Before Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox, the Athletics beat writers reported on Twitter that Stephen Vogt will not join the team on their road trip to Seattle starting on Friday. Manager Bob Melvin hopes Vogt's ankle sprain will heal enough in time for the homestand beginning Monday against the Texas Rangers.

Sean Doolittle to be activated Friday (intercostal strain)

Sean Doolittle and Bob Melvin believe the left-handed closer will be activated for the start of Friday's series against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.

Craig Gentry still unavailable (concussion)

As noted by Susan Slusser above, Craig Gentry was unavailable for Thursday's game. In her Thursday pre-game Drumbeat blog, Slusser noted:

Melvin said that Craig Gentry (concussion) was "still a little foggy" yesterday, so he is unavailable today. You'd have to think it would be unlikely for him to play at least through the weekend, but that's my guess only. Melvin emphasized that the team will not push it with Gentry.
