The Oakland A’s announced their fifth Hall of Fame class on Saturday. Fittingly, there will be five members inducted into the team Hall of Fame. The A’s are set to induct players Jason Giambi, Carney Lansford, Gene Tenace, Bob Johnson, and PA announcer Roy Steele will make up the upcoming class.
One could understand why Stephen Vogt returned to the Oakland A’s. After all, this was the scene of his greatest success in the majors. He was a two time All Star during his first stint in Oakland, a productive catcher with solid pop in his bat while being a strong presence behind the plate.
Left-hander JP Sears combined with four relievers on a one-hitter, Tony Kemp blasted a three-run, go-ahead home run, and the Oakland Athletics stalled the visiting Seattle Mariners' pursuit of an American League wild-card berth with a 4-1 victory in the opener of a three-game series Tuesday night.
Tyler Soderstrom has rocketed through the Oakland A’s system this season. Now he is just one step away from the majors. The A’s prospect had started the season in High-A before a midseason promotion to Double-A.
Kevin Smith had been another disappointing youngster for the Oakland A’s this season, failing to show any of the offensive potential he possesses. The hope was that a return to Triple-A would get his bat going once again.
The Oakland A’s may not be doing much right this season, but they are on pace to set one impressive team record. As noted by Jessica Kleinschmidt on Twitter, the A’s have allowed just two passed balls thus far in 2022.
The Oakland A’s were going to need to make a move to bring Jordan Diaz to the active roster. It turns out that Ramon Laureano was the domino to fall. Diaz was officially brought to the majors on Sunday.
You know the old saying, "if it's ain't broke, don't fix it?" It applies to baseball betting too. Especially when one team is really bad. In this case, that one really bad team is the Oakland Athletics.
Sunday afternoon, the Oakland Athletics honored a member of their 1989 World Series team, Dave Stewart. Prior to the start of the club's game at RingCentral Coliseum against the Chicago White Sox, the A's retired Stewart's number 34.
