Report: Athletics calling up A.J. Puk

MLB.com’s Martín Gallegos reports that the Athletics will call up pitching prospect A.J. Puk from Triple-A Las Vegas ahead of Tuesday’s series opener against the Yankees.

Puk, 24, was selected by the A’s in the first round (sixth overall) in the 2016 draft. MLB Pipeline ranks him as the organization’s No. 2 prospect behind Jesús Luzardo, and No. 43 across the league.

Something for those of us collecting great names.

A’s go for 10 straight as Angels visit

When it comes to baseball player names, Skye Bolt has to be right up there with the best.

The Oakland Athletics rookie outfielder got his first major league start Sunday afternoon against visiting Seattle. Bolt went 0-for-3 with a walk and scored a run as the A’s extended their winning streak to nine consecutive games with a 7-1 victory.

They’ll go for No. 10 in a row Monday afternoon when they open a three-game series at home against the American League West rival Los Angeles Angels.

Sunday capped a travel-laden week for Bolt, who took a red-eye flight to join the A’s in Cleveland only to find that designated hitter Khris Davis wasn’t quite ready to go on the 10-day injured list. Bolt returned to Triple-A Las Vegas without officially being called up.

So, did Skye Bolt escape from a novel, and, if so, what was its genre?
