  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Scoreless rehab frame Tuesday

    Alexander (ribs) fired a scoreless seventh inning in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over El Paso on Tuesday, recording a strikeout.

    The left-hander had failed to record an out while giving up five total runs in his most recent rehab outing Friday, so the scoreless frame Tuesday was a particularly welcome sight. Alexander might be ready to return from his long IL stint at any moment, and perhaps Tuesday's clean outing will qualify as the final box that needed checking before the Athletics deem him ready for activation.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Hit hard in latest rehab appearance

    Alexander (ribs) allowed five runs (four earned) on three hits, a walk and a hit batsman without recording an out during a rehab appearance Friday for Triple-A Las Vegas.

    The veteran southpaw had fired a scoreless frame with two strikeouts against San Jose in his second rehab outing Tuesday, but Friday's appearance saw Alexander fall apart in alarming fashion. Given the results, Alexander, who threw 22 pitches Friday, may be in line for at least one more rehab appearance in order to build some momentum before being activated.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Makes first rehab start

    Alexander (ribs) started Single-A Stockton's loss to Visalia on Friday, allowing an earned run on two hits over one inning. He struck out one.

    Alexander located 12 of his 16 pitches for strikes and came away from his first game action in nearly two months feeling good, per MLB.com. The veteran left-hander is due for another rehab appearance with the Ports on Tuesday against San Jose, and if he remains free of setbacks, his rehab assignment will move to Triple-A Las Vegas.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Heading out on rehab assignment

    Alexander (ribs) threw live batting practice to Miguel Andujar (knee) on Tuesday and is now set to join Single-A Stockton to begin a rehab assignment Friday, MLB.com reports.

    Alexander cleared his final hurdle to a return to the mound with Tuesday's activity, and when he does debut for the Ports, it will be his first game action since a March 6 Cactus League appearance against the Angels. Given the amount of time he's been sidelined, Alexander figures to need a fairly lengthy rehab assignment, even though he'll likely be utilized for no more than two innings per appearance once he's with the big-league club.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Set for live BP

    Alexander (ribs) is expected to throw live batting practice Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander continues to progress in his recovery from a left rib contusion and he'll take the next step in his rehab process Tuesday. The 34-year-old has missed the entirety of the 2024 season to this point and he'll still likely have a multi-outing rehab assignment before he'll be able to return to the major-league bullpen down the road.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Takes positive step Tuesday

    Alexander (ribs) threw a successful 20-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, the Associated Press reports.

    The veteran right-hander appears to be one step closer to beginning a rehab assignment following Tuesday's developments. Alexander spent over a month without throwing off a mound before starting a throwing program, so he should be in for multiple minor-league appearances whenever he is cleared for game action.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Rehab assignment close

    Alexanders (ribs) is tracking toward starting a minor-league rehab assignment sometime next week, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander has been on the shelf since mid-March after being diagnosed with a left rib stress reaction. The veteran southpaw will probably make a handful of rehab appearances before being activated, but since he's a one-inning reliever, he won't require an extended ramp-up period.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Bullpen session on tap

    Alexander (ribs) is projected to throw a bullpen session in coming days, MLB.com reports.

    The veteran remains without a timeline for return, but the bullpen session would mark his first time throwing off a mound since spring training. Alexander was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his left side in mid-March after three ragged Cactus League outings, and he'll almost certainly need an extensive rehab assignment whenever he's deemed ready to return to game action.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Heads to IL

    The Athletics placed Alexander on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a left rib contusion.

    According to MLB.com, Alexander has been taking part in plyometric work since suffering the injury earlier this month, but he has yet to resume playing catch. Alexander won't require much buildup time as a matchup lefty who typically doesn't work more than an inning in his appearances, but he's still expected to be sidelined beyond the minimum 15 days.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Next steps identified

    Alexander, who's been sidelined with a left rib stress reaction, will progress to playing catch as his next step when he's ready, Jason Burke of SI.com reports.

