  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Multi-hit effort in Monday's win

    Schuemann went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a run in a win over the Astros on Monday.

    Schuemann closed out the scoring on the night in the fourth inning with his timely knock, which plated Zack Gelof. The rookie has emerged from the All-Star break with a sizzling bat, going 6-for-11 with two doubles, a home run, six RBI, three walks and seven runs over his first four games. However, he's been consistently delivering at the plate for the majority of July, a month in which he's mustered a .396 average, 1.133 OPS, five extra-base hits and 11 RBI across 60 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Excellent in blowout win

    Schuemann went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, four total RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 13-3 win over the Angels.

    Schuemann got the start at third base rather than shortstop, but he was quickly moved back to his most common position after Jacob Wilson suffered a hamstring strain early in the game. It appeared Wilson's promotion from Triple-A Las Vegas would have a ripple effect on the Athletics' infield, but if the injury lands him on the IL, Schuemann would figure to once again have a clear path to an everyday role at shortstop. For the season, Schuemann is slashing .255/.345/.373 with six home runs, eight doubles, 24 RBI, 39 runs scored and nine stolen bases over 75 contests, though he's been sharper lately, hitting .390 (16-for-41) in July.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Strong finish to first half

    Schuemann went 2-for-4 with a walk and three runs in a win over the Phillies on Sunday. He was also caught stealing on his only attempt.

    The rookie's productive line looks deceptively tame next to those of some of his teammates, considering three Athletics players slugged multiple home runs and Zack Gelof belted a grand slam. However, Schuemann was a very effective table-setting presence out of the bottom of the order, crossing the plate on each of Lawrence Butler's trio of homers. The All-Star break arguably comes at an inopportune time for Schuemann, who heads into the pause in play hitting .357 (10-for-28) over his last eight games while mustering a trio of multi-hit efforts in that span.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Stays hot in Wednesday's win

    Schuemann went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs in a win over the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Schuemann made plenty of noise out of the bottom of the order, generating one of two multi-hit efforts for the Athletics on the night while recording a steal for the second straight game. The rookie shortstop also has an eight-game on-base streak, and he's now posted multi-hit tallies twice in the last four contests.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Grabs eighth steal Tuesday

    Schuemann went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a walk in a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    The rookie extended his on-base streak to seven games, a stretch during which he's cobbled together an impressive .350 average and 1.130 OPS, along with three of his eight steals on the season. Schuemann has a modest four-game hitting streak going as well, pushing his improving season slash line to .236/.329/.347 across 234 plate appearances.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Belts three-run homer

    Schuemann went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, an additional run and a walk in Saturday's 19-8 rout of Baltimore.

    Schuemann mashed Oakland's second three-run homer of the game in the second inning to give the A's an early 6-0 lead. It was his second long ball over his past four contests following a 27-game stretch in which he failed to go deep. Schuemann's multi-hit performance Saturday was his first since June 1, a span of 27 games.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Swipes seventh base Friday

    Schuemann went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Orioles on Friday.

    The Athletics strung together three singles as part of their five hits on the night, and Schuemann was able to parlay his one knock into his seventh stolen base of the season. The rookie has reached safely in seven of his last eight games, including four straight, a stretch that's resulted in a slight boost for his .229/.321/.330 slash line across the board and includes three of his steals for the campaign.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Smacks solo homer

    Schuemann went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's win over the Angels.

    Schuemann jumped on a hanging slider from Davis Daniel in the bottom of the fifth and sent it into the stands in left field for his fourth home run of the campaign. The shortstop has now hit safely in four of his last five games while also driving in at least one run in three of those outings. On the downside, Schuemann has also struck out twice in five of his last eight contests.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Logs steal in win

    Schuemann went 1-for-2 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Angels.

    Schuemann has a steal in two of his last three games, though he's hitting a meager .149 (7-for-47) over his last 15 contests. He's maintained a starting role at shortstop, though his .227/.316/.315 slash line for the year is far from impressive. He's added three home runs, 15 RBI, 26 runs scored and six thefts across 63 games. Armando Alvarez is Schuemann's biggest threat for playing time until Darell Hernaiz (ankle) can return, which is likely to be after the All-Star break.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Taking seat Sunday

    Schuemann is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Schuemann has gone 5-for-41 (.122 average) with a 32.1 percent strikeout rate in his past 13 games and will sit for Sunday's series finale in Arizona. Aledmys Diaz will take over at shortstop and bat ninth.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Records fifth steal

    Schuemann went 1-for-3 with two RBI and one stolen base in Friday's 9-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Schuemann supplied a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning and an RBI single in the eighth. The 27-year-old has gone 21 games without a multi-hit effort since his 4-for-4 performance in Atlanta on June 1. He was hitting .266 after that game, but he's at .226 now while adding a .630 OPS, three home runs, 15 RBI, 26 runs scored and five steals across 61 contests.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Drives in two

    Schuemann went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and a sacrifice fly Wednesday against the Angels.

    Schuemann hadn't logged an RBI since June 1 and drove in multiple runs for just the third time all season. Still, his productive day could've been even better, but Kyle McCann was called out at home due to runner's interference on Schuemann's second-inning double, preventing an additional RBI. Operating as the Athletics' everyday shortstop, Schuemann is batting 14-for-69 (.203) with a 27.8 percent strikeout rate in June.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Rough start in leadoff role

    Schuemann hit leadoff in both of the Athletics' games against the Twins over the weekend after Abraham Toro's (hamstring) placement on the injured list, going 0-for-8 with four strikeouts.

    Schuemann, who went into Saturday's game having reached safely in four straight, may not be long for the top of the order given the results, although manager Mark Kotsay might exhibit some patience. Toro has put together a .240 average and .613 OPS as the leadoff hitter this season, so the standard he's set isn't extraordinarily high by any means. Nevertheless, there are several other candidates Kotsay could turn to for the role, so Schuemann, who's most frequently hit in the No. 7 and No. 9 spots this season, could soon shift back down the order.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Reaches three times in win

    Schuemann went 0-for-2 with three walks and a run in a win over the Royals on Wednesday.

    Schuemann's busy night on the basepaths surprisingly led to only one run, but it did push his OBP back up to an improving .318. The rookie has hit safely in three of the last four games, and his walk rate has now hit double digits (10.1 percent) after also sitting at that threshold in each of the last six minor-league stops before his promotion.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: On bench for nightcap

    Schuemann is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader with Minnesota, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Schuemann will head to the bench after he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's 6-2 loss in the matinee. Aledmys Diaz will take over at shortstop and bat eighth in the nightcap.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Getting day off

    Schuemann is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game in Minnesota.

    Schuemann wore the golden sombrero in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, so he will be given the day off Thursday to regroup. Aledmys Diaz will draw the start at shortstop.

  • Athletics' Max Schuemann: Records fourth steal in loss

    Schuemann went 1-for-3 with a stolen base in a loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday.

    The Athletics fell victim to Kevin Gausman's first career shutout and went down on strikes 10 times against the veteran right-hander, so Schuemann's performance is one that passes for a successful one in that context. The rookie now has singles in back-to-back games and is enjoying a solid June thus far, producing a .348 average and .766 OPS across his first 24 plate appearances of the month (seven games).
