Athletics' Kirby Snead: Outrighted to Triple-A
Oakland outrighted Snead to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
Snead, 29, gave up seven runs -- six earned -- on 14 hits and six walks over 11.2 major-league innings this season and also held an ugly 7.59 ERA in 23 appearances at Triple-A. He is now off the Athletics' 40-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Sent down to minors
Snead was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.
Snead holds a 4.63 ERA and 9:6 K:BB over 11.2 relief innings for the Athletics this season. His roster spot is being absorbed by Luis Medina (blister), who is coming off the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Takes second loss Wednesday
Snead (1-2) took the loss against the Mariners on Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on three hits and a walk over one-third of an inning. He struck out one.
Snead was tasked with preserving a 4-3 lead when he entered in the seventh inning, but he put the first three men he faced on base and ultimately allowed a two-run single to J.P. Crawford that gave the Mariners a one-run advantage they wouldn't relinquish. The southpaw's stumble snapped a 10-appearance streak without allowing an earned run and shot Snead's 1.86 ERA and 1.14 WHIP to 3.60 and 1.50, respectively.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Takes first loss Sunday
Snead (1-1) took the loss against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing an unearned run on a hit and a walk without recording an out.
Snead was called on to put out the fire after Trevor May was bounced around for five runs (three earned) over two-thirds of an inning, but the left-handed Snead wasn't up to the task, either. He issued a bases-loaded walk to the first batter he faced, Dominic Smith, and then saw the final three runs cross the plate courtesy of a fielding error by Nick Allen and a Jeter Downs game-winning RBI single. Snead hadn't allowed a run in the previous 3.1 innings covering his last four appearances, and despite the stumble Sunday, he still carries a solid 3.38 ERA over his first seven outings....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Dominant for first win
Snead (1-0) recorded the win over the Giants on Sunday, firing a perfect sixth inning during which he struck out the side.
Snead mowed through Austin Slater, J.D. Davis and Michael Conforto on swinging strikes for his trio of punchouts. The left-hander had allowed an earned run on two hits in both of his one-inning appearances following his delayed start to the season, so Sunday's outing, his third since his Aug. 1 debut, was easily his best yet....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Makes '23 debut in loss
Snead, who was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, allowed an earned run on two hits and a walk over one inning in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old southpaw was making his 2023 MLB debut after being optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on July 1 following an extended stint on the injured list due to a shoulder strain. Snead had pitched to plenty of contact with the Aviators and got only 13 of his 24 pitches in for strikes Tuesday, so he's likely to be relegated to low-leverage work with the Athletics for the foreseeable future....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Recalled from Las Vegas
The Athletics recalled Snead from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Snead has yet to pitch in the majors this season and holds a 7.20 ERA and 2.07 WHIP through 15 innings in Triple-A. However, he's surrendered just two runs while collecting 12 strikeouts across his last nine appearances, so the A's will hope to capitalize on Snead's momentum out of the bullpen.... See More ...

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Activated from 60-day IL
Oakland activated Snead (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list Friday.
Finally recovered from the shoulder strain he suffered back at the beginning of spring training, Snead will join the Athletics' bullpen ahead of Friday night's series opener against the White Sox. He allowed seven earned runs over seven innings on a not-so-encouraging minor-league rehab assignment, but the A's badly need fresh relief arms.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Optioned to Triple-A
The Athletics optioned Snead to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
Snead was activated from the 60-day injured list Friday and will now head to the minors without appearing in a game. The 28-year-old lefty put up a 7.20 ERA and 1.80 WHIP through five innings during his rehab assignment, so clearly there is still more work to do before he's worthy of a spot in Oakland's bullpen. Kyle Muller was promoted from Triple-A in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Works up to 30 pitches Wednesday
Snead (shoulder) was credited with a hold in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Round Rock on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on two hits and a walk over 1.1 innings.
Snead had to navigate some trouble that included a solo home run allowed to J.P. Martinez and pushed his pitch count to 30 in the process. The left-hander has logged at least one frame in four of his seven rehab appearances, and although he's allowed one earned run in four of his five outings with the Aviators, he appears built up enough for the relief role he'd fill at the big-league level....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Uneven in latest rehab appearance
Snead (shoulder) took the loss for Triple-A Las Vegas against Oklahoma City on Wednesday, allowing an earned run on a hit and a walk over 1.2 innings. He struck out one.
