    Josh Donaldson is arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and is likely to command a big sum of money, but the cost-conscious A’s aren’t even considering trading the star third baseman.

    The slumping Athletics appeared to be well on their way to another loss, but put together a three-run ninth inning to work off victors against the Astros on Saturday.

    Depth has been a major key to the A’s success this year, and it’s going to play a huge factor over the final five weeks of the regular season.

    The A’s and Angels are tied again at the very top of the American League West standings. Jon Lester struck out seven and allowed just one run on five hits and a walk, and Coco Crisp scored the go-ahead run on an eighth-inning wild pitch as Oakland topped the visiting Halos 2-1 on Saturday.

  9. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Bases loaded walk

    A bases-loaded walk helped the Tigers win a game. A walkoff plunking gave the Cardinals the win. And the crew in Chicago couldn’t get a tarp on the field. Can anyone around here play this game anymore?

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    The Tigers — Justin Verlander specifically — have booted the Athletics out of the ALDS in each of the last two seasons in heart-breaking Game Fives. That’s why Verlander thinks that the A’s had them in mind when they acquired Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs on Friday.

  18. Scott Kazmir is back and better than ever

    Jun 20, 2014, 11:19 AM EST

    Scott Kazmir

    Scott Kazmir finished last season very strong with a 2.57 ERA and 43/4 K/BB ratio in five September starts and pitched well overall for the Indians, but when it came time to cash in as a free agent teams proved skeptical about his career being back on track after he fell all the way down to independent ball.

    The A’s had strong words for Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado after he threw his bat during an eighth-inning incident Sunday that cleared the benches at Camden Yards.

    Phillies celebrate

    Ryan Howard walked the Phillies off with a three-run homer. Josh Donaldson did the same thing for the Athletics. Really, if you weren’t hitting walkoff three-run homers last night, we don’t want to know you.

  22. The Athletics are killing it in the run differential department

    May 18, 2014, 10:15 PM EST

    Jed Lowrie, Josh Reddick

    The Athletics have a +95 run differential after Sunday’s 13-3 victory over the Indians. There’s no other team in baseball even close to them in that department.

  23. Scott Kazmir ejected in the second inning for correctly questioning umpire Jerry Lane’s judgment

    May 17, 2014, 9:05 PM EST

    Bob Melvin, Jerry Layne, Scott Kazmir

    Umpire Jerry Layne let his pride get in the way of an otherwise good ballgame.

  24. Athletics may look to bolster starting rotation through a trade

    May 3, 2014, 11:55 PM EST

    dan straily getty

    The back of the Athletics’ starting rotation has been unreliable, so they may deal from depth to address the situation.

    Andrelton Simmons

    The other owners will have to ratify the move at their next meeting, but as of yesterday it’s all but official: the Braves now own the Nationals.
