News
Manaea was impressive during his stint in a Thursday intrasquad game, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

The A's' projected No. 2 starter looked the most impressive of the team's top trio of arms, avoiding the kind of hard contact that both Sonny Gray and Kendall Graveman fell victim to in their respective intrasquad games. Manaea was so efficient in getting three outs that the inning had to be extended in order for him to get in sufficient work. The 25-year-old southpaw is slated to make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Giants behind Gray.

News
Canha, who missed the majority of last season due to hip surgery, has earned strong praise from manager Bob Melvin for his performance in early workouts, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports. "He worked hard in the offseason. His swing looks good," Melvin said. "He looks like he's in great shape and I think he's out to prove a serious point this year - that he can be a very productive guy at the big league level, as we've seen before."

The 28-year-old saw only 44 plate appearances in 2016 before his injury, which prevented him from building on a solid rookie campaign the season prior. Canha, who's slated to platoon with newcomer Matt Joyce in right field this season, will draw the start in left field and hit cleanup in Saturday's Cactus League opener versus the Cubs.

News
Hendriks has informed Team Australia that he may be available if they advance to the second round of the World Baseball Classic, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Hendriks withdrew from the WBC on Saturday because he doesn't feel he's where he needs to be for high-intensity games. The decision appears to be advisory, as the right-hander spent a good portion of last season on the DL with elbow inflammation. Whether he plays or not, Hendriks appears to be focused on preparing for the season in the most efficient way possible.

News
Gray had mixed results in his one inning of work in intrasquad play Thursday, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

The A's' ace is slated to open Monday's Cactus League tilt versus the Giants, and also got in some game action Thursday by firing one frame in an intrasquad tussle. Gray gave up a run on an RBI double to right-center by Mark Canha, but also fanned Ryon Healy with an impressive breaking ball. Manager Bob Melvin was pleased with Gray's effort overall despite the aforementioned hiccup, and the 27-year-old will try to build on Thursday's results with a strong outing Monday.

News
Doolittle threw his first bullpen session of spring training Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Plagued by shoulder issues over the past two seasons, Doolittle appears to be getting back on track as spring games begin. The left-hander has shown he still has potential, posting a 3.23 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and a 45:8 K:BB ratio in 44 games last year. Barring any setbacks, expect Doolittle to compete for a setup role in the Oakland bullpen when he returns to game action.

News
Casilla still has not reported to camp, but the A's are hopeful he will be able to report within 1-2 days, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Casilla has been delayed by a visa issue as he returns from his home in the Dominican Republic. Signed as a free agent this offseason, the reliever is expected to compete for a setup role behind closer Ryan Madson after spending the last seven seasons with the crosstown Giants. Even if Casilla does report to camp, he won't be there long. The World Baseball Classic begins for the Dominican on March 9.

News
Cotton, the frontrunner for the fourth spot in the rotation, was impressive again Friday, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

The young right-hander has been wowing in early workouts and continued his impressive stretch of performances in Friday's session. Cotton's dominance of hitters led manager Bob Melvin to remark that "the deception just stands out with him. He's got an assortment of breaking pitches." Cotton is slated to see his first Cactus League action Tuesday versus the Indians.

News
Graveman, who'll start Sunday's Cactus League matchup versus the Angels, gave up some solid contact in Thursday's intrasquad game, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports.

Oakland's projected No. 3 starter got matters off on the wrong foot by surrendering a leadoff triple to Rajai Davis, and Stephen Vogt eventually drove him home with a single. Graveman was able to get Matt Joyce looking on a fastball later in the frame, but the consensus was that he gave up plenty of hard contact in his 15-pitch outing. The right-hander will try to bounce back with a more consistent effort Sunday, when he'll likely have a chance to fire at least two innings.
