The veteran outfielder hadn't left the yard since April 15, and the multi-hit effort was his first since April 23, with Piscotty hitting an anemic .100 (2-for-20) and posting a bloated 40.0 percent strikeout rate during the latter span.

Piscotty has just a .250 average through his first 45 plate appearances, but his slugging percentage sits at a rock-solid .475 thanks in large part to half of his 10 hits thus far going for extra bases in the form of three doubles and two home runs.

Piscotty will start in right field and bat eighth in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Twins.
Piscotty is back in action for the Athletics after missing the team's last three games while he was on the paternity list. Considering he's getting the nod over the lefty-hitting Seth Brown with a right-hander (Matt Shoemaker) on the mound for Minnesota, Piscotty looks like he'll get another chance as an everyday player in the Oakland outfield.
Piscotty (personal) was activated from the paternity list Monday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Piscotty is due to come off the paternity list Monday, the Associated Press reports.
The veteran outfielder will end up having missed the last three installments of the four-game set against the Tigers due to his leave.

Piscotty was placed on the paternity list Friday, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 30-year-old will be away from the team for a few days to be with his family for the birth of his child.

Vimael Machin was recalled from the alternate training site in a corresponding move.

Piscotty will start in right field and bat seventh Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Piscotty is notably being included in the lineup versus a right-handed pitcher (Trevor Bauer) after he appeared to be stuck in a short-side platoon role in right field to begin the season. Chad Pinder's (knee) move to the 10-day injured list appears to have reopened more work for Piscotty against righties, but the 30-year-old is still expected to find himself in the bottom third of the lineup for most of those matchups.
Piscotty, who's started in just two of the Athletics' first five games, is slated to be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers and is "maybe a little bit more targeted with lefties right now" according to manager Bob Melvin, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty did knock a pinch-hit single and subsequently scored in Monday's loss to Los Angeles, and he'll return to the starting nine against southpaw Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday. The veteran outfielder started Saturday's and Sunday's games against right-handers Lance McCullers and Jose Urquidy, respectively, going a combined 0-for-7 in those contests. Melvin's comments seem to imply Piscotty could draw most of his starts for the time being versus lefties, a handedness against which he owns a career .279/.361/.479 slash, .359 wOBA and .200 ISO across 649 plate appearances.
Piscotty is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Piscotty has now sat out three times in four games to begin the season, with all of his benchings coming against right-handed pitching. At this point, Piscotty may be a part-time player for the Athletics, who have been giving Chad Pinder a more extended look in right field. Pinder will start again Sunday after he went 3-for-10 with a home run across Oakland's first three games.
Piscotty is not in Friday's lineup against the Astros, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He sat Thursday with a righty (Zack Greinke) on the hill and will sit again with righty Cristian Javier starting for Houston. Chad Pinder started in right field in the opener and Ka'ai Tom is starting in right for Game 2. It's possible Piscotty is not 100 percent healthy or is being phased into a part-time role.
Piscotty isn't starting Thursday's game against the Astros.
Piscotty is expected to serve as the primary right fielder for Oakland this year, but he'll take a seat for Thursday's Opening Day matchup. Chad Pinder will take his place in right field, batting eighth.
Piscotty has hit both of his spring home runs since his return from a six-day absence due to a wrist injury.
The veteran outfielder has seemingly corroborated the fitness of his previously injured wrist with two-run blasts against the White Sox and Mariners on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. The strong performances are in stark contrast to the rest of Piscotty's forgettable spring -- so much so that they only lifted his Cactus League average to .200 across 35 plate appearances.
