OAKLAND — Henderson Alvarez had another encouraging minor league rehab outing Saturday, and it’s looking more realistic that the A’s could welcome the right-hander back on their next homestand.
OAKLAND – Jesse Hahn handed the ball to manager Bob Melvin and headed for the A’s dugout, his walk accompanied by a heartfelt standing ovation from the Coliseum crowd.
OAKLAND – So maybe the fairy tale could have gone even better for Sean Manaea on Friday.
He could have put up all zeroes on the scoreboard, got a ‘W’ next to his name.
OAKLAND – As the A’s welcome two new members into their starting rotation, they hope they’re not parting ways with Chris Bassitt for a prolonged period.
