Worth noting

• Melvin said he spoke with crew chief Bill Miller Friday morning about the bizarre replay situation on Thursday that led the A's to play the game under protest.

"He explained to me what the thought process was. I appreciate that," Melvin said. "I think it was probably a no-win for anybody at the time."

• Reddick has started doing cardio work in the weight room as he begins another rehab on his right knee, but he has not yet begun baseball activities.

• Catcher Derek Norris has slightly adjusted his positioning behind home plate, Melvin said, moving back a bit in hopes of avoiding hitters' backswings.
