The AP is now listing LHP Greg Smith as Oakland’s starter for tomorrow night. So Richie Sexson could be in the lineup right away. He has never faced Smith.

Meanwhile, Brian Bruney pitched two innings for Scranton tonight. He allowed one run on one hit with one walk and three strikeouts against Lehigh Valley. Bruney threw 36 pitches, 23 of them strikes, according to Chad Jennings.

Bruney’s line in 5 rehab games: 8.1 6 4 3 5 11.

He’s close to coming back. They might want to see him go back-to-back days. Relievers usually need 10 or 11 innings before they’re good to go.
