Greetings, AN, and welcome to the preseason. A’s #2 prospect A.J. Puk (2-0, 3.18 ERA, 11.1 IP in 2019 MLB play) has the nod to start against the Chicago Cubs and their righty Alec Mills (1-0, 2.75 ERA, 36 IP in 2019). I’m sure I’m not the only person who is delighted to be here today. Baseball is back! Let’s go, Oakland!
