Jesse Chavez wasn't fooling the Astros on Monday night, as they tagged him for three home runs en route to a 7-3 win over the A's.
The injury to Craig Gentry has opened the door for speedy 24-year-old outfielder Billy Burns, who impressed the A's during spring training.
Craig Gentry was hit on the right hand on a bunt attempt Sunday, and an MRI Monday morning provided the A's with some bad news.
