Reds' Chad Pinder: Latches on with Cincinnati
Pinder signed a minor-league contract with the Reds on Monday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Pinder appeared in 111 games a season ago for Oakland, slashing .235/.263/.385 with 12 home runs, 42 RBI, two stolen bases and 38 runs scored. He figures to compete for a spot in the outfield with TJ Friedl, Jake Fraley and Stuart Fairchild, however, Murray notes that Pinder has taken reps in center field and at shortstop over the offseason to put himself in a position to crack the Opening Day roster....

Pinder went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Sunday's 10-3 win over the Mariners.

The versatile 30-year-old is up to a .234/.261/.383 slash line with 12 home runs, 42 RBI, 38 runs scored and two stolen bases through 108 contests.

Pinder went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk in a win over the Astros on Saturday.
Pinder took Jose Urquidy deep in the fourth inning to start the Athletics' comeback from a 4-1 deficit. The blast was Pinder's 12th of the season and second of September, leaving him within striking distance of the career-high 15 round trippers he slugged back in 2017.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Three hits, two runs Tuesday
Pinder went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Rangers.
Pinder has been all-or-nothing at the plate lately -- he's gone 5-for-21 with a pair of multi-hit efforts over his last nine games. The utility man's productive game Tuesday lifted his season slash line to .237/.263/.391 with 11 home runs, 41 RBI, 34 runs scored, 17 doubles and two stolen bases through 340 plate appearances. His versatility affords him more than just a platoon role, but the righty hitter doesn't have a clear path to a true everyday role.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Ejected Sunday
Pinder was ejected from Sunday's game against the White Sox in the top of the second inning for arguing a foul-ball call, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Pinder had a close foul-ball call down the line during his at-bat in the bottom of the first inning Sunday go against him and continued to argue with an umpire as he headed out to right field to begin the second inning. He was ultimately ejected from the game, but it seems unlikely that Sunday's incident will result in further disciplinary action.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Stellar as in-game replacement
Pinder entered Tuesday's loss to Atlanta as a pinch hitter in the bottom of the fifth inning and remained in the game at third base and subsequently left field, going 2-for-2 with a three-run home run.
Pinder delivered his big blast during his pinch-hit at-bat, driving in Dermis Garcia and Sean Murphy to knot the game at 9-9 at the time. The veteran had been hitting just .205 over the 40 plate appearances he'd logged in the 14 games prior to Tuesday, and the homer was his first since Aug. 9.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Timely knock in win
Pinder went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in an extra-inning win over the Marlins on Wednesday.
The veteran put the first two runs of the day on the board with his sixth-inning single, which plated Nick Allen and Shea Langeliers.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Multi-hit effort in loss
Pinder went 2-for-3 with an RBI single in a loss to the Mariners on Friday.
Pinder mustered the only multi-hit effort of the night for the punchless Athletics, his second such tally in his last two starts. The veteran utility man has been swinging a productive bat since prior to the All-Star break; Friday's tally puts his batting average and OPS at .265 and .793, respectively, over his last 23 games. During that stretch, he's contributed 19 RBI thanks largely to 10 extra-base hits (five doubles, five home runs) and a .333 average with runners in scoring position.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Breaks out of slump with two hits
Pinder went 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored in Wednesday's 7-2 victory over Texas.
Pinder was held out of the lineup three out of the last four games as he had been mired in a 1-for-16 slump since Aug. 8, but he broke out of it with two base hits Wednesday. Pinder is now slashing .233/.260/.396 on the season and could potentially hit his way back into the starting lineup as long as Ramon Laureano remains on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Chad Pinder: Retreats to bench
Pinder is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.
After going 2-for-11 with a solo home run, a double and a walk while starting in three of the past four games, Pinder will head to the bench with right-hander Touki Toussaint on the hill for the Angels. The righty-hitting Pinder still projects to see most of his starts against left-handed pitching moving forward, though he'll occasionally get opportunities versus righties, too.... See More ...

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Clubs 10th homer
Pinder went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Angels.
Pinder prevented the shutout in the ninth inning, but the Athletics never threatened for a comeback. Five of the utility man's 10 homers this year have come in his last 17 contests, though his long ball Tuesday was his first since July 26.

Pinder is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Pinder will take a seat after he went 8-for-30 with two home runs, two doubles, eight RBI and three additional runs while starting in eight of the Athletics' first 10 games out of the All-Star break. The Athletics don't have a clear-cut everyday position available for Pinder at the moment, but he should continue to pick up a handful of starts per week as a super-utility man.... See More ...

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Swats second grand slam in July
Pinder went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Astros.
Pinder has enjoyed a resurgent July, batting .302 with four homers (including two grand slams) and 17 RBI in 15 contests this month. The 30-year-old's big blast in the third inning was all the offense the Athletics needed to secure Tuesday's win. The utility man is now slashing .247/.272/.418 with nine long balls, 33 RBI, 26 runs scored and two stolen bases through 68 games this year. He's drawn much of his recent playing time in left field or at first base, though the hot hitting should go a long way to keeping him in the lineup against both lefties and righties.... See More ...

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Power surge persists in loss
Pinder went 2-for-5 with a two-run double, a solo home run and an additional run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Pinder wreaked havoc on Rangers pitching in a wild last two innings for the Athletics, first igniting a seven-run rally with his eighth-inning two-bagger and then following it up with a 384-foot laser to left field in the ninth, his eighth homer of the season. The 30-year-old has been on an impressive power-hitting tear since prior to the All-Star break, posting seven extra-base hits (four doubles, three homers), 12 RBI and a .750 slugging percentage over the 33 plate appearances covering his last eight games....

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Three-hit effort in win
Pinder went 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in a win over the Astros on Sunday.

The veteran utility asset's multi-hit effort was his first since July 1 and extended his hitting streak to four games, a stretch during which he's gone 6-for-16 with two doubles, two home runs and eight RBI....

Athletics' Chad Pinder: On pace for best numbers since '19
Pinder, who went 1-for-3 with a grand slam and an additional run in an extra-innings win over the Rangers on Tuesday, is on pace for his best home run and RBI numbers since 2019.
The veteran utility man has rediscovered his power stroke by leaving the yard in back-to-back games after going well over a month without a homer, and the pair of round trippers has pushed him one over his 2021 season tally of six in 15 fewer games. Moreover, Pinder now needs just six homers over the Athletics' remaining 73 games to match his season totals from both 2018 and 2019, while his current tally of 24 RBI is a manageable 23 away from the career-best 47 he mustered during the latter campaign....
