INJURY UPDATES

10-day and 15-day IL

LHP Cole Irvin (left shoulder tendonitis)
Expected return: Late May
Coming away feeling healthy from his bullpen session prior to Oakland’s series opener against the Angels on May 13, Irvin is now set to make a Minor League rehab start with the Single-A Stockton Ports on May 17. With his injured list placement retroactive to May 2, the left-hander could return soon after his rehab outing. -- Martín Gallegos (Last updated: May 13)

OF Skye Bolt (Right oblique strain)
Expected return: Late May
Bolt, who landed on the 10-day IL retroactive to April 7 with a right oblique strain, will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on May 13, manager Mark Kotsay said. -- Dawn Klemish (Last updated: May 12)

RF Stephen Piscotty to IL with calf strain
Expected return: Late May
Following the May 7 game against the Twins, A’s manager Mark Kotsay revealed that an MRI for right fielder Piscotty showed a Grade 1 strain in his left calf, which required a stint on the injured list. -- Martín Gallegos (Last updated: May 8)

C/1B Stephen Vogt (right knee sprain)
Expected return: TBD
Vogt was diagnosed with a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee, which led to his early exit in Oakland's loss to the Orioles on April 20 after a collision at first base with Cedric Mullins on a ground ball and eventual placement on the injured list on April 21. The veteran catcher will be wearing a knee brace for the next few days, and the club is uncertain at this point as to how much time he might miss. -- Martín Gallegos (Last updated: April 21)

60-day IL

RHP Deolis Guerra (right forearm tightness)
Expected return:
Unknown
Guerra underwent Tommy John surgery, which was performed by Dr. Keith Meister in Dallas on April 13. The right-hander will remain in Texas until April 15 before returning to Oakland to begin his rehab work. -- Martín Gallegos (Last updated: April 13)

RHP Brent Honeywell Jr. (right elbow)
Expected return: Unknown
Honeywell has been partaking in range-of-motion workouts and strength training, but he remains shut down from all baseball activities as the A’s monitor the stress reaction in his right elbow that sidelined him after just two outings in Spring Training. A re-scan of the right-hander’s elbow will likely take place in late April or early May, giving the A’s a better indication about a possible timeline for a return. -- Jesse Sanchez (Last updated: April 8)
