Pinder went 2-for-4 with a double in a win over the White Sox on Sunday.
Pinder is arguably in the midst of his best stretch of the season at the plate, as he's now equaled his season-best six-game hitting streak. However, unlike the previous occasion during which he accomplished the feat, Pinder is churning out much more impactful hits. He now has a double in three of the last four games and has also slugged a home run during that stretch. Pinder is also hitting .450 (9-for-20) overall in August and has already boosted his season average 17 points to .257 as a result.
Pinder went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
Pinder squared up on his 11th home run of the season in the eighth inning with Mark Canha aboard, doubling up the Athletics' lead to 4-0. Pinder's bat has caught fire in August following a .196 average in July, as he's now 6-for-14 with a double, three homers, seven RBI, two walks and four runs this month, giving his season average a quick 11-point boost to .251.
Pinder hit a three-run homer as a pinch hitter in an 8-3 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.
Pinder came to the plate in place of Robbie Grossman in the seventh inning and deposited a Tyler Webb pitch over the left field wall. The utility man has found playing time fleeting, but he's 4-for-11 with two homers, six RBI and three runs scored in his last five games. For the year, Pinder has 10 homers, 36 RBI and 33 runs scored across 232 at-bats.
Pinder, who went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in a win over the Brewers on Thursday, has an extra-base hit in each of his last three starts.
Pinder's homer was his first since July 17, but it followed a pair of doubles in each of his prior two starts. The 27-year-old is currently seeing time in the outfield with Ramon Laureano (lower leg) on the injured list, and his considerable positional versatility should afford him fairly regular playing time down the stretch.
Pinder will start in right field and bat eighth Thursday against the Brewers.
With four starts in the outfield in five games, Pinder looks like he'll be the main replacement for Ramon Laureano's (lower leg) move to the injured list. Pinder could be headed back to a reserve role in the near future, however. Stephen Piscotty (knee) has already played in four games during his minor-league rehab assignment and looks poised to return from the IL as soon as Saturday. Once reinstated, Piscotty should settle back into a full-time role in right field, forcing Pinder to vie for short-side platoon work at a different position.
Pinder went 1-for-3 with a two-run double, a walk and a run in a win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Pinder took Tommy Milone deep in the sixth frame, his eighth homer of the season. It was just his second start since the All-Star break, though if Matt Champman (ankle) is forced to miss time, at-bats could open up at either the hot corner or in the outfield. Overall, Pinder is hitting .244/.288/.423 across 219 plate appearances on the season.
Pinder (ankle) went 0-for-3 and played eight innings in Friday's 5-2 win over the Mariners.
Pinder struck out once and was lifted for pinch hitter Robbie Grossman in the ninth inning. Even when healthy, playing time remains inconsistent for Pinder. The utility man sports a .247/.290/.425 line with seven homers and 24 RBI in 61 games this year.
Pinder (ankle) will start in left field Friday against the Mariners.

Pinder twisted his ankle during fielding drills prior to Wednesday's game and did not see the field during the 12-inning loss. The 27-year-old rarely starts versus right-handers so there's a good chance he would have remained on the bench Thursday regardless. The injury doesn't appear to be a major concern for the utility player.

Pinder ignited what would be a six-run rally for the Athletics in the fifth inning by slugging a 414-foot shot to left with Josh Phegley aboard. The 27-year-old utility asset has now homered twice in the past five games after going 14 games without leaving the yard between May 19 and June 15.
Pinder went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's 8-2 loss to the Rays.

Pinder enters the lineup for the third straight game after starting both ends of Saturday's doubleheader, going 1-for-6 between the two contests. He'll be filling in for Jurickson Profar in the series finale but Pinder still looks like a short-side platoon player for Oakland.
Pinder is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.

Pinder went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and a run in a win over the Mariners on Saturday.
The versatile utility man contributed one of four two-hit efforts for the Athletics on the afternoon.

Pinder will start in left field and bat third Sunday against the Tigers.
Pinder will be rewarded with a third straight start after slugging home runs in each of the last two days. His favorable lineup spot and career 124 wRC+ versus left-handed pitchers makes him an appealing selection for DFS lineups with southpaw Gregory Soto on the hill for Detroit.
