Craig Gentry OF OAK 2 Days

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.

Athletics placed OF Craig Gentry on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right hand.

Ouch. Gentry presumably broke his hand on a bunt attempt Sunday. The A's have called up prospect outfielder Billy Burns to take his place on the active roster, but they are going to have to hope that Coco Crisp's neck issue isn't serious. Gentry is obviously going to be sidelined for a while.

Craig Gentry went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Gentry had his second straight two-hit day, as he's raised his average from .273 to .286 over the past two games. Gentry isn't a run producer -- he has yet to hit a home run, and Sunday's RBI was just his sixth of the year -- but he's scored 30 runs in 66 games and has 15 steals in 15 chances. His speed still makes him a viable asset in AL-only leagues.

Craig Gentry stole two bases and scored a run in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Gentry didn't have a hit in three at-bats, but he made things happen with his legs. After getting hit by a pitch in the eighth inning, Gentry stole second base and then third off Red Sox catcher David Ross. He came in to score on a Yoenis Cespedes single. The outfielder is now a perfect 15-for-15 in stolen base attempts and is a nice player to own in AL-only leagues.

Craig Gentry went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in a win over the Nationals on Sunday.

Gentry began the year on the disabled list, but he's been a nice contributor for the A's since being activated on April 12. The outfielder is hitting .284/.360/.373 with six stolen bases and 14 runs scored in 26 games. When Coco Crisp has been out of the lineup Gentry has also batted atop the A's lineup, another plus for the 30-year-old.
