Links before a getaway-day matinee.

Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma appears to be closing on a return to the bigs.

San Diego is looking for trade partners for Nick Hundley. Hundley is a solid catcher, but receives very little playing time due to the presence of Yasmani Grandal. Perhaps Texas could be in on the bidding for Hundley?

Matt Kawahara of the Sacramento Bee presents an article on the A's facial hair.

The A's released a brief statement regarding their response to the Coliseum lease proposal.

Today's minor league action includes Josh Bowman on the mound for Stockton and Chris Jensen pitching for Midland.

On this day a year ago, Bartolo Colon led the A's to a rain-shortened 13-0 win over the Red Sox. He fielded a comebacker at some point during the game, giving us this gem.

Today's starting lineup includes Craig Gentry in the leadoff spot and Derek Norris behind the plate as the A's take on lefty Martin Perez.
