Athletics facing roster crunch when Craig Gentry returns


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) The Athletics will face a roster crunch when outfielder Craig Gentry returns, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

The team already has four outfielders, none of which are great candidates to be sent down. Both Coco Crisp and Yoenis Cespedes are sure bets to remain with the club. Sam Fuld is out of options, but the team wants to keep him around.

That could leave Josh Reddick as the odd man out. Reddick has been a regular with the club for a couple seasons now, but got off to a slow start and can still be optioned to the minors. Reddick understands the thought behind the move. "If that is what's best for the team, they have to do what they've got to do," Reddick said. "Obviously, I'm not doing the job right now."

It's unclear if the team will consider carrying five outfielders in order to make things work.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cook will throw a side session Saturday, and if all goes well, he could return next weekend when the team faces the Mariners. "There's a chance we could see him the latter part of the Seattle series," manager Bob Melvin said. "We don't want to bring him back to early. But he certainly is an integral part to our bullpen, and we'd like to have him back as soon as we can."

Gentry remains at the team's minor-league facility rehabbing his injured back. "Everything's going well," Melvin said. "He's getting his at-bats every day, he's playing in the field, he's going back and forth between DH and playing in the field. Really, [he] may be on the same timetable, or close to it, as Cook."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2014) Athletics manager Bob Melvin told MLB.com on Thursday that outfielder Craig Gentry is "very close" to returning to the field.

Gentry has been sidelined for approximately two weeks with a lower back strain. The A's are taking a cautious approach with his recovery in the spring. No clear timetable has been established for his return.

"Once we get him out on a field, we'll see how many at-bats we can get him," Melvin said. "To an extent, a lot of it has to do with how he feels, first physically, and then at the plate. We want to make sure that we feel comfortable progressing him into a certain amount of games, a certain amount of innings.
