the fact that the backstop has taken multiple foul balls to the mask over the last few games. Stephen Vogt stepped in to replace Maxwell behind the dish. Look for the Athletics to provide an update on Maxwell's status after the contest.
