  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Keeps hitting in Thursday's loss

    Neuse went 2-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

    Neuse mustered the only multi-hit effort of the afternoon for the punchless Athletics. The 27-year-old has now hit safely in each of his first two games since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, a cautiously optimistic sign he may be able to carry over some of the hot hitting that was a hallmark of his two-week stint with the Aviators.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Singles, scores in return

    Neuse, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, went 1-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Neuse tore through Triple-A arms during his 12-game tenure with the Aviators, posting a .404/.400/.731 slash line in 55 plate appearances. His track record at the major-league level hasn't come close to matching some the prolific stints he's put together in the minors, but perhaps the time away from big-league arms and the Athletics' desperate need for offense will lead to plenty of opportunity and a longer leash over the remainder of the season.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Returns to big leagues

    The Athletics recalled Neuse from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Neuse is back with Oakland after a productive two-week stint in the minors in which he slashed an incredible .404/.400/.731 with eight extra-base hits in 12 games. Though Neuse appears to have settled back into a groove at the plate, the Athletics may not immediately hand him the everyday role he enjoyed earlier in the season before a prolonged slump prompted his demotion to Las Vegas on June 6. The righty-hitting Neuse may instead have to settle for a short-side platoon role initially as he rejoins the Athletics.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Heads to Triple-A

    Neuse was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

    Neuse has struggled mightily at the dish, slashing .087/.143/.087 with three RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored over his last 15 games. He'll now have a chance to get back on track at a lower level. Oakland has yet to reveal a corresponding move.

    Neuse has hit just .065 with two RBI, a run and a stolen base over his last 10 games, and he'll be out of the lineup for a third consecutive matchup. Seth Brown will start at first base and bat cleanup while Luis Barrera takes over in left field.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Sitting Wednesday

    Neuse will sit Wednesday versus the Astros, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Registers stolen base

    Neuse went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and a stolen base in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Astros.

    Neuse's troubles at the dish continued Tuesday, though this was his first game with multiple walks this season. He added his fifth steal in six attempts in the sixth inning. The infielder is sporting a .232/.296/.311 slash line with two homers, 17 RBI, 16 runs scored, three doubles and two triples through 179 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Steps out of lineup

    Neuse is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Plates pair in Saturday's loss

    Neuse went 1-for-4 with an RBI groundout and a run-scoring single in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

    Neuse snapped an 0-for-23 skid with his sixth-inning RBI single that plated Christian Bethancourt. The 27-year-old's was sporting a solid .272 average and .336 on-base percentage as recently as May 18, but those figures have plummeted to .236 and .294, respectively, as a result of his recent funk.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Not starting Tuesday

    Neuse is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Neuse started the last four games after missing three contests with groin tightness, and he'll take a seat Tuesday after going 2-for-18 during that four-game stretch. The 27-year-old enjoyed a hot start to the campaign but has struggled through 20 games in May with a .190/.238/.241 slash line and 27.4 percent strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Hitless in return to action

    Neuse (groin) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a loss to the Twins on Wednesday.

    Neuse was making his return after a three-game absence due to a groin injury. Wednesday's blanking aside, Neuse is generating some encouraging numbers over the first month-plus of the season, as all three components of his .272/.336/.376 slash line are career bests.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Returns to lineup

    Neuse (groin) is starting Wednesday's game against the Twins.

    Neuse missed the last three games due to groin tightness, but he'll be back in action for Wednesday's series finale. Over the six games prior to his absence, he hit .227 with a triple, a double, four runs and a stolen base.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Remains out of lineup

    Neuse (groin) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Neuse will sit out for the second straight game due to tightness in his groin. The 27-year-old was reportedly available off the bench for Monday's contest but never saw the field, so he'll presumably be available again Tuesday.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Battling tight groin

    Neuse is battling groin tightness, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The injury explains why Neuse will be out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday against the Twins. It doesn't appear to be a particularly serious issue, as he'll be available off the bench.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Riding pine Monday

    Neuse isn't starting Monday against the Twins.

    Neuse has recorded hits in five of his last six games and has hit .227 with a triple, a double, four runs, a stolen base, three walks and seven strikeouts during that time. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight matchup while Kevin Smith shifts to third base with Elvis Andrus starting at shortstop.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Out of Sunday's lineup

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Productive despite one hit

    Neuse went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run during a win over the Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

    Neuse hit safely for the fifth time in the last six games in Tuesday's win, but the three outs he made came via strikeout, a reminder of one aspect of the 27-year-old's game that still needs improvement. Neuse now sports a 28.6 percent strikeout rate across 29 games, yet he's still offering fantasy managers plenty via his .291 average, .388 on-base percentage and four stolen bases across 112 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Collects three hits

    Neuse went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs and an RBI in Tuesday's 10-7 loss to the Rays.

    Neuse singled and scored in the first inning, singled again in the seventh and doubled home a run and scored in the 10th for his fourth three-hit game of the season already. The unproven 27-year-old still ranks among the league leaders in hits, average and OBP, and while advanced stats like a .417 BABIP and .279 xBA point to a decline, that doesn't mean Neuse won't continue to play well.
