Athletics' Ryan Noda: Slugs 16th homer
Noda went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Twins on Thursday.
Noda's eighth-inning solo blast snapped a 1-1 tie and proved to be the difference in the game. The homer snapped an extended power drought for the rookie, who's now reached safely in six straight games but had last left the yard Sept. 11, a span of 14 contests.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Belts 15th long ball
Noda went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-0 victory versus the Astros on Monday.
Noda struck out in each of his first three plate appearances but finished on a high note with a 400-foot solo homer in the ninth inning. The stat line is pretty indicative of his season as a whole -- of Noda's 81 hits, 36 have been for extra bases (including 15 homers), but he's also struck out 138 times in 423 plate appearances. Noda has fanned 14 times through 10 contests in September, but he's managed a decent .270 batting average along with three homers, eight runs and seven RBI.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: On base thrice in loss
Noda went 2-for-4 with a walk and a run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday.
Noda extended his modest hitting streak to three games with Sunday's multi-hit effort, his first since Sept. 1. The rookie is heading into the final stretch of the regular season with some solid momentum, having posted a .273/.385/.839 slash line with six extra-base hits and 10 RBI across the 19 games he's played since returning from an injured list stint due to a jaw fracture. Noda has also encouragingly demonstrated an improvement in his ability to make consistent contact during that sample -- he posted a 32.5 percent strikeout rate in the first 100 games of the season, but he's cut that figure down to 24.4 percent since his IL return....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Slugs 13th homer Sunday
Noda went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and an additional run in a win over the Angels on Sunday.
Noda ignited the Athletics' rally from a 3-0 deficit in the sixth inning with a 406-foot shot to center and Zack Gelof aboard. The rookie has now hit safely in four straight games, and he boasts a .310 average and .942 OPS overall across the 13 contests he's suited up for since returning from a stint on the injured list due to a fractured jaw....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Thrives as in-game replacement
Noda entered Friday's win over the Angels as a pinch hitter in the fourth inning and remained in the game at first base, going 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a run.
The 27-year-old lined out to center in his pinch-hit appearance, but he proceeded to deliver in his final at-bat of the night with an eighth-inning double that drove in Zack Gelof. Noda now has five RBI over his last seven games and pushed his OPS back over the .800 threshold (.803) for the season with Friday's production.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: Multi-hit effort in loss
Noda went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in a loss to the Mariners on Wednesday.
Noda continued to operate out of the leadoff spot and snapped a 1-for-14 funk with his second multi-hit effort over the last six games. The 27-year-old came within a hair of his second multi-RBI tally in that same period on his seventh-inning flyout, but Esteury Ruiz was thrown out at the plate. Despite the recent brief skid, Noda has been in productive form overall since returning from a fractured jaw Aug. 21, producing a .273 average, .809 OPS and significantly improved 19.5 percent strikeout rate over the 10 games he's played since....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Records third steal Thursday
Noda went 1-for-5 with a stolen base and a run in a win over the White Sox on Thursday.
The rookie slugger led off for only the fifth time this season and crossed the plate with the go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Zack Gelof's two-run home run. Noda has reached safely in each of his first four games back from a stint on the injured list due to a jaw fracture, although he's still searching for his first extra-base hit since July 18....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Rakes out of leadoff spot
Noda went 3-for-5 with an RBI single, a two-run home run, a walk and an additional run scored in a win over the White Sox on Friday.
Noda continued the hot hitting that's been his trademark since returning from the injured list, authoring his first multi-hit effort and slugging his first homer since July 18 in the process. The rookie's .813 OPS is also at its highest point since June 21, and he's encouragingly struck out just twice in his first 20 plate appearances since returning from the IL (34.0 percent strikeout rate going into the sample)....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: On base thrice in return
Noda (jaw), activated from the injured list earlier in the day, went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs in a win over the Royals on Monday.
Noda picked up right where he left off in both his four-game rehab assignment and his pre-IL-stint at the big-league level. The rookie's walk rate is up to a stellar 17.9 percent following Monday's pair of free passes, helping lead to an elite .382 on-base percentage for the season. Now that he's back to full health, Noda should return to a near-everyday role while primarily logging time at first base.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: Returns from injured list
The Athletics reinstated Noda (jaw) from the 10-day injured list Monday.
Noda will rejoin the big club after he recently completed a four-game rehab stint with Triple-A Las Vegas, during which he went 4-for-10 with two home runs and two doubles. Before fracturing his jaw in mid-July, Noda had been one of the Athletics' more productive hitters, and he should immediately reclaim a near-everyday spot in the lineup against right-handed pitching. The Athletics demoted Tyler Soderstrom to Triple-A in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: Pair of homers in Vegas
Noda (jaw) started in right field and played seven innings in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to Reno on Saturday, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a two-run homer, a walk and an additional run.
Noda was able to play defense for the second consecutive night and looked to be no worse for wear while slugging a pair of round-trippers. The 27-year-old has gone 4-for-10 with two doubles, the pair of homers, five RBI, eight walks and seven runs across four rehab games with the Aviators, supporting the notion he's ready to be activated at any time....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Full rehab game on defense
Noda (jaw) started at first base and played a full game in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Reno on Friday, going 0-for-2 with four walks and three runs.
As his final line implies, Noda was extremely patient at the plate and cashed in with runs on three of his trips on the bases. However, the most important aspect of his night was his ability to play a full game on defense, which seemingly sets the stage for a return to the big-league club at any time going forward....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Hits well in first two rehab games
Noda (jaw) went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI, three walks and a run over two rehab games with Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Noda led off in both games, and although he filled the designated hitter role Tuesday, he was able to play first base for seven innings Wednesday. With his timing at the plate apparently no worse for wear after going on the injured list July 19, Noda may only need one more rehab game before being deemed ready to return.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: Set to start rehab assignment
Noda (jaw) will begin a rehab assignment this week with Triple-A Las Vegas, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Noda has been out of action since mid-July due to a fractured jaw, but he is nearly ready to resume playing in games. With Noda going straight to Triple-A, he will have a chance rejoin the big club before August comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ryan Noda: Taking another step Saturday
Noda (jaw) will take live batting practice Saturday, the Associated Press reports.
Noda was originally slated to take live batting practice Tuesday against Mason Miller (elbow) before it was determined he'd wait a few more days. The recovering rookie is apparently now ready to step back into the batter's box and take some hacks, and if all goes well, he could be set for activation in the coming days without the need for a rehab assignment....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Needs more time before live BP
Noda (jaw) did not take live batting practice Tuesday as originally planned but has been medically cleared to play in games if he's comfortable, the Associated Press reports.
The report seems to indicate Noda hasn't suffered any form of physical setback, but rather, that he's actually made steady ongoing progress. However, given the nature of his injury, he may need a bit more time to mentally prepare for stepping back into the batter's box under any setting. The rookie remains without a firm return timetable as a result, but if and when he does embark on a rehab assignment, it's likely to be of short duration given he hasn't been sidelined an inordinate amount of time....

Athletics' Ryan Noda: Set for live batting practice
Noda (jaw), who's been swinging a bat since late July, is slated to take live batting practice against Mason Miller (elbow) on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
It's another key step for Noda as he works to return from the fractured jaw he suffered during pregame warmups July 19. Assuming all goes well with the live BP, the Athletics will map out a more definitive plan and timetable for the remainder of Noda's recovery later in the week. For the moment, the rookie remains within the approximate three-week return timetable he was given when first injured.... See More ... See Less
