Athletics' Dustin Garneau: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Garneau was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Monday, Stephen Langsam of the Martinez News-Gazette reports.

Garneau was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for catcher Bruce Maxwell. He'll hit the waiver wire, although it seems likely that he'll ultimately head down to Triple-A Nashville after a sluggish start to the season -- Garneau has a disappointing .208/.263/.333 batting line through 22 games.

Athletics' Josh Phegley: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

As expected, Phegley will head back to the minors with backup catcher Bruce Maxwell returning from the restricted list. The 30-year-old held his own in his brief stint with the A's, going 1-for-4 with an RBI double in his only start. He'll continue to serve as organizational catching depth in the minors.

Athletics' Bruce Maxwell: Reinstated from restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maxwell was reinstated from the restricted list Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Maxwell is back with the A's after his pending legal issues prevented him from traveling with the team to Toronto over the weekend. Maxwell, who is hitting a lackluster .211/.244/.316 through 13 games (41 plate appearances) this season, will resume his role as Oakland's backup catcher, while Josh Phegley was sent back to Triple-A Nashville in a corresponding move.

Athletics' Emilio Pagan: Relies more on fastball in big-league return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pagan, who notched his first win of the season Saturday against the Blue Jays in his initial appearance since returning from Triple-A Nashville, used his fastball a season-high 86.2 percent of the time in that outing, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I've got to stick with what I do and believe that it will work out for the best more often than not: Throwing the fastball up in the zone, the slider off that, working in the split whenever I get a chance, whenever it's a good situation for it," Pagan said.

The right-hander's velocity was also up slightly to the 95-96 mph range during the appearance, according to pitching coach Scott Emerson, which he emphasized can make a notable difference with a "mistake pitch" such as that one. Pagan had struggled while relying less on his power pitch and more on his slider before being demoted May 2, giving up seven earned runs on 13 hits over his last six appearances. Manager Bob Melvin saw Pagan's effort Saturday as a reflection of what his reliever is capable of when he pitches to his strengths. "It just seemed like he was confident," Melvin said. "Things like that don't show up, but those two innings we got from him kept us where we could have the potential comeback. He has it in him. It probably was good for him to go down and work on his strengths."

Athletics' Jonathan Lucroy: On base three times Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucroy went 2-for-4 with an RBI infield single, a walk and a run in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday.

The veteran catcher's successful May continued Sunday with his fourth multi-hit effort of the month. Lucroy is hitting an impressive .302 overall since the calendar flipped pushing his season average up 25 points to .281 in the process. The only surprisingly missing element from Lucroy's production thus far is the long ball, a particularly unusual development considering he's squaring up on the ball to the tune of a career-best 37.8 percent hard contact rate.
