Saturday's longest home runs

Aaron Judge's league-leading 26th blast was matched by the first of Michael Taylor's two home runs against the Reds. Matt Olson went deep twice for his first two career homers, while Troy Tulowitzki's 422-footer was his first since May 29.

Franklin Barreto homered in his debut, and Jaycob Brugman and Matt Olson added their first career homers as well to become the first trio in MLB history to hit their first HRs in the same game. Will that add up to enough runs to get fellow rookie Daniel Gossett his first career win?

Ranking MLB defenses: Athletics

Oakland was the worst defensive team last season and is the worst this season. Something as small as changing the style of infield shift they tend to use could do wonders for the A's.

Stats & Info

Friday's longest home runs

Giancarlo Stanton's 458-footer was a missile off the bat, exiting at 112.4 mph on its way to clearing the statue at Marlins Park. Anthony Rendon's 454-foot blast was his longest since 2015. Matt Joyce and Khris Davis provided the A's all the offense they needed with their homers.

Barreto among A's young trio to get debut HRs

Athletics top prospect Franklin Barreto homered in his major league debut, blasting a two-run shot in Saturday's win over the White Sox. Oakland rookies Matt Olson and Jaycob Brugman also hit their first career homers.

Christina Kahrl MLB Staff Writer 

Calling up Franklin Barreto is interesting for its timing. The A's No. 1 prospect in Keith Law's pre-season ranking (No. 56 on the top 100) put up a decent, not amazing .754 OPS in Triple-A. Top prospects usually don't shuttle up and down, but it might look like the window at shortstop is open between Chad Pinder's strained hamstring and Marcus Semien's rehab -- unless the A's want to shake up baseball's worst defense by making some position switches, or act on those Jed Lowrie trade rumors.

A's Cotton, Pinder exit game with injuries

Oakland Athletics pitcher Jharel Cotton and shortstop Chad Pinder have left Friday night's game against the Chicago White Sox because of injuries.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Interesting decision by the A's to designate Stephen Vogt for assignment. He wasn't having a good season, hitting .217/.287/.357, but was an All-Star the past two seasons. They now have 10 days to trade him and given his minimal salary ($2.9 million), I could see some trading for him as a backup catcher.
