Sogard (left knee) will likely miss four-to-six weeks after undergoing surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard did not have any damage to his ligament but required the procedure in order to remove loose bodies from his left knee Wednesday afternoon. He had first started to feel discomfort in the knee during spring training this year. The A's have not yet released information on the specifics of the surgery, but Sogard will most likely return near the end of May.

Sogard (knee) had surgery Wednesday, performed by Dr. James Andrews, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard's procedure required the removal of loose bodies from his knee after Dr. Andrews confirmed that he needed surgery Wednesday. The A's will release information on the timetable for Sogard as soon as possible, but it is expected that he will be sidelined through the All-Star break. The utility infielder has yet to play a game in the 2016 regular season.

Sogard (knee) will meet with Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for a second opinion on whether or not he'll need surgery, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was reported earlier Tuesday that Sogard would in fact need surgery to remove loose bodies from his knee, but he will wait to make a final decision until he can meet with Dr. Andrews. If surgery is ultimately the direction Sogard and the team decide to go in, the timeline would have the utility infielder out through the All-Star break. More information on Sogard's status moving forward figures to be made available following his meeting with Andrews on Wednesday.

Sogard (knee) is set to have surgery to remove loose bodies from his knee next week, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard was initially placed on the disabled list due to issues with his neck and shoulder, but a recent knee injury will extend his stay on the DL. Hickey is reporting that Sogard's procedure has to do with loose bodies near his patella tendon and noted that Sogard "hopes to be back for the second half of the season." Although Sogard's neck and shoulder issues are no longer a problem, his knee injury is set to sideline him until the summer.

Sogard (neck) joined the A's Tuesday but will head back to High-A Stockton to play shortstop Wednesday before continuing his rehab assignment at another minor league level, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It is expected that Sogard will head to Triple-A Nashville after his second start with Stockton, but that has not been confirmed. Either way, Sogard should be able to rejoin the A's later this month, likely occupying a bench role.

Sogard (neck) will begin a rehab assignment Monday at High-A Stockton, Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard is only expected to stay with Stockton for one game before advancing his rehab to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday. If all goes well in both stops, there's a good chance Sogard will be activate from the DL before the next weekend is out.

Sogard (neck) may start swinging by the end of the week, after which a rehab assignment could ensue, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard was abruptly placed on the disabled list Saturday due to a neck injury, pushing back his season debut to mid-April. However, if all goes as planned, the utility infielder may be working his way back to the majors in the very near future.

Sogard (neck) will begin the season on the disabled list, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was reported earlier Saturday that Sogard could be at risk of starting the season on the disabled list, and that has since been confirmed. Sogard is dealing with a neck strain and there is no word of his placement on the DL being backdated, so the earliest he'll be able to return will be April 17. Chris Coghlan figures to serve as the A's backup second baseman in Sogard's absence while Jed Lowrie will likely be the backup shortstop.

Sogard (neck) may begin the season on the disabled list, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The A's could be starting the year without their best utility middle infielder as Sogard is dealing with a neck injury. Further confirmation on his status will be made available when the A's lock in their Opening Day roster in the near future, but if he does require a DL stint, look for Chris Coghlan to back up at second base while Jed Lowrie could be the backup shortstop.

Sogard could be at risk of not making the A's 25-man roster to start the season with the current roster crunch the team is facing.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Sogard has been a mainstay as a utility infielder with the A's over the last three seasons, but with the acquisitions of Chris Coghlan and Jed Lowrie, he could be on the outside looking in when the final cuts come down. Sogard does have minor league options available so the team could send him to Triple-A Nashville without placing him on waivers. Sogard provides very little fantasy value with the bat, but his excellent glove at multiple infield spots has been a real world value to the A's.
