Dustin Garneau went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts on Tuesday against the Braves.
The 32-year-old has a career .633 OPS in the majors playing for a variety of teams. He is expected to serve as the backup to Martin Maldonado this season.
Dustin Garneau was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Friday.
Garneau was picked up by the Athletics in the beginning of August, and hit .294 with a home run and seven RBI over seven contests. Garneau will head to waivers after being released from the 40-man roster.
Dustin Garneau went 1-for-3 with a two-run double and a walk in Friday's 7-0 win over the White Sox.
Garneau has now racked up seven RBI over his first four games in Oakland, with Friday serving as his third multi-RBI effort during that stretch. He will continue to alternate at catcher with Chris Herrmann while Josh Phegley (thumb) remains sidelined. If Garneau continues to generate similar production at the plate over coming games, it will be interesting to see what the Athletics do once Phegley returns.
Dustin Garneau went 1-for-4 with a three run home run in Tuesday’s 11-4 win over the Cubs.
Garneau’s blast off Jon Lester in the second inning was his first homer as an Athletic in only his second game with the team. He has three home runs and 12 RBI in 30 games between the Athletics and Angels, but will likely lose his roster spot once Josh Phegley (thumb) returns.
Dustin Garneau went 2-for-3 with a two-run double, a walk, and a run scored in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Cardinals.
Garneau was claimed off waivers from the Angels on Saturday, and came through with the biggest hit of the game. He is slashing .250/.365/.389 with two home runs and nine RBI in 85 plate appearances this season. Garneau will serve as a backup to Josh Phegley and Chris Herrmann in Oakland, and is not worth owning in fantasy.
