FF Locker Room:
The Oakland Athletics have recalled Hideki Okajima from their Triple-A Sacramento minor league affiliate. The left-handed reliever is expected to be another arm in the bullpen. Reliever Chris Resop on the other hand didn’t have as good of a day, as he was designated for assignment by Oakland. He will have to clear waivers and accept an assignment to a farm club to remain in the system. Okajima last pitched in the majors for the Boston Red Sox back in 2011.

Turns out Brett Anderson’s injury status is far worse than believed. The A’s opening day starter, already nursing a sprained right ankle, will be out for at least the next four weeks with what the team called stress fracture in his right foot. Officially it’s a navicular stress fracture and will require rest and wearing a walking boot.

Prior to going on the disabled list on May 4 (retroactive to April 30), Young had been batting .172 with 15 RBI in 23 games with the A’s. Ten of his 15 hits are...

Josh Reddick took dry swings for the first time Saturday since going on the disabled list with a sprained wrist.
A’s manager Bob Melvin commented, “so far so good,” in response to how the session went. It is a good sign that he has not suffered a setback considering that he commented that surgery was not out of the question for him less than a week ago.

Is it time for the A’s and Brett Anderson to move on?
Brett Anderson, although a stellar pitcher when healthy, has not lived up to the hype thus far due to multiple stints on the Disabled List. It is time to seek to seek a future replacement. I would not rule out dumping him for prospects or a draft pick, if we can get anything. A major disappointment for Green and Gold country...

No debating this home run by Adam Rosales.
After being denied a game-tying homer last week in Cleveland that Major League Baseball said the umpiring crew should have reversed, Rosales hit a go-ahead shot leading off the eighth inning after Josh Donaldson connected one inning earlier in the Oakland Athletics' 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night.
The good news: Chris Young is a step closer to returning to the lineup, as the A’s reinstated the outfielder from the DL on Saturday. The bad news (well, for one person): the A’s had to once again designate first baseman Daric Barton for assignment to make room for Young.
In eight games since returning to the A’s on May 8, Barton, what’s new, hit a woeful .143/.217/.286...
OAKLAND (AP) -- Kansas City's slumping offense seemed to come alive upon the Royals' arrival in California.
That's a trend James Shields would like to see continue when he takes the mound Friday night against the Oakland Athletics, as minimal run support has left him with an unimpressive record despite some outstanding outings.
The Royals (20-17) took two of three in...
