Kyle Blanks 1B/LF.. OAK 26 Days

Blanks (Achilles) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Blanks has already missed more than 60 days with the Achilles tendinitis, so the transaction won't do much to change his predicament. He remains confined to walking boot for at least the next week or two, after which he'll be able to begin taking part in more baseball-related activities.

Blanks has been diagnosed with left Achilles tendinitis and there is no timetable for a return, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

At this point it's safe to part ways with Blanks in most formats, as there's little over a month left, and he won't be playing everyday even if he is able to return this season.

Blanks is experiencing a setback in his rehab, and is now having problems with both feet, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

Originally it was his calf that forced him to the 15-day DL, but the A's are now giving him an MRI on his feet to see what the new situation is. It's now looking like the soonest he could return to the A's would be sometime in September.

Blanks (calf) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Sunday,'s Jane Lee reports.

Blanks ran the bases several times this week, and it appears the results were favorable enough to clear him to participate in rehab games. First base has been a bit of a revolving door for the Athletics this season, so Blanks has a slight chance to see some playing time after going 17-for-55 at the dish during his prior time with the team.
