Athletics' Edwin Jackson: Sharp again despite second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (1-2) got the loss against the Giants on Friday, giving up three earned runs on four hits, striking out six and walking one as the Athletics eventually fell 5-1.

He didn't get the win but it was still another quality start for the veteran right-hander-his fourth in five trips to the mound this season. He's still only thrown 30.2 innings, but Jackson is providing solid returns so far, as he's got a 2.93 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP and 23 strikeouts since his season debut on June 25.

Athletics' Sean Murphy: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy had surgery on his right wrist Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Murphy will hit the shelf after undergoing surgery on his right hamate bone. The Athletics are hopeful he'll be healthy enough to return to minor-league action before the end of the season.

Athletics' Matt Joyce: Yet to resume hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce (back) has not resumed hitting after receiving an epidural injection last week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Joyce said that he is being extra cautious in the hopes that giving his back a little extra rest will keep him from suffering a setback or a similar injury in the future. Since he's yet to start hitting or taking any swings at this point, he may remain sidelined through the end of this month, though a more concrete timetable should come to light once he resumes activities.

Athletics' Austin Beck: Not raking in steals at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beck is slashing .294/.337/.372 with a home run and five stolen bases across 350 plate appearances for Low-A Beloit this season.

Though Beck was held in high esteem for his plus speed when the Athletics selected him out of high school in the first round of the 2017 first-year player draft, the 19-year-old has yet to churn out gaudy stolen-base totals. Through 524 career plate appearances, Beck has stolen only 12 bags in 17 attempts. The outfielder has at least shown better plate skills in 2018 after struggling to make contact at the rookie-ball level, but he'll need to make more of an impact with his baserunning to raise his long-term outlook as a fantasy asset.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Shut down for a couple weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blackburn (elbow) underwent an MRI on Tuesday which revealed no structural damage, but he'll still be shut down for a couple weeks, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

The Athletics were hopeful earlier Tuesday that Blackburn would spend minimal time on the shelf, but it now appears as though a return in late July would be an optimistic possibility. Trevor Cahill (Achilles) and Daniel Mengden (foot) could return from the disabled list this week, which could leave Blackburn as the odd man out of the starting rotation, which isn't helped by his 7.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP.
