Worth noting

• Melvin reiterated Wednesday that "there's a chance" lefty Eric O'Flaherty could join the A's bullpen as soon as Thursday at home.

O'Flaherty (Tommy John surgery) made another rehab appearance with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday evening, allowing one hit and one walk with two strikeouts in a combined one inning of work. He recorded two outs in the fifth and one more in the sixth.
