Athletics' Kirby Snead: Ready for sim game
Snead (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a simulated game Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
Snead will get the green light to face hitters for the first time since spring training after he completed a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday with no issues. The southpaw reliever has been on the 60-day injured list all season while recovering from a shoulder strain.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Throwing again
Snead (shoulder) will throw roughly 20 pitches in a sim game Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Snead is currently on the 60-day injured list after suffering a shoulder strain in early March. He's eligible to return May 29, though that's unlikely given the state of his throwing progression. Snead could realistically return in early to mid-June following a rehab assignment.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Lands on 60-day IL
Snead (shoulder) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday.
Snead was shut down from throwing in early March due to a left shoulder strain, and he'll be sidelined for at least the first two months of the season. The 28-year-old received his first substantial run in the big leagues last year and had a 5.84 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 35:22 K:BB over 44.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: First career save
Snead threw 1.1 scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner to earn the save Wednesday against the Angels.
Snead entered the game with a one-run lead and successfully maintained the advantage to tally his first career save. Despite the positive close to the campaign, Snead maintained only a 5.84 ERA with a 35:22 K:BB across 44.2 innings. He is very unlikely to see regular save chances in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Takes first loss Thursday
Snead (1-1) took the loss against the Mariners on Thursday, allowing two earned runs on two hits, a walk and a wild pitch over two-thirds of an inning.
His messy line during a brief 17-pitch outing came after the southpaw inherited a one-on, no-out situation from starter Adrian Martinez. Snead opened September with three straight scoreless appearances, but he's allowed six earned runs on 10 hits across 4.1 innings over his subsequent five trips to the mound.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Impressive in multi-inning outing
Snead fired two scoreless innings in a loss to the Astros on Friday, allowing two hits and a walk while recording four strikeouts.
Snead has been impressive since his most recent promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas on June 21, forging a 1.59 ERA and not allowing a home run over 5.2 innings across five appearances. The 27-year-old southpaw is likely to struggle to garner many hold opportunities, much less save chances, as the Athletics have typically found multi-inning leads hard to come by this season....

Athletics' Kirby Snead: Recalled by Oakland
Snead was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Snead made the Opening Day roster but was sent down after posting an 8.74 ERA and 2.38 WHIP in 11.1 innings of relief. His 4.61 ERA across 13.2 frames for Las Vegas isn't particularly impressive, but it does at least come with a strong 20:3 K:BB.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Sent down Friday
Snead was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports.
Snead picked up four holds in April, but he struggled over six appearances since the start of May, posting a 15.19 ERA and 3.38 WHIP in 5.1 innings. The southpaw will attempt to sort things out in the minors, while Jacob Lemoine was recalled by the Athletics to take on a bullpen role.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Records fourth hold
Snead recorded his fourth hold in a win over the Giants on Wednesday, firing a scoreless one-third of an inning.
The southpaw was brought on to face Brandon Belt in a same-handed matchup with Austin Slater on second base and two out. Snead induced an inning-ending flyout from Belt in a five-pitch at-bat, making it a short but effective night for the 27-year-old. After allowing two earned runs to the Phillies in his first appearance of the season, Snead has now generated six consecutive scoreless efforts.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Put right to work in return
Snead (undisclosed) fired a scoreless ninth inning in a loss to the Rangers on Saturday, allowing a hit while recording a strikeout.
Snead had spent the prior eight days on the COVID-19 IL, but he didn't miss a beat in his return to action. The southpaw has been serviceable in a relatively low-leverage role thus far, recording a pair of holds alongside a 4.15 ERA across five appearances.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Returns off injured list
Snead (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Saturday.
Snead missed eight days of action and spent time on the COVID-19-related IL, but he is ready to reclaim a spot in Oakland's bullpen. Expect him to work in middle relief for the club moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Moves to COVID-19 IL
Snead (undisclosed) was transferred to the COVID-19 injured list Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Snead was on the restricted list for the series in Canada this past weekend, potentially because he's unvaccinated and unable to travel to Canada, and he's now shifted to the COVID-19 IL. It's unclear whether the 277-year-old has tested positive for the virus, but he'll remain unavailable for now.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Placed on restricted list
Snead (undisclosed) was placed on the restricted list ahead of Friday's series opener in Toronto, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
The Athletics didn't provide a reason for Snead's placement on the restricted list, but it appears likely that the move was made since he's unable to travel to Canada due to being unvaccinated. Zach Logue and Ryan Castellani were called up to provide bullpen depth against the Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Makes Opening Day roster
Snead will open the season as one of three left-handers in the Athletics' bullpen, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Snead just arrived in Oakland on March 16 as part of the trade that sent Matt Chapman to the Blue Jays, and he put together a solid spring that included a 1-0 record and 3.60 ERA across five innings in six appearances. The 27-year-old also made an impression during his first taste of the big leagues last season in Toronto, recording a 2.35 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in seven outings. He'll likely see plenty of matchup-based work to start the season in a fluid role behind closer Lou Trivino.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Kirby Snead: Dealt to A's in Chapman trade
The Athletics acquired Snead and fellow minor-league prospects Kevin Smith, Gunnar Hoglund and Zach Logue from the Blue Jays on Wednesday in exchange for third baseman Matt Chapman, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Oakland has been in full-on tear-down mode since the lockout ended last week, with the team having now moved Chapman, first baseman Matt Olson and starting pitcher Chris Bassitt in trades over the past few days. Snead is just one of a number of incoming prospects into the Oakland system, and he projects as one of the more MLB-ready new arrivals. The 27-year-old lefty got the chance to make his big-league debut with the Blue Jays late last season and impressed over seven relief appearances, as he struck out seven and allowed two runs over 7.2 innings. He should have a decent chance at breaking camp with the Athletics as a middle-relief option.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kirby Snead: Optioned to Triple-A
Snead was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.
Snead spent just three days with the big-league club and didn't make a single appearance. He'll head back to the minors as the Blue Jays activate Hyun Jin Ryu (neck) ahead of his scheduled start against the Yankees.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kirby Snead: Rejoins big-league club
Snead was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
Snead had a one-day stint with the Blue Jays in early September and will now return to the major-league club. The 26-year-old has appeared in seven games for Toronto and given up two runs on seven hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over 7.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kirby Snead: Sent back to Triple-A
Snead was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.
Snead was only on the big-league roster for a single day and did not make an appearance. The move clears a spot for the Blue Jays to add recent waiver claim Jake Lamb to the active roster.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kirby Snead: Called up by Blue Jays
Snead was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.
Snead spent nearly two weeks with the Triple-A club after he was sent down Aug. 23, and he allowed an unearned run in two innings across two minor-league appearances since then. The southpaw has recorded a 2.35 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 7.2 innings across seven appearances with the Blue Jays this year and will be pitch mainly in low-leverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Kirby Snead: Returns to minors
Snead was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.
Snead has spent the past couple weeks in the majors and appeared in five games, giving up three runs (two earned) on five hits with four strikeouts and two walks over six innings. He has a 1.95 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 43:12 K:BB across 32.1 innings at Triple-A this season, and he's a likely candidate to rejoin the Blue Jays when bullpen help is required down the stretch....
