A’s activate Kendall Graveman, option Daniel Gossett

The Oakland Athletics activated Kendall Graveman from the disabled list on Thursday and optioned Daniel Gossett to Triple-A Nashville.

Graveman, who has recovered from his shoulder injury, will be making his first start since May 19.

Gossett put up his best results of the 2017 season on Wednesday night at San Francisco, holding the Giants to one run on three hits over seven innings. He was likely informed of his impending demotion before the start.

With an off-day on Monday, the A’s won’t need a fifth starter until August 12 against the Baltimore Orioles. Gossett could return from Triple-A to make that start, as that would mark the end of the 10-day period before he could be recalled. He could also be recalled sooner if another player is placed on the disabled list.

Chris Smith, who was recently moved to the long reliever role, could return to the rotation as well. Other options include Jesse Hahn and Frankie Montas, both of whom are currently with Triple-A Nashville.Chris Smithdaniel gossettKendall GravemanMajor League BaseballMLBOakland Athletics
