  • Athletics' Abraham Toro: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Toro is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

    Toro started the previous 14 games but will take a seat after he posted a .686 OPS during that stretch. Tyler Nevin will man the hot corner while Esteury Ruiz bats leadoff for the A's.

  • Athletics' Lucas Erceg: Earns first win Monday

    Erceg (1-1) earned the win against the Yankees on Monday, firing two scoreless innings during which he allowed a walk and recorded a strikeout.

    Erceg took the baton from starter JP Sears, who stymied his former Yankees squad over six shutout, three-hit innings. Erceg didn't miss a beat, locating 17 of his 26 pitches for strikes and serving as a bridge to a rare save opportunity for Mason Miller in the ninth inning. The right-hander now has five consecutive scoreless appearances, a span during which he's fired six scoreless frames while recording six strikeouts.

  • Athletics' Zack Gelof: Blasts game-winner

    Gelof went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Monday's 2-0 win over the Yankees.

    Gelof entered the ninth hitless in three at-bats but broke the scoreless tie by lifting a 2-2 pitch over the right-center field wall for an opposite-field, two-run blast, his third long ball of the season. Gelof, who entered the day hitting just .202, has now put together hits in consecutive games for the first time since April 7-11 by following up a two-hit day Sunday with Monday's game-winner.

  • Athletics' Mason Miller: Fans side for fifth save

    Miller tossed a clean ninth inning, striking out all three batters he faced to pick up his fifth save during Monday's 2-0 win over the Yankees.

    Miller needed just 14 pitches to strike out the side and finish off the listless Yankees. The game was scoreless through eight, but a Zack Gelof two-run homer gave the A's the lead in the top of the ninth, allowing Miller the opportunity to close out his fifth save. All five saves have come in Miller's last five appearances as he's put a stranglehold on the ninth-inning role for Oakland. The effort dropped his ERA to 1.80 and his WHIP to 1.00 while lifting his strikeout rate to 18.0 K/9.

  • Athletics' JP Sears: Keeps Yankees off board

    Sears did not factor into the decision, allowing three hits and one walk over six scoreless innings during Monday's 2-0 win over the Yankees. He struck out seven.

    Sears was involved in a pitcher's duel with the Yankees' Carlos Rodon. Neither blinked, leaving each with a tough-luck no-decision. Despite throwing a first-pitch strike to only 11 of 21 batters, Sears limited the Yankees to four baserunners while striking out more than a batter per inning for the first time this season. After allowing nine runs over 9.1 innings through two starts, Sears has allowed just one run and six hits over his last three starts spanning 17.1 innings. Things won't get easier in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for this weekend in Baltimore.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Rehab assignment close

    Alexanders (ribs) is tracking toward starting a minor-league rehab assignment sometime next week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander has been on the shelf since mid-March after being diagnosed with a left rib stress reaction. The veteran southpaw will probably make a handful of rehab appearances before being activated, but since he's a one-inning reliever, he won't require an extended ramp-up period.

  • Athletics' Luis Medina: Getting close to rehab games

    Medina (knee) is on track to begin a rehab assignment next week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Medina is with Oakland on its road trip and is set to throw four bullpen sessions before going out on a rehab assignment. The right-hander is working his way back from the Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee that he suffered back in early March. Medina is on the 60-day injured list and thus isn't eligible for activation until late May. It will take time for him to be built back up as a starter, so he likely wouldn't be available before then, anyway.

  • Athletics' Zack Gelof: Mired in extended skid

    Gelof went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a loss to the Guardians on Sunday, but he still carries a .158/.200/.158 slash line over the 40 plate appearances covering his last 10 games.

    Gelof appeared primed to build on a highly encouraging rookie 2023 campaign after he followed up an impressive spring by reaching safely in nine of the first 12 games of the season. However, matters took a serious turn for the worse after that point, as the aforementioned slash line indicates. Consistent and impactful contact have both proven highly elusive -- Gelof sports a 32.5 percent strikeout rate in that 10-game sample and hasn't recorded an extra-base hit since the solo home run he belted against the Rangers on April 10.

  • Athletics' Ken Waldichuk: Nearing rehab assignment

    Waldichuk (elbow) could begin a rehab assignment sometime next week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty has joined the Athletics on their road trip and will throw four bullpen sessions before being sent out on a rehab assignment. Waldichuk was diagnosed last October with a UCL sprain and flexor strain, but he chose a more conservative Tenex procedure to remove scar tissue and help alleviate pain. He will be built up as a starter, so Waldichuk will likely need most of his 30-day rehab allotment before being an option for the Oakland rotation. The southpaw is on the 60-day injured list and won't be eligible for activation until late May.

  • Athletics' Nick Allen: Recaptures regular role

    Allen will start at shortstop and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Allen had begun to fade into a part-time role early last week, but he appears to have since regained a foothold as the Athletics' everyday shortstop after rookie Darell Hernaiz was demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. He's now picked up a fifth straight start at shortstop, but Allen still isn't an enticing fantasy option in spite of the increased stability with his playing time. Through 58 plate appearances this season, Allen is slashing .170/.241/.208 with zero home runs or stolen bases.

  • Athletics' Seth Brown: Sitting against lefty

    Brown is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The Athletics will send all three of their lefty-hitting outfielders to the bench for the series opener with southpaw Carlos Rodon on the hill for the Yankees. Brown will take a seat along with JJ Bleday and Lawrence Butler while Max Schuemann, Esteury Ruiz and Tyler Nevin form the Oakland outfield from left to right.

  • Athletics' JJ Bleday: Sits against southpaw

    Bleday is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Bleday will hit the bench for the third time in five games, with all three of his absences coming against left-handed starting pitchers. With Bleday out of the lineup, Esteury Ruiz will get a turn in center field while serving as Oakland's leadoff hitter.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: On bench against lefty

    Butler is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The lefty-hitting Butler will hit the bench for the series opener with southpaw Carlos Rodon on the hill for the Yankees. The Athletics will replace Butler in the lineup with Tyler Nevin, who draws the start in right field.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Goes yard again

    Rooker went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Guardians.

    Rooker homered for the second time in three games since returning from the 10-day IL due to a rib injury. He's swatted four home runs this season -- each coming in his last six games. On the year, Rooker is slashing .205/.244/.538 with a 51.2 percent strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Keeps loss streak in tact

    Stripling (0-5) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and a walk across five innings against the Athletics. He struck out four.

    Although Stripling yielded three or fewer runs for the third time in his last four starts, the A's weren't able to provide enough run support to put Stripling in contention for the win. The veteran righty has taken the loss in all five of his appearances this season -- a league-leading total -- and owns a 5.34 ERA and 1.57 WHIP across 28.2 innings. Stripling is tentatively scheduled for a start against the Orioles on Friday.
