"The fact is that whatever Colon’s doing, they don’t make performance enhancers that improve your control. Colon has a 1.36 BB/9 rate, which is second only to David Price in the AL and fifth-best in Athletics history."

<p>Though an enormous cloud of suspicion hangs over the veteran right-hander, Bartolo  Colon is undeniably a top contender for the AL  Cy Young Award. On Saturday in Arlington with the Oakland Athletics clinging  to a 1-0 lead over the Texas Rangers, Colon reared back and pumped in a 94 mph heater. With the tying-run standing [...]</p>

Manager Bob Melvin told Jane Lee of MLB.com that Reddick, who hit 35 home runs in 2012, is “not an option for me swinging the bat.' "
#Athletics  
<p>On Tuesday the Oakland Athletics activated Josh Reddick from the disabled list, but it remains to be seen what role he will return to. Manager Bob Melvin told Jane Lee of MLB.com that Reddick, who hit 35 home runs in 2012, is “not an option for me swinging the bat.” Melvin was talking about Tuesday [...]</p>

"After using all his guile to navigate through a dangerous Texas lineup in the early innings, the Rangers finally caught up to Colon the third time around. Colon has now gone four straight starts without getting past the fifth inning, a stretch that dates back to the final day of July."
#Athletics   #MLB   #baseball  
<p>It was terrifying to watch as Bartolo Colon pumped in 88 mph fastballs with Adrian Beltre taking hacks. Looking at his line from Tuesday night’s loss to the Texas Rangers, it appears as though the veteran for the Oakland Athletics could have received a better fate. The right-hander lasted five innings and gave up four [...]</p>

In a three game rehab stint for the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats, he went 6-for-14 (.429) with a pair of home runs. The question is, just what kind of role will the second-year catcher be retuning to?

<p>As reported first by Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle,  Derek Norris will rejoin the Oakland Athletics on Thursday. Derek Norris went 2 for 5 with a HR at Sacramento today; he’ll be put back on Oakland’s roster on Thursday when eligible to come off the DL. — Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) September 3, 2013 [...]</p>

Josh Donaldson won't be the AL MVP, but will he grab a Gold Glove?
#Athletics   #MLB  
<p>Following the Oakland Athletics‘ three-game sweep of the Texas Rangers, Joe Stiglich of CSNbayarea.com asked if Josh Donaldson could force his way into the AL MVP conversation. There’s no doubt that Donaldson has erupted for a huge second season. However, even with his .302 average, 23 home runs, 88 RBI and .890 OPS, he’s all [...]</p>

"For Oakland, the biggest start might just come down to the team’s fifth starter, who has been coming up big as of late."
#Athletics   #MLB  
<p>The Oakland Athletics hold a 3.5 game lead over the rival Texas  Rangers in the AL West standings as the clubs are set to begin the final series of the year. Oakland has ripped off eight wins its last 10 games, while the reeling Rangers have dropped eight of 10 contests. Both teams will be feeling the heat in Arlington [...]</p>

"The weight loss seems to be having the desired effect for Griffin, who has now ripped off three straight wins. Immediately before that stretch, Griffin endured a run of three starts in which he issued 15 walks combined."

<p>According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, A.J. Griffin, right-hander for the Oakland Athletics, has been shedding extra weight. The starter, who has allowed an MLB-leading 33 home runs, has lowered his weight to 228 pounds after getting up to 240. The 6-foot-5 righty is not the first to Oakland pitcher to make [...]</p>

After taking game one of the series 4-2 and grabbing a share of first-place in the AL West standings, the Oakland A’s send out Bartolo Colon (14-5, 2.94 ERA) for game two of the series with the Texas Rangers. The right-hander makes his second start since returning from the DL, and his 26th of the season. more »
