Stephen Piscotty (intercostal) is considered fully healthy with no limitations.
Piscotty suffered an intercostal strain back in February and likely would've began the season on the injured list had things started on time. However, he is now completely healed entering MLB's 60-game season.
Stephen Piscotty (intercostal) remains out of action this spring. There has not been an update yet this week but he might need an IL stint to start the season.
Piscotty struggled with injuries last year batting .249 with 13 home runs over 393 plate appearances. He showed some regression against right handed pitching, and is now an injury risk. Expect Chad Pinder and Robbie Grossman to get the majority of left field time should Piscotty miss extended time.
Stephen Piscotty (ankle) took batting practice Wednesday and is improving, but manager Bob Melvin isn't sure he'll return this season.
Piscotty's return from a right ankle sprain has been an up-and-down affair since landing on the injured list August 25th. His status to return in the regular season remains up in the air. Piscotty did some running Wednesday, which is a step in the right direction towards a possible return.
Stephen Piscotty (ankle) could be out "for awhile," said manager Bob Melvin.
Piscotty landed on the 10-day injured list Sunday due to a right ankle sprain. A timeline for his return has yet to be announced, but expect Piscotty to be out most of the regular season.
Stephen Piscotty will be placed on the 10-day IL with a high ankle sprain.
Piscotty tried to play through his ankle injury earlier this week but the A's will play it safe and get him some rest. At this point in the season, there's no need to hold Piscotty, as fantasy owners can find his unspectacular production elsewhere. Mark Canha should continue to play regularly, and Chad Pinder should see more time.
