Covey allowed six runs on four hits with two walks over just two-thirds of an inning, suffering a loss against the Athletics on Saturday.

The 27-year-old's first start since June 5 because of a shoulder injury didn't go very well -- lasting just 32 pitches -- and he couldn't make it through the first inning. His only shorter outing of the season was a relief appearance in which he failed to record any outs April 1. Covey is 1-5 with a 5.92 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 23 strikeouts in 38 innings across 10 appearances (eight starts). His turn in the rotation will come up again Thursday in Kansas City.
