The casualty is, of course, Derek Norris. The team announced he was placed on the 15-day DL retroactive to 8/21.
The pitchers seem excited on Twitter. Here are their reactions:

Not sure about the Papa Slob thing, but I'll assume it's a term of endearment.
How much would you pay for one year of Mike Trout?
Good thing there's no way the A's will face the Rays in the playoffs or anything. That could be bad.
