  • Athletics' Shintaro Fujinami: Serving as opener Friday

    Fujinami will serve as the Athletics' opener Friday against the Marlins, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Fujinami's first season in the majors has certainly been rough, as he holds a 12.00 ERA and 1.97 WHIP through 30 innings. However, he's seen an uptick in performance recently, allowing one run on one hit over 2.1 frames. Fujinami will likely stay in Friday's game for an inning or two before turning things over to Hogan Harris, who will take on most of the workload.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Drawing start Friday

    Harris is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Marlins in Miami.

    Harris will be making a second straight turn through the Oakland rotation, this time operating as a traditional starter after he served as a bulk reliever his last time out. In his return to the big leagues last Saturday, Harris turned in one of the best performances from an Oakland pitcher all season, limiting a tough Astros lineup to one hit and one walk while striking out five over five scoreless frames.

  • Athletics' Ken Waldichuk: Works out of bullpen

    Waldichuk pitched the seventh inning of Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Atlanta, giving up one earned run on two hits and one walk while striking out one.

    After pitching an inning as an opener in front of Luis Medina in his last appearance Sunday against the Astros, Waldichuk filled a more traditional relief role Wednesday for the first time all season. Though Oakland likely still views Waldichuk as a starter over the long haul, he looks as though he'll be relegated to the bullpen after logging a 7.40 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in 48.2 innings over his first 10 outings of the season.

  • Athletics' Carlos Perez: Garners RBI in rare start

    Perez went 0-for-3 with an RBI groundout in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.

    Making only his third start since May 21 for a resting Shea Langeliers, Perez was able to contribute one of two Athletics runs on the afternoon with his sixth-inning grounder. The veteran backstop has made relatively good use of his intermittent opportunities, producing a career-best .268/.337/.402 slash line over 92 plate appearances. With fellow veteran Manny Pina (wrist) on the 60-day injured list and out indefinitely, Perez's role as Langeliers' occasional fill-in appears secure.

  • Athletics' Esteury Ruiz: Busy on bases Wednesday

    Ruiz went 0-for-4 with a stolen base and was also caught stealing on a second attempt in a loss to Atlanta on Wednesday.

    The speedy outfielder reached on a fielding error in his first plate appearance and promptly stole second base before getting caught trying to swipe third. The successful theft snapped a rare three-game drought in that category for Ruiz, who's comfortably setting the MLB pace in steals with 28 in 33 attempts.

  • Athletics' James Kaprielian: Suffers sixth loss

    Kaprielian (0-6) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during a 4-2 defeat against Atlanta. He struck out four.

    Kaprielian allowed three or fewer runs for the third time over his past four starts, but he still suffered his sixth loss of the season. The veteran right-hander moved to a relief role in mid-April before being sent to Triple-A Las Vegas, but he got another shot in the rotation in mid-May with Drew Rucinski (illness) and Paul Blackburn (finger) sidelined and has been relatively successful. Blackburn has since been activated, but Kaprielian appears to have done enough to remain in the rotation for the time being. His next start is tentatively scheduled during a three-game set in Pittsburgh.

  • Athletics' JJ Bleday: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Bleday is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Bleday will head to the bench for the series finale while Atlanta brings rookie southpaw Jared Shuster to the hill. While all of Ramon Laureano, Seth Brown, Brent Rooker and Esteury Ruiz are available, Bleday doesn't have a clear-cut path to regular playing time in the outfield or at designated hitter, though Oakland manager Mark Kotsay managed to make room in the lineup for Bleday in each of the previous three contests.

  • Athletics' Seth Brown: Day off versus lefty

    Brown is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus Atlanta, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Brown will take a seat as the Athletics face off against Atlanta left-hander Jared Shuster on Wednesday. Brent Rooker will take over in left field while righty bat Aledmys Diaz enters the lineup at designated hitter and bats sixth as Oakland goes for the sweep.

  • Athletics' Shea Langeliers: Resting Wednesday

    Langeliers is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus Atlanta, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Langeliers will get a breather after he went 4-for-13 with a double, three RBI and a run scored while starting the last four games. Carlos Perez will draw the start at catcher and bat fifth as the Athletics go for the sweep over Atlanta.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Sitting in third straight

    Kemp is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Kemp will predictably hit the bench with southpaw Jared Shuster on the bump for Atlanta on Wednesday, but the 31-year-old infielder also sat out Monday and Tuesday, when Oakland faced right-handers Michael Soroka and Bryce Elder. At this point, Kemp appears to have lost hold of a strong-side platoon role at second base while he's sporting a lowly .455 OPS over 162 plate appearances on the season.

  • Athletics' Shintaro Fujinami: Gets second win Tuesday

    Fujinami (2-5) got the win against Atlanta on Tuesday, retiring the only batter he faced on a foul pop-up.

    Fujinami, who's experienced a mostly nightmarish start to his MLB career after a largely successful multi-season stint in Japan, fittingly got the victory on a night in which the Athletics established only their second two-game win streak of the season. The starter-turned-reliever has his own modest stretch of success going at present, as he's allowed just an earned run on one hit over the 2.1 innings covering his last three appearances, a sample in which he hasn't walked a batter after issuing 24 free passes over his first 27.2 frames.

  • Athletics' JP Sears: Quality start in no-decision

    Sears allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision versus Atlanta on Tuesday.

    Sears was able to limit the damage to a Kevin Pillar solo home run in the third inning. After throwing just 59 pitches in his last outing, Sears was back up to 90 pitches (59 strikes) Tuesday. He's allowed just four runs over his last 22.1 innings spanning four starts, but he remains in search of his first win of the campaign. The southpaw has a 4.37 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 54:11 K:BB over 59.2 innings through 11 starts this season. Sears is projected to make his next start on the road in Pittsburgh.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Sitting second straight

    Rooker isn't starting Tuesday against Atlanta.

    Rooker has been one of the few bright spots in Oakland's lineup all season, but a prolonged slump at the plate will cost him to miss his second consecutive start. Ramon Laureano will instead serve as Oakland's designated hitter Tuesday, allowing JJ Bleday to start in left field and bat sixth.

  • Athletics' Jace Peterson: Not starting Tuesday

    Peterson isn't in the Athletics' lineup Tuesday against Atlanta.

    Peterson will take off Tuesday after recording his first RBI in 11 games during Monday's contest. While Peterson sits, Jonah Bride will start at third base and bat seventh.

  • Athletics' Tony Kemp: Sitting Tuesday

    Kemp isn't starting Tuesday against Atlanta.

    Kemp hasn't recorded a hit in his last 14 at-bats, so he will begin Tuesday's contest in the dugout as Oakland searches for offensive production. Aledmys Diaz will take over at second base Tuesday and bat fourth.

  • Athletics' Esteury Ruiz: Reaches base four times

    Ruiz went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI in Monday's 7-2 win over Atlanta. He also reached base on a hit by pitch.

    Ruiz wasn't able to add to his league-leading stolen-base total (27), but he was able to raise his on-base percentage from .328 to .338 after reaching first base four times on the night. Despite leading off in each of his starts since April 16, Ruiz has been limited to 24 runs on the season, which speaks to the lack of impact bats behind him in the Oakland lineup.