Snead worked up to 28 pitches during what was his third rehab appearance with the Aviators and fifth overall. The southpaw has surrendered an earned run in each of his outings in Las Vegas, but Wednesday marked the first time he allowed the ball to leave the yard over 5.1 frames down on the farm. Snead is seemingly built up enough for the relief role he'd fill at the big-league level were he to be activated, but the Athletics may allow him to continue knocking off rust in at least one more minor-league appearance....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Makes second appearance for Vegas
Snead (shoulder) allowed an earned run on a hit and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Reno on Saturday.
Snead worked 12 of his 18 pitches into the strike zone during another solid step toward an eventual 2023 debut. The left-hander is still rounding into shape after suffering his injury in spring training, but with 3.2 frames across four rehab appearances now under his belt, Snead could be on the verge of activation considering he doesn't need to build up much more for his projected relief role....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: First Triple-A rehab appearance
Snead (shoulder) allowed an earned run on two hits over one inning in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Reno on Wednesday. He did not issue a walk or record a strikeout.
Making his first rehab appearance for the Aviators after a couple of outings for the Athletics' AZL team, Snead struggled a bit versus the higher caliber of competition. The left-hander did get through his one frame on a relatively efficient 15 pitches, however, and he's likely to return to the mound by the weekend for another appearance.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Bounces back in second rehab outing
Snead (shoulder) fired 1.2 scoreless innings for the Athletics' Arizona Complex League team Saturday against the AZL Reds, allowing no hits and one walk while recording a strikeout.
The left-hander redeemed himself after surrendering three runs over two-thirds of an inning during his first rehab appearance Tuesday. Snead may be set to move up affiliates following Saturday's encouraging outing, but he still looks to be trending toward a late-June regular-season debut at the earliest.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Moving rehab to Triple-A
Snead (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment from the rookie-level Arizona Complex League to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Snead, who has been on the 60-day injured list all season with a left shoulder strain, made a pair of rehab outings in rookie ball this past week. He covered two innings between them, giving up three earned runs on two hits and two walks while striking out two. The 28-year-old will likely need to make several more appearances at Triple-A before the Athletics deem him ready to join the big-league bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Poor performance in AZL outing
Snead (shoulder) allowed three earned runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning for the Athletics' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Tuesday.
Snead had a rough time kicking off his rehab assignment despite the caliber of competition, drawing the start but facing only four batters before getting the hook. The left-hander's outing Tuesday will likely be one of many across multiple minor-league affiliates before he's back on the big-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Taking rehab turn Tuesday
Snead (shoulder) is expected to pitch for the Athletics' Arizona Complex League team Tuesday in what would mark his first game action since spring training, the Associated Press reports.
The left-hander has recently checked off multiple boxes in his recovery process, with a successful live batting practice session Friday at the A's' spring training complex teeing up Tuesday's activity. Snead figures to be in store for a robust amount of rehab appearances at various affiliates before being deemed ready for activation.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Rehab assignment on tap
Snead (shoulder) experienced no discomfort after throwing a live batting practice at Oakland's spring training complex in Arizona on Friday and is ready for a minor-league rehab assignment, the team's official site reports.
Snead's latest encouraging step comes on the heels of a 20-pitch bullpen session May 26 and a sim game Tuesday, both which also went off without a hitch. Consequently, the southpaw, who's been sidelined since spring training, appears set to join an affiliate in the coming days for what should be a fairly extensive rehab assignment.... See More ...

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Ready for sim game
Snead (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
Snead will get the green light to face hitters for the first time since spring training after he completed a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday with no issues. The southpaw reliever has been on the 60-day injured list all season while recovering from a shoulder strain.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Throwing again
Snead (shoulder) will throw roughly 20 pitches in a sim game Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Snead is currently on the 60-day injured list after suffering a shoulder strain in early March. He's eligible to return May 29, though that's unlikely given the state of his throwing progression. Snead could realistically return in early to mid-June following a rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
