OF - 62, DH - 2
News
Reddick (back) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rays.

The Athletics continue to take a day-to-day approach with Reddick, who will miss his second straight game after being scratched prior to Saturday's contest with the sore back. Reddick has drawn interest from several teams as the trade deadline approaches, so if the A's are serious about moving him, it's imperative that he gets back on the field during the next week to assuage any concerns clubs might have about his health.

News
Manaea (3-5) pitched eight-scoreless innings, but walked away with a no-decision in Friday's 13-inning affair against the A's. He allowed five hits and struck out five.

Manaea didn't surrender a run for the third since coming off the disabled list on June 29 with a left forearm strain, bringing his ERA to 2.47 in his last five starts. His seven strikeouts were one shy of his career high, and the lefty has now made three consecutive appearances (20 innings) without allowing a walk. Manaea mainly utilized his fastball and changeup -- something he's doing more frequently as the season progresses -- and mixed in his slider. The 24-year-old retired the first 14 batters he faced, striking out six, and saw his ERA drop from 5.13 to 4.61 by the end of the evening.

News
Dull continued his excellent season with two scoreless innings Friday night to lower his ERA under 2.00.

Dull has been particularly effective recently, allowing only two earned runs over his last 25 appearances while striking out a batter per inning. It is worth monitoring Dull closely over the next eight days as he could slide into some save opportunities if the A's move any late inning bullpen pieces at the trade deadline.

News
Neal will not start Sunday against the Rays, MLB.com reports.

He was passed over for the starting nod in favor of Jesse Hahn, who will be brought back from Triple-A Nashville to start the series finale against Tampa Bay. The 27-year-old Neal has struggled in nine appearances with the big club but has posted a 3.21 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 11 starts for Nashville, albeit with a mere 32 strikeouts in 61.2 innings. He will fill a long-relief role for the time being.

News
Vogt (personal) will be activated from the family medical leave list Tuesday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Vogt was placed on the list due to undisclosed family issue Saturday, and by rule he's forced to miss at least three days. He'll return to the team when first eligible Tuesday, meaning the team may opt to send catcher Bruce Maxwell back to Triple-A Nashville.

News
Rodriguez was placed on the 60-day DL Saturday.

Rodriguez's transfer to the 60-day DL opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Bruce Maxwell who was called up on Saturday. Rodriguez was getting shelled before landing on the DL with a rotator cuff strain, allowing 12 earned runs over his last eight appearances (15.43 ERA) dating back to June 16. Although he's yet to resume baseball activities, he's still projected to return sometime in August.

Neck - Probable for Jul 26 (Updated - 7/25/16)
News
Crisp (neck) was able to take batting practice from both sides of the plate before Monday's game, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Crisp has been dealing with the neck issue for some time and has occasionally been limited to hitting from one side of the plate or the other as a result. As such, it's a particularly good sign that he is able to swing from both sides after the neck issue forced him to be scratched from Sunday's contest. He is not in Monday's lineup, but he could potentially be available off the bench and should be considered day-to-day.

News
Semien is not in Friday's lineup against the Rays.

Semien will get the day off for the first time this season after making 96 straight starts to begin 2016. In his place, the club will turn to Arismendy Alcantara at shortstop for Friday's contest versus Jake Odorizzi.

Sonny Gray, #54

News
Gray (4-9) gave up seven runs on nine hits in a loss to the Rays on Thursday. He struck out six without a walk, but allowed two home runs.

Both of those homers were of the solo variety, but the big swings coupled with Tampa rallies conspired to bury Gray again. After looking like a budding star through his first three seasons, Gray's been slumming it with the scrubs this year, as his 5.49 ERA will attest. He can't be trusted anymore this season unless he shows signs of a drastic turnaround, but keeper-league owners looking toward the future may find that he makes for a nice cheap acquisition for next year.

News
Smolinski was 2-for-4 on Saturday night against the Rays, including a game-tying two-run blast in the ninth inning.

Smolinski continues to take advantage of his increased playing time and his average now sits at .324 on the season. He has six homers over only 108 at-bats and his performance on Saturday lifted his OPS over .900. Smolinski has mashed lefties to the tune of an OPS over 1.200 in 2016 in 45 at-bats (he was much better against lefties in 2015 also), but his homer Saturday did come off Alex Colome, his first versus a righty this season.

News
Healy was 1-for-4 on Saturday night against the Rays, but his one hit was a long walk-off homer off Alex Colome.

The homer was Healy's second after being called up by the A's eight days ago. The A's has committed to giving Healy a shot at playing third base every day and he has responded so far with a .281 average with an .866 OPS in his first 32 at-bats. Healy pounded 14 homers in the minor league across Double and Triple-A so far in 2016 and has kept up the hitting in his first week in the majors.

News
Alcantara was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday.

Alcantara logged only two appearances during his latest stint with the Athletics, going 1-for-5 with three strikeouts. The 24-year-old brings value with his ability to steal bases and play multiple positions, but until he shows more improvement with his hit tool, he may have a difficult time sticking in the majors for extended stretches of time.

News
Graveman allowed three earned runs in a complete game win over the Rays on Saturday night.

It appeared that Graveman would be a hard luck loser, but two A's homers in the bottom of the ninth made him a winner. Graveman has been fantastic in his last four starts, going 4-0 with a 2.35 ERA in that stretch. Graveman does not provide a lot of strikeouts (only a 5.69 K/9 on the season), but he has ben effective with his sinker lately and has allowed more than three earned runs only once in his last nine starts. He is next scheduled to toe the rubber on Friday in Cleveland.

News
Hill (blister) is still unable to throw without a protective covering on his left middle finger but the club is optimistic he can start sometime on their upcoming road trip, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Hill's next start is still to be decided, but a disabled list trip seems unlikely at this point. "We're keeping him on the roster for a reason," manager Bob Melvin said. The road trip in question runs from Monday through next Thursday, so unfortunately that leaves a big window of uncertainty for Hill's owners, but he should be expected to make his return at some point before the Athletics return home August 5 against the Cubs.

Madson struck out a pair in a clean ninth inning to earn his 21st save of the season Sunday versus the Rays.

Madson hadn't pitched in a save situation in a week, but he retired the side with relative ease Sunday, needing just 13 pitches (nine strikes) to put away a one-run game. Madson recently went through a rough patch where he blew two consecutive saves and allowed five runs over four innings, but he seems to have moved past that and should maintain his grasp on the closer's role in Oakland.
