Manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday that he is not optimistic that Sogard (knee) will play again this season, Carl Steward of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Sogard was able to resume on-field work last month, his progress has been slow and it sounds like the A's are resigned to the 30-year-old missing the remainder of the year. He's an obvious non-tender candidate this winter after batting .239/.295/.313 in parts of six seasons with Oakland.

Sogard (knee) has begun on-field defensive drills, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

The knee surgery Sogard underwent in April has proven more debilitating than expected. He is still a few weeks away from even being able to run, but he is hopeful he will be able to join the Athletics by September.

Sogard (knee) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The A's needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster Wednesday after selecting Zach Neal's contract from Triple-A Nashville, leading the club to transfer Sogard to the 60-day DL. Sogard underwent knee surgery in April to remove loose bodies from the affected area and was initially expected to miss just 4-to-6 weeks, but his placement on the 60-day DL guarantees a much later return date.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
