Athletics' Conner Capel: Sent outright to Triple-A
Oakland outrighted Capel to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports.
Capel made the Opening Day roster out of camp this spring, but he has spent the majority of this season with Las Vegas and is slashing .212/.316/.349 over his last 76 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League. Oakland claimed him off waivers from the Cardinals last September.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Optioned to Triple-A
Capel was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Capel has been one of the Athletics' better hitters this season, especially from an on-base percentage perspective with a .372 mark. He nonetheless finds himself back in the minors, at least for a while.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Records fifth steal Thursday
Capel went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.
The 26-year-old drew the start in right field and came up with the first stolen base since his promotion last Friday. Capel can play all three outfield positions and should see semi-regular playing time as long as Ramon Laureano (hand) is on the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Sitting Tuesday
Capel is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Yankees, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Capel will remain on the bench for a third straight game after he started Friday following his call-up from Triple-A. It seems as if JJ Bleday has supplanted him in the outfield at this point.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Called up Friday
Capel was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
Capel will return to the big leagues after he was sent down May 3. He'll help fill in for Ramon Laureano (hand), who was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday. Capel has produced a .297 batting average with three homers, 21 RBI, 22 runs scored and eight stolen bases over 37 games with Las Vegas.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Raking with Aviators
Capel owns a .303/.370/.451 slash line with 10 extra-base hits and 19 RBI across 135 plate appearances with Triple-A Las Vegas since being optioned May 3.
Capel was holding his own at the big-league level with a .258 average and .347 on-base percentage over 75 plate appearances in the Athletics' first 26 games, but he was a victim of the team's desire to give JJ Bleday a look against major-league arms. Capel's ongoing success with the Aviators is of little surprise considering the hitter-friendly environment of many Pacific Coast League parks, as well as the 26-year-old's own track record at the highest levels of the minors dating back to his time in the Cardinals' organization. With Bleday offering mixed results in the majors thus far -- he's generated a .214/.319/.398 slash line across 113 plate appearances -- it's possible Capel sees a promotion sometime this summer....

Athletics' Conner Capel: Optioned to Triple-A
The Athletics optioned Capel to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Capel appeared in 26 games with the Athletics and slashed .258/.347/.318 over 75 plate appearances with no homers along with four stolen bases in seven attempts. The outfielder has been sent down to make room for JJ Bleday with Bleday recalled from Las Vegas in the corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Steals fourth base Sunday
Capel went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
The capable outfielder extended his hitting streak to six games and recorded his fourth steal of the season in the process, once again proving to be one of the lowly Athletics' most consistent bats. Capel pushed his average and on-base percentage to .298 and .353, respectively, with Sunday's production, and he continues to be a steady lineup fixture against right-handed pitching.... See More ...

Athletics' Conner Capel: Settling into everyday role
Capel will start in right field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Cubs.
Capel will draw his fifth start in six games, with his inclusion in the starting nine Wednesday being more noteworthy than usual since the Cubs are bringing a lefty (Justin Steele) to the hill. Though the Athletics would ideally prefer to limit the lefty-hitting Capel to a strong-side platoon role, the loss of the team's top two corner outfielders (Seth Brown and Ramon Laureano) to the injured list looks like it could give Capel a chance to play regularly against both lefties and righties....

Athletics' Conner Capel: Reaches three times in loss
Capel went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run in a loss to the Mets on Friday.
The 25-year-old was busy while churning out his second multi-hit effort of the season. Capel has made just five starts thus far, but he's managed to reach safely in each on his way to an early .292 average through his first 27 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: On bench Wednesday
Capel is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.
Capel had started the last three games after Seth Brown (oblique) was placed on the injured list, but he'll cede left field to Tony Kemp in the series finale. In those three starts, Capel went 2-for-11 with a double and a stolen base.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Gets second straight start
Capel will start in left field and bat seventh in Monday's game in Baltimore.
Capel will stick in the lineup for the second game in a row after going 0-for-2 with a walk in Sunday's 11-0 loss to the Rays. With Oakland moving Seth Brown (oblique) to the 10-day injured list Monday, the lefty-hitting Capel could have relatively clear path to a strong-side platoon role in the corner outfield for at least the next week and a half....

Athletics' Conner Capel: Swipes two bags as pinch runner
Capel appeared as a pinch runner in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to the Guardians, stealing two bags.
Capel ran for Shea Langeliers after the catcher reached on a single in the ninth inning with the score tied 4-4. Capel managed to reach third base with a pair of thefts, but Oakland was unable to bring him home. Capel stole 21 bases in the minors in 2022, so he has speed to burn. However, he's not an everyday player for Oakland, so his fantasy appeal is marginal.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Remains out of lineup

Athletics' Conner Capel: Busy on bases in loss
Capel went 2-for-4 with an RBI infield single, a walk and a run in an extra-inning loss to the Guardians on Monday.
Capel drew the start in right field, his first since Opening Day. Although, as was the case in that game, he struck out twice, Capel also put the Athletics' first run of the game on the board by legging out an infield single in the second and driving home Jace Peterson in the process. The 25-year-old, who did commit a costly gaffe in the eighth inning on a ball off the bat of Jose Ramirez that turned a would-be single into a triple, boasts a history of solid contact rates from his six-season-plus minor-league career and should continue to see his fair share of playing time against right-handed pitching....

Athletics' Conner Capel: Sits against lefty again
Capel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.
The lefty-hitting Capel was included in the Opening Day lineup while the Athletics opposed right-handed Shohei Ohtani, but he'll sit for the second day in a row with the Angels bringing another lefty (Tyler Anderson) to the hill. Seth Brown, Esteury Ruiz and Ramon Laureano will form Oakland's outfield from left to right, while Brent Rooker serves as the Athletics' designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Conner Capel: Sitting Saturday
Capel will hit the bench for Saturday's game against the Angels.
Capel hit second and served as the designated hitter against righty Shohei Ohtani on Opening Day, going 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts. He was replaced by Brent Rooker with lefty Aaron Loup on the mound in the eighth inning, and it will be Rooker who gets the start Saturday against southpaw Patrick Sandoval. Early indications point towards a platoon between the pair.... See More ... See Less
