Athletics' Jaycob Brugman: Laces RBI single in Cactus League loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brugman laced an eighth-inning RBI single in his only at-bat in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League loss to the Angels.

The 25-year-old prospect plated Ryan Lavarnway in the seventh with his hit, bringing the A's within two runs of the Angels at that point. Brugman is a versatile asset capable of playing all three outfield positions and is getting his first taste of major league experience in spring training. He's likely to start the season at Triple-A Nashville but could naturally go a long way to making a lasting impression with a strong showing during the exhibition slate.

Athletics' Santiago Casilla: Still not in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Casilla has still not reported to camp due to visa issues, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This is starting to become a mild concern for both parties, since Casilla is planning on participating in the World Baseball Classic with his hometown Dominican Republic. Although Casilla isn't at fault, the longer it takes him to report to camp, the less confident the A's will feel with him participating in the WBC.

Athletics' Mark Canha: Smacks RBI double in Cactus League loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canha went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and walk in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League loss to the Angels.

Canha brought home Eric Young, Jr. and Alejandro De Aza in the third with a double to left, drawing the A's even with the Angels at 1-1 at the time. The right fielder, who'll platoon with offseason acquisition Matt Joyce this season, hit out of the two-hole Sunday and has looked strong this spring after missing the majority of 2016 with a hip injury.

Athletics' Daniel Gossett: Strong showing in Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gossett, who was a last-minute starter after the A's decided to rearrange their pitching schedule, fired two scoreless innings in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League loss to the Angels. He also walked two. "He impressed everybody in the organization last year, so in talking about that fifth starter, who knows?" manager Bob Melvin said. "This is a nice little feather in his camp to start a game against a division team, our opener at home."

The 24-year-old right-hander, currently the team's No. 10-ranked prospect, got the call in the wake of Sonny Gray dropping out of the WBC due to an insurance issue. Gossett went a combined 10-6 with a 2.69 ERA at Class-A Stockton, Double-Midland and Triple-A Nashville last season, while leading the organization with 151 strikeouts. The promising prospect boasts an impressive arsenal consisting of a fastball, curveball, changeup and the latest addition, a cutter. If he's unable to ultimately secure the fifth starter role, Gossett could well be a late season call-up with another impressive campaign in the minors.

Athletics' Matt Chapman: Smacks two-run blast in Cactus League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman, a 2014 first-round pick and non-roster invitee, went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-3 Cactus League loss to the Cubs.

The A's are hoping to give Chapman some much-needed seasoning against big league arms this spring, and he got off to a positive start in that regard by launching a two-run blast off reliever Jose Rosario in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old did go down on strikes in another one of his at-bats, an area of his game that both Chapman and the A's are looking for considerable improvement in during his spring training tenure. Over 514 combined at-bats at the Double-A and Triple-A levels last season, Chapman whiffed at a 30.6 percent clip, a number that needs to come down if he hopes to take over the starting third base job in 2018.
