  • Esteury Ruiz Battling For Outfield Spot With A's

    Oakland A's outfielderEsteury Ruizis in a battle for an outfield spot this spring as he looks to show off his elite speed with the big club in 2023. Ruiz is hitting a decent .241 with a solid .738 OPS alongside a homer, 10 RBI, and three stolen bases across 29 Cactus League at-bats to this point. WithRamon Laureanoset as the everyday right fielder in Oakland, Ruiz is aiming for reps in both left and center field, with the former looking like his best option, withJJ Bledaybeing optioned to Triple-A. Ruiz made his MLB debut in 2022, hitting just .171 with one SB across a small 36 plate-appearance sample between the Padres and Brewers before being acquired by the A's in December. The speedster swiped a whopping 85 bases in the minors between Double-A and Triple-A a season ago, and his speed will certainly earn him a solid look in the rebuilding A's outfield in 2023.

  • A's Option JJ Bleday To Triple-A

    The Oakland Athletics optioned outfielder JJ Bleday to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday. Bleday is headed for some more minor-league seasoning to begin the 2023 season, but he'll surely be up with the A's at some point this year. He was acquired from the Miami Marlins in the offseason in the deal that sent left-hander A.J. Puk to the Marlins. In 11 Cactus League games with Oakland, Bleday hit .286 with a home run and a stolen base. The 25-year-old former fourth overall pick in 2019 hit a disappointing .167/.277/.309 with a .586 OPS, five home runs, 16 RBI, 21 runs scored and four stolen bases in his first 65 major-league games in 2022 with the Fish. Bleday's prospect status has surely taken a hit, but he'll eventually get another chance in Oakland.

  • AL West Notes: Maldonado, deGrom, Bleday

    Martin Maldonado played through a sports hernia and a broken hand for the latter part of the 2022 season, toughing it out to remain on the field and help the Astros win a championship.  As a result, Maldonado admitted that he “felt a little sad” that the Astros looked at Willson Contreras and other available…

  • JJ Bleday Traded To Athletics

    Miami Marlins outfielder JJ Bleday has been traded to the Oakland Athletics on Saturday. In exchange, the Marlins will receive left-hander A.J. Puk from Oakland. Bleday was unlikely to have a significant role in Miami. He hit .167/.277/.309 with five homers and four steals with the Marlins last season. The 25-year-old should get more of a chance to make an impact with the rebuilding Athletics. As for the Marlins, Puk put together a fairly strong season in 2022. He finished with a 3.12 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 76 strikeouts in 62 appearances with Oakland. The 27-year-old could end up as a high leverage bullpen option for the Marlins.
