Tim Lincecum allowed three earned runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and only one walk in six innings of work in a no decision against the Brewers on Tuesday night.
Timmy remains winless over his last four starts (0-2) and now has an ERA of 9.62 (14 ER, 13.1 IP) over his past three suggesting he is more of a pitcher to stream against favorable matchups, which he has in his next start on Sunday in KC against the Eric Hosmer-less Royals who own the second lowest team OPS at home among AL teams this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.
Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.
One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley
