Worth noting

• A's outfielder Chris Young, held out of game action since Sunday because of a quad cramp, was back in the lineup Sunday and collected two hits. He also made a nice catch in center field.

"Yeah, he ran just fine," Melvin said, smiling.

• Outfield prospect Michael Choice continues to impress this spring. The A's 2010 first-round Draft pick went 2-for-2 on Friday and is now 8-for-16 (.500) in six games.
