    Mitch Moreland (wrist) received a cortisone shot last week and still could require surgery this offseason, the team's official site reports.The veteran landed on the injured list due to a tendon issue in his wrist Aug. 31, and he's running out of time to make a return before the end of the regular season. Team trainer Nick Paparesta acknowledged the need for a possible surgery "down the road", although the team and Moreland are set to wait out the effects of the cortisone shot for the time being before any further course of action is determined.

    Athletics' Mitch Moreland: Goes on IL with wrist tendinitis

    Mitch Moreland was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with left wrist tendinitis, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Moreland hasn't played since going 0-for-3 with a walk and run scored in Thursday's loss to the Yankees, and him not appearing in the last three games seems likely to be due to the wrist issue. His move to the injured list is retroactive to Saturday, so he'll be eligible to be activated Sept. 7, though it's possible he'll require more time to recover. In his absence, Jed Lowrie becomes further cemented as the primary DH against right-handed starters, which should open up more playing time for Tony Kemp at the keystone.
