Chris Bassitt will take the ball tonight as Oakland faces Milwaukee for the first time in over three years

After splitting a four-game series with the Texas Rangers and enjoying an off-day on Monday, the Oakland Athletics are back in action tonight.

Reigning National League MVP Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers are in Oakland for the first time since June of 2016. Last time these teams met, the Brewers took three out of four games to secure the season-series win.

Centerfielder Ramon Laureano has enjoyed an incredible month of July, hitting .392 with eight home runs and 18 RBI over 22 games.

Trade Deadline

The 2019 Trade Deadline is quickly approaching.

At 1:00pm PST on July 31 the trade deadline will pass, meaning teams may no longer trade players after the clock strikes one o’clock on Wednesday afternoon. Oakland didn’t wait around to start making moves, acquiring left-handed reliever Jake Diekman from the Kansas City Royals over the weekend.

Diekman is 14-21 with a 3.87 ERA over eight seasons in the big leagues.

Date Starting Pitcher
Saturday, July 2 @ 1:10 pm A's Paul Blackburn vs. Mariners George Kirby
