Athletics Manager Mark Coates Gives Way To Brad Osmus As Daughter Graduates From High School

The Athletics will attempt to recover from their latest home loss on Saturday without manager Mark Cootse.

Kotse boarded a flight to San Diego just before 6 a.m. to see her daughter Grace’s high school graduation. His role will be filled by 53-year-old bench coach Brad Osmus, who has five years of managerial experience with the Detroit Tigers (2014-17) and Los Angeles Angels (2019).

“We didn’t have to talk specifically about the game,” Osmus told reporters about his marching order. “We are talking on a daily basis, pregame and in-game. I know exactly how he likes to run the game.”

Before Coats’ departure, they suffered another defeat at the Coliseum, in a game Friday that saw the Texas Rangers lose 8-5, with the Athletics leading 5-2. After a good start in a game including home runs by Shaun Murphy and Chad Pinder, the Athletics bats fell silent for the final two-thirds of the game, which has exceeded expectations this season, faltered and Rangers left-hander Cole Irwin. After a strong start, he scored six runs in the last three innings.

In contrast, A did not receive a single hit when Pinder struck with one of his own (also his fifth) to cap the five-run knock in the third innings after Murphy’s single home run (his fifth). followed. Irwin was dismissed in the seventh innings by throwing 93 pitches. His successors – Justin Grimm, Zach Jackson and Danny Jimenez – gave away seven hits and four earned runs in 2 2/3 innings.

Jimenez, who had only one earned run left this season, opened ninth in a 5–5 game and conceded three hits and three earned runs as his record fell to 1–2. Adam Kolarek finished last of ninth for A.

“In terms of the bullpen, he has done a great job all year round,” Kotse said. “Not our usual night with a pen.”

A (19-29) fell to 6-16 at the Coliseum before a crowd of 6-16 opposed 13-13 on the street. They are 10 games under .500 for the second time this season (17-27). There haven’t been more than 10 games under .500 since the 75-87 finish in 2017.

“On offense, we had a big innings and they shut us down,” Kotse said. “We needed to add up and we didn’t.”

The Osmus had a 386–422 record in five seasons with the Tigers and Angels.

Grimm nominated for assignment

Grimm, who gave a double to Nathaniel Lowe in the seventh inning, was named for Saturday’s assignment with the Athletics at Triple-A Las Vegas calling right-hander Austin Pruitt. The 32-year-old has pitched for three major league teams – Tampa Bay (2017–19), Houston (2021) and Miami (2021). With Las Vegas, Pruitt was 1–0 with a 3.27 earned run average in 12 relief outings. Grimm has been with the A ever since training camp broke and had a 4.11 ERA in 15 appearances. He will be eligible to return to Las Vegas if he clears the waiver.
