A. Castro - SP
Tigers optioned RHP Anthony Castro to their alternate training site.
The club hasn't announced a corresponding move. Castro made just one appearance after his call-up, allowing two runs in one inning of work.
Added 9:30 am (EST)
S. Murphy - C
Sean Murphy went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and two runs scored as the Athletics throttled the Mariners on Monday.
The 25-year-old backstop has been fighting it at the plate in the early going, slashing just .176/.364/.353 with one homer and one RBI through his first eight games. He's still functioning as the team's primary backstop though -- giving him ample opportunities to pile up counting stats.
Added 3:27 am (EST)
Ramon Laureano went 2-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs in Monday's lopsided victory over the Mariners.
Laureano got the Athletics on the board with a go-ahead two-run single during their eight-run uprising in the fifth inning. He also singled, walked and swiped his first base of the season in the ballgame. Settling in nicely in the second spot of manager Bob Melvin's lineup, Laureano is slashing .324/.419/.559 with a pair of dingers and nine RBI to go along with one stolen base through the first 10 games of the 2020 season.
Added 3:20 am (EST)
K. Davis - DH
Khris Davis crushed his first home run of the 2020 season on Monday as the Athletics routed the Mariners 11-1.
Davis victimized Mariners' reliever Zac Grotz leading off the seventh inning in this one, increasing the A's lead to 9-1. He also chipped in an RBI single in the fifth inning -- which was his first RBI of the season -- and drew a walk. Even with the 2-for-3 effort, Davis is slashing just .125/.250/.250 with a homer and two RBI.
Added 3:17 am (EST)
J. Sheffield - SP
Justus Sheffield struggled in Monday's loss to the Athletics, allowing four runs on four hits over 4 2/3 frames.
On the plus side, Sheffield punched out five on the night while issuing two free passes. He kept the A's off the board through the first four innings, but all hell broke loose in the fifth. There, the A's loaded the bases with a walk and a pair of singles, then Ramon Laureano delivered a two-run single to chase Sheffield from the game. The two inherited runners he left ultimately scored as well in an eight-run innings for the A's. He'll try to put this one behind him and work on improving his 9.39 ERA when he takes on the Rockies at home on Saturday.
Added 12:46 am (EST)
Kirby Yates surrendered a solo homer to Cody Bellinger in the ninth inning on Monday, but managed to escape with his first save of the season.
Yates came on to protect a two-run lead in the ninth inning and made things interesting by allowing a leadoff homer to Bellinger. The veteran right-hander battled back nicely though, striking out A.J. Pollock, Corey Seager and Chris Taylor in succession to end the ballgame. He still owns a miserable 13.50 ERA and 3.00 WHIP on the season, but it looks like he's going to continue to get the save chances while Drew Pomeranz works in the eighth inning.
Added 12:40 am (EST)
Cody Bellinger smacked a solo home run off of Kirby Yates on Monday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Dodgers past the Padres.
Bellinger opened the ninth inning with a solo blast off of the Padres' closer, trimming their deficit to one run -- but that would be as close as they would get. It was his only hit in four at-bats in the ballgame. The reigning National League MVP is off to a very slow start at the dish this season, slashing .159/.213/.318 with a pair of homers and five RBI.
Added 12:36 am (EST)
Walker Buehler wasn't at his best in a no-decision against the Padres on Monday, allowing three runs on three hits over his five innings of work.
The right-hander struck out three and walked three on the night. All of the damage done against him came via the long ball -- serving up solo shots to Trent Grisham, Wil Myers and Fernando Tatis Jr. Buehler wound up throwing 79 pitches in the game, 43 of them for strikes. He'll look to improve upon his 5.19 ERA and 1.15 WHIP when he takes on the Giants at home on Sunday.
