A's bring up OF Smolinski, option RHP Bassitt to Triple-A

NEW YORK (AP) The Oakland Athletics called up outfielder Jake Smolinski from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday and optioned right-hander Chris Bassitt to their top farm club.

Smolinski, claimed off waivers from Texas on June 21, was on the bench against the New York Yankees waiting to make his Oakland debut. Manager Bob Melvin said Smolinski will play mostly against left-handed pitching, a problem area for the A's.

Oakland is 5-16 against left-handed starters, the second-worst mark in the majors. The Athletics began the day hitting .238 with 15 home runs vs. southpaws, compared to .267 with 55 homers off right-handers.
