Athletics' Luis Medina: Allows one run over six frames
Medina did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over six innings against the Twins. He struck out four.
Medina was efficient for most of the contest and didn't allow a run until the sixth inning, which would come across on a double-play ball after the right-hander gave up two hits to open the frame. It was the first time since July 7 that he went at least six innings, though he was still unable to secure his fourth win due to a lack of run support. On the downside, Medina issued at least three walks in four of his final five starts of the year. The 24-year-old figures be in the mix for a rotation spot in 2024 despite posting a 5.42 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 106:57 K:BB through 109.2 innings in his rookie season.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Luis Medina: Goes 4.2 innings in no-decision
Medina (finger) didn't factor into the decision in the Athletics' 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Blue Jays on Monday, allowing three runs on three hits and three walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out three.
Medina held Toronto off the board through his first four frames before he was tagged for three runs in the fifth, forcing him out of the game after throwing 70 pitches. The rookie right-hander was likely on a pitch count Monday, as he was making his first start since Aug. 18 in his return from the 15-day injured list. He's now failed to make it through five innings in each of his last four starts, allowing 10 earned runs in that span (15 innings). Overall, Medina sits on a 3-8 season record with a 5.46 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 87:46 K:BB across 14 starts (90.2 innings). He'll look to go deeper in his next outing, tentatively scheduled for this weekend in Texas.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Luis Medina: Full bullpen session on tap
Medina (finger) came away from Friday's touch-and-feel bullpen session without any setbacks and is therefore set for a full session early in the week, the Athletics' official site reports.

Reliever Spencer Patton was brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas to take Medina's place on the roster. Medina's placement on the IL is retroactive to Saturday, so he won't be eligible for activation until Sept. 3.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Luis Medina: Goes three innings Friday
Medina allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out one and walking none over three innings as a bulk reliever Friday versus the Orioles.
Medina's gone fewer than five innings in each of his last three outings, with the prior two appearances being traditional starts, and it appears the Athletics may be slowing him down as he approaches a career-high workload. He's already covered 99.1 innings between the majors and Triple-A this season, while his career high is 106.1 innings in 2021. Medina's also had a couple of rough performances lately, which has put him at a 5.44 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 84:43 K:BB over 18 appearances (13 starts). The right-hander tentatively lines him up for a home outing against the Royals next week.... See More ... See Less
