News: The Oakland Athletics have put Gentry on the 15-day disabled list because of a broken right hand. Impact: Gentry was injured Sunday at Texas when he hit by a pitch. He was on the disabled list at the start of the season with a lower back strain. (STATS, 8:42pm)

News: Gentry expects to miss two weeks as a result of the non-displaced fracture in his right hand, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: The fact that Gentry's fracture is non-displaced provides a dose of good news, since he'll likely avoid surgery and miss close to the 15-day minimum instead of several weeks. Gentry suffered the same type of injury last season to his left hand while attempting a bunt, resulting in a similar absence of about two weeks.(RotoWire, )

News: Gentry sustained a broken right hand while attempting a bunt Sunday and was placed on the 15-day DL, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: The Athletics haven't revealed a precise timetable for Gentry's return, but given the recovery period experienced by other players with similar injuries, it's realistic to expect the outfielder to miss several weeks. The Athletics have recalled speed maven Billy Burns to take his spot on the active roster.(RotoWire, )

News: Gentry replaced the injured Coco Crisp on Sunday and scored two runs. Crisp went back to the Bay Area to get his neck examined, CSN Bay Area reports.

News: Gentry is not in the lineup Thursday against the Astros.

News: Gentry is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros. Impact: Gentry has been battling significant knee soreness for several weeks now, but he's been able to play through it for the most part. However, with Josh Reddick back on the active roster, Gentry will likely be given more maintenance days in the short term.(RotoWire, )

News: Gentry is batting second and playing right field Tuesday, but he is still dealing with significant knee soreness, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: It's not something that will keep Gentry out of the lineup, as it doesn't affect his speed, but he said he is in pain when he slows or stands, which could theoretically hinder his effectiveness at the plate. Still, now that Josh Reddick is off the DL, there will be fewer at-bats to go around in Oakland, so Gentry should get plenty of days off in the coming weeks.(RotoWire, )