    The southpaw was diagnosed in mid-March and didn't receive an initial recovery timetable, so Monday's report provides only marginally more information. Alexander is eventually expected to serve as a veteran left-handed presence in the sixth and seventh innings for the Athletics, acting as a bridge to the likes of Zach Jackson, Dany Jimenez and Mason Miller in the eighth and ninth frames.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Injured list likely

    A's manager Mark Kotsay said Friday that Alexander (ribs) isn't expected to resume mound work before the end of camp, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The veteran left-hander was diagnosed with a left rib stress reaction after he struggled in three spring appearances, allowing eight earned runs over 2.1 innings. Alexander is now poised to begin the campaign on the injured list, and it's unclear how long he'll be unavailable.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Dealing with stress reaction

    Alexander is dealing with a stress reaction in his left rib and will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time, MLB.com reports.

    The veteran southpaw struggled across three Cactus League appearances, allowing eight earned runs on nine hits and a walk over 2.1 innings. Alexander's injury could sideline him into the early portion of the season, although more clarity on his potential return timetable could be gleaned in coming days.

  • Athletics' Scott Alexander: Receives contract from Oakland

    Alexander signed a one-year contract with the Athletics on Wednesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Alexander is coming off a down 2023 campaign, having posted a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB in 48.1 innings for the Giants. He entered last year with a career 3.00 ERA over parts of eight major-league seasons, however, so the A's will be hoping for something closer to that version. The sinkerballer will provide Oakland with a lefty relief option.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Shut down with hamstring strain

    The Giants placed Alexander on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a left hamstring strain.

    It's an early shutdown for Alexander, who finishes with a 4.66 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB in 48.1 innings of work for San Francisco. The 34-year-old lefty reliever is scheduled to become a free agent this winter.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Handed loss as opener

    Alexander (7-3) allowed two unearned runs on one hit in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Rockies.

    It wasn't a great first inning for the Giants overall, and their offense never caught up, leaving Alexander to take his first loss since Aug. 8. The southpaw hasn't strung together more than two scoreless appearances in a row since July, pitching to a rough 7.36 ERA and 2.05 WHIP over his last 14.2 innings. He's at a 4.47 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 29:11 K:BB through 46.1 innings overall, and he's added a save, eight holds and two blown saves this season.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening nightcap

    Alexander will be the opener for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Alexander has been the first pitcher on the mound on seven previous occasions this season. Only once did he throw more than one inning in that role, and he never threw more than 1.2 frames. Expect a similarly brief outing Saturday before he turns the ball over to a bulk reliever, with Jakob Junis the most likely candidate.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Scoops up win Sunday

    Alexander (7-2) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over 1.1 innings, earning the win Sunday over Atlanta.

    The left-hander entered after Tristan Beck was pulled in the fifth inning. Alexander allowed an inherited runner to score in that frame and gave up a two-run home run to Marcell Ozuna in the sixth, but the Giants were able to hold the lead the rest of the way. Through 47 appearances, including seven as an opener, Alexander has a 4.46 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB over 40.1 innings. He's been particularly shaky in August with a 9.35 ERA and 2.65 WHIP over 8.2 innings this month, so it's unlikely he sees much late-inning work over the final month-plus of the campaign.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening Monday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher for Sunday's game against the Phillies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Alexander has opened six times for the Giants this season and hasn't covered more than 1.2 frames in any of those outings. The left-hander has a 4.06 ERA through 44 appearances on the campaign and is likely good for a handful of outs Monday before giving way to bulk option Sean Manaea.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Opening again Friday

    Alexander will serve as the Giants' opening pitcher Friday versus the Rangers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Ross Stripling had been projected to start, but he'll instead likely operate in bulk relief. This is the sixth opener assignment of the year for Alexander, who has posted an overall 4.01 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB across 33.2 innings (40 appearances) this season with San Francisco.

  • Giants' Scott Alexander: Chased without logging an out

    Alexander (6-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits while failing to record an out in a 7-5 loss to the Angels.

    Alexander was thoroughly ineffective while serving as the Giants' opener Tuesday, surrendering a double and a pair of singles to his first three batters before quickly being replaced by Jakob Junis. Alexander has failed to complete a full inning in three straight appearances, a stretch in which he's allowed four runs on six hits without logging a single strikeout.
