Gentry (concussion) rod the exercise bike for the second straight day and reported feeling better, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Gentry is making progress toward returning from the concussion he suffered Tuesday, but will need to be cleared before being able to return to the lineup. Even when he returns, Gentry probably won't see everyday action in the outfield.

Gentry (concussion) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the White Sox, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Although Gentry reported feeling a little better Wednesday, a day after suffering a concussion in a collision with second baseman Carlos Sanchez, he'll need to be cleared through league protocol before returning to action.

Gentry (concussion) reported feeling a little better but is not available to play Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Gentry was diagnosed with a concussion after colliding with White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez on Tuesday. Manager Bob Melvin said Gentry is still dealing with aftereffects from the concussion, and he will need to be fully cleared through league protocol before returning to action.

Gentry has been diagnosed with a concussion, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports.

He left Tuesday's game after colliding with White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez, as his head made contact with Sanchez's shoulder. He walked off under his own power, but was visibly shaken up. There's a good chance we won't see Gentry for a week or more, depending on how quickly he moves through the league's concussion protocol. In most formats there will be better options over the final three weeks than Gentry, who was a part-time player to begin with.

Gentry left midway through Tuesday's game after colliding with White Sox second baseman Carlos Sanchez, possibly suffering a head injury, USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports.

He walked off under his own power but looked shaken up. It's possible he just got the wind knocked out of him, but his head may have collided with Sanchez's shoulder, so a concussion is also possible. Consider him day-to-day for now, and we'll update his status when the A's specify on Gentry's injury.

Gentry (hand) was activated from the 15-day DL on Friday and is expected to be in the A's lineup against the Angels.

He began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, and hit .267 in four games. The A's will find modest playing time for Gentry now that he's healthy, and he offers speed (18 steals in 218 plate appearances) with a .250-.280 batting average for those in deeper leagues.

Gentry (hand) is scheduled to start a rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

It's unclear exactly how much time Gentry will require at the affiliate in order to prove his health, but the outfielder has already spent more than three weeks on the disabled list recovering from a non-displaced fracture in his right hand.

Gentry (hand) has progressed to hitting off a tee, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

There was some hope Gentry would miss as little as two weeks after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his hand last month, but he has already missed more than two weeks and just received clearance to resume swinging. Gentry will have to gradually increase his activity from here, though it looks like he should still be able to get into rehab games before the minor league season ends.

Gentry (hand) hopes to hit off a tee Monday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

Gentry will use the tee session as a measuring stick on how his hand is doing. He fractured his hand while attempting to bunt on July 28, but will make his first steps toward rejoining the A's. After the tee session, Gentry will likely participate and a BP session and either a simulated game or go on a rehab assignment before becoming available.

Craig Gentry is dealing with a non-displaced fracture of his right hand and hopes to only miss a couple of weeks.

Gentry broke his hand on a bunt attempt Sunday, but it sounds like things could have been much worse under the circumstances. The A's have called up speedster Billy Burns for some outfield insurance with Coco Crisp (neck) also sidelined.
