Andrew Bailey plays catch, return date still unknown

Not a whole lot to report from the A’s pregame scene … Andrew Bailey played catch at 60 feet, and he’s likely to play catch again at a longer distance before he gets on the mound. So there’s no clear timetable for when he’ll come off the DL. But this weekend appears a little optimistic …

Here’s your lineups:

A’s — Crisp CF, Barton 1B, Suzuki C, Cust DH, Kouzmanoff 3B, Ellis 2B, Davis RF, Watson LF, Pennington SS; Anderson LHP.

Royals — Getz 2B, Aviles 3B, Butler DH, Guillen RF, Ka’aihue 1B, Pena C, Gordon LF, Maier CF, Betancourt SS; O’Sullivan RHP.
