Piscotty (ankle) was able to shed his air cast Saturday and took batting practice before the game against the Rangers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Piscotty continues to trend upward in his recovery, with Saturday's development the latest example. The recovering outfielder has progressively ramped up his physical activity throughout this past week, and it increasingly appears as if he'll be physically ready for a return at some point before the end of the regular season. Whether the Athletics opt to activate him is another matter, as an official return by Piscotty would effectively cost the team one postseason roster spot if a playoff berth is clinched.

- Piscotty (ankle) has ramped up his physical activity in recent days and is increasingly hopeful of a return before the end of the regular season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "It's feeling good, I'm moving around, the swelling has gone down," he told The Chronicle on Friday. "The running has gone really well, I have one more session and we'll assess from there."
- Piscotty (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
- Piscotty (ankle) isn't expected to need a walking boot much longer, but the Athletics will need to figure out how to get him rehab at-bats with the minor-league season having ended, Janie McCauley of the Associated Press reports. All Stephen Piscotty (R) News
