The Oakland A’s have reinstated Stephen Piscotty and Kirby Snead from the COVID injured list, per the team. In corresponding moves, Drew Jackson was placed on the COVID injured list and Sam Selman was sent to Triple-A.
Selman, 31, made just one appearance this season, tossing 2 2/3 innings without surrendering a run. He did give up one hit and one walk while striking out five. Jackson, meanwhile, was 0-3 in his three plate appearances, striking out once. He may receive more opportunities when he’s off the injured list, but with Piscotty back off the injured list himself, there may not be room for Jackson on the active roster.
As for Piscotty, the 31-year-old can return to the lineup, where he has a .286/.412/.286 line through 17 plate appearances. He’s back in right field and batting fifth today.
Snead, 27, came to Oakland as part of the return for Matt Chapman. In four games, he’s logged 3 1/3 innings with two earned runs, four hits, two walks, and two strikeouts.
Hi I will have one venti Fulchino. Oh and a Piscotty.
MLB needs to drop the Covid idiocy. Anyone still obsessed with that nonsense needs therapy.
I don’t see why it’s a big deal to not try spreading covid, flu, whatever. Are you one of those people who goes out in public when you are sick?
well, the issue is it’s worse than the flu. no one takes these measures with the flu. cant be putting those two in the same group.
This might be it for Piscotty. He is owned like 8mill for the season but Laureano is coming fitting in right just fine and he also has a cannon for arm. We already have a young promising center in Pache…
I expect Piscotty to remain the rest of the season. The A’s need warm bodies.
Hasn’t been good since 2018. A lifetime ago in sports.
