  • Athletics' Jasseel De La Cruz: Joins Oakland on MiLB deal

    De La Cruz signed a minor-league contract with the A's on Tuesday, Melissa Lockard of The Athletic reports.

    De La Cruz spent 2022 with Atlanta on a minor-league deal and will now make his way out west. The 25-year-old has a 7.21 ERA across 68.2 innings at the Triple-A level across the past two seasons.

  • Athletics' Kevin Cron: Back in affiliated ball with Oakland

    Cron signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 8.

    Cron, the younger brother of the Rockies' C.J. Cron, spent the past two seasons in Asia. After playing in 2021 with the Hiroshima Carp of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, Cron moved over to Korea in 2022, joining the SSG Landers. Over 67 games with the Landers before being released in July, Cron slashed .222/.255/.420 with 11 home runs in 259 plate appearances. The 29-year-old will likely begin the 2023 campaign with Triple-A Las Vegas or Double-A Midland.

  • Athletics' Pablo Reyes: Catches on with Oakland

    Reyes signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 14.

    After being outrighted off the Brewers' 40-man roster in late October, Reyes elected free agency rather than sticking around in the Milwaukee organization. Though he won't immediately get a spot on Oakland's 40-man roster, Reyes should have the opportunity to compete for a utility role with the big club in spring training. Reyes saw action in six games at the MLB level in 2022, going 4-for-15 at the dish.

  • Athletics' Rico Garcia: Links up with Oakland

    Garcia signed a minor-league contract with the Athletics on Nov. 14.

    Garcia is expected to open the 2023 campaign at Triple-A Las Vegas, though he'll likely get the opportunity to attend Oakland's big-league camp this spring as a non-roster invitee. He made six appearances out of the Baltimore bullpen in 2022 but otherwise spent the majority of the season at Triple-A Norfolk, where he produced a 2.34 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 34.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Brent Rooker: Claimed by Oakland

    Rooker was claimed off waivers by the Athletics on Thursday.

    Rooker was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Tuesday but will land a spot on the Athletics' 40-man roster. He appeared in 16 major-league games between the Padres and Royals last year, and it's possible that he's forced to begin the 2023 season at Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • Athletics' Hogan Harris: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Harris was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    Harris turns 26 in December and has made just eight starts at Triple-A, logging a 6.35 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 39:17 K:BB in 28.1 innings. Given his control issues and age, it might make sense for Harris to work in low-leverage situations out of the big-league bullpen at some point in 2023.

  • Athletics' Lawrence Butler: Added to 40-man roster

    Butler was added to the Athletics' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    A physically impressive corner outfielder and designated hitter, Butler hit .270/.357/.468 with 11 home runs, 13 steals and a 31.5 percent strikeout rate in his age-21/22 season at High-A. Now that he is on the 40-man roster, the clock will be ticking on Butler to adjust to a higher level of pitching at Double-A.

  • Athletics' Daulton Jefferies: Loses 40-man spot

    The Athletics outrighted Jefferies (elbow) to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

    Oakland removed Jefferies from the 60-day injured list last week, but it was strictly a procedural move while the team weighed whether or not to tender him a contract for the 2023 season ahead of Friday's deadline. Given that Jefferies underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career back in September and had turned in poor ratios (5.75 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 9.5 K-BB%) over his 56.1 innings in the big leagues, it likely wasn't a tough decision for the Athletics to remove him from their 40-man roster. He'll stick in the organization and while he spends the entire 2023 season rehabbing from elbow surgery.

  • Athletics' Collin Wiles: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Wiles (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Wiles was called up by Oakland in mid-September and appeared in four games before he finished the season on the injured list. The right-hander was a starter at Triple-A Salt Lake for most of the year and had a 5.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 106:27 K:BB in 143.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Sam Selman: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Selman was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Selman spent the final two weeks of the season in the big leagues but is no longer on the 40-man roster. He appeared in 16 games for the A's last season and had a 4.91 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 18:5 K:BB across 18.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Norge Ruiz: Sent to Triple-A

    Ruiz was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The right-hander finished the season in the majors but won't stick on the 40-man roster through the offseason. Ruiz appeared in 14 games out of the bullpen last season and had a 7.11 ERA, 1.95 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB over 19 innings.

  • Athletics' Austin Pruitt: Loses spot on 40-man roster

    Pruitt was outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Pruitt appeared in 39 games for Oakland in 2022 but won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster through the offseason. He had a 4.23 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 38:9 K:BB across 55.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Nate Mondou: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The Athletics outrighted Mondou to Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The 27-year-old was promoted for his first taste of the big leagues during the final week of the season, and he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in his lone appearance. Mondou had a .283/.374/.431 slash line in 108 games at Las Vegas and is likely to receive an invite to big-league camp in February.

  • Athletics' Yonny Hernandez: Claimed by Oakland

    Hernandez (calf) was claimed off waivers by the A's on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Hernandez finished the season on Arizona's injured list with a calf strain, and he was recently removed from the 40-man roster. The 24-year-old appeared in 12 big-league games in 2022 and went 2-for-24 with two runs and two stolen bases.

  • Athletics' Conner Capel: Notches first career steal

    Capel went 1-for-2 with a sacrifice fly, a stolen base and a run in a win over the Angels on Wednesday.

    The rookie recorded one of only four hits for the Athletics on the afternoon and was busy otherwise, opening the scoring by driving in Stephen Vogt with a fifth-inning sac fly. Capel's brief big-league stint with the A's after being claimed off waivers from the Cardinals was impressive, as he delivered a .371 average, 1.025 OPS and struck out at an acceptable 20.0 percent clip over 40 plate appearances following a Sept. 20 promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • 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.
