Athletics' Dany Jimenez: Notches seventh save
Jimenez picked up the save, striking out one in 1.2 scoreless innings in a 5-2 victory over Minnesota.
Jimenez entered the game in the eighth inning with the tying run at the plate and eliminated the threat on a fly-out and a groundout. He retired the side in order in the ninth in his longest outing of the season. The 28-year-old has been stellar over his first 15 appearances, converting all seven save opportunities and striking out more than a batter an inning in his first extended opportunity to pitch at the major-league level....

Athletics' James Kaprielian: Six strikeouts in no-decision
Kaprielian allowed two runs on four hits and a walk, striking out six in 5.1 innings of a 5-2 win Tuesday over Minnesota. He did not factor into the decision.
Kaprielian retired the side in order in the first two innings and pitched around hits in the third and fourth innings. In the fifth, he gave up a solo homer to Royce Lewis and the next inning Gary Sanchez tagged him for another solo shot, ending Kaprielian's evening. While the 28-year-old has not yet recorded a win, he has pitched well in three straight outings, allowing two runs or fewer and pitching at least five innings each time. With a 16:10 K:BB, the righty has had less than stellar command on the season, but Tuesday's start was a step in the right direction.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Elvis Andrus: Swinging blistering bat
Andrus, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in a loss to the Twins on Monday, is hitting .467 (7-for-15) with an RBI, two walks and a run in the last five games.
The brief but impressive surge has quickly boosted the veteran shortstop's average from .183 to .231. Andrus' hot streak is reminiscent of his much longer breakout in 2021 following a similarly dreadful start, one that saw him furnish a .273 average and .325 on-base percentage over his final 100 games after carrying .174 and .219 figures in those categories as late as May 24....

Athletics' Dermis Garcia: Returns for Triple-A club
Garcia (undisclosed) has gone 7-for-16 with a home run, a double, three RBI and three runs in four games since returning to action for Triple-A Las Vegas on May 11.
Garcia hadn't played for nearly two weeks due to the unspecified issue before checking back into the lineup. The 24-year-old first baseman is slashing .328/.429/.569 through 70 plate appearances at Las Vegas this season and could get a look with the Athletics at some point later in 2022.... See More ...

Athletics' Stephen Vogt: Makes good progress Monday
Vogt (knee) took part in full baseball activities before Monday's series opener against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The veteran backstop was able to take batting practice and participate in both running and fielding drills for the first time since going on the injured list April 21. Despite the encouraging news, manager Mark Kotsay remains non-committal regarding a possible return date for Vogt, who will almost certainly require a minor-league rehab assignment before activation....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Gets fourth straight start
Lowrie will serve as Oakland's designated hitter and No. 2 batter in Tuesday's game against the Twins.
Lowrie will pick up his fourth consecutive start Tuesday, with three of those assignments coming against right-handed pitching. The rebuilding Athletics may not be inclined to continue carving out regular playing time for a veteran on expiring deal, especially while he's sitting on an underwhelming .540 OPS on the campaign. It's worth noting that Sheldon Neuse (groin) is sitting out Tuesday for the third straight game, so Lowrie could be a candidate to lose hold of an everyday role if Neuse avoids a trip to the injured list....

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Sitting again Tuesday
Pinder is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Pinder is 3-for-17 with six strikeouts over his past five appearances and finds himself on the bench for the second consecutive contest. Luis Barrera will man left field in his absence Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Remains out of lineup
Neuse (groin) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Twins, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Neuse will sit out for the second straight game due to tightness in his groin. The 27-year-old was reportedly available off the bench for Monday's contest but never saw the field, so he'll presumably be available again Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Zach Logue: Takes no-decision Monday
Logue (2-2) tossed 4.1 innings against Minnesota on Monday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two.
The rookie struggled some with his control in the contest, throwing just 46 of 82 pitches for strikes and tossing a first-pitch strike to only seven of the 20 batters he faced. He gave up a run in each of the third and fourth innings and loaded the bases while collecting only one out in the fifth before he was pulled, but Domingo Acevedo came in from the bullpen and prevented the Twins from scoring any runs in the frame. Logue has pitched relatively well overall across three starts this season, and he's lined up to next face a formidable Angels offense on the road this weekend.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Battling tight groin
Neuse is battling groin tightness, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The injury explains why Neuse will be out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday against the Twins. It doesn't appear to be a particularly serious issue, as he'll be available off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Not in Monday's lineup
Pinder isn't starting Monday against the Twins.
Pinder went 2-for-2 with a double, a stolen base and a walk during Sunday's loss to the Angels, but he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Luis Barrera will start in left field and bat seventh.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Riding pine Monday
Neuse isn't starting Monday against the Twins.
Neuse has recorded hits in five of his last six games and has hit .227 with a triple, a double, four runs, a stolen base, three walks and seven strikeouts during that time. However, he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight matchup while Kevin Smith shifts to third base with Elvis Andrus starting at shortstop.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adam Oller: Sent down after spot start
Oller was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas after Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels.
He was making a spot start, and considering he has a 12.27 ERA and 2.18 WHIP in 14.2 innings through four MLB appearances, it may be a while before he gets another such opportunity. Oller has been better at Triple-A, where he has given up two earned runs while striking out eight over eight innings in two appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Back at Triple-A
Martinez was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas following last week's start in Detroit.
Oddly enough, his best statistical start of the season was his one for the big club, as he struck out three over 5.1 scoreless innings. It's been a different story in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, where he has a 7.61 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 32 strikeouts in 23.2 innings through six starts.... See More ... See Less
