A's extend stay at leaky ballpark

OAKLAND, Calif. — Athletics owner Lew Wolff said Wednesday that the club has reached a 10-year lease agreement with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority to stay at the Oakland Coliseum.

The deal that would run through 2025 is subject to approval by the Coliseum Joint Powers Authority, in a vote set for Friday, plus the City of Oakland and Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

The two-time defending AL West champions are still hoping for a new stadium. The rundown Coliseum has had multiple sewage problems in the past year and had an outage affecting the outfield lights against the Yankees on June 14.

MACHADO SUSPENSION: Orioles 3B Manny Machado stated his case for the reduction of the five-game suspension he received for intentionally throwing his bat on the field against Oakland on June 8. The Orioles open a series against the Rays on Friday.

TOP PROSPECT DONE: SS Carlos Correa, the Astros' top prospect and one of the best in baseball, had season-ending surgery after breaking his right fibula.

MANNY JOINS CUBS: The Iowa Cubs said former big-leaguer Manny Ramirez will begin his stint as a player/coach for Chicago's Triple-A affiliate today.

BLUE JAYS: OF Kevin Pillar was sent back to Triple-A Buffalo a day after he threw his bat down the dugout steps when he was pulled for a pinch-hitter.

GIANTS: CF and leadoff hitter Angel Pagan went on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to June 15 with a lower back strain.

MARLINS: SS Adeiny Hechavarria went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained triceps muscle.

TWINS: Opening day CF Aaron Hicks was activated from the 15-day disabled list and optioned to Double-A New Britain.
