A's put Green, Ynoa on 40-man roster
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
A's put Green, Ynoa on 40-man roster The A's shielded two of their more high-profile young players from the upcoming Rule 5 draft, placing infielder Grant Green and right-hander Michael Ynoa on the 40-man roster Tuesday. The A's also moved right-hander Arnold Leon and outfielder Shane Peterson onto the roster, outrighted right-hander Andrew Carignan, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, to Triple-A Sacramento and designated right-hander Jim Miller and infielder Brandon Hicks for assignment. Leon, who missed most of 2010 and 2011 after Tommy John surgery, is 1-0 with an 0.79 ERA in 12 relief appearances in the Mexican Winter League. The most high-profile A's prospect left unprotected for the Rule 5 draft is 2007 first-round pick James Simmons, a right-hander who had a 1.59 ERA in 12 games with Phoenix in the Arizona Fall League.

Jemile Weeks not among A's call-ups
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Jemile Weeks not among A's call-ups When rosters expanded Saturday, the A's called up only two players - and neither was second baseman Jemile Weeks. Oakland called up shortstop Brandon Hicks, who was in the lineup to give Stephen Drew a day off; Drew's 2011 season was ended by a severe right ankle fracture, and manager Bob Melvin wants to get him some rest here and there. The A's plan to leave erstwhile shortstop Cliff Pennington at second base, splitting time with Adam Rosales. Sacramento, which won its record sixth consecutive Pacific Coast League division title last week, opens the playoffs Wednesday against Reno at Raley Field. The A's have embraced the songs "Moving Like Bernie" and "Bernie Lean," based on the comedic "Weekend at Bernie's" movies (1989 and '93) about two co-workers hauling around and propping up the corpse of their murdered boss to pretend he's alive as the hit man tries to finish the job.

A's Brandon Inge to get MRI on shoulder
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
A's Brandon Inge to get MRI on shoulder Brandon Inge's right shoulder, dislocated the previous night, was too sore for him to play Sunday, and the A's are sending him back to the Bay Area for an MRI exam Monday. If everything checks out and it's simply a matter of pain tolerance, he can handle that more easily than a DL stint, "because 15 days to me feel like an eternity," he said. Inge popped his shoulder back into the socket himself Saturday evening, then drove in the go-ahead run the next inning. Josh Donaldson opened the season with the A's at third base, and he is batting .335 at Triple-A Sacramento, but if the A's need a more middle-infield type, Brandon Hicks also is at Sacramento - along with top 2009 draft pick Grant Green, whose call-up has been eagerly anticipated by fans. Yes, extra games would be played after the season to break ties for division leads and wild-card spots, with scenarios in place for even four-way ties - which would require three ...

A's turn up the walk-off drama
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
A's turn up the walk-off drama [...] it all seemed worthwhile as the A's found themselves just 3 1/2 games behind the first-place Texas Rangers in the A.L. West and left yet another stunning imprint on the baseball landscape. Just two syllables say it all - far more comfortably than "game-ending RBI" or something even more convoluted - and thus it entered the baseball lexicon. Igniting an explosive new gear in an instant, he beat the throw for the type of infield single most players could not imagine. Just when it seemed Price had matters under control with a 3-2 lead in the seventh, Brandon Hicks - that very essence of improbable A's baseball - hit a massive opposite-field homer to tie the game. The A's have a far stiffer challenge in trying to reach the postseason - and if they pull it off, they'll own the regular-season bragging rights. Rookie Mike Trout returned from a two-game absence (knee contusion) Monday night, resumed his pursuit of the batting titl ...

Deadline deals are there, for a price
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Deadline deals are there, for a price Sabean's Giants, in first place by two games after the Dodgers lost Monday night, need help offensively if only because they're hitting .225 with runners in scoring position and .182 with two outs and runners in scoring position, both figures second-to-lowest in the National League. Beane's A's, a half-game out of the second wild card, suddenly are the majors' hottest team, getting production from almost every position, the biggest exception at shortstop, where Cliff Pennington and Brandon Hicks have combined to hit .197. With runners in scoring position, he's a .300 hitter with a .444 on-base percentage. The Twins and Cubs are in all-out trade mode, based on their lousy status in the standings, but for Willingham and Castro, Sabean and Beane would need to surrender a bundle and a half. If Sabean is talking with teams about help in the lineup and bullpen, he might as well consider the rotation, too, because he has had only ...

Plucky A's offer reason for hope
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Plucky A's offer reason for hope For a team that is hard to pin down because of ever-shifting personnel, that became one defining characteristic - the A's can come back and win games in the late going. The gumption Oakland showed in the first half combined with outstanding pitching makes the team a difficult assignment for any opponent, and the A's believe that combination also would make them dangerous down the stretch and in any postseason scenario. The A's traded three All-Star pitchers, Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey, and didn't suffer at all, though the team has had at least two and often three rookies in the rotation and the closer role. Jarrod Parker, from the Cahill deal with Arizona, has the makings of an elite starter; Tommy Milone, courtesy of the Gonzalez deal with Washington, looks to be a steady, reliable lefty starter; and Cook (Cahill deal) made the All-Star team. The A's pulled third baseman Brandon Inge and first baseman Brando ...

Critical errors sink A's in Texas again
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Critical errors sink A's in Texas again In the fifth inning, two infield errors and a rundown that wasn't executed properly led to five Texas runs, all unearned. Thanks to Oakland's sloppiness, an appreciative Josh Hamilton got to bat in the inning and smoked a three-run homer. Five batters later, Elvis Andrus hit an apparent inning-ending grounder to shortstop Brandon Hicks, who booted it to permit Hamilton an at-bat. A's starter Tommy Milone, who surrendered one earned run, also made a defensive miscue in the inning when he fielded a comebacker and had Cruz caught between third and home but was slow to throw to Kurt Suzuki, who tagged Cruz for the first out. [...] runners advanced to second and third, and two batters later Ian Kinsler hit a two-out, two-run single. Thursday, the A's led 4-2 before Tyson Ross and Jim Miller engaged in a fifth-inning walk-fest, enabling the Rangers to score four runs, and an unearned run in the sixth proved the difference in ...

Big bullpen means lonely dugout
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Big bullpen means lonely dugout Considering the inexperience of the rotation, pitching depth seems wise, plus, according to manager Bob Melvin, the team would like to be careful with rookie relievers Sean Doolittle and Ryan Cook and not overuse either one. Left-hander Doolittle worked 1 2/3 innings Sunday and struck out three, running his total in 8 2/3 innings to 17 strikeouts. To make room for Scribner, infielder Eric Sogard was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento. Brandon Hicks, called up the day before, can handle every infield position and he is a right-handed hitter; Sogard hits left. Sacramento reliever Danny Farquhar, picked up on waivers two weeks earlier from Toronto, was designated for assignment to make room for Griffin on the 40-man roster. The A's got their fifth walk-off win of the season with Derek Norris' three-run homer Sunday; that's two more than their total of last year.
