Worth noting

• Outfielder Yoenis Cespedes returned to the lineup on Sunday after only pinch-running in Saturday's game due to a sprained right wrist, which occurred on Friday night. The rookie was at designated hitter instead of outfield to help keep the stress on his wrist light.

• Shortstop Cliff Pennington, recovering from left elbow tendinitis, was back in the A's clubhouse on Sunday after spending two games with Triple-A Sacramento on a rehab assignment. Melvin indicated that Pennington could be reinstated from the 15-day disabled list soon.
