Sheldon Neuse: Moving on to Japan
Neuse agreed to a contract with the Hanshin Tigers of Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan on Friday.
Neuse lost his spot on Oakland's 40-man roster in September and will now continue his career overseas. He had an .853 OPS across his first 22 games of 2022 but finished the campaign with a .214/.273/.288 slash line in 293 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Stays in organization
The Athletics outrighted Neuse to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.
Oakland designated Neuse for assignment Saturday, but he'll ultimately stick around in the organization after going unclaimed upon being exposed to waivers. Neuse has produced a 1.018 OPS in 25 games at Triple-A this season, but he's struggled over a larger sample of 293 plate appearances in the majors in 2022, slashing .214/.273/.288 with a 27.3 percent strikeout rate....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: DFA'd by Oakland
Neuse was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Saturday.
Neuse was a regular in Oakland's lineup early in the season, but he lost out on playing time over the last few months. The 27-year-old hit just .214 with four home runs, 26 RBI, 25 runs and six stolen bases over 89 big-league games this year and will lose his spot on the 40-man roster after Ernie Clement was added to the Athletics' active roster....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: On bench in second straight
Neuse is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners.
Neuse is on the bench for the second contest in a row after going 2-for-10 with a home run and three RBI across the Athletics' first four games since he was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday. The Athletics appear content to use a committee of players to replace the spot in the everyday lineup that was opened by Elvis Andrus' release, so Neuse doesn't necessarily look on track to receive a regular role....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Slugs fourth homer
Neuse went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Rangers on Thursday.
Just recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Neuse wasted little time making an impact. Neuse had been ripping the cover off the ball with the Aviators -- he'd mustered a .393 average and .914 OPS across his last 13 games for Las Vegas -- but it remains to be seen if he can maintain that hot bat outside the hitter-friendly confines of the Pacific Coast League....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Recalled from Las Vegas
Neuse was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.
Neuse has appeared in 70 games for the Athletics this year, and he's hit .227 with three homers, 21 runs, 21 RBI and six stolen bases. He was sent down in late July but will rejoin the big-league club after Elvis Andrus was released by the Athletics on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Bumped off active roster
The Athletics optioned Neuse to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday.
Neuse will lose his spot on the 26-man active roster with the Athletics returning Seth Brown (personal) from the paternity list ahead of Friday's series opener with the White Sox. During his latest stint with the big club, Neuse appeared in 21 games and slashed .227/.271/.288 with one home run, one stolen base, five runs and four RBI.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Pops homer in loss
Neuse went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional RBI in Monday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers.
Neuse had gone 0-for-8 with two walks and four strikeouts across his previous four contests. He was able to end the skid with a fifth-inning solo shot and an RBI groundout in the eighth. The 27-year-old infielder got the start at second base against right-hander Spencer Howard -- Neuse has lost time to Vimael Machin at third base over the last week-plus. Neuse is slashing .240/.301/.318 with three home runs, 21 RBI, 21 runs scored and six stolen bases through 236 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: On bench Wednesday
Neuse is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He'll take a seat for the third time in five games while the Athletics give Vimael Machin another look at third base. Both of Neuse's two starts over the past five games have come against left-handed pitchers, so the 27-year-old looks as though he could be moving into the short side of a platoon with Machin....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Takes seat Saturday
Neuse isn't in the lineup Saturday against Seattle.
Neuse has recorded hits in each of the last seven games, and he's hit .385 with a double, two runs, two RBI and a steal during that time. However, Seth Brown will take over at first base and bat third Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Perfect night at plate
Neuse went 3-for-3 with an RBI single and a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.
Neuse's perfect night at the plate extended his hitting streak to six games, although Thursday marked his first multi-hit effort during that span. The 27-year-old's recent 12-game sabbatical in Triple-A Las Vegas, where he generated an outstanding .404/.400/.731 slash line across 55 plate appearances, seems to have done the trick for him, as he's now carrying a .324 average (11-for-34) over his first 10 games back with the Athletics....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Picks up steal in win
Neuse went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's victory over the Royals.
Neuse swiped second late in Sunday's matchup, then scored shortly thereafter on a Cristian Pache single. It was the infielder's first steal this month and his seventh of the season. Neuse has played in six straight games since being recalled by Oakland on June 21. He has five total hits during that span and has improved his season batting average to .229.... See More ...

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Starts fourth consecutive game
Neuse will start at third base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Neuse will pick up his fourth consecutive start and his fifth in six games after going 4-for-17 with two runs since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. The Athletics appear prepared to give Neuse another trial as a near-everyday player in the lineup, with the slumping Christian Bethancourt seemingly representing the biggest loser from a playing-time perspective as a result of Neuse's re-emergence....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Keeps hitting in Thursday's loss
Neuse went 2-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.
Neuse mustered the only multi-hit effort of the afternoon for the punchless Athletics. The 27-year-old has now hit safely in each of his first two games since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, a cautiously optimistic sign he may be able to carry over some of the hot hitting that was a hallmark of his two-week stint with the Aviators....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Singles, scores in return
Neuse, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, went 1-for-4 with a run in a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.
Neuse tore through Triple-A arms during his 12-game tenure with the Aviators, posting a .404/.400/.731 slash line in 55 plate appearances. His track record at the major-league level hasn't come close to matching some the prolific stints he's put together in the minors, but perhaps the time away from big-league arms and the Athletics' desperate need for offense will lead to plenty of opportunity and a longer leash over the remainder of the season....

Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Returns to big leagues
The Athletics recalled Neuse from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Neuse is back with Oakland after a productive two-week stint in the minors in which he slashed an incredible .404/.400/.731 with eight extra-base hits in 12 games. Though Neuse appears to have settled back into a groove at the plate, the Athletics may not immediately hand him the everyday role he enjoyed earlier in the season before a prolonged slump prompted his demotion to Las Vegas on June 6. The righty-hitting Neuse may instead have to settle for a short-side platoon role initially as he rejoins the Athletics.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Heads to Triple-A
Neuse was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Neuse has struggled mightily at the dish, slashing .087/.143/.087 with three RBI, one stolen base and two runs scored over his last 15 games. He'll now have a chance to get back on track at a lower level. Oakland has yet to reveal a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Remains on bench
Neuse isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Red Sox.
Neuse has hit just .065 with two RBI, a run and a stolen base over his last 10 games, and he'll be out of the lineup for a third consecutive matchup. Seth Brown will start at first base and bat cleanup while Luis Barrera takes over in left field.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Sheldon Neuse: Not starting Friday
Neuse isn't starting Friday's game against the Red Sox.
Neuse has hit just .095 with two RBI, a run, a stolen base, three walks and seven strikeouts over the last seven games, and he'll be out of the lineup for a second straight matchup. Seth Brown will start at first base while Chad Pinder takes over in left field.... See More ... See Less
