News
Athletics pitcher Jesse Chavez is making a push to join the starting rotation this year, even though he doesn't know if he's earned it yet.

"I think I opened eyes enough, but I don't think I did enough because I didn't keep it," Chavez said at Spring Training on Monday. "Now, if I get it, I gotta keep it. That's my mentality. I wanna ride it out."

Chavez reported to camp a bit heavier than he ended the 2014 season, weighing it at 170 pounds after finishing last year at 157.

"I feel way stronger," he said. "That's such a cliche thing for me to say, but for my size, it's a huge deal, and I can tell just by playing catch, the early side sessions, the way the ball's coming out, it just feels like I don't have to use anymore extra effort now that I've built all that muscle."

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday he still views Billy Butler as the primary DH against right-handed pitchers, per the San Francisco Chronicle. He added Butler will also play some first base against left-handed pitchers, but Ike Davis will see most of the playing time at first base vs. right-handers.
Mark Canha

News
Athletics manager Bob Melvin indicated that Mark Canha may see playing time in the outfield as well as at first base, the Associated Press reports.

"Canha can go against lefties or righties and even play some outfield," Melvin said.

Acquired after being selected by the Rockies in the Rule 5 draft this offseason, Canha has spent most of his minor-league career at first base but has seen 83 appearances in left field and nine in right field, as well as 29 at third base and one behind the plate. He hit .303/.384/.505 with 20 home runs and 82 RBI in 465 at-bats with Triple-A New Orleans in 2014.

News
Athletics catcher Josh Phegley is hoping to win a starting job with his new club, according to MLB.com.

Phegley came over in the Jeff Samardzija trade during the offseason, and sees this as the first time he'll be seriously considered for the starting job. Manager Bob Melvin agreed, saying Phegley has "got a great opportunity to be that guy." 

The 27-year-old had chances at playing time with the White Sox over the past few seasons, but the club opted to go with Tyler Flowers instead. Coming over to the A's should speed up the process for Phegley. "I was extremely surprised, but very excited when I heard I was coming over here," he said. "Anytime you get traded, that team obviously wants you. Everything I've heard, all the feedback I've gotten, it looks like I've got a pretty good opportunity."

Phegley has hit .207/.221/.332 over 241 career at-bats in the majors.

News
Athletics outfielder Craig Gentry said Tuesday he was able to have a normal offseason after dealing with multiple injuries during the 2014 season, MLB.com reports.

"I was able to do everything that I normally do with no issues," he said. "Last year was frustrating. It's tough to get into the groove of things and get in a rhythm when you're playing and then you're not playing. Trying to find your way on a new team and then you're hurt all the time, that was definitely the toughest part. Hopefully this year will be better."

Gentry showed up to camp last spring injured after hurting his back on the drive from his offseason home in Dallas. He then broke his hand on a bunt attempt in midseason and suffered a concussion in September that prevented the outfielder from appearing on the team's postseason roster. He was cleared to return at the start of October but the team was unable to make it past the AL Wild Card Game.

Gentry delivered his worst season as a semiregular in 2014 while battling the various injuries, hitting .254/.319/.289 with no home runs and 20 stolen bases in 232 at-bats. He's expected to split time with Sam Fuld in left field this season.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday infielder Marcus Semien will be given every opportunity to win the starting shortstop job. However, Melvin reiterated Semien will have to earn his spot in the starting lineup.

Semien's biggest competition for the starting shortstop job is likely Eric Sogard.

News
The Athletics will hold back pitchers Sonny Gray and Scott Kazmir during the first week of spring games, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

Neither player is dealing with an injury, but the team has opted to bring them along slowly to kick things off. The move will also allow the Athletics to get a better look at the players competing for the fifth spot in the rotation. Those players will likely pick up innings in place of Kazmir and Gray. 

Gray, 25, is coming off the biggest workload of his major-league career. He posted a 3.08 ERA over 219 innings.

The 31-year-old Kazmir made 30 starts last year. It was the first time since 2007 Kazmir reached that milestone. He put up a 3.55 ERA over 190 1/3 innings.

When the Mets traded Ike Davis to the Pirates last April, it put an end to a disappointing tenure in New York. Davis struggled to meet the expectations of being a former first-round pick, which is something he could live with.

Apparently, however, Davis couldn't live with a 2012 report citing the Mets were concerned about his nightlife habits. Davis had to encounter the topic when he met with Pirates manager Clint Hurdle after he was traded last year.

“Clint asked me about it when I first got over there,” Davis said, per the New York Daily News. “I was like, ‘I don’t know what to tell you, but a guy made up an article.’

“He was like, ‘I heard you’ve had issues.” And I was like, ‘Issues with what? I’ve never gotten in trouble. I’ve never gotten in a fight. I’ve never done anything to anyone. Yeah, I’ve gone out and had beers and stuff, but who hasn’t done that?’ I don’t know why I got singled out.”

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told Davis at the end of last season he would squash any rumors regarding the issue, calling the report "ridiculous" after Davis proved to be a model teammate in 2014.

Even Athletics manager Bob Melviin said Davis’ reputation in the game is now sound and is glad to have him on the roster after Oakland picked him up in November.

Still, Davis remains bothered the accusations are connected to his tenure with the Mets.

“That’s really the only thing that I still have a dirty taste in my mouth about," he said. "Because everything else, you could see it in numbers. What, am I going to argue? I didn’t play well. But as far as calling me out for drinking problems, and being a bad influence -- that was a joke. It’s ridiculous. But you can use it as a learning experience: You can’t trust people.”

News
Athletics pitcher Kendall Graveman is already impressing his teammates during camp, according to the San Francisco Chronicle

The 24-year-old was acquired by the club during the offseason, and is expected to compete for a spot in the rotation this spring. In order to do so, he'll need to utilize his cut-fastball. Graveman accidentally discovered the pitch in the minors, and worked to repeat his motion in order to perfect the pitch. 

His new catcher, Stephen Vogt, came away impressed with the offering after a recent bullpen session. "It’s impressive stuff, a lot of movement late, good arm motion, the stuff is electric," Vogt said. "The cutter is good, it’s a little big but it will only get better and better, which is exciting."

Graveman pitched five games in relief with Toronto last year.
