Worth noting

• Righty reliever Evan Scribner was designated for assignment Friday, but he remains on the A's 40-man roster and will report to Triple-A Sacramento.

Because Scribner is more than three years removed from his first appearance on a Major League roster, optional waivers are required when optioning him, which allows the A's to send him to the Minors while keeping him on the 40-man.

Stephen Vogt will not play the outfield as he continues to deal with pain in his right foot. Melvin said orthotics have helped, but he prefers to keep Vogt at first base for now.

• Melvin said first baseman Kyle Blanks (left calf) had a minor setback in his recovery last week. He was slated to take batting practice Friday, but he will not begin a rehab stint until he's able to run the bases comfortably.

• The A's will host a two-hour baseball clinic, sponsored by Chevron, at 10 a.m. PT on Tuesday at Martin Luther King Park in Richmond, Calif. Fuld, third-base coach Mike Gallego, and former A's Vida Blue, Willie McGee and Shooty Babbitt will run the clinic for kids ages eight to 15.
