Yoenis Cespedes sits Thursday due to thumb injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes was held out of the starting lineup Thursday against the Astros after leaving Wednesday's game due to a thumb injury. Brandon Moss was in left field Thursday for Oakland.

Manager Bob Melvin said Cespedes might be available off the bench Thursday and could be back in the lineup Friday at Texas.

Cespedes has been on a roll out of the All-Star break, hitting safely in his first five games. He is batting .381 (8 for 21) with two doubles, two home runs, five RBI and six runs in that span.

A's remove Jim Johnson from roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Athletics made a surprising move Thursday, as reliever Jim Johnson was designated for assignment.

Johnson began the season as the A's closer after being acquired in a December trade with Baltimore. Johnson was removed from the closer's role after a few weeks and had been pitching in middle relief. However, his performance lately had been pretty bad. He's allowed 12 runs (11 earned) in his last five outings.

The move comes as a bit of a surprise since Johnson's name has been linked to trade rumors. In fact, he was almost traded to Miami in early June and it's reported the Marlins are still interested in the veteran reliever.

Sean Doolittle tosses perfect inning in 15th save
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Athletics closer Sean Doolittle earned his 15th save Wednesday, striking out one in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 9-7 win over the Astros.

Doolittle picked up his first save of the second half, though was pitching for the third time in a four-day span. Another clean sheet gives the breakout performer a 2.70 ERA, 0.64 WHIP and 67:3 K:BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings.
