    Nick Franklin Getty

    We learned last month that the Mets and Rays had been in touch with the Mariners about a trade for infielder Nick Franklin, but CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles are also interested. Baltimore would be a logical fit for Franklin, as Ryan Flaherty, Jonathan Schoop, Jemile Weeks, and Alexi Casilla are the…

    UPDATE: FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Athletics have acquired Johnson from the Orioles in exchange for second baseman Jemile Weeks. The Orioles are also expected to receive a player to be named later. Weeks was once a top prospect with the A’s, but he has fallen out of favor over the past two…

    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…

  5. A’s send Jemile Weeks back to Triple-A

    Mar 25, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Jemile Weeks

    Not so long ago Jemile Weeks looked like the A’s long-term answer at second base, but they briefly sent him to Triple-A after he struggled in the first half last season and now he’ll begin this year back in the minors. He hit .370 this spring, but the offseason trade for Jed Lowrie crowded the…

    Jemile Weeks entered last season as the Athletics’ starting second baseman, but a sophomore slump resulted in a demotion in August and being left off the postseason roster. But he’ll have a chance at redemption in 2013. According to Jane Lee of MLB.com, Weeks and Scott Sizemore will be part of what Athletics manager Bob…

  7. A’s sign Hiroyuki Nakajima for two years, $6.5 million

    Dec 17, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Hiroyuki Nakajima

    The A’s moved quickly on to their backup plan after losing out on Stephen Drew, signing import Hiroyuki Nakajima to take over at shortstop, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal and others. The San Francisco Chronice’s Susan Slusser reports that it’s a two-year, $6.5 million deal with a $5.5 million option for 2015. Nakajima, 30, hit…

    Robinson Cano

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  9. A’s recalling Jemile Weeks, Daric Barton from Triple-A

    Sep 10, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Jemile Weeks

    Oakland’s Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento was knocked out of the Pacific Coast League playoffs yesterday, so the A’s have recalled Jemile Weeks and Daric Barton as part of September roster expansion. Weeks was demoted to Triple-A in mid-August after hitting just .220 in 113 games as the A’s starting second baseman. He batted .322 with…

  10. A’s demote Jemile Weeks to Triple-A

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    Jemile Weeks

    The Athletics made room for J.D. Drew‘s little brother by shipping Rickie Weeks‘ little brother back to the minors. Jemile Weeks, who has struggled all year as Oakland’s starting second baseman, was sent down to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday to open up a roster spot for the newly acquired Stephen Drew. Weeks was an impressive…

  11. The Athletics win in walk-off fashion again

    Aug 4, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Coco Crisp Reuters

    I’d be lying if I said I stayed up to watch the very end of this, but the Athletics topped the Blue Jays 5-4 in 15 innings last night — or, early this morning, depending on your time zone — for their major-league leading 13th walk-off win of the season. Coco Crisp played the role…

  12. Rays strike out 21 batters, lose in 15 innings anyway

    Jul 31, 2012, 3:38 AM EDT

    David Price

    The Rays had MLB’s highest strikeout game in five years Monday, fanning 21 A’s in 15 innings, only to lose 4-3 on a Jemile Weeks sacrifice fly. The 21 strikeouts were a franchise record for Tampa Bay, as well as a franchise record for A’s hitters. It was the first team a team has struck…

  13. A’s torch Blue Jays 16-0 for seventh straight win

    Jul 25, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Jemile Weeks, Josh Reddick

    The A’s had a nice little thing going over the weekend in sweeping a four-game series against the Yankees. In all, they entered their series against Toronto having won five straight games by exactly one run. Needless to say, they weren’t content with such efforts against the Blue Jays. After beating Toronto 7-2 on Tuesday,…

  14. Cliff Pennington lands on disabled list with sprained bat

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Cliff Pennington

    Well, technically it’s with a sore elbow, but no one is buying that excuse. The A’s placed Cliff Pennigton on the disabled list after his latest 0-for Thursday. He had gone hitless in four straight games, taking his average down to .197 for the season. That comes with just 17 extra-base hits, 16 RBI and…

  15. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  16. Yoenis Cespedes hits walkoff homer; A’s sweep Dodgers

    Jun 21, 2012, 6:32 PM EDT

    Yoenis Cespedes

    An ugly series for the Dodgers had an especially ugly ending Thursday, with Yoenis Cespedes hitting a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the A’s a sweep in Oakland. Josh Lindblom, one of the NL’s best setup men this season, had a terrible ninth today. He walked Coco Crisp to start…

  17. Looking at MLB’s least productive positions to date

    May 7, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Xavier Nady

    Nationals left fielders, “led” by Xavier Nady, have amassed an MLB-low .406 OPS in 101 at-bats to date, hitting just .119 with no homers and six RBI. Here’s the list of the worst OPSs by team and position so far, along with the player most responsible for the poor showing. LF Nationals – .406 (.119/.237/.168)…

  18. What Manny Ramirez brings the A’s

    Feb 20, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Manny Ramirez

    Here’s was Oakland’s projected lineup two weeks ago: 2B Jemile Weeks – S CF Coco Crisp – S LF Seth Smith – L C Kurt Suzuki – R RF Josh Reddick – L 3B Scott Sizemore – R DH Brandon Allen – L 1B Daric Barton – L SS Cliff Pennington – S And here’s…

  19. The Oakland A’s in 2014

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:32 PM EDT

    Billy Beane

    Though they’ve since made moves geared more for the short-term in re-signing Coco Crisp and trading for Seth Smith, the A’s pretty much gave up on 2012 when they shipped out pitchers Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey for youngsters. That’s still true even after they anted up $36 million for Yoenis Cespedes. Their eyes are…

  20. 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…
