After committing six prospects in four days of camp last week, you might figure that prolific camp…
Cunningham Gets Call; Casilla Back
Cunningham only recently returned from the DL himself. He was injured on April 11th with Sacramento when he crashed shoulder-first into a catcher on a play at the plate. He missed exactly a month with a separated shoulder. Since returning from the DL, Cunningham is five-for-12 with two homeruns and two doubles in three games. He hit .329 with 17 homeruns in 107 games between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Sacramento last season. He spent the final five weeks of the regular season with the A's and batted .250 with a homer and a 710 OPS.
Casilla returns from the DL after tossing two scoreless innings in a rehab assignment. He had been battling a sore knee. In 11.1 innings for the A's this season, Casilla has a 1.59 ERA, but he has six walks and only seven strike-outs.
Gray was actually sent out to Sacramento on Thursday morning and he pitched in the River Cats' loss to Albuquerque on Thursday. He tossed a scoreless inning. Gray made one appearance with the A's in his latest stint with the team, retiring the only batter he faced (Vernon Wells). He has a 3.09 ERA and two saves over 11.2 innings for the River Cats this season.
Blevins was sent out to Sacramento for the second time this season. He was sent to Sacramento on April 18th and spent a little more than two weeks with the River Cats before getting the call to Oakland on May 4. Blevins was one of the A's best relievers last season, but he has appeared to lose the confidence of A's manager Bob Geren. He has made only five appearances with the A's this season, despite being on the roster for nearly a month. His ERA is inflated (12.46) but he has allowed runs in only two of the five appearances (he allowed four runs in .2 innings on April 15th and two runs in two innings on May 9th). Blevins has a 3.72 ERA in 9.2 innings for the River Cats this season.
