Good morning, Athletics Nation! Live baseball is just around the corner, after an extra-long wait due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Oakland A's will open their 2020 season next week, on Friday, July 24, at home against the Angels to begin their 60-game schedule. But first, they've got a couple exhibition games with the Giants, on Monday and Tuesday — that's just four days away! As we eagerly anticipate our first A's games in nearly 10 months, Wednesday brought an update on the upcoming scrimmages. Sean Manaea will start the Monday game at the Coliseum, while Mike Fiers and Chris Bassitt will each pitch on Tuesday in San Francisco, reports insider Martin Gallegos and the other beat writers.
