Athletics' Barry Zito gives up two runs in return
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Barry Zito allowed two runs in his return to the mound on Thursday.

Zito, who did not pitch in the majors last season, is attempting a comeback with the A's. He's considered a long shot for the rotation, but could be used in a relief role based on how he performs this spring. 

In his first start, Zito gave up two runs on two hits over two innings. He struck out two, but did not issue any walks during the outing. Zito's big mistake was a changeup to Mike Olt in the second inning. Other than that, he was solid.

Zito, 36, posted a 5.74 ERA over 133 1/3 innings in 2013.

Athletics' Marcus Semien stays hot on Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics infielder Marcus Semien cannot be stopped this spring.

After going 3 for 3 with two home runs on Tuesday, Semien again reached in all his plate appearances on Wednesday. He wasted no time getting to work, singling in two runs in the first inning. Semien would walk in his next appearance before driving in another run on a single in his final at-bat. 

Semien, who has yet to make an out this spring, downplayed his success, saying "I'm just getting good pitches to hit right now." The 24-year-old hit .234/.300/.372 over 231 at-bats last season.
