Athletics' Sean Murphy: Struggling with average at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy, 22, is hitting .212/.275/.288 with two home runs and 17 RBI in 39 games since being promoted to Double-A Midland.

The question for Murphy is whether he can hit for average at the higher levels. He performed admirably at High-A Stockton prior to the promotion, slashing .297/.343/.527 with nine home runs and 26 RBI in 45 games. He has some power from the right side, but his plate discipline leaves something to be desired. The A's seem to like Bruce Maxwell behind the dish, so it remains to be seen where Murphy fits long-term.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Singles in first rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley (oblique) went 1-for-3 in Triple-A Nashville's win over Memphis on Wednesday.

The recovering backstop, who batted second and worked behind the plate, has been ramping up his activity for the last week, culminating in his return to game action Wednesday. Phegley is expected to log multiple games for the Sounds before being deemed ready for activation.

Athletics' Matt Chapman: Launches ninth homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Royals.

His eighth-inning blast off Brandon Maurer tied the score at 6-6, but the Oakland bullpen promptly surrendered the lead again in the ninth. Chapman now has six hits and two homers in his last five games, and he's slugged 25 long balls on the season between Triple-A (16) and the majors (nine) in only 92 games.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Early exit in Wednesday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks over four innings Wednesday but didn't factor into the decision in a 7-6 loss to the Royals. He struck out two.

He labored through his short outing, throwing only 56 of 97 pitches for strikes, and left the game on the hook for the loss before the A's rallied to tie things in the bottom of the eighth inning. Blackburn has now allowed four runs or more in four of his last six starts but held his opponents scoreless in the other two, leaving him with a semi-respectable 4.37 ERA over that stretch. He'll next take the mound Tuesday in Baltimore.

Athletics' Daniel Coulombe: Comes through with solid outing in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coulombe notched his 10th hold with 1.1 scoreless innings in Tuesday's 10-8 win over the Royals.

The performance was a stark departure from the southpaw's most recent time on the mound, an outing in which he'd allowed three earned runs on five hits to the Orioles. Coulombe has been effective for extended stretches at times this season, but he's tended to blow up in a big way when he's faltered as of late, giving up a trio of earned runs apiece in the last three appearances in which he's been scored upon. However, his largely solid efforts otherwise have helped keep his ERA (3.51) and WHIP (1.24) respectable.
