NEW YORK (AP) — Edwin Jackson is the only starting pitcher included on the Oakland Athletics' roster for their AL wild-card game against the New York Yankees.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Mark Canha homered and Matt Chapman hit an RBI double to back Trevor Cahill, leading the Oakland Athletics past the New York Yankees 6-3 on Monday in a matchup between two teams in the AL wild-card race.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota's Target Field was the perfect place for Fernando Rodney to perform his patented post-save celebrations , when the 41-year-old right-hander leans back to pretend he's pulling a bow and shoots an imaginary arrow high into the sky.

The A's sent minor league right-hander Dakota Chalmers to Minnesota on Thursday to complete the deal that adds more depth to Oakland's stellar bullpen.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — After three years of missing the playoffs and dealing away fan favorites like Yoenis Cespedes, Josh Donaldson and Sonny Gray, the Oakland Athletics are trying to steer themselves in the opposite direction.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have released veteran reliever Santiago Casilla, five days after he was designated for assignment.
The A's made the move Thursday.
Casilla is 42-31 with 144 career saves in 15 seasons, but has been up and down with the A's this year while having control issues. Used primarily in middle relief, the right-hander has a 3.16 ERA despite 20 walks and four hit batters in 31 1/3 innings. He turns 38 next week,
The Oakland Athletics have played their way into contention by beating up on teams that are far from it.
Oakland enters the All-Star break having won 21 of its last 27, and the A's are only three games behind the second wild card. At 55-42, manager Bob Melvin's Athletics would have the second-best record in the National League if they were in it. Instead, they play in the AL West, where their impressive mark still leaves them eight games behind division-leading Houston.
