Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) was available to pinch-hit Thursday.

Advice: Cespedes didn't start the game after spraining his right thumb on an awkward swing Wednesday. It's a bit of a concern because he's had hand issues in the past, but this one does seem like a minor ailment. Cespedes is listed as day-to-day.

Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is not in the A's starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Astros.

Advice: Cespedes sprained his right thumb on a hard swing late Wednesday night -- after clubbing two home runs earlier in the game. X-rays ruled out a fracture, but the Cuban slugger could need multiple days of rest.

Yoenis Cespedes has been diagnosed with a right thumb sprain.

Advice: Cespedes suffered the injury on a violent swing Wednesday night. He had homered twice in the game before exiting. X-rays were negative, but the slugger is likely to sit out of Thursday afternoon's series finale with the Astros. The A's are calling him day-to-day.

Yoenis Cespedes homered twice and drove in five runs before leaving Wednesday's game against the Astros with an apparent left thumb injury.

Advice: Cespedes went 2-for-4 before exiting in the seventh inning after jamming his hand while spinning to the ground on a violent swing. He's now riding a five-game hitting streak, and a three-game extra base hit streak. It's nice to see him break out of a funk, as he looked lost at the plate earlier this month. Cespedes came into this game batting .145 in July. Hopefully his hand bones are all intact after his nasty spill.
