Player Notes
Red Sox acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes from the Athletics for LHP Jon Lester and OF Jonny Gomes.

Advice: Cespedes can elect to become a free agent after the 2015 season and the A's stood little chance of locking him up long-term, so they shipped him off to Boston for a three-month ace rental. The 28-year-old Cuban outfielder has massive power -- which should show better at Fenway Park -- and will be an upgrade to Boston's outfield defense both this season and next season. He was hitting .256/.303/.464 with 17 home runs and 67 RBI in 101 games this year for Oakland. The Red Sox also got the A's Round B competitive-balance pick in the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft.

Yoenis Cespedes finished 3-for-5 with two doubles, two RBI -- including the game-tying RBI single in the ninth inning -- and a run scored in the Athletics' 7-4 comeback win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Advice: Cespedes filled up the stat sheet, as he also stole his third base of the season in the win. The three-hit game was his first since June 11, but Cespedes has hits in nine of his last 10 games to pull his slash line up to .258/.306/.468. A notoriously streaky hitter, the 28-year-old is swinging a hot bat right now.

Yoenis Cespedes had a nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Rangers, going 2-for-5 with a double and a pair of RBI.

Advice: He also came around to score a run in the ballgame. His two-run double off Mike Mikolas capped a five-run second inning. The Home Run Derby champion is now hitting .256/.305/.465 with 17 long balls and 65 RBI on the year.

Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) had an RBI single and a stolen base in his return to action Friday against the Rangers.

Advice: It was the only offense of the night for the A's. Cespedes sat out Thursday's game after he sprained his right thumb on an awkward swing on Wednesday, but it shouldn't be a lingering issue.

Sun, Jul 27 Rotoworld
Yoenis Cespedes is back in the Athletics' lineup Friday.

Advice: Cespedes sat out Thursday after spraining his right thumb on an awkward swing Wednesday. Not only is he back in the lineup Friday, he's making just his second start this season in center field.

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.
