• Cliff Pennington started swinging on Friday, a first since going on the disabled list with left elbow tendinitis on July 20. Trainer Nick Paparesta said Pennington will take Sunday off and then resume on Monday, "hopefully" participating in batting practice at some point during the A's 10-game homestead.

• Brett Anderson, recovering from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last July, is scheduled to make his second rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Paparesta said. He will be limited to five innings or 75 pitches, whichever comes first.
