Top Athletics News

  • Athletics' Sean Murphy: Departs with illness

    Murphy was removed from Saturday's game against the Mariners due to an illness, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Murphy started behind the dish Saturday and went 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout to begin the game. He should tentatively be considered day-to-day ahead of Sunday's series finale in Seattle.

  • Athletics' JP Sears: Working behind opener

    Sears will be available behind opener Adam Oller during Saturday's game against Seattle, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Sears was initially listed as the starting pitcher for Saturday's matchup, but the team will give Oller some work to begin the game after he was reinstated from the injured list Friday. Sears hasn't been particularly effective recently, posting a 10.43 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in 14.2 innings over his last four appearances.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Serving as opener Saturday

    Oller will serve as an opener during Saturday's game against the Mariners, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Oller was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday after missing nearly a month due to rib costochondritis. While he likely won't be built up to a full workload, he'll begin Saturday's game on the mound while JP Sears presumably serves as a bulk reliever.

  • Athletics' Dermis Garcia: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Garcia isn't starting Saturday against the Mariners.

    Garcia will get a day off after he went 1-for-6 with two strikeouts over the last two games. Stephen Vogt is staking over at first base and batting seventh.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Accounts for lone run in loss

    Langeliers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Langeliers' second-inning blast was one of three hits for the Athletics, and he produced their lone run in the low-scoring game. The catcher has gone 8-for-26 (.308) with four doubles, a homer and three RBI in his last seven games. For the year, the rookie is up to a .219/.239/.406 slash line with four homers, 16 RBI, 12 runs scored, 10 doubles and a triple through 134 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Domingo Acevedo: Gives up decisive homer

    Acevedo (3-4) took the loss Friday versus the Mariners. He allowed a solo home run and struck out two in two-thirds of an inning.

    Acevedo tried to keep the game tied in the bottom of the ninth inning, but Cal Raleigh knocked a pinch-hit, walkoff home run to send the Athletics to the loss. Acevedo became the Athletics' primary closer earlier in September, but he saw a 5.2-inning scoreless streak end Friday. He has a 3.43 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 57:16 K:BB through 65.2 innings while adding four saves and 21 holds this year.

  • Athletics' Ken Waldichuk: Strikes out eight Friday

    Waldichuk allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out eight over five innings in a no-decision versus the Mariners.

    Waldichuk had some trouble in the first inning, with the lone run against him scoring on a Ty France RBI double. After that, Waldichuk didn't allow more than one baserunner in any of the next four innings before turning things over to the Athletics' bullpen. The rookie southpaw's strong effort lowered his ERA to 6.18 and his WHIP to 1.37 through 27.2 innings across six starts. He's added a 29:9 K:BB while going 1-2 in his first taste of big-league action. Waldichuk is tentatively lined up for one more start, which would be a home date against the Angels.

  • Athletics' Collin Wiles: Out for season

    Wiles (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The trip to the injured list for Wiles means his season is officially over. The 28-year-old righty made four appearances out of the bullpen for Oakland, recording a 4.66 ERA and 1.34 WHIP over 9.2 innings. Once he recovers from his strained shoulder, he should be in line to make a run at the team's opening day roster in 2023.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Reinstated from injured list

    Oller (ribs) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    After being placed on the IL with rib costochondritis on Sept. 6, Oller is officially healthy enough to help the Athletics close out the season. He will take the spot of Collin Wiles on the roster, who was placed on the injured list Friday with a strained right shoulder.

  • Athletics' Sean Murphy: Not starting Friday

    Murphy isn't in the lineup for Friday's matchup in Seattle.

    After failing to record a hit in 10 tries during Oakland's last series against the Angels, Murphy will sit down to begin Friday's game against the Mariners. Shea Langeliers will take over behind the dish for Murphy, moving Jordan Diaz into the designated hitter role and opening up second base for Jonah Bride to start, batting eighth.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Roughed up again Thursday

    Irvin (9-13) took the loss in Thursday's matchup against the Angels. He completed four innings and allowed three runs on nine hits and one walk with six strikeouts.

    Irvin was hit hard Thursday, surrendering at least nine hits for the fourth time in his last six starts. In that stretch, he has allowed 30 earned runs over 32.2 innings but has received enough run support to record three wins. He would not be so lucky Thursday, as Shohei Ohtani flirted with a no-hitter, and the Angels' bullpen shut the door in the ninth. Irvin tentatively lines up to face the Angels at home next week for his final start of 2022.

  • Athletics' Seth Brown: Gets to double-digit steals

    Brown went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

    The slugger garnered his 10th steal in 11 attempts during the loss, further enriching a season stat line that also includes 26 doubles, 25 home runs and 66 RBI. Now having produced back-to-back 20-homer seasons and flashing some solid wheels on the basepaths, Brown seemingly just needs to continue improving on his 70.5 percent contact rate to take himself to another level offensively.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Swipes 11th bag Wednesday

    Kemp went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Angels on Wednesday.

    The veteran led off and provided one of the few productive nights at the plate for a largely moribund Athletics offense. Kemp has been wielding a mostly productive bat for the last month-plus, posting a .286 average, .790 OPS, nine extra-base hits and 17 RBI over his last 28 games, all while striking out a tiny 6.1 percent clip. Both his RBI and stolen-base production are also at a career-best level this season, as Kemp has set high-water marks with 45 runs driven in and 11 thefts (in 12 attempts) across 141 games.

  • Athletics' Adrian Martinez: Takes third loss in last four

    Martinez (4-6) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits over 4.2 innings against the Angels. He struck out four.

    Martinez retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced before surrendering a solo home run to Mike Trout in the fourth inning to make it a 1-1 game. The Angels then tacked on two more runs in the frame. Martinez has now allowed three or more runs in four consecutive starts, going 0-3 over that stretch with a 9.33 ERA and 1.91 WHIP.
