Seth Brown (oblique) not in lineup for Athletics Friday

The Oakland Athletics did not list Seth Brown (oblique) as a starter for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels.

What It Means:

Brown suffered an oblique injury during Thursday's game and was forced to exit that contest as a result. He'll sit out Friday's game as well while Esteury Ruiz joins the lineup in right field and bats seventh.

Brown has made 378 plate appearances with the A's so far this season, with 14 homers, 33 runs, 52 RBI, 3 stolen bases, and a .222 batting average.
