OAKLAND –- Early indications are that Scott Kazmir and the A’s might have dodged a bullet with his sore left shoulder.


Left-hander Drew Pomeranz is flying back to the Bay Area to have his throwing shoulder examined, and A’s manager Bob Melvin told reporters Tuesday that Pomeranz could join the disabled list.


SEATTLE – Given the A’s injury situation and current need for pitching depth, it begs the question:

OAKLAND -– A ticket to the Pacific Coast League can be a deflating experience for a player.


OAKLAND — Hunter Strickland looked the part Saturday, glaring in at the plate, firing fastballs and getting the Giants out of a jam.
