• Catcher John Jaso (concussion) is continually progressing, A's manager Bob Melvin said, but has yet to resume baseball activities. He was placed on the disabled list on July 25.
• A previously struggling A's lineup entered Monday having recorded 10 or more hits in each of its past four games, batting .320 with 29 runs scored over that span. However, the team's average over the last 25 games remained low at .234, despite the recent outburst.
• Eric Sogard had his career-high 14-game hitting streak snapped on Sunday. It was the longest streak by an A's player this year.
Sogard was 20-for-51 (.392) with five doubles and 10 RBIs during the streak.
