Still no timetable for Hill's return to Athletics

The A's are still without a return date for left-hander Rich Hill, whose lingering blister could greatly impact the club's chances of dealing him ahead of the Aug. 1 Trade Deadline.

19 de julio de 2016 a las 9:36 ET

Triggs to DL; A's recall lefty Coulombe

The A's placed right-hander Andrew Triggs on the disabled list with a left shin contusion Tuesday, leading them to call on left-hander Daniel Coulombe from Triple-A Nashville to take over long-relief duties out of the bullpen.
