Worth noting

• A's lefty Jordan Norberto, stationed on the disabled list since Aug. 21 with shoulder tendinitis, is playing catch on a regular basis but has still yet to throw off the mound.

"Once he does that and goes after it a bit harder, we'll probably have a better idea," Melvin said.

At this point, Norberto is unlikely to be available for the early rounds of the playoffs, should the A's participate.

• A's lefty Brett Anderson (right oblique) is on track to throw a bullpen session on Monday. If all goes well during that session, Anderson could possibly be considered to start a potential one-game Wild Card playoff on Friday.
