Ramon Laureano (oblique) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Cal Stevenson: Racking up free passes
Stevenson went 0-for-3 with a pair of walks and a stolen base in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.
Making his first career start out of the leadoff spot, Stevenson did his part by drawing the pair of free passes and also put his speed on display on the bases. Though he's off to a 2-for-13 start to his big-league career, he's drawn five walks over his first five games to prop his on-base percentage up to .389. Stevenson looks like he'll continue to get steady run as Oakland's everyday center fielder.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Cal Stevenson: Starts in first three MLB games
Stevenson, who was promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, is hitting .286 (2-for-7) with two walks and a run over his first three major-league games. He's also been caught stealing once.
The promising prospect earned the callup after slashing a stellar .305/.417/.542 with the Aviators over 16 games following his acquisition from the Rays organization. Stevenson has held his own against big-league arms thus far in the very small sample of nine plate appearances, and his 67 stolen bases over 338 minor-league games gives him some upside in that department....

Athletics' Cal Stevenson: Receives call-up to Oakland
The Athletics selected Stevenson's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday. He'll start in center field and bat ninth in his MLB debut Wednesday against the Angels.
Stevenson will take over the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster spot of designated hitter Jed Lowrie, whom the Athletics designated for assignment in a corresponding move. The 25-year-old Stevenson was acquired from the Rays earlier in the summer in the deal that sent Christian Bethancourt to Tampa Bay, and since joining the Oakland organization, he produced a .305/.417/.542 slash line with three home runs and six stolen bases over 72 plate appearances at Triple-A. The lefty-hitting Stevenson has played all three outfield spots in the minors this season and could get a look as an everyday player in his first taste of the big leagues, though the Athletics will likely try to limit his exposure to southpaws....

Athletics' Cal Stevenson: Sent to Oakland
Stevenson and Christian Fernandez were traded from the Rays to the Athletics on Saturday in exchange for Christian Bethancourt, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson is a 25-year-old with no big-league experience who hasn't been considered much more than a fringe prospect. He's shown good plate discipline this season, combining a 15.4 percent walk rate with a 20.7 percent strikeout rate, and his nine steals in 57 games with Triple-A Durham give him a path to fantasy relevance if he earns regular playing time. He's found himself in an organization where that playing time shouldn't be too hard to claim, but his 104 wRC+ (the product of a .265/.376/.353 slash line) at the Triple-A level isn't particularly inspiring....

Rays' Cal Stevenson: Dealt to Tampa Bay
Stevenson and Petyon Battenfield were traded from the Astros to the Rays on Thursday in exchange for Austin Pruitt, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Stevenson has yet to play above High-A in his brief minor-league career, finishing the 2019 campaign with High-A Fayetteville. After being traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros at the trade deadline, he appeared in 23 games for Woodpeckers, slashing .247/.390/.346 with nine RBI and two stolen bases.... See More ...

Astros' Cal Stevenson: Sent to Houston
Stevenson was traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros along with Joe Biagini and Aaron Sanchez in exchange for Derek Fisher on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
A 10th-round pick by the Blue Jays in 2018, Stevenson has posted strong numbers in 90 games for High-A Dunedin this season, hitting .298/.388/.393 with five homers and 11 steals. His plate control has been particularly impressive, as he owns a 12.8 percent walk rate and a 13.3 percent strikeout rate. He owns an excellent 114:76 BB:K thus far as a professional.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Cal Stevenson: Jumps to High-A
Stevenson will open the year with High-A Dunedin, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.
Stevenson only played in rookie ball after the Blue Jays selected him in the 10th round of last year's draft, so this is a pretty big jump in levels for the 22-year-old outfielder. Of course, given his age and the fact he had almost as many steals (21) as strikeouts last year (24), he is deserving of this challenge. If he carries over that success at a more age-appropriate level this year, he could become a top-200 prospect for dynasty leagues.... See More ... See Less
