Keep track of the Athletics' recent transactions and injury updates throughout the season.


June 14: None


10-day IL

CF (right hip strain)
Expected return:
Possibly Wednesday
After taking swings off reliever J.B. Wendelken in a live batting practice session prior to Monday’s game, Laureano is set to run the bases on Tuesday. A’s manager Bob Melvin said that the baserunning drill will be the final hurdle for the center fielder to clear. If Laureano comes away from that feeling healthy, there’s a chance he could be activated from the injured list in time for Wednesday’s series finale against the Angels. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (strained left oblique)
Expected return: Upcoming road trip
Wendelken is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. The right-hander should be activated at some point during the A’s upcoming 10-game road trip, which begins Friday at Yankee Stadium. (Last updated: June 14)

RHP (sprained right elbow)
Expected return: TBD
Fiers felt discomfort when attempting to throw off flat ground earlier this week, leading to the A’s shutting him down for a couple of days. He continues to take part in plyometric exercises and could make another attempt at throwing in the upcoming week. (Last updated: June 12)

60-day IL

RHP (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return: August
Rosenthal, who underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome on April 8, is currently with the team in Oakland and has been rapidly progressing through his strength program, per manager Bob Melvin. The right-hander still is not playing catch, which is the next big step in his progression, but the club has given a “loose” timetable of mid-August for his return. (Last updated: June 10)
