Oakland A's center fielder Coco Crisp was held out of Saturday's 2-0 loss against the Los Angeles Angels after a wall collision Friday (video here and below), and will not play in Sunday's finale. Closer Sean Doolittle, on the DL with a right intercostal strain, is "feeling better" but not ready for on-field work. Shortstop Jed Lowrie (finger) began a rehab...
The Oakland Athletics made a move that will bring Adam Dunn on to try and help bolster the line up as they eye post season baseball.
In August, the Oakland Athletics have seen their once-potent offense fall of a cliff. The team has hit just 22 home runs this month to go along with a line of .224/.304/.351. The trade of Yoenis Cespedes has had much to do with those struggles, but nearly every other regular has struggled as well, most notably Jonny Gomes, Brandon Moss, Jed Lowrie, Derek Norris, Alberto Callaspo...
Matt Olson epitomizes power and patience. The 20-year-old Oakland Athletics prospect leads the California League in home runs (36) and walks (116). Playing first base for the Stockton Ports, he has a .260/.403/.540 slash line going into the final two days of the minor league season. Olson has fanned 136 times, but he projects as […]

Oakland Athletics center fielder Coco Crisp left Friday nights' game with the Los Angeles Angels after crashing into the wall in attempt to rob Chris Iannetta of a home run. Initial indications are that Crisp sustained a neck strain. It took a few minutes for Crisp to gather himself, but he eventually walked off the field under his own power.

Oakland A’s center fielder Coco Crisp exited Friday night’s game against the Angels in the fifth inning with a strained neck after a formidable effort to rob what turned into a two-run homer from Chris Iannetta.
Crisp, who has also been bothered by the same injury various times this season, is considered day to day.
“He doesn’t feel as bad as the last time right now...

Oakland A’s catcher John Jaso was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list this past week since his concussion symptoms have worsened over the past two weeks. He told the press that he was struck by a hard foul tip that bounced off of his face mask back in early August when the Oakland A’s were playing the Tampa Bay Rays. As of today, it is unclear as to how long...
The Oakland Athletics’ first baseman, Brandon Moss, had a fantastic first half to the 2014 season; he was elected to his first All-Star appearance of his eight-year career.
Before the All-Star break, Moss had a batting line of .268/.349/.530 as well as 21 home runs and 66 RBIs. However, since the break, Moss has seen a serious decline, resulting in very poor numbers – a batting...
The Oakland A’s bullpen was shaken up once again earlier this week when closer Sean Doolittle was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right intercostal muscle. Even though Doolittle said he already felt better after the game on Sunday, the A’s are being cautious and sitting him out for awhile since even a mild strain of this muscle could take some time to recover...
During a recent Oakland Athletics game, a fan of the team who brings a drum to the ballpark to sound his support for the squad was particularly unimpressed with a like-minded fan who also has a proclivity for percussion-based antics, specifically how his cohort elects to tip back a brewski instead of focusing upon […] The post A’s drumming fan not impressed with fellow drumer’s...
Relatively new ESPN analyst and former Oakland Athletics pitcher Dallas Braden was a part of the Sunday Night Baseball broadcast of A’s-Angels last night. He went out into the people for a segment on, allegedly, the rowdiest fans in baseball.

Barring some sort of unforeseen event, Jon Lester will not be pitching for the Oakland A’s next season. Oakland can’t afford him. And the more Lester talks, the more it sounds like he is hoping the Boston Red Sox make him a competitive enough offer that he can return to the place where he started […]
