Athletics' Chad Pinder: Clubs 10th homer

Pinder went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Angels. Pinder prevented the shutout in the ninth inning, but the Athletics never threatened for a comeback. Five of the utility man's 10 homers this year have come in his last 17 contests, though his long ball Tuesday was his first since July 26. The 30-year-old has gone 4-for-19 (.211) in August and now sports a .242/.267/.411 slash line through 278 plate appearances this year.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Steps out of lineup

Pinder is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox. Pinder will take a seat after he went 8-for-30 with two home runs, two doubles, eight RBI and three additional runs while starting in eight of the Athletics' first 10 games out of the All-Star break. The Athletics don't have a clear-cut everyday position available for Pinder at the moment, but he should continue to pick up a handful of starts per week as a super-utility man.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Swats second grand slam in July

Pinder went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Astros. Pinder has enjoyed a resurgent July, batting .302 with four homers (including two grand slams) and 17 RBI in 15 contests this month. The 30-year-old's big blast in the third inning was all the offense the Athletics needed to secure Tuesday's win. The utility man is now slashing .247/.272/.418 with nine long balls, 33 RBI, 26 runs scored and two stolen bases through 68 games this year. He's drawn much of his recent playing time in left field or at first base, though the hot hitting should go a long way to keeping him in the lineup against both lefties and righties.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Power surge persists in loss

Pinder went 2-for-5 with a two-run double, a solo home run and an additional run in a loss to the Rangers on Sunday. Pinder wreaked havoc on Rangers pitching in a wild last two innings for the Athletics, first igniting a seven-run rally with his eighth-inning two-bagger and then following it up with a 384-foot laser to left field in the ninth, his eighth homer of the season. The 30-year-old has been on an impressive power-hitting tear since prior to the All-Star break, posting seven extra-base hits (four doubles, three homers), 12 RBI and a .750 slugging percentage over the 33 plate appearances covering his last eight games.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Blasts three-run homer

Pinder went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Monday's 10-8 loss to the Rangers. Pinder snapped a homer drought dating back to May 27 with his eighth-inning blast. This was also just his second game of the year with multiple RBI. The 30-year-old has gone 4-for-19 (.211) through six games in July, and he's slashing a meager .229/.257/.366 with six homers, 20 RBI, 18 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases in 59 contests overall. Despite his defensive versatility, the righty-hitting Pinder hadn't started against a right-handed pitcher since June 26 prior to being in the lineup against Spencer Howard on Monday. Pinder remains a staple in the Athletics' lineup versus southpaws.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Retreats to bench

Pinder is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees. Pinder had started at three different spots (left field, right field and designated hitter) over the past three contests, but he'll head to the bench Wednesday with right-hander Jameson Taillon on the mound for New York. Though the righty-hitting Pinder should play regularly against left-handed pitching, the Athletics are likely to deploy him more selectively against righties.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Starts after two-game absence

Pinder will start in right field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. After sitting out Friday and Saturday, Pinder will check back into the starting nine for the series finale, entering the outfield in place of a resting Ramon Laureano. Though Pinder has the ability to play either corner-infield spot as well as multiple infield positions, he doesn't look like he'll be in store for anything more than a part-time role while he's holding down a middling .239/.266/.375 slash line on the season.

Oakland A’s overplaying their hand with Chad Pinder

Chad Pinder is the type of player that should get plenty of attention prior to the trade deadline. His ability to play either corner outfield position, as well as second and third, makes him a valuable player on any major league bench. Add in his solid pop and a respectable bat, and one can see why he would be a valued trade target.

Athletics' Chad Pinder: Three hits in return

Pinder (neck) went 3-for-4 with a double in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Guardians. Pinder missed three straight games due to a stiff neck before he rejoined the lineup and set a new season high with three hits. Though he's turned in a .698 OPS for the season and a .669 mark since the beginning of May, Pinder has still managed to carve out a near-everyday role in the lineup, but his opportunities may become more limited moving forward with the hot-hitting Christian Bethancourt making a case for a full-time role on the heels of a big weekend against Cleveland.
