Oblique - Expected to be placed on 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-April (Updated - 3/29/15)
News
Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that outfielder Josh Reddick took three at-bats in a minor-league game Tuesday and felt fine physically, MLB.com reports.

Reddick is recovering from an oblique injury that will cause him to open the season on the 15-day disabled list, but he may be able to return soon after the season begins.

News
Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez told reporters that "the writing is on the wall" and indicated that he'll likely start the season in the bullpen.

"I think they had their minds made up from the beginning. But we'll see what happens," Chavez said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Chavez allowed one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six over six innings of work on Wednesday against the Angels. He posted a 4.50 ERA, a 1.75 WHIP and 12:4 K:BB ratio over 16 innings this spring. If he is demoted to the bullpen as a long reliever and spot starter, the A's will likely go will left-hander Drew Pomeranz as their fifth starter.

Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie hit two home runs in Monday's 11-2 blowout win over the Rockies. 

Lawrie's first home run was of the solo variety hit off of Ryan Arrowood. His second was a three-run shot off of LaTroy Hawkins in the sixth inning. This gives Lawrie four home runs in his last eight games.

News
The Athletics remain hopeful that outfielder Coco Crisp (elbow) will be healthy enough to play Opening Day, MLB.com reports.

"I think it depends on how he feels tomorrow," manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday. "I think it's going to be a pretty good indication on what we need to do."

Melvin said that Crisp was sore Wednesday, and the team will decide Thursday if he'll need to open the season on the disabled list. It's possible he'll play during the team's three-game Bay Bridge Series against the Giants, starting Thursday.

"He's really the one guy on our team that we're not worried too much about at-bats," Melvin said. "If he could play in the Bay Bridge Series, we'd be good with that. Whether he's not, I really don't know yet."

If Crisp does open the season on the disabled list, the Athletics will likely carry outfielder Billy Burns on the Opening Day roster.

Athletics pitcher Barry Zito gave up seven runs on eight hits, including three home runs, over four innings in his final spring training start Tuesday against the Angels.

Zito added two strikeouts and one walk to his totals. He finishes spring training with a 5.03 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings over six appearances.

"My timing was a little off today," Zito said. "Obviously I can paint pictures in my head of what could happen, but that's where this game can take you out of the present moment."

News
Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle continues to progress through his rehab and it will continue Thursday when the closer is scheduled to throw long toss out to 75 feet, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Doolittle, who tore his rotator cuff late in January, still remains without a timetable for his return to the field and has thrown a few times this spring. He went 2-4 last season with 22 saves in 62 2/3 innings.

"To get him out to 75 feet and be aggressive with it, he feels really good about where his arm is right now," manager Bob Melvin said to MLB.com. "It hasn't been sore, no trepidation with what he's doing right now. He's gotten past that first hurdle and our training staff has done a great job putting him in this position."

Athletics pitcher Drew Pomeranz pitched six scoreless innings during Monday's 11-2 blowout win over the Rockies. 

Pomeranz gave up only two hits and one walk while striking out six batters. 

"He pitched well. He pitched really good," Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez said of Pomeranz, via MLB.com. "He was hitting spots. His curveball was effective today, too. He has that big curveball. I've never faced him before. I saw the ball really well coming out of his hands."

Athletics' outfielder Sam Fuld will begin using a device to protect his face at the plate. Fuld took batting practice wearing an attachment for his batting helmet that protects the left side of his face, per SFGate.

Fuld suffered an injured jaw after being hit by a throw while running the bases. 

Fuld returned to the lineup on Tuesday but initially declined to use the device. He tried it on Sunday after veering away from a throw while running to first in Saturday's game.

News
Athletics pitcher Kendall Graveman continues to impress this spring. Sunday, he went 6 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just three hits with three strikeouts and no walks. Manager Bob Melvin loves how the young pitcher has performed this spring, reports MLB.com.

"He doesn't blow you away, although you look at the radar gun and at times we've seen 93, 94 this spring," Melvin said. "But he's a pitcher; he's pretty cerebral in the way he does it.

"He reads swings very well. You know, it's late movement off the barrel of the bat, whether it's sink, whether it's cut, offspeed just enough. But he knows what he's doing and he's aware of what the hitters are trying to do against him."

Graveman has a minuscule 0.74 ERA in five starts this spring.

"There's a reason that he went from [Class] A-ball to the big leagues [in 2014 with Toronto], and then continued to pitch this well for us. It means he's real confident in what he's doing," Melvin said.

Athletics pitcher Scott Kazmir posted another dominant performance Saturday, going 5 1/3 scoreless innings with four strikeouts and just two hits allowed against the White Sox.

Kazmir lowered his ERA to 0.75 with just one start left before the season begins.

"Every pitch felt like I had good feel with it," Kazmir said to Bay Area News Group. "I was able to lock everything down. My changeup was the pitch today.I could get it to either corner. And if it started out down the middle it would wind up in the dirt."

Manager Bob Melvin continues to gush over Kazmir's performances.

"Everything was working, side to side," Melvin said. "He had cadence and rhythm. We wanted to get him to 80 pitches, and we did."
