Athletics' Chris Herrmann: Makes history in return from IL
Herrmann went 1-for-3 with a walk and a grand slam in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Twins.
Sidelined since spring training after undergoing knee surgery, Herrmann was activated from the IL earlier in the day and crushed a Jake Odorizzi fastball in the fourth inning for what proved to be the game-winning homer. Herrmann became the first player in history to hit a grand slam in his first game in an Oakland uniform in the process. With Josh Phegley coming off a .224/.260/.373 performance in June, the door is open for Herrmann to seize the strong side of a catching platoon for the A's.
