Worth noting

• Outfielder Adam Eaton (right hamstring strain) joined the team in Oakland to work out before heading out on a scheduled Minor League rehab assignment, as he is hoping to be return from the DL when eligible Sunday.

"He's getting closer and closer to 100 [percent] every day apparently," Ventura said. "He's doing better and I think that's part of it so we can have him out here and see him."
