While there has been no developments on that front,’s Martin Gallegos spoke with manager Mark Kotsay and general manager David Forst about the situation Saturday.

Kotsay said that the team continues to pursue a “parallel path” when it comes to stadium negotiations between Oakland and Las Vegas.

“It’s been talked about for a long time,” A’s manager Mark Kotsay said. “We continue to pursue both in Oakland and in Vegas. We call that the ‘parallel path.’ We’re always looking for the opportunity in front of us. We’ve had that in Oakland. I know John has done everything he can to get a deal done and continues to do that, and I think he’s doing that in both places.”
