Bob Melvin


OAKLAND – After lining the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 10th Sunday, Mark Canha wound up on the receiving end of some pretty hard contact too.


OAKLAND – Josh Reddick is listed as doubtful for Monday’s game, but neither he nor A’s manager Bob Melvin sounded overly concerned about the outfielder’s back injury.


OAKLAND – Kendall Graveman received plenty of praise from his A’s teammates Friday night.

What they’d really like to give him is some run support.


OAKLAND – Newly acquired lefty Felix Doubront is expected to arrive Saturday, and the A’s see him as a potential factor in the starting rotation.
