      Athletics' Dustin Garneau: Hits safely in season finale

      Dustin Garneau went 1-for-4 with a run in Sunday's season-ending 5-2 win over the Rangers.The veteran catcher slashed just .159/.288/.250 over the 52 plate appearances he logged with the Oakland Athletics since an Aug. 4 trade from the Rockies. Garneau is under team control for the next two seasons, but as a journeyman backstop who'll turn 31 during the 2018 campaign, he may serve as no more than organizational depth at Triple-A Nashville while Josh Phegley and Bruce Maxwell man the catcher position at the big-league level.

      Athletics' Dustin Garneau: Smacks first homer with Oakland

      Dustin Garneau hit a solo home run and walked in his two plate appearances before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the top of the seventh inning in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Angels.With the San Pedro, Calif. native playing close to home in Anaheim, Garneau delighted his friends and family in attendance with his first home run as a member of the Oakland Athletics. Since joining the team following a waiver claim earlier this month, Garneau has recorded just four hits in 26 at-bats while appearing in 12 games. He'll likely remain on the short end of a platoon at catcher with Bruce Maxwell for now, but Garneau will see his at-bats dry up almost entirely once Josh Phegley (oblique) returns from the 10-day disabled list.

      Athletics' Dustin Garneau: Joins major-league team

      Dustin Garneau was added to the Oakland Athletics' roster Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Oakland claimed Garneau off waivers from Colorado on Friday, seeing him as an upgrade over Ryan Lavarnway at the backup catcher position. Garneau has done very little of note in 68 career games at the big-league level, but he did hit .429/.480/.952 in a small sample against lefties during his time with Triple-A Albuquerque this season.

      Athletics' Dustin Garneau: Claimed by A's

      Dustin Garneau was claimed off waivers by the A's on Friday.Garneau appeared in 22 games with the Rockies this season, hitting .206/.260/.353 with one home run and six RBI. The catcher has spent the majority of the year with Triple-A Albuquerque, tearing up the competition to the tune of a .964 OPS with 10 home runs and 26 RBI in 128 at-bats. He will likely serve as organizational depth for Oakland moving forward at the Triple-A level with Nashville, but could earn a promotion by the time September rolls around.

      Rockies' Dustin Garneau: Meager production in backup role

      Dustin Garneau is hitting .171 with one home run and four RBI over 41 at-bats to start the season entering Sunday's contest against the Diamondbacks.With Tom Murphy (forearm) currently on the 10-day disabled list, Garneau has stepped into the backup catcher role. His production behind Tony Wolters hasn't been anything to write home about, evidenced by his .569 OPS and five extra-base hits. Until Murphy's return, he'll earn reps consistent with that of an occasional starter.

      Rockies' Dustin Garneau: Smacks first homer of season

      Dustin Garneau went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Friday against the Dodgers.Garneau's first blast of the season broke up a 1-1 tie, leading to a rare low-scoring victory in Coors Field. Despite his solid performance, it appears he'll be on the short side of the platoon until Tom Murphy (forearm) returns to action, which could be in the near future.

      Rockies' Dustin Garneau: Likely to open year in majors

      Dustin Garneau will likely open the year as the Colorado Rockies' backup catcher following news that Tom Murphy (forearm fracture) will be out for 4-to-6 weeks.Murphy should return in mid-to-late April, so Garneau will have at least a couple weeks of action against southpaws, but Tony Wolters figures to get almost all of the starts when the Rockies face a right-handed pitcher. Garneau has a career .222/.265/.289 slash line against lefties, and hardly qualifies as a short-term option in most formats.

      Rockies' Dustin Garneau: Likely to start season in minors

      Dustin Garneau is a long-shot to make the Opening Day roster for the Colorado Rockies, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.Manager Bud Black stated that top prospect Tom Murphy and incumbent catcher Tony Wolters will enter the season with "shared duties" behind the plate, seemingly leaving Garneau out of the picture entirely. That being said, the 29-year-old is likely the next in line for major league innings if either Murphy or Wolters go down with an injury, although it will likely be in a backup role given his inability to hit major league pitching during two stints with Colorado.
