Scott Kazmir left Wednesday's game vs. Detroit with a shoulder injury and his absence will further deplete a recent strength of the team.
Sean Doolittle pitched one inning in his season debut Wednesday and compared the adrenaline rush to his Major League debut in 2012.
Yoenis Cespedes has hit plenty of home runs at O.co. But his three-run shot against the A's on Wednesday served Oakland a series loss.
