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.

Athletics' Frankie Montas: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montas was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The A's won't need Montas to make another start until after the All-Star break, so they will take this opportunity to add Ryan Dull to the bullpen for the final six days of the first half. It is unclear if he will start for Nashville or if the A's will use this as an opportunity to shut him down for a week or 10 days. He could rejoin the rotation against the Giants or against the Rangers in the second half.

Athletics' Stephen Piscotty: Homers for third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Piscotty went 3-for-4 with two RBI from a solo home run and an RBI single in a win over the Astros on Monday.

Piscotty launched his 10th homer of the season in the seventh to snap a scoreless tie before adding an insurance run in the eighth with a timely single that plated Khris Davis. The outfielder has now left the yard in three consecutive contests and is hitting .364 (8-for-22) with three doubles, three home runs and nine RBI over his last five games overall.

Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Hopeful for short DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics are hopeful that Blackburn (elbow), who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, will only be sidelined for a brief period, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Blackburn was diagnosed with tennis elbow following his July 6 start against the Indians and is scheduled to meet with team doctors in the Bay Area this week as the Athletics look to determine if there's any additional damage. If the current diagnosis holds, Blackburn could resume throwing at some point during the All-Star break and return from the DL shortly thereafter. The injury may nonetheless hinder Blackburn's chances of regaining as a rotation spot, as the Athletics could get starters Trevor Cahill (Achilles) and Daniel Mengden (foot) back from the DL this week. Blackburn may not have much of a case for sticking in the rotation over back-end starters like Frankie Montas, Chris Bassitt, Brett Anderson and Edwin Jackson after struggling to a 7.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in six outings prior to landing on the shelf.

Athletics' Blake Treinen: Notches 23rd save Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treinen worked around two hits to finish a scoreless ninth for his 23rd save Monday against Houston.

Treinen struck out a pair, the 16th time this year he has struck out multiple batters. He now has 19 saves in a row dating back to April 18 -- a game in which he stayed in for two scoreless innings after blowing the save in an eventual extra innings win for the Athletics. Treinen owns a 0.79 ERA and has earned his All-Star appearance with a brilliant first half.
