Worth noting

• To make room on the 25-man roster for Friday starter Brad Mills, the A's optioned reliever Evan Scribner to Triple-A.

• The A's lost left-handed pitcher Justin Marks on a waiver claim by the Rangers on Friday.

Marks was acquired from the Royals on June 6 in exchange for cash and immediately optioned to Triple-A Sacramento, where he did not allow a run in four relief appearances spanning 3 2/3 innings with the River Cats.

• First-round Draft pick Matt Chapman made his professional debut Friday night, playing third base and going 2-for-5 for the Arizona League A's.
