Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Hitless in return to action
Piscotty (calf), activated from the injured list earlier in the day, went 0-for-3 in a loss to the Yankees on Tuesday.
The veteran hit well during his rehab stint with Triple-A Las Vegas but couldn't do anything to help a moribund Athletics offense Tuesday. Piscotty filled the DH role in his return, but after playing the outfield in multiple games with the Aviators, he could certainly be back out in the field for the Athletics in short order as well....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Activated from injured list
Oakland activated Piscotty (calf) from the 10-day injured list, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He'll serve as the Athletics' designated hitter and No. 5 hitter in Tuesday's game against the Yankees.
Piscotty had been out since early May with a strained left calf, but he's ready to go after posting an .863 OPS across five rehab games. His .225/.340/.325 line prior to the injury was mediocre at best, but the Athletics don't have a lot of compelling options anywhere in their lineup, so Piscotty could have the chance to carve out a meaningful role upon his return....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Heats up in rehab stint
Piscotty (calf) went 5-for-10 with a hit-by-pitch and two runs in games with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday and Saturday.
The recovering outfielder may well be deemed ready for activation after that encouraging sample, which constituted his third and fourth rehab games with the Aviators. Piscotty has started in right field in two of those contests and seemingly gotten through them without setbacks, so a return to the Athletics may well be imminent.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Another rehab game Friday
Piscotty (calf) will play in another rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday but remains without a timetable for activation, the Associated Press reports.
The veteran outfielder seemed to get through his first two rehab games without issue, filling the role of DH in the first one and playing nearly a full game in right field in the second. Manager Mark Kotsay acknowledged reports on Piscotty have been positive, but a potential activation date has yet to be announced.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Good work in first two rehab games
Piscotty (calf) started both Tuesday's and Wednesday's games against Albuquerque for Triple-A Las Vegas and went 2-for-8 with a walk.
Piscotty logged a full complement of five plate appearances as the designated hitter Tuesday. He then started in right field and took four more at-bats Wednesday prior to being subbed out for a defensive replacement late. The veteran outfielder appears to have gotten through both tests setback-free, although the Athletics may want to give him another game or two to corroborate his health before activation is considered....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Beginning rehab Tuesday
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay confirmed that Piscotty (calf) will join Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday for the start of his rehab assignment, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty hasn't played for the Athletics since May 6 due to a left calf strain, so he could stay on the rehab assignment through next weekend before making his way back from the 10-day injured list. Seth Brown and Ramon Laureano appear secure as everyday players in Oakland's outfield, but Piscotty could challenge the likes of Luis Barrera, Cristian Pache and Chad Pinder for the other available outfield spot once he's activated....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Rehab assignment nearing
Piscotty (calf) ran the bases at Oakland Coliseum before Friday's game and will do so again Sunday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The veteran outfielder appeared to get through Friday's test without setbacks. If the same holds true Sunday, manager Mark Kotsay says Piscotty is projected to begin a rehab assignment at a yet-to-be-determined affiliate on Tuesday. The team has not yet decided how many minor-league games Piscotty might require before activation, but given he's been on the injured list since May 7, he figures to likely log close to a week's worth of action, at minimum, on the farm....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Continues ramping up activity
Piscotty (calf) is slated to run the bases when the Athletics return to Oakland on Friday, and manager Mark Kotsay confirmed a potential rehab assignment schedule is likely to be formulated if that activity goes well, Molly Burkhardt of MLB.com reports.
The veteran outfielder has already resumed baseball activities, including hitting in the batting cage and off a machine while also shagging flyballs in the outfield. However, Athletics head trainer Nick Paparesta confirmed that because calf injuries tend to have a higher-than-average reinjury rate, the team will remain cautious with how hard it pushes Piscotty....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Making progress toward return
Piscotty (calf) continues to regularly take swings in the batting cage as part of his hitting progression and will remain in Oakland for ongoing rehab work during the Athletics' upcoming road trip, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The veteran outfielder remains without a firm timetable for return according to manager Mark Kotsay, but the Athletics' skipper did say Sunday the team is in process of putting together an updated rehab plan that will allow Piscotty to "do a lot more baseball activity in the near future." Piscotty last saw game action May 6, so a multi-game rehab assignment is a virtual certainty before he's deemed ready for activation.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Yet to resume baseball activities
Manager Mark Kotsay said Saturday that Piscotty (calf) hasn't yet resumed baseball activities, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty has been on the injured list for nearly a week and has been running on a treadmill, but he hasn't been able to increase his activity level. It seems as though the 31-year-old will require more than the minimum of 10 days on the IL, and a better timetable for his return will likely come into focus once he resumes baseball activities....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Leaves game with calf issue
Piscotty left Friday's loss to the Twins in the second inning after getting thrown out at the plate and is considered day-to-day with calf tightness.
The outfielder singled to lead off the frame and stole a base with two outs to get himself into scoring position, but Piscotty appeared to slow down after rounding third on an Elvis Andrus single and Trevor Larnach's throw from left field beat him easily. The 31-year-old was starting his fifth straight game before suffering his latest injury, but with Ramon Laureano due back from his suspension Sunday, Piscotty's playing time was likely about to dwindle even if he were healthy....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: IL move official
The Athletics officially placed Piscotty on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a left calf strain, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
As expected, Piscotty's move to the IL frees up a spot on the 26-man active roster for fellow outfielder Ramon Laureano, who was reinstated from the restricted list after completing the 80-game suspension he received last August. The return of Laureano means that Piscotty may not have a clear path to an everyday role even when the latter moves past the calf strain. Whenever he's healthy, Piscotty will likely have to battle Seth Brown and Chad Pinder for starts in left field.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Heading to injured list
Piscotty will be placed on the 10-day injured list with a Grade 1 calf strain Saturday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The 31-year-old was removed from Friday's game against the Twins after hurting his calf while running the bases, and he underwent an MRI that revealed a Grade 1 strain. Once Piscotty is cleared to return, he'll likely see a decrease in playing time since Ramon Laureano (suspension) is slated to make his season debut Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Undergoes MRI
Piscotty underwent an MRI on his left calf Saturday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty left Friday's game against the Twins with a calf issue after injuring himself while running the bases. The severity of his injury should become clear once the results of the MRI are known, though he's likely on the verge of a decrease in playing time regardless of the results with Ramon Laureano set to return from his suspension Sunday....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Fourth straight start
Piscotty will start in right field and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Rays, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty has produced only one hit while getting on base at a modest .300 clip over the past three games, but that won't stop him from getting his fourth consecutive start in right field Wednesday. However, with Ramon Laureano (suspension) eligible to make his season debut Sunday, Piscotty looks to be the Oakland outfielder most at risk of losing out on at-bats in the near future....

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Homers in win
Piscotty went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 2-0 win Sunday over Texas.
Piscotty provided all of the game's offense with one swing of the bat in the fourth inning. It was the first home run of the season for the 31-year-old and he has extra-base hits in both games since returning from the COVID-19 injured list. The outfielder has a solid .876 OPS for the season which includes a .400 OBP. He has hit fifth in the Oakland lineup in both games since his return.... See More ... See Less

The veteran outfielder sports an impressive .278 average and .381 on-base percentage over his first 21 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
