  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Sitting for nightcap

    Pache will sit for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels.

    Pache went 0-for-1 with a pair of walks in the afternoon game. Ramon Laureano slides to center field for the nightcap, with Luis Barrera starting in right.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Heads to bench

    Pache is not in the lineup Monday against the Tigers, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Pache has earned plenty of chances up to this point, starting 25 of Oakland's first 28 games, but how much of a role he'll hold onto now that Ramon Laureano is back from his PED suspension is unclear. Pache certainly hasn't made a strong case for everyday at-bats, hitting just .169/.187/.270, though his 48.5 percent hard-hit rate sits in the 84th percentile and suggests potential for a fair amount of improvement considering that his 25.3 percent strikeout rate isn't too far from average. He'll sit Monday, with Laureano sliding to center field and Luis Barrera starting in right.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Sits Sunday

    Pache is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians.

    Seth Brown will step in as the Athletics' center fielder while Pache sits for the first time in four games. The 23-year-old rookie is slashing .203/.225/.333 with two home runs, no stolen bases, nine runs and six RBI in his first 71 plate appearances with Oakland.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Laces first big-league triple

    Pache went 1-for-4 with a triple in a win over the Giants on Wednesday.

    Pache's seventh-inning three-bagger was the first of his career and extended his on-base streak to six games. The young outfielder has shown some signs of life at the plate in what is currently his second-longest big-league stint, knocking a pair of home runs in addition to Wednesday's triple and an April 10 double.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Resting Sunday

    Pache is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.

    Pache will sit for only the second time this season while the Athletics give Mickey McDonald a look in center field. Though the 23-year-old Pache has brought quality defense to the Oakland outfield, he's not making much of a fantasy splash with a .208 average, two home runs, no steals, seven runs and six RBI over 54 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Launches second homer

    Pache went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Orioles on Thursday.

    Pache opened the scoring on the night with a 381-foot solo blast in the third to left field, his second round tripper of the season. The 23-year-old continues to handle an everyday role in center field while Ramon Laureano finishes off his suspension, and although his .208/.208/.354 slash line leaves plenty to be desired, his current 22.9 percent strikeout rate is a welcome improvement from the 36.8 percent figure he generated over 68 plate appearances with Atlanta in 2021.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Launches game-winning homer

    Pache went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-5 win over the Blue Jays.

    With the score tied 5-5 in the top of the ninth inning, Pache drove a hanging slider from Julian Merryweather over the wall in right-center field for the deciding runs. The homer was the first of the season for Pache and just the second of the young outfielder's MLB career, but he's off to a solid start to his Oakland tenure, batting .267 (8-for-30) with five runs and four RBI through nine games.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Receives rest day

    Pache is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    After starting each of the first four games of the season, Pache will cede his spot in center field to Seth Brown on Tuesday. Pache brings most of his value to the Athletics through his stellar defense in center field, but he's at least been serviceable at the dish to begin the season. He's gone 4-for-15 with a double and three runs scored thus far.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Multi-hit effort in win

    Pache went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in a win over the Phillies on Sunday.

    The first multi-hit effort of Pache's career came at a timely juncture, as it played a part in helping the Athletics avoid a season-opening three-game sweep at the hands of the Phillies. The 23-year-old, who's filling the everyday center field role until Ramon Laureano completes his suspension, has hit safely in two of his first three games.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Singles in opener

    Pache started in center field and went 1-for-3 in a loss to the Phillies on Friday.

    Pache's defense is already elite, but questions linger about his bat at this nascent stage of his big-league career. Therefore, it was encouraging to at least see him reach safely in his first game of what is expected to be at least a month-long starting stint while Ramon Laureano completes his suspension. The 23-year-old's longest majors stint to date came last season in Atlanta, when he produced a forgettable .111/.152/.206 slash line across 68 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Secures roster spot

    Pache has officially made the Athletics' Opening Day roster, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Pache's exact role hasn't been announced, but the door appears to be open for him to be the primary center fielder for the rebuilding squad. Pache struggled significantly at the plate in 22 games for Atlanta last season, hitting .111/.152/.206, and he was merely a league-average bat at the Triple-A level, hitting .265/.330/.414 with a 27.5 percent strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Chance for starting job to open '22

    Pache is a candidate to open the season as the starting center fielder with Ramon Laureano (suspension) unavailable the first 27 games, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    The recent trade acquisition arrived in Oakland with a well-deserved reputation as an elite defender, even as questions linger about the big-league readiness of his bat. Pache hasn't done much to dispel those worries in Cactus League play just yet -- he's hitting .167 over his first 12 spring plate appearances -- but he's posted averages of .265 or higher in every minor-league stint longer than one game during a professional career that dates back to 2016.

  • Athletics' Cristian Pache: Shipped to Athletics

    Pache was sent from Atlanta to Oakland alongside Shea Langeliers, Ryan Cusick and Joey Estes on Monday, with Matt Olson heading the other way, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Pache appeared to have the chance to push for a temporary starting role in Atlanta while Ronald Acuna recovers from a torn ACL, though he could have a similar opportunity in Oakland with Ramon Laureano suspended for roughly the first month of the year. While there could be at-bats available, it's unclear if Pache is the favorite to win them, as he owns an uninspiring .119/.157/.209 slash line in 72 major-league plate appearances. He's still just 23 years old and has a very strong defensive reputation, but his bat needs a lot of development for him to be an interesting fantasy option even if he does wind up starting early in the year.

  • Braves' Cristian Pache: Removed from NLCS roster

    Pache was removed from the NLCS roster Thursday.

    Pache made just one appearance off the bench during the NLCS. He'll now be removed from the roster after Jorge Soler (illness) was activated by Atlanta on Thursday.

  • Braves' Cristian Pache: Added to NLDS roster

    Pache was added to Atlanta's NLDS roster Tuesday with Jorge Soler landing on the COVID-19 injured list.

    Even though Pache was added to the roster, Guillermo Heredia is the one who replaces Soler in the Game 4 lineup. Pache will likely only be used as a defensive replacement unless a game goes deep into extra innings.
