OAKLAND -- The A’s returned from a long, season-opening road trip with a shorthanded group entering their home opener at the Coliseum.

Pache's clutch HR backs Blackburn as 'confidence' builds

April 16, 2022

TORONTO -- Cristian Pache pumped his fist rounding first base. His celebration matched the excitement coming from the Athletics’ bullpen in right-center field, where the 23-year-old’s ninth-inning homer landed to give Oakland a late lead it wouldn't relinquish. The two-run blast revived the A’s, who had seen a four-run lead

ST. PETERSBURG -- Certain baseball players possess a natural talent that just screams star potential. With each game he plays in an A’s uniform, Cristian Pache continues to show off qualities that fit such a description. The more the A’s saw of Pache in Spring Training after he joined the

April 3, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- It looked like a typical Spring Training morning in the Oakland A’s clubhouse on Sunday. Boxes of glazed Krispy Kreme donuts were laid out on a table. Four players were immersed in a card game. Others checked their phones or slowly got dressed. Typical, perhaps, because the

New beginning: Oller makes first MLB roster after winding journey

April 1, 2022

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Adam Oller had plenty of moments where he was ready to give up on his dream. The long bus rides through random Minor League cities. Endeavors into playing independent ball and overseas. There was only so much more disappointment that he could take. The way Oller’s professional

Q&A: Soderstrom on his dad, staying behind the plate

March 28, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- The Giants selected Steve Soderstrom with the sixth overall pick in 1993, and 27 years later, son Tyler joined him in the first round when the Athletics took him at No. 26. One of the best high school hitters in the 2020 class, Oakland's top prospect (No.

A's rebuild on fast track with influx of prospects

March 28, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- When the Athletics traded All-Stars Chris Bassitt, Matt Olson and Matt Chapman in a five-day span earlier this month, they received 10 prospects in return.

March 27, 2022

Nerves? Absolutely. But Oller settles nicely in first ST game experience

@MartinJGallegos
March 23, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- It’s rare that a simple Spring Training game can leave a pitcher a nervous wreck. For A’s right-hander Adam Oller, though, there was nothing simple about this one. Over the first six years of his professional baseball career, Oller had never attended a Major League Spring Training,

Here's what to know about new A's prospect J.T. Ginn

@MartinJGallegos

Criswell healthy and ready to get career back on track

@MartinJGallegos
March 11, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- Jeff Criswell had every right to feel frustrated about his 2021 season. A second-round pick by the A’s in the 2020 MLB Draft, Criswell was confined to the club’s alternate site that was set up in San Jose, Calif., that year, limited to competition against fellow A’s

@MartinJGallegos
March 8, 2022

MESA, Ariz. -- Max Muncy joined the A’s at the Oakland Coliseum for a pregame workout last July after officially signing out of high school. That day, you could see the skills that made him a first-round Draft pick. However, the size difference between him and established big leaguers was

October 18, 2021

After going through what most outsiders viewed as a down period, the A’s farm system is forming a notable crop of young prospects who should make an impact at the big league level in the near future. Though the overall system still ranks in the lower third of the league,
