3/11/2014 | Bright lights upon him, Gray still finding his way
This was Sonny Gray's third start in his first spring as a so-called established Major Leaguer, and he's still feeling his way through it.

3/11/2014 | Nakajima preparing to fill in for injured Russell

3/11/2014 | Otero becoming valuable piece of bullpen puzzle
Not all Athletics are made the same, and that's where right-handed reliever Dan Otero fits into the unique Oakland mold. He doesn't play video games. He doesn't drink coffee. He doesn't even listen to music. No, instead he does crossword puzzles. And lots of them.
3/11/2014 | Russell out at least one week with hamstring strain
After sustaining a right hamstring strain on Monday afternoon, A's shortstop Addison Russell will be sidelined for at least a week. Hamstring injuries are notoriously tricky and often linger for a while, so the A's want to play it safe with their prized prospect.

3/10/2014 | With a home behind the plate, Vogt begins to thrive

As if the spotlight couldn't already love Addison Russell even more, the A's top prospect delivered what pitcher Dan Straily called an "unexpected and phenomenal" performance during the club's talent show Sunday morning.

3/8/2014 | Anderson enjoys moment, outing against former team
