A's summon Aaron Brooks to start Saturday; Max Muncy optioned
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Athletics rookie right-hander Aaron Brooks has been called up and will start Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. Brooks has made four appearances (three starts) since coming over from the Royals in a deal right before the July 31 trade deadline.

His last start came back on August 12, when he was rocked for eight runs over 1 2/3 innings. He pitched in relief two days later and was then sent down to Triple-A. 

To clear room on the roster, infielder Max Muncy was optioned to Triple-A Nashville.

A's SP Felix Doubront (foot) has next start moved back a day
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Athletics pitcher Felix Doubront will have his next start moved back a day, as he is still being bothered by a contusion on his foot.

Doubront sustained the injury in his last outing on Monday when he took a comebacker off of his foot. The injury is not considered serious, but he will have his next start pushed from Sunday to Monday against the Angels, according to Comcast SportsNet California.

A's SP Jesse Chavez coughs up five-run lead, takes loss Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Athletics starter Jesse Chavez did not fare well in his outing against the Mariners on Tuesday. After his team gave him a 5-0 lead, Chavez allowed six runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. 

The A's scored five runs over the first two innings, and looked to be heading towards victory. But things started to fall apart for Chavez when he allowed a solo home run to Nelson Cruz and a two-run shot to Logan Morrison in the fourth inning.

Chavez (7-13, 4.00 ERA) then allowed three more runs to score in the fifth, and the Mariners would not relinquish that lead. 

Chavez has now given up at least four runs in six of his last 10 starts, and he owns a 5.60 ERA over that stretch.

Athletics SP Felix Doubront knocked out by foot contusion
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Athletics starter Felix Doubront was removed after two innings of his Monday start with a right foot contusion, per the San Francisco Chronicle.

Doubront took a line drive off the foot in the first inning. He said after the game, however, that he would make his next start Sunday at Arizona and that the only reason he was taken out was that the foot issue was affecting his release point.
