Starter Kendall Graveman demoted to Triple-A Nashville
Rookie Kendall Graveman, who couldn’t quite get on track after a superb spring training, will have to work out his issues at Triple-A Nashville after being demoted on Sunday, and Jesse Chavez took his spot in Oakland’s rotation.
Graveman, 24, was pitching at Class-A this time last year and had a rapid rise through Toronto’s system before being dealt to Oakland in the Josh Donaldson trade.
Graveman said he might have been putting too much pressure on himself, rushing and throwing off his delivery — he didn’t have the same sink on his fastball he was getting during the spring.
Graveman had a 0.66 ERA during the spring, best in the majors, and, manager Bob Melvin said, We expect him back.
Reliever Ryan Cook, an All-Star with Oakland in 2012, was recalled and Melvin said he’s pegged potentially for seventh-inning duty, at least initially.
Cook was 2-0 with five scoreless appearances for Nashville, and opponents were batting .059 against him.
Effective as a starter in the first half of 2014, Chavez was terrific in a spot start for last week, allowing the Angels just one hit (a two-run homer by Kole Calhoun) in six innings.
Hahn missed his last start with a blister, but threw a bullpen session and the A’s will evaluate how well he came through that on Monday before deciding where to slot him back into the rotation.
Sonny Gray is firmly in place as Tuesday’s starter and Wednesday usually would be Hahn’s spot, but the A’s always could just slot Chavez into that spot and move Hahn back, perhaps even slot him in so that Scott Kazmir misses the Angels again.
Susan Slusser is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
The A’s signed utility player Ryan Roberts and assigned him to Triple-A Nashville, which has lost Tyler Ladendorf to an ankle injury and Max Muncy to a call-up.
Match Play format change has golfers intrigued
The world’s top golfers previously brought an acute sense of anxiety to the Match Play Championship.
For the first time since the tournament’s inception in 1999, one loss does not automatically mean elimination.
PGA Tour officials adopted a new format for this week’s event, ensuring that all players in the field will compete for at least three days.
Match play isn’t really the fairest format, but this makes it a lot fairer.
Simply put, the tournament’s new structure duplicates that of World Cup soccer, with group play leading into single-elimination matches (or the “knockout” stage, if you prefer).
The top 64 players in the world ranking qualified for this week’s event, as in the past.
Head-to-head results will be used to break two-way ties, with sudden-death playoffs for three-way ties.
The quarterfinals will follow Saturday afternoon, with the semifinals Sunday morning and the championship match Sunday afternoon.
 fan favorites such as Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson will linger in San Francisco for at least three days.
Most players like the new format, though Webb Simpson, winner of the 2012 U.
From Staff ReportsLAWRENCE, Kan. — Lauren Chamberlain failed to hit an NCAA-record 91st career home run, but Oklahoma clinched a share of its fourth consecutive Big 12 championship with a 7-4 softball victory over Kansas on Sunday afternoon at Arrocha Park.
