Chapman agreed to a one-year, $6.49 million deal with the Athletics on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.
He underwent surgery to repair a torn right hip labrum in mid-September. Agent Scott Boras said in December that Chapman received clearance for increased activity and should be ready for spring training. That said, it's possible Chapman won't be performing at his very best early in the season as he works his way back.
Agent Scott Boras said Chapman (hip) received clearance for increased activity and and should be ready for the start of spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The 27-year-old underwent surgery to address a torn right hip labrum in mid-September and was given a four-month recovery, and it appears he's progressing as planned. Chapman had a .232/.276/.353 slash line with 10 home runs, nine doubles and 25 RBI in 37 games last season and is poised to start at the hot corner again for the A's in 2021.
Chapman underwent successful surgery to repair a torn right hip labrum and has a four-month recovery timeline, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old finishes 2020 with a .232/.276/.535 slash line, 10 homers and 25 RBI in 37 games. If all goes well in his recovery, Chapman should be healthy for the start of spring training in February, though any minor setbacks could bring a delayed arrival to camp. Jake Lamb is likely to see the bulk of the time at third base for the A's since Chad Pinder (hamstring) is also sidelined.
Chapman (hip) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday and will undergo surgery to address a torn right hip labrum, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chapman has been sidelined for the past seven games while dealing with right hip tendinitis, and he'll miss the remainder of the season as a result. The 27-year-old had started all but one of the Athletics' games prior to his injury, slashing .232/.276/.535 with 10 home runs and 25 RBI. Whether he'll be ready for spring training in 2021 remains to be seen. Seth Brown was recalled in a corresponding move, while Chad Pinder and Vimael Machin should see playing time at third base in Chapman's absence.
Chapman will sit for the seventh straight game with right hip tendinitis Saturday against Texas.
Chapman still hasn't been placed on the injured list, though if he had been when he first suffered the injury, he'd be eligible to return next Thursday. Given that he's still yet to resume baseball activities and doesn't have a timeline to do so, it's quite possible he won't return before that date. Vimael Machin will serve as the third baseman Saturday.
There are no plans for Chapman (hip) to do any baseball activities in the near future, although the Athletics are maintaining he did not suffer any setbacks, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
A report from John Hickey of SI.com on Tuesday suggested Chapman would start baseball-related activities Wednesday, but the A's are saying that was never the plan. The latest reports suggest Chapman won't be back this weekend, at which point it may make sense for Oakland to place him on the injured list. He suffered a right hip strain Sept. 6. Chad Pinder is starting at third base and batting eighth Thursday.
Chapman (hip) didn't resume baseball activities Wednesday and may not do so Thursday, Alex Coffey of The Athletic reports.
Manager Bob Melvin didn't indicate the 27-year-old suffered a setback with the right hip tendinitis, but something changed as he was previously expected to participate in baseball activities Wednesday. Chapman doesn't have an official timeline for his return but seems likely to be sidelined for at least another couple games.
Chapman (hip) will resume baseball activities Wednesday, John Hickey of SI.com reports.
Chapman is dealing with right hip tendinitis, but he'll test things out Wednesday. He didn't rule out a return by Thursday, but his timetable likely depends on how he feels after participating in baseball activities. Chad Pinder is taking over at third base for Tuesday's matinee.
Chapman was diagnosed with right hip tendinitis Monday but is not expected to head to the injured list, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Chapman suffered the injury, which was originally called a strain, Sunday against San Diego. It remains unclear when exactly he'll return, but that should happen within the next few days. Tommy La Stella will serve as the third baseman Monday, with Tony Kemp starting at second base.
Chapman (hip) is out of the lineup as expected Monday against the Astros.
Chapman isn't expected to return before Wednesday after suffering a hip strain Sunday against the Padres. Whether or not he'll require a trip to the injured list remains to be seen. Tommy La Stella will be the third baseman Monday.
Athletics manager Bob Melvin said in an interview with MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that he doesn't expect Chapman (hip) to play Monday or in Oakland's doubleheader Tuesday with the Astros.
Oakland hasn't disclosed the results of the MRI that Chapman underwent on the strained right hip he sustained in Sunday's series finale with the Padres, but the injury is apparently considered serious enough to sideline him for the next two days. For now, the Athletics are hopeful a couple days of rest will be enough for Chapman to move past the hip issue, but a stint on the injured list isn't being ruled out for the slick-fielding third baseman. Chad Pinder or Tommy La Stella should serve as the primary replacements at the hot corner until Chapman is deemed ready to go.
Chapman was diagnosed with a right hip strain and will undergo an MRI, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chapman was forced out of Sunday's contest prior to the fifth inning due to his injury, and the MRI could help to determine the extent of the issue. A better timetable for his return should come into focus once the results of the MRI are known.
Chapman exited Sunday's game against the Padres with an apparent leg injury, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Chapman was replaced defensively to begin the fifth inning, and he appeared to be having his leg looked at by trainers before he was replaced. The nature and severity of the injury aren't yet known, and it's unclear whether his availability will be impacted moving forward.

After being struck by a pitch on the helmet in Tuesday's game Chapman was held out of the lineup for the first time all season last time the A's took the field Wednesday. However, he is ready to get back in there for Friday's contest. Chapman will man the hot corner and hit cleanup in Oakland's batting order.
Chapman (head) is expected to start Thursday's game against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The 27-year-old was hit in the helmet by a pitch Tuesday and was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup, though he still appeared in the contest as a defensive replacement. Chapman didn't suffer a concussion, so the A's were likely just expressing caution with their third baseman.
Chapman was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers for an undisclosed reason.
Chapman remained in the game after being hit in the helmet by a pitch Tuesday, although the club hasn't confirmed whether his absence Wednesday is related. Vimael Machin will enter the lineup as the third baseman. Whether Chapman misses any additional time remains to be seen.
Chapman went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a loss to the Angels on Saturday.
Chapman's fourth-inning solo blast was the third baseman's third over the last two games and eighth of August overall.

Chapman went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Chapman made his presence felt throughout the contest, crossing the plate with half of the Athletics' four runs on Robbie Grossman's ground-rule double in the first inning and Mark Canha's home run in the third. In the process, the slugging third baseman snapped a very brief 0-for-5 skid that had encompassed his last two games, and he now carries a four-game on-base streak as part of a lopsided .238/.278/.525 season slash line.
