Frank Thomas tweaked his quad muscle again, and since he would probably have to miss a couple of games this weekend, and the following nine games are all in National League parks where he wouldn't play anyway, the A's put him on the DL.
How convieeeeeeeeeenient. He'll be eligible to return when the A's come back home, where the DHes roam, and the pitchers don't swing bats all year.
Jeremy Brown replaces him on the 25-man roster. It's the third time he's been called up this year. He hasn't played yet. Here's hoping he gets at least one AB this time.
