UPDATES & NEWS
Josh Hamilton (thumb) still hasn't touched a bat and is still 3-4 weeks away from playing in a game.
Hamilton was off to a hot start to his 2014 season hitting .444 with 2 home runs and 6 RBI before a head first slide into 1st base resulted in his thumb injury. His projected recovery time line has him coming off the DL sometime towards late May but Hamilton owners will want to continue to monitor his recovery should that time line move up or down.ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Chad Smith has arrived in camp on Saturday.
Smith was just claimed off waivers from the Tigers on Thursday so he had a couple of days to get his things and head to the A's spring training facility. He's a long shot to make the 25-man roster, but if he can continue to post similar strikeout and walk rates that he did in Double and Triple-A last year, he could get a call-up at some point.
