  8. Yoenis Cespedes gets no help in Oakland’s Game 1 loss

    Oct 5, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game One

    A triple and a two-run homer from Yoenis Cespedes simply wasn’t enough for the A’s Friday as the Tigers took Game 1 of the ALDS 3-2. Cespedes was responsible for two-thirds of Oakland’s hits in the game. The other was a little infield single from Brandon Moss in the seventh. Immediately after that was when…

  10. Matt Garza apologizes for Twitter rant

    Aug 4, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Rangers starter Matt Garza tweeted a couple of misogynistic things to Kaycee Sogard — the wife of A’s infielder Eric Sogard — on Saturday night after she came to her husband’s defense when the two players exchanged words following a successful seventh-inning squeeze bunt. The A’s laid down four bunts in that 4-2 victory, clearly…

  11. Matt Garza went after Eric Sogard’s wife on Twitter

    garza getty

    The first-place A’s dropped down four bunts — three of them sacrifices — in Saturday’s 4-2 victory over the second-place Rangers. That apparently upset Texas starter Matt Garza, who was spotted yelling at Oakland’s Eric Sogard following a successful squeeze play in the seventh inning and then carried that frustration over to Twitter late Saturday…

  12. A’s send Grant Green back to the minors at 0-for-15

    Jul 24, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Grant Green was expected to see regular playing time at second base after the A’s called him up three weeks ago, but instead he started just five of 11 games there while going 0-for-15 and now he’s headed back to Triple-A. Green was hitting .318 with 11 homers, 25 doubles, and an .874 OPS in…

  13. Desmond Jennings turns rare 8-unassisted double play

    Apr 20, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Desmond Jennings

    Rays center fielder Desmond Jennings turned the rare 8-unassisted double play in the top of the third inning during today’s game against the Athletics. After Eric Sogard singled with one out, starter Jeremy Hellickson got Coco Crisp to fly out to center. Sogard misread Jennings’ ability to catch the ball, so he rounded second hard…

    Scott Sizemore cannot seem to catch a break. Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the 28-year-old second baseman has been diagnosed with a re-tear of the ACL in his left knee and needs reconstructive surgery for the second time in two years. He has been ruled out for the rest of the…

  15. A’s place Scott Sizemore on DL with another knee injury

    Scott Sizemore Getty

    After missing last season following left knee surgery Scott Sizemore came back to be the A’s starting second baseman, but now he’s back on the disabled list with more knee problems. Sizemore sprained his left knee unsuccessfully chasing after a pop up Tuesday night and limped off the field. Oakland called up utility man Andy…

  16. Hiroyuki Nakajima could begin the season in the minors

    Mar 25, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    Hiroyuki Nakajima AP

    When the Athletics signed Hiroyuki Nakajima to a two-year, $6.5 million contract over the winter, the assumption was that he would open the season as the team’s starting shortstop. However, after a rough introduction to the majors, it’s increasingly likely that it’s not going to happen. In fact, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle…

  17. No more RBIs: Groin injury sends Brandon Inge to the DL

    Brandon Inge

    UPDATE: As expected, Inge finalized his deal and will be the A’s starting third baseman tonight.

  20. Juan Nicasio impresses in first start since broken neck

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:09 PM EDT

    Juan Nicasio Getty

    When Juan Nicasio suffered a fractured C-1 vertebrae as a result of being struck by a line drive last August, his baseball career was suddenly secondary. However, after making remarkable progress in his rehabilitation over the course of the past few months, it now appears likely that he’ll open the season as a member of…

  21. Josh Donaldson 0-for-7 through two spring games

    Mar 4, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    donaldson ap

    A’s assistant general manager David Forst told the San Francisco Chronicle last week that Josh Donaldson would get the first shot at replacing Scott Sizemore (knee surgery) at third base. It’s still early, and regular-season playing time is rarely dictated by spring training stats, but the 26-year-old former catcher is not off to a good…

  22. Mariners hit five homers to win Cactus League opener

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    The Phillies played Florida St. on Wednesday and there were three more exhibitions between Florida-based MLB teams and colleges today, but the spring season officially started later in the afternoon, with the Mariners and A’s squaring off in the Cactus League opener. As one would assume with such noted powerhouses playing each other, there were…

    Scott Sizemore Getty

    Scott Sizemore injured his left knee during a fielding drill on Saturday and the Athletics just announced that he’ll miss the entire 2012 season due to a torn ACL. Jane Lee of MLB.com reports that the 27-year-old will be reevaluated in two weeks before surgery is scheduled. This is just awful news for Sizemore, who…

  25. Running down the rosters: Oakland Athletics

    Feb 9, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Kurt Suzuki, Brandon McCarthy

    At least to the outside eye, it seems like the A’s have lacked a plan since they shipped off Matt Holliday after 93 games in 2009. It finally appeared that they were going for a full rebuild this winter, but after trading Trevor Cahill, Andrew Bailey and Gio Gonzalez, they re-signed Coco Crisp for $14…
