Craig Gentry, whom the A’s acquired from the Rangers for prospect Michael Choice this offseason, will be out for at least 10 days with a strained lower back.

Manager Bob Melvin expressed some optimism that Gentry will have time to be ready for Opening Day, but noted that right now the speedy outfielder “is not where the training staff would like to see him be in terms of strength.”

Gentry is expected to fill a part-time role for Oakland after logging 287 and 269 plate appearances for the Rangers during the past two seasons.

      I think Gentry’s the chap on the right. Its a picture of Leony’s Martin AND Craig Gentry. But still, can’t they do better than this? Craig Gentry isn’t The Invisible Man

      Seriously Mr. Gleeman. First you post the wrong guy’s picture and now you post a picture that has more Martin than Gentry. Oy

    I guess a picture of Gentry alone, and as an A, is too much to ask. Regardless, here are two:

    Not trying to make this a huge deal but damn dude, it’s not like it was even that hard. lol

      NBC likely doesn’t have a license for those yet. Which was the point I made before our comments were wished into the cornfield after this mornings post with a picture of Shane Peterson.

    Come on, at least use this picture moving forward.

    Enjoy, Kitten Face, Oakland.

    Copyright claims, noobs.

    Besides , let’s just point and laugh at this *best manager who traded there top pick for a 28 year old who has no power and has never played a full season. Yes, let’s keep giving Bob Melvin credit for being a top GM even tho the farm system is one of the worse
