Sean Doolittle - R
Athletics placed LHP Sean Doolittle (shoulder) on the 15-day disabled list. You could see the writing on the wall after Doolittle missed fielding practice on Saturday. His velocity was way down Wednesday and it's clear he's still battling a nagging...

Sonny Gray - S
Sonny Gray pitched eight innings of two-run ball to beat the Yankees on Friday. It's the ninth time in 11 starts this season that Gray has allowed two runs or fewer. He's looking like a legitimate AL Cy Young contender with his 6-2 record and 1.82 ERA.

Brett Lawrie - 3B
Brett Lawrie hit his fourth homer Friday in the win over the Yankees. Lawrie is batting .296 in May after coming in at .229 in April. Still, we'd be more encouraged if it didn't come with a 27/3 K/BB ratio. Incidentally, that's identical to...

Eric O'Flaherty - R
Eric O'Flaherty is expected to make his final appearance in a minor league rehab game with... He has been sidelined since early May with left shoulder inflammation. Before hitting the shelf, the 30-year-old southpaw posted a troublesome 11.57 ERA and 2.29 WHIP over...

Drew Pomeranz - S
Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first minor league rehab start with High-A... He will work two innings in his first outing and build up from there. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to rejoin the rotation in late June

Matt Olson - 1B
Athletics prospect 1B Matt Olson went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and three walks on Thursday... The home run was the seventh of the season for Olson, who finished third in the minor leagues last season with 37. The 21-year-old slugger is batting just .236 through his...

Cody Ross - OF
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Cody Ross is receiving interest from clubs looking to sign... It sounds like Ross isn't ready to jump at any of the offers, though, preferring to hold out for an ideal situation. The 34-year-old was released by the A's earlier this...

Tyler Clippard - R
Tyler Clippard gave up one run but evaded further damage to earn his fifth save of the season... Clippard had himself to blame for the run after inexplicably walking Garrett Jones -- who has been hitting like your grandfather has been cooking -- with two outs. Brett...

Billy Burns - OF
Billy Burns finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Thursday's 5-4 victory... Billy Burns is apparently the new Rickey Henderson. He's hit two homers in the past five games (and also smacked a double). How surprising is that? Well, Mr. Burns hit a...

Kendall Graveman - S
Kendall Graveman allowed three runs on seven hits across 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against... He struck out four and walked two. Same old story, here: The 24-year-old is effective when he keeps his mediocre stuff down, but it gets hit hard when left up in the zone...

Scott Kazmir - S
The Athletics plan to skip Scott Kazmir's (shoulder) next start. There was nothing significant found in Thursday's MRI, which would be a nice break for the oft-injured left-hander. It sounds as though the team is optimistic that Kazmir...

Coco Crisp (neck) is scheduled to undergo an epidural on Monday and will be sidelined at least... The hope remains that he will be able to avoid surgery, though it continues to look unlikely that he will be fantasy relevant this season. Billy Burns will continue to...
