Drew Pomeranz


PHOENIX –- The A’s are still in no rush to throw Sean Doolittle back in the closer’s role, and they can afford to be patient based on the way Drew Pomeranz handled the ninth inning Saturday.


BALTIMORE –- After a 13-inning game that drained the A’s bullpen, as well as their emotions, Oakland at least would have liked to come away with a victory Friday night.


OAKLAND -– A’s players said their goodbyes to left-hander Scott Kazmir shortly before taking the field for Thursday’s matinee against the Toronto Blue Jays.
