A's place Inge on DL

A day after sending Brandon Inge back to the Bay Area from Chicago for an MRI on his shoulder, the team announced Tuesday the third baseman is headed to the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 12. Inge injured his shoulder diving for a ball in the A's win over the White Sox on Saturday. The team announced Josh Donaldson will replace him on the roster. After Inge went down, A's manager Bob Melvin on Sunday suggested time without Inge seemed possible."It may be a little bit longer than we first expected ... We're going to fly him home tomorrow, get him an MRI and have our doctors take a look at him." Inge was batting .216 with 12 home runs and 52 RBI in 82 games before the injury. Donaldson joins the As for the third time this year and is batting .153 with one home runs and seven RBI in 28 games. He was on the Opening Day roster and hit .094 with no RBI in nine games before he was optioned to Sacramento April 23.

A's make roster moves, DFA outfielder who played in 48 games in 2017

In order to get their 40-man roster set for the Rule 5 Draft, the A's did a little roster reshuffling on Monday.

Among the casualties from the roster crunch was outfielder Jaycob Brugman, who played in 48 games for the A's in 2017.

Brugman and left-handed pitcher Sam Moll were designated for assignment in order to clear spots for the A's to add right-handed pitchers Heath Fillmyer and Lou Trivino to the 40-man roster.

During his stint with the A's last season, Brugman hit .266/.346/.343 with two doubles, three home runs and 12 RBI. Brugman participated in the recently-concluded Arizona Fall League, but didn't put up great numbers. He his just 1.82 in nine games.

The 23-year-old Fillmyer started 29 games for Double-A Midland and posted a 3.49 ERA in 149.2 innings. He was a fifth-round by the A's in 2014.

Trivino spent time with Midland and Triple-A Nashville during the 2017 season. In 48 relief appearances between the two levels, he posted a 3.03 ERA and struck out 65 batters in 68.1 innings.

Earlier on Monday, the A's acquired outfielder Ramon Laureano from the Astros for right-handed pitcher Brandon Bailey. Laureano was added to the 40-man roster and right-handed pitcher Bobby Wahl was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville.

The Rule 5 Draft will be held on Thursday, Dec. 14 at the Winter Meetings in Orlando.
