Happy Tuesday, Athletics Nation!
While the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators get only have nine games left in their season, they’re still getting some reinforcements for the end of the year. The Athletics’ #2 prospect Tyler Soderstrom has been shuttled up to AAA.

This leaves Soderstrom a step away from the bigs, and were he to return to the Aviators at the start of next season, there’s a good chance Soderstrom would debut at some point in 2023. Tyler has spent most of his season in High-A Lansing, moving up to Double-A Midland at the start of August. Over the season Soderstrom has hit .265/.324/.509.
Joining Soderstrom in Las Vegas is Kyle McCann, another Catcher who has been playing in Midland since 2021 and Zack Gelof, the A’s second round pick in 2021.

Speculation that A’s assistant GM Billy Owens could fill the hole the Giants just created
No question. And he and Farhan already have years of experience working together, which one would think would make the transition process a lot smoother. https://t.co/3o8JAZZZFP— Melissa Lockard (@melissalockard) September 19, 2022
