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.
