News
Athletics manager Bob Melvin made a difficult decision Sunday, optioning pitcher Kendall Graveman to Triple-A, pushing Jesse Chavez back into the starting rotation. He was expected to begin the season as a reliever, but Melvin is confident Chavez can get the job done as a start, reports CSN Bay Area.

"Not only is he able to (start) on a moment's notice, he showed what he's capable of doing in the first half of last year," manager Bob Melvin said. "He was as good as a lot of the guys on our team that (were) All-Stars. We’re lucky to have a guy like Jesse Chavez."

Chavez, who has made one start this season with an 0-1 record and a 0.71 ERA in 12 2/3 innings, won't change anything in his approach.

"It's just a different title and role," Chavez said. "That's how I look at it. I've still gotta go out there and do my job. Throw strikes and give us the best chance to win, and go as deep as I can in the ballgame."

Athletics manager Bob Melvin likes what he's got in prospect Max Muncy, who played in his first game after being called up Saturday. Melvin expects to primarily use Muncy at third base with his infield battling a multitude of injuries, reports MLB.com.

"He can play a little first, he can play a little third, and with [Eric Sogard] being able to play all the positions, it's probably going to be mostly at third," said Melvin. "He's a grinder. He made an impression right away. You know he can hit, and he's coming in here swinging the bat well. We've always felt he was quite the hitter.

"Moved him over to third to make him a little bit more versatile, especially with [Matt] Olson in the system. We like what we saw this spring."

Muncy went 1 for 4 in the game with a single and a strikeout.

Lawrie hit his knee on the bullpen mound during Friday's game and had soreness. He assured the team that he was able to play, but manager Bob Melvin decided to give him a rest, per CSN Bay Area

The team will reevaluate Lawrie on Sunday.

News
Athletics lefty reliever Eric O'Flaherty has struggled early this season, but manager Bob Melvin is still optimistic about the way the southpaw has pitched, CSN Bay Area reports.

"The movement’s there," Melvin said. "The ball is down, (though) maybe not as many strikes. … We feel good about (O’Flaherty). It’s just that sometimes there are going to be periods when it’s not working out. This is one of them right now. You can’t just walk away from it. Plus, you only have so many guys down there."

O'Flaherty has allowed eight earned runs in 6 1/3 innings while striking out seven and walking four in his first seven appearances.

News
Reliever Ryan Cook, who was recalled by the Athletics on Sunday, wasted no time in providing a boost to the Oakland bullpen, pitching one perfect inning during the team's loss to the Astros. 

Cook struggled mightily in spring training, with an 16.88 Cactus League ERA. That earned him a ticket to Triple-A Nashville, where he threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings before being recalled. 

He retired the side in quick order in the seventh inning, with a groundout, flyout and strikeout. 

"Just getting back to being myself and throwing the baseball the way I know I can," Cook said. "I feel confident in all my pitches right now, so hopefully I can get on a roll and help the team in whatever way they see fit."

Athletics closer Tyler Clippard had a Sunday to forget in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros. Clippard came on with a 6-5 lead in the eighth, but quickly saw issues as he allowed the first two batters he faced to reach safely in the ninth.

After striking out George Springer, Clippard intentionally walked Jed Lowrie to get to Evan Gattis. But Clippard gave up a huge double to center field, over Sam Fuld's head, to score two and give Houston the lead. 

"We're having trouble with the bullpen. Defensively, we're giving teams extra outs. All those things end up costing you," manager Bob Melvin said to Bay Area News Group.

The Astros finished things off in the bottom half of the ninth to saddle Clippard with his second loss of the year. He now boasts a 3.24 ERA in 8 1/3 innings of work.

"It was the best I've felt," Doolittle said.

Doolittle tore his rotator cuff this past January.

Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz allowed five runs, three earned, on six hits in five innings of work in Oakland's 7-6 loss to the Astros Sunday.

Pomeranz's issues began in the third when the first two batters of the inning reached safely before he walks Jed Lowrie to load the bases for Evan Gattis, who then singled to right to bring home two runs. Colby Rasmus then singled to right to bring home one more run in the inning.

The struggles continued in the fourth when Jake Marisnick ripped a two-run shot over the left center field wall, scoring Jason Castro. He would last one more inning before getting the hook.

Pomeranz, who remains 1-2 on the year, now boasts a 4.50 ERA in 22 innings. He will look to get back on track Saturday against the Rangers.
