The 38-year-old guard has serious interest in playing for Golden State, according to a report from USA Today. The Warriors could consider signing Crawford to a veteran’s minimum contract this offseason, the report says.

Jeff Luhnow: I think that from our offense, we looked at how young our position-player group is across the board. [Josh] Reddick has just turned [31], and he’s our veteran. Springer is still young, [Jose] Altuve is young, Correa is young, Bregman Authentic Anthony Miller Jersey is super young. We Womens Carlos Gonzalez Jersey have a young group and they played well together last year. I do believe that there is more in there, even though you have an MVP and other guys who made the All-Star Game, just because they have more experience and more time in the game, and now they’ve won together as a group. Yuli [Gurriel] is just entering his second full season of major league baseball. On the catching side, we’ve got guys who are a little bit older, but that wisdom is what really helps us and helps our pitchers. On the position-player side, we really felt like that group had a chance to be better, even though they had a historic year offensively.

Marcus Semien and Khris Davis drove in runs against Trevor Bauer (7-6) as the A’s followed up a four-game sweep at Detroit with a win in the opener of a five-game homestand.

Jed Lowrie provided insurance with a solo homer in the eighth off Zach McAllister to move Oakland a season-high seven games over .500.

Games like that, it feels like a 10-run homer, manager Bob Melvin said. The guys coming to the plate get your attention in the last inning. It was paramount. It gives you a little bit of wiggle room.

Blake Treinen allowed two baserunners in the ninth before earning his 21st save in 23 chances. He has converted 18 straight save opportunities.

Blackburn (2-2) had a 12.70 ERA his past three starts and struggled early against Cleveland, with four of the first seven batters reaching base safely. But a caught stealing and a double play helped him make it through the first two innings unscathed and he settled down from there.

He retired 14 of the final 15 batters he faced, allowing only a two-out walk to Yonder Alonso in the fourth before leaving after retiring Edwin Encarnacion to open the seventh. Blackburn allowed three hits and struck out five.
