    • Manager Bob Melvin said Thursday that it will be tough for Smith (forearm) to return this season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The Athletics announced Monday that Smith would be shut down for two weeks even though an MRI didn't reveal any structural damage. Melvin's update casts some doubt as to whether Smith will be able to get ready in time to return for the end of the season. More clarity surrounding the situation could come once the right-hander is able to resume throwing.

    • Smith (forearm) won't throw for another two weeks, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Smith was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a forearm injury, and while his MRI showed no ligament damage, the Athletics will shut him down for at least the next 14 days. A timeline for his return should become more clear once he gets the green light to begin a throwing program.

    • The Athletics placed Smith (forearm) on the 10-day injured list Sunday. Oakland hasn't provided a timeline for Smith to return from the injury, which can often be a precursor to Tommy John surgery. James Kaprielian was recalled from the Athletics' alternate site and will join the bullpen as a replacement for Smith, who had posted a tidy 2.25 ERA and 0.67 WHIP to go with 13 strikeouts in 12 innings over six appearances.

    • Smith suffered a forearm strain Saturday and is expected to head to the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Smith struggled in his outing Saturday against San Francisco, allowing three runs in 1.2 innings, and the injury was seemingly part of the problem. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday, at which point his recovery timeline will become clearer.

    • Smith allowed one hit over three scoreless innings to earn the save in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Astros. He struck out four and did not issue a walk. Smith has been one of the stories of the season so far for Oakland, as he has excelled to the tune of 10 strikeouts and a 0.48 WHIP over 10.1 scoreless innings, earning two wins and now a save. The right-hander was DFA'd by the Giants in February and traded to the A's for cash considerations. He's been with six different big-league organizations.
