Athletics' Matt Joyce: Clubs 18th home run Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Joyce went 2-for-2 with a walk and a solo homer in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Astros.

His eighth-inning shot off Chris Devenski, Joyce's 18th of the season, was the only offense Oakland could muster. The veteran slugger is enjoying a big August so far, slashing .317/.370/.805 with five homers and 12 RBI in 12 games.

Athletics' Sean Manaea: Can't keep ball in park Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manaea (8-8) dropped the decision in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Astros, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings while striking out two.

After surrendering 18 runs over just 6.2 innings in his last three starts, this was in many ways a welcome return to form for Manaea as he delivered his 11th quality start of the year. On the other hand, he gave up two more homers, and his 2.2 HR/9 in seven starts since the All-Star break has been a big driver in his ugly recent results. The lefty will try to build some momentum in his next outing Wednesday on the road against the Orioles.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Team not rushing rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phegley (oblique), who went 2-for-7 with an RBI and three strikeouts in his first two rehab games with Triple-A Nashville, won't be rushed through his rehab assignment, Christian Boutwell of MLB.com reports. "He feels good," manager Bob Melvin said. "He's going to play multiple games. It's not like it's a speed-up process and get him back here."

Melvin has the luxury of making that assessment thanks in large part to the presence of both Bruce Maxwell and Dustin Garneau on the big-league roster, two capable backstops that can hold down the fort while Phegley gets fully recovered. The 29-year-old has already missed 22 games with his currently injury and also spent seven days on the DL back in May with a concussion.

Athletics' Zach Neal: Outrighted to Triple-A Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neal cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Christian Boutwell of MLB.com reports.

The 28-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment on Wednesday to make room for southpaw Sam Moll, who'd been acquired from the Rockies on that same day. Neal has endured a rocky 2017 in stints with both the Sounds and the big-league club, and he's appears destined to finish out the balance of the campaign in Nashville.

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.
