Today’s lineup vs. Angels

Lots of regulars are getting the day off today against the Angels, though Eric Chavez at DH is one big exception. Bob Geren said he’s mapped out playing schedules for his starters over the next several days. Some guys he’s going to play every other day, others will have a two days-on, one day-off schedule. As for Chavy, Geren said yesterday the A’s are targeting Tuesday for his first action at third base.

Today’s lineup: Sweeney, CF; Denorfia LF; Chavez DH; Cust RF; Carter 1B; Hannahan 3B; Pennington SS; Bowen C; Patterson 2B;
