Worth noting

• The A's on Monday called up righty Jesse Chavez, who was acquired from the Blue Jays on Aug. 24 for cash considerations. He posted a 1.80 ERA in two games (one start) for Triple-A Sacramento and also tossed eight scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts in the River Cats' playoff victory Thursday.

Chavez will pitch out of the bullpen for the A's. Though he's not expected to see much action in the coming weeks, he gives them long-relief depth.

Of the surging A's, he said, "They're playing really well, playing good fundamental baseball. You kind of just want to come in and help out right away."

• Lefty Jordan Norberto (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing, and it's unclear whether the reliever will pitch again for the A's this season.
