Athletics' Jake Smolinski: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smolinski avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $775,000 deal with the Athletics on Monday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Smolinski has spent parts of the past three seasons in Oakland, posting a combined .236/.297/.371 line while hitting 12 homers in 466 plate appearances for the A's. While he's struggled quite a bit against right-handed pitching through his first four major-league seasons, the 28-year-old has hit a respectable .299/.371/.501 against southpaws, lining him up as a possible platoon partner with Matt Joyce in the outfield. As of now, he appears to have a good chance at opening next season as Oakland's fourth outfielder, though that could easily change depending on the team's other offseason moves. Smolinski appeared in just 16 games last season, as he was recovering from preseason shoulder surgery.

Smolinski (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day DL on Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Athletics' Jake Smolinski: Walks, scores in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smolinski (shoulder) went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run in High-A Stockton's win over Visalia on Saturday.

Smolinski hit second and operated as the designated hitter, as he's not yet been deemed ready to test his shoulder in the outfield. The 28-year-old isn't expected to ready for big-league action until September, so he should see an extended rehab stint at various minor-league levels throughout the balance of August.

Athletics' Jake Smolinski: Expected to return in September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smolinski (shoulder) is throwing at a distance of 90 feet and is expected to begin his minor-league rehab assignment in the next week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Smolinski continues to make steady progress and is likely to head out to High-A Stockton in the coming days to get his first taste of game action in 2017. He's expected to start off as a designated hitter, but is expected to eventually work up to playing the outfield and possibly see action with the big-league club in September.
