Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Goes five innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn allowed two runs on four hits in a no-decision against the Padres on Tuesday, striking out four and walking two in five innings.

Tuesday's outing was a nice bounceback performance from Blackburn's previous start (in which he allowed eight runs in 1.1 innings), while making it to 85 pitches (53 strikes) on the night. The young right-hander has now made three starts this year, allowing 15 hits in 12.1 innings while striking out seven and walking four. With several A's starters expected to return to the rotation soon, it remains to be seen how Blackburn will be used going forward.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Blasted for first loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (1-1) was hammered for eight runs on eight hits and two walks through just 1.1 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Astros.

Blackburn was excellent against a bad lineup his first time out against Kansas City, but against the defending champions, things got ugly in a hurry. Not only did Blackburn fail to miss bats, he also struggled to find the strike zone. He was often forced to throw his fastball when behind in counts. The Astros didn't take him deep, but they did notch a double and a triple to go with six singles, and after Blackburn managed just four outs on 47 pitches, he was yanked. He'll try to get back on track Tuesday against the Padres.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Strong in 2018 debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (1-0) allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out three across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Royals.

Blackburn turned in an impressive season debut, needing only 67 pitches to pitch six strong innings against the Royals. He limited the Royals to only three flyballs on 15 balls in play, though one did go for a home run off the bat of Alcides Escobar. His fantasy fantasy upside is held back by his lack of strikeouts -- he struck out just 22 batters in 58.2 innings of work last season -- but he has shown the ability to post solid ratios thanks to his penchant for inducing groundballs.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Activated from disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (forearm) was officially reinstated from the 60-day DL prior to Thursday's start against Kansas City, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

As expected, Blackburn was added to the active roster ahead of his 2018 debut after suffering a forearm injury in the latter stages of spring training. He was able to toss three innings of work for High-A Stockton a week ago but is expected to be limited to about 75 pitches during Thursday's outing. In a corresponding move, the club optioned Bruce Maxwell to the minors and transferred Boog Powell (knee) to the 60-day DL.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Set for season debut Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (forearm) will be activated from the disabled list to start Thursday's series opener against the Royals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This confirms why Blackburn was scratched from his scheduled rehab start with High-A Stockton on Tuesday. The right-hander hasn't thrown more than 50 pitches in a rehab outing, so he'll be limited to around 75 pitches in his 2018 big-league debut. Blackburn, who has been sidelined all year with a right forearm strain, posted a 3.22 ERA and 22:16 K:BB across 10 starts (58.2 innings) with the A's last season.
