  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Homers off bench in win

    Butler went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run in Friday's 6-2 win over the Phillies.

    Butler opened the game on the bench but crushed a two-run homer that traveled 414 feet in his only at-bat of the game. While the outfielder has struggled for much of the year and typically sits against left-handed pitching, he has been gone 10-for-32 in July with four home runs, 11 RBI, seven runs scored and two stolen bases.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Wild in no-decision

    Harris did not factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 win against the Phillies, allowing two runs on three hits and six walks with no strikeouts over three innings.

    Harris yielded two runs over three frames despite allowing nine baserunners and generating only two swinging strikes on 70 pitches. The southpaw doubled his season-high in walks with six, but he has not surrendered more than three earned runs in an outing since his first appearance May 7. He will take a 3.40 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 35:23 K:BB across 47.2 innings into the All-Star break.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Taking seat Friday

    Butler is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

    Butler will get a breather Friday after starting four consecutive games in right field. Miguel Andujar, Daz Cameron and Tyler Nevin fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Athletics' JJ Bleday: Idle Friday

    Bleday is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

    Bleday will get the night off Friday after making four consecutive starts in center field. In his place, Daz Cameron will lead off and play center.

  • Athletics' Michel Otanez: Sent back to Las Vegas

    The Athletics optioned Otanez to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.

    Otanez joined the Athletics' bullpen for a few days while Hogan Harris was on the paternity list and logged 2.2 scoreless innings. However, with Harris back, Otanez will return to Triple-A. Otanez owns a 5.35 ERA across 29 appearances with Las Vegas this season.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Officially activated

    The Athletics reinstated Harris from the paternity list Friday. Harris will start Friday's game against Philadelphia.

    Harris missed the maximum three games on the paternity list and will be activated in time to start Friday on six days' rest. The southpaw hasn't allowed more than three runs in eight consecutive starts and owns a 3.22 ERA with 35 strikeouts across 44.2 innings on the year. Michel Otanez was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Swipes fifth base Thursday

    Rooker went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Red Sox on Thursday.

    Rooker swiped his fifth bag of the season, a new career high, while reaching safely for the ninth consecutive game. The 29-year-old is hitting a blistering .448 (13-for-29) during that span and complementing it with an elite .553 OBP that's partly the byproduct of an 18.4 percent walk rate.

  • Athletics' Esteury Ruiz: Keeps rolling in second rehab game

    Ruiz (wrist) started and played seven innings in center field during Single-A Stockton's loss to Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a double and two runs.

    Ruiz has now played twice in three nights for the Ports since kicking off his rehab assignment, going 3-for-6 with Thursday's double, an RBI, a walk, a stolen base and the pair of runs. The speedy outfielder has also been able to play defense on both occasions, and he may have already proven enough to be bumped up to Triple-A Las Vegas for the next and likely final phase of his recovery.

  • Athletics' Seth Brown: Singles in return

    Brown, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, started in right field in Thursday's 7-0 loss to the Red Sox and went 1-for-3.

    Brown had been swinging a blistering bat in the PCL, but the slugging outfielder endured a nightmarish 63-game stint with Oakland prior to his June 16 demotion, generating a .189 batting average, .557 OPS and career-high 33.8 percent strikeout rate across 195 plate appearances. Brown will have a lot to prove now that he's back in the majors if he's going to stick around when the A's get healthier.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Returning Friday

    Harris is in line to return from the paternity list to start Friday's game in Philadelphia.

    Harris has been away from the team for the maximum three games since being placed on the paternity list Tuesday, so Oakland would have had to add him back to the roster Friday even if he wasn't scheduled to start. He'll be taking the hill on six days' rest after facing Baltimore last weekend. Harris has been a dependable innings eater for Oakland, working between five and six frames in all but one of his last seven outings while delivering a 3.00 ERA and 1.36 WHIP during that stretch.

  • Athletics' Luis Medina: Coughs up six runs in loss

    Medina (2-4) took the loss against Boston on Thursday, allowing six runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over five innings.

    Medina fell behind 3-0 after one inning and then 5-0 after allowing a solo homer in each of the third and fourth frames. He ended his outing having tied a season-worst mark with six runs allowed despite recording a campaign-high seven punchouts. The poor performance stalled the momentum Medina had built up in allowing just two runs over 11 frames across his previous two starts.

  • Athletics' Seth Brown: Back in Oakland

    The Athletics selected Brown's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    With Tyler Soderstrom (wrist) headed for the injured list, Brown will now rejoin the A's in order to add depth to the team's big-league outfield unit. Since being outrighted to Las Vegas in June, the 31-year-old has slashed an incredible .403/.416/.736 with seven homers and 24 RBI over 77 plate appearances. It's possible Oakland works him into their lineup over the next several days in order to take advantage of his hot bat.

  • Athletics' Tyler Soderstrom: Lands on injured list

    The Athletics placed Soderstrom on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left wrist bone bruise, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Soderstrom has gone just 4-for-22 with two RBI since the beginning of July, and his wrist injury will now hold him out of action until shortly after the All-Star break. Tyler Nevin and Armando Alvarez are likely to see action at first base while Soderstrom is out, and Seth Brown will come up from Triple-A Las Vegas to fill the open spot on the active roster.

  • Athletics' Ross Stripling: Staying in Single-A for next outing

    Stripling (elbow) will remain with Single-A Stockton for his next rehab appearance, which will take place Sunday, MLB.com reports.

    Stripling had been slated to work up to approximately 35 pitches in his rehab debut Tuesday, but he was pulled short of that mark after surrendering two runs over two-thirds of an inning. The right-hander had originally been projected to bump up to Triple-A Las Vegas for his second rehab start, but it seems the organization would like to give Stripling one more opportunity to work out some kinks at a lower level before moving his assignment to the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League with the Aviators. Stripling did emerge from Tuesday's 24-pitch start feeling healthy, so he presumably remains on track to return shortly after the All-Star break.

  • Athletics' Paul Blackburn: Staying put for next rehab outing

    Blackburn (foot) will remain with Single-A Stockton for his next rehab appearance, which will take place Sunday, MLB.com reports.

    Blackburn scuffled through a 23-pitch rehab debut Tuesday against Rancho Cucamonga, lasting just two-thirds of an inning and surrendering three earned runs. A previous report had indicated Blackburn would move up to Triple-A Las Vegas for his second rehab outing, but it appears Tuesday's rough showing led to those plans being scuttled. Blackburn presumably remains on track to return shortly after the All-Star break, as he came away from his first minor-league appearance feeling healthy.

  • Athletics' Lucas Erceg: Grabs 11th hold Wednesday

    Erceg was credited with his 11th hold in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday, firing 1.1 scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and a walk while recording a strikeout.

    Erceg filled his usual setup role with customary proficiency, generating his eighth straight scoreless appearance. The right-hander coaxed his ERA back under 3.00 (2.97) for the first time since May 25 with Wednesday's outing, and his season tally of 11 holds equals the total he mustered during his rookie 2023 campaign, albeit over 17 additional appearances.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Stays hot in Wednesday's win

    Schuemann went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Schuemann made plenty of noise out of the bottom of the order, generating one of two multi-hit efforts for the Athletics on the night while recording a steal for the second straight game. The rookie shortstop also has an eight-game on-base streak, and he's now posted multi-hit tallies twice in the last four contests.
