Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Gives up just one hit in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (9-10) threw five strong innings Sunday against the Rangers, giving up just one hit and walking another en route to the victory. He struck out six.

The young right-hander is having an up-and-down year, with his ERA ballooning above 5.00 every time it seems to be settling down again. This is the kind of start that has Athletics fans watering at the mouth, as he showed good command (51 of his 77 offerings went for strikes) and got back to striking out more than a batter per inning. Cotton's season ERA still sits at a lofty 5.58 mark, but he'll get one last chance to improve that when he makes another start against Texas on Friday.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Ready to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Increases activity Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (groin) ran and threw a bullpen session Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cotton said that he felt good following Friday's workout, so it looks like he could return to the mound for Sunday's game against the Rangers. Cotton has struggled in recent starts. Over his last five outings he's thrown 26.2 innings and posted a 5.74 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Control has been an an issue for Cotton all season, and his recent starts have been no exception as he walked 10 batters across the aforementioned games.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Has a chance to make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton (groin) has a chance to make his next start according to manager Bob Melvin, Kyle Beery of MLB.com reports. "He went out and played catch today, and was probably a little better than I thought he'd be, so we'll see how he is leading up to his next start," Melvin said. "We do have an extra day off, so I think there's probably an outside chance he can make it."

Cotton was scratched from Monday's start against the Tigers during warmups after he felt a pull while warming up on flat ground. However, Melvin feels that Cotton could take the hill next Sunday against the Rangers, although he's committed to not rushing him back. An update on Cotton's chances is likely to come by the end of the week.

Athletics' Jharel Cotton: Out with groin strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cotton was scratched Monday with a right groin strain suffered during warmups, Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports.

Whether or not Cotton will be able to return this season will depend on the severity of the strain. If it's anything worse than the most mild grade, expect his season to be over. If so, Cotton will finish with a disappointing 5.81 ERA and 1.48 WHIP over 23 starts for the Athletics in 2017.
