On the A’s podcast with Jeremiah:

#1 Jeremiah, the A’s designated Jed Lowrie for assignment which could mean Lowrie could be claimed on waivers, he could take a minor league assignment, or he could be outrighted released from the club.

#2 Lowrie had played in 14 seasons in Major League Baseball and has appeared in 1307 games, he has 1185 career hits, 121 home runs, and 594 RBIs his numbers were respectable.

#3 The A’s played some of their future prospects starter JP Sears and centerfielder Cal Stevenson who went 1-3 with a run, hit and an RBI and Sears started Wednesday’s game for the A’s pitching 5.1 innings, three hits on two earned runs and three strike outs. It was an encouraging performance from their rookies.

#4 The Los Angeles Angels came in and did a lot of damage taking three games from the A’s. The most memorable game of the series came on Tuesday night when Shohei Ohtani pitched and was the designated hitter. As pitcher Ohtani started and went six innings gave up four hits, three walks and five strikeouts. Ohtani as DH hit a home run deep into the right field stands for his 25th of the season.

#5 Jeremiah, the A’s are in Houston to open a three game series against the Astros at Minute Maid Field. The A’s will be going with Adam Oller (1-4, 7.63) he’ll be opposed by the Astros Luis Garcia (8-8, 3.93) a 5:10 pm PDT firsts pitch.
