Athletics' Sean Manaea: Lifted prematurely with shoulder tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manaea was pulled after just two innings Wednesday due to left shoulder tightness, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Something was obviously up with Manaea, as his velocity was noticeably down from his normal 93-95 mph range, sitting around 90 mph for most of the night. He exited after just 34 pitches, giving up three runs (all in the second inning) on four hits while striking out one. It's unclear how serious the injury is at this point, but a trip to the DL -- however brief -- wouldn't be surprising. Consider him day-to-day for now, but status should be updated once the Athletics provide more information.

Athletics' Chris Bassitt: Rehab assignment scheduled for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bassitt (elbow) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with High-A Stockton over the weekend, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Bassitt continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery, and he remains hopeful to return to the big leagues this summer. He'll throw either three innings or 45 pitches during his first rehab appearance and should continue to ramp up his activity if all goes well.

Athletics' Ryan Madson: Takes second loss of season Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Madson (0-2) gave up the game-winning run on two hits in two-thirds of an inning in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

The veteran reliever fired nine of his 11 pitches for strikes but couldn't quite escape the 11th inning unscathed, surrendering a game-winning single to Kole Calhoun with two out. Madson had only given up one other run through the eight appearances he'd made prior to Tuesday, so he continues to be one of manager Bob Melvin's most trusted late-inning options and has already compiled a pair of holds and one save.

Athletics' Jaff Decker: On base twice out of leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Decker went 1-for-3 with a walk in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

The 27-year-old has now reached safely in seven of the nine games he's played this season, and he's done it on multiple occasions within four of those contests. Decker is projected for a string of starts in place of Rajai Davis (hamstring), meaning he'll have a chance to build on the solid .280/.419/.400 line he's compiled over his first 33 plate appearances.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Pinch-hit homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley smacked a pinch-hit solo home run to account for Oakland's only run in Tuesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

The reserve backstop picked a fine time for his first long ball of the season, snapping a scoreless tie in the 10th inning. While the Angels went on to tie and eventually win the game in the 11th, the homer extended a modest offensive surge for Phegley, who's now hit safely in three of his last four games and compiled three RBI over that span.
