  • Athletics' Kyler Murray: Sights still set on baseball

    Murray still plans on switching to baseball after wrapping up his college football career at the University of Oklahoma, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. "As of right now, I'm going to play baseball. That's about it," Murray said.

    The ninth overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, Murray still intends to fulfill his commitment with the Athletics despite his rapidly improving NFL stock. While the 21-year-old is expected to report to spring training, the Heisman winner still hasn't ruled out a career in football, and stated as recently as last week that he would like to play both sports if possible. Assuming Murray sticks with baseball, he could develop into a 20-homer threat while offering impact speed on the bases and in center field.

  • Athletics' Chris Herrmann: Lands deal with Oakland

    Herrmann agreed to a contract with the A's on Tuesday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

    Herrmann appeared in only 36 games for the Mariners in 2018, slashing .237/.322/.421 with two homers in those appearances. He should compete with Josh Phegley in spring training for the starting backstop role. Herrmann owns a career .205/.282/.351 slash line with 24 homers across parts of seven seasons (340 games).

  • Athletics' Andrew Triggs: Trending in right direction

    Triggs (shoulder) is expected to have a normal spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Triggs underwent thoracic outlet surgery near the end of September, and he's reportedly on track in his rehab. The right-hander is in line to be used out of the bullpen for Oakland in 2019 despite taking on a starting role last year.

  • Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Expected to have normal spring

    Blackburn (elbow) should be healthy for the start of spring training, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Blackburn was shut down from throwing in July due to tendinitis in his right elbow, although the Athletics believe he'll be good to go come February. The starting rotation is far from set, but he'll be a candidate to earn a spot near the back end during spring training.

  • Athletics' Liam Hendriks: Agrees to terms with Oakland

    Hendriks signed a one-year, $2.15 million fully guaranteed deal with Oakland on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Hendriks will be arbitration eligible for one more season before hitting the free-agent market. The 29-year-old appeared in 25 games and made eight "starts" -- which doesn't include taking the mound for the AL Wild Card Game in the Bronx -- this past year, logging a 4.13 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 8.2 K/9 across 24 innings. He finished the regular season strong and will be a vital cog in the Athletics' bullpen in 2019.

  • Athletics' Ryan Dull: Signs contract with Oakland

    Dull agreed to a one-year deal with the Athletics on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Both parties were able to find common ground to avoid arbitration. The relief pitcher appeared in 28 games for Oakland this past season, logging a 4.26 ERA and 1.14 ERA with 21 strikeouts in 25.1 innings of work. He figures to remain in a low-leverage role in 2019.

  • Athletics' Josh Phegley: Re-signs with Oakland

    Phegley signed a one-year, $1.075 million contract with the A's on Thursday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.

    For the second year in a row, Phegley and the A's were able to avoid arbitration. The backstop split time between Triple-A Nashville and the big club in 2018, hitting .235/.331/.412 in 36 games for the Sounds while slashing .204/.255/.344 through 39 games with the A's. The 30-year-old profiles more as a backup and doesn't figure to hold much fantasy value outside of two-catcher formats even in a starting role.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Kaprielian joined the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Kaprielian missed the entire 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April 2017, but his return to instructional league action in October and addition to the 40-man roster are good indications of his current health. The 24-year-old last pitched in the minors at High-A Tampa in 2016 -- before being traded from the Yankees to the A's -- and officially has only eight minor-league games under his belt.

  • Athletics' Grant Holmes: Joins 40-man roster

    Holmes (shoulder) was added to Oakland's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Holmes had his contract purchased in an effort to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. He missed the majority of the 2018 season with a rotator cuff injury, returning to the mound briefly with High-A Stockton in August before getting shut down with another shoulder issue at the beginning of October. His status for the 2019 season is currently unknown.

  • Athletics' Luis Barrera: Joins 40-man roster

    Barrera was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    The addition protects Barrera from the Rule 5 draft after he began the 2018 season at High-A Stockton and had a .284/.354/.415 slash line with 10 stolen bases in 88 games before being promoted to Double-A Midland. The 23-year-old found even more success with the Rockhounds with a .328/.378/.450 slash and 13 stolen bases in only 36 games.

  • Athletics' Skye Bolt: Added to 40-man

    Bolt joined Oakland's 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Bolt's contract was selected to shield him from the Rule 5 draft. The 24-year-old prospect spent the majority of his 2018 season with Double-A Midland (78 games), posting a .256/.325/.446 batting line with 10 homers and 37 RBI.

  • Athletics' Tanner Anderson: Dealt to Oakland

    Anderson was traded to the Athletics from the Pirates on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

    Anderson was shipped to the Athletics so the Pirates could make room on their 40-man roster for a prospect. The 25-year-old reliever appeared in six games for Pittsburgh in 2018, allowing eight runs over 11.1 frames while punching out six. He should have a chance to earn a roster spot with Oakland in spring training.
