Fox DFAd upon Suzuki's return

According to Susan Slusser, DH/poor defensive infielder/outfielder/catcher Jake Fox will be DFA'd to make room for Kurt Suzuki's return from the bereavement leave, meaning Landon Powell will stick as the primary backup catcher.  Fox didn't hit, putting up a line of just .214/.264/.327 (.242/.288/.387 v. L), and with Powell outperforming him in a small sample size offensively (and being a real catcher), there was no room left to carry Fox on the roster.

If he clears waivers (Slusser thinks he won't, I think it's 50/50 --- he hasn't stuck with a team before, and after his bad start, I can see him passing through), he'll go to AAA.

In other news Coco Crisp is going to start a rehab assignment soon in AAA, and the A's shuffled their rotation to give Braden and Sheets extra rest, with Trevor Cahill and Gio Gonzalez and Vin Mazzaro going on normal rest to start next week.

Recap of the brutal weekend will be up this evening.
