A's Activate OF Coco Crisp from 15-Day DL -- The Oakland Athletics activated outfielder Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list and optioned outfielder Craig Gentry to Triple-A Nashville, the team announced on Wednesday.

The A’s placed Crisp on the 15-day disabled list on April 3 after he underwent surgery on his right elbow. On a rehab assignment with Single-A Stockton, he went 2-for-8 with a double, RBI and a walk in two games.

Gentry was hitting .086 with two RBIs in 16 games with Oakland this season. He began the year on an 0-for-22 skid.

A's Place Zobrist On DL

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(OAKLAND) -- The Oakland Athletics have placed Ben Zobrist on the 15-day disabled list as he will undergo surgery to repair torn cartilage in his knee.

"I'm disappointed. I just didn't feel like I could be the player that this team needs me to be in the condition I was trying to play in," Zobrist said. "So I got to get it cleaned up and get back out here as soon as possible."

Zobrist hurt his knee sliding into second base when Oakland was playing Kansas City last Sunday. He rested for a few days but could not play through the pain when the team utilized him as a designated hitter Thursday against the Angels.

"I just wasn't getting out of the box well at all, and frankly, the worst thing out of it was just trying to swing," he said. "When I swung right-handed specifically it put a lot of pressure on that front knee, the left knee. I just didn't feel like I was in the kind of condition I need to be to help the club."

Zobrist has one home run, eight RBI and is batting .240 through 56 plate appearances this season.

Oakland A's Top Washington Nationals in 10 Innings, 4-3

Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- A’s catcher John Jaso doubled home pinch runner Nick Punto in the bottom of the 10th inning to give Oakland (22-15) a 4-3 victory over the Washington Nationals (19-17) on Saturday night.

Jaso took the first pitch from Nationals reliever Drew Storen and sent it to right field for the comeback win. The Nationals had a two-run lead entering the bottom of the ninth, but closer Rafael Soriano blew the save, allowing an RBI double to A’s shortstop Jed Lowrie and an RBI single to third baseman Jason Donaldson.

A’s reliever Sean Doolittle picked up his first victory of the season, striking out three batters over two scoreless innings of work.

After the game, Nationals manager Matt Williams announced the club will place first baseman Adam LaRoche on the disabled list because of a strained right quad.

City Of San Jose Sues Major League Baseball Over Oakland A's

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(SAN JOSE, Calif.) -- The city of San Jose filed a lawsuit in federal court on Tuesday against Major League Baseball, accusing the league of taking part in an illegal conspiracy to limit competition by blocking the Oakland Athletics from moving to San Jose.

The San Francisco Giants own territorial rights to San Jose and have objected to the potential move. The A’s claim those territorial rights were temporarily given to the Giants when they were trying to build a ballpark in San Jose in the early '90s. The lawsuit claims that territorial rights reduce competition and harm consumers.

“The lawsuit is an unfounded attack on the fundamental structures of a professional sports league," MLB said in a statement. "It is regrettable that the city has resorted to litigation that has no basis in law or in fact.”

The A’s have been playing in Oakland since 1968, when they moved there from Kansas City.
