On the A’s podcast with Jeremiah:
#1 The Oakland A’s announced on Wednesday that pitcher James Kaprielian (3-9, 4.79) will be return to the starting rotation after being sent to the bullpen. Kaprielian was sent to the bullpen when the A’s were in Baltimore during last weekend’s series.
#2 Kaprielian had a struggle in Washington against the Nationals last Wed Aug 31 at Nationals Stadium in a 5-1 loss. After some careful thought and with starter Adam Oller join the 15 day IL due to a rib injury Kaprielian is back in the rotation.
#3 On Oller’s injury Oller said it was a freak accident that when he would start throwing and warming up again the pain would go away but it didn’t and hence he’s place on the 15 day IL.
#4 The A’s had Ramon Laureano back in the line up over the two game series against the Atlanta Braves at the Oakland Coliseum. Laureano did struggle at the plate Wednesday afternoon going 0-4 including getting hit by a pitch.
#5 Jeremiah let’s take a look at the Chicago White Sox who are also out of the AL Wild Card hunt by 7.5 games like the A’s there are call up and rookies fighting for jobs so it should be a competitive four game series which started tonight.
