Athletics' Trevor Cahill: Throws long toss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cahill (back) threw from 120 feet Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Cahill progressed from playing catch Sunday after he received an injection to address upper-back discomfort last week. The Athletics will see how the veteran right-hander feels Wednesday before moving further in his recovery.

Athletics' Andrew Triggs: Requires thoracic outlet surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Triggs (forearm) will undergo thoracic outlet surgery Sept. 26.

Triggs has been out since mid-May with what was labeled a forearm issue. He appeared to be nearing a return to action before suffering a setback in an early-September rehab start. The surgery is a significant one and carries serious risk that Triggs won't be the same pitcher once he returns -- see Matt Harvey for a notable recent example. A more precise recovery timeline should be available following the procedure.

Athletics' Matt Olson: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Rays on Sunday.

Olson continued to swing a hot bat through the entirety of the three-game set versus Tampa, and he's now hit safely in five straight games overall. That stretch includes back-to-back two-hit efforts, and his consistency at the plate throughout the month has helped lead to an impressive .311 September average.

Athletics' Mike Fiers: Saddled with loss vs. Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fiers (12-7) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two over four innings. He didn't factor into the decision Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Fiers was tagged for two runs in the first inning and another in the fourth before exiting in a 3-0 ballgame. He tossed 45 of 80 pitches for strikes prior to being pulled. Since joining the Athletics from the Tigers on Aug. 6, Fiers has gone 5-1 with a 3.13 ERA over 43.2 frames while fanning 44. Following a short outing, he'll look to bounce back in a favorable matchup Saturday at home against Minnesota.

Athletics' Khris Davis: Launches grand slam in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay.

Davis was responsible for all four of Oakland's runs on the day, delivering a home run with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. Despite this, the Athletics would come up short in a one-run loss. The 30-year-old outfielder continues to knock the cover off the ball in 2018, posting 43 homers, 115 RBI and a .871 OPS through 140 games.
