Though the A's were handed another loss Friday, Oakland can look to its performance from hard-throwing rookie Sean Manaea as a bright spot.
Detroit scored just three runs off Oakland starter Sean Manaea, but the A's couldn't generate any offense off Michael Fulmer in Friday's loss.
After playing catch the past two days, A's No. 1 starter Sonny Gray will throw from the mound for the first time since landing on the disabled list.
