Athletics' Matt Joyce: Plates pair in extra-innings loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 2-for-3 with a two-run single in the Athletics' extra-innings loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.

Joyce drew the start in right field, his first since returning from an extended stay on the disabled list due to a lumbar strain. The veteran outfielder produced his first multi-hit tally since July 1 in the process, but with such sparse playing time, his fantasy value has taken a significant hit.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Returns from DL on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce (back) was activated off the 10-day disabled list Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Joyce has been on the shelf since early July with a lumbar strain, but returns to the Athletics with September's roster expansion. The 34-year-old is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mariners, with Chad Pinder starting in left field against southpaw James Paxton (forearm).

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Solid during rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce (back) has hit .281 (9-for-32) with three doubles, three RBI, three walks and four runs across nine rehab games with Triple-A Nashville.

The veteran outfielder is likely on the verge of a return to the big-league club now that rosters have expanded. Joyce has reportedly been free of all setbacks during his minor-league assignment, and the extended time he's played with the Sounds has likely been sufficient to get his timing at the plate back up to speed. If Joyce does indeed return to the Athletics, he'll be part of a crowded outfield rotation that also includes Ramon Laureano, Dustin Fowler, and potentially, likely September callup Nick Martini.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Cleared for rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce (back) has received medical clearance to begin a rehab assignment, which will begin Tuesday at Triple-A Nashville, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. "He's going to get several games under his belt, based on the fact he's been out as long as he has, but we're running up on September pretty soon, so there's only so much time for him to play with one of the affiliates and get ready," A's manager Bob Melvin said.

Joyce has been out of game action since July 4, so he'll need multiple games at the minor-league level to get some semblance of timing at the plate back. There are just over two weeks left in the minor-league season, so Joyce should have just enough time to get his work in before big-league rosters expand for September. The veteran projects to have more competition for playing time upon return, however, as Nick Martini and Ramon Laureano have been promoted in his absence and performed well.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Still not cleared to resume baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce (back) has been doing strength drills and Watkins exercises with his back but has not yet resumed baseball activities, Eric He of MLB.com reports.

The outfielder received a second epidural shot last Wednesday after experiencing a setback while performing baseball-related activities. Considering he's been out of action since July 7, a relatively sizable minor-league rehab assignment likely awaits Joyce once he's able to gain sufficient clearance.
