"He's a little bit banged up," Melvin said. "He'd typically be in there against the lefty, so we're a little bit limited."

Lawrie was out of the lineup for the second-straight game after getting the night off Monday, and Melvin said he'd have a better idea of Lawrie's status going forward after the game.

Worth noting

Reliever Sean Doolittle (shoulder) will pitch again for Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday and then potentially Friday as well. After the possible Friday outing, the A's could determine when he will rejoin the club.
