The Oakland Athletics have had a pretty solid start to the 2021 season, going 50-29 so far and sitting in second place in the AL West, 4.5 games back of the Houston Astros. What they don't need while fighting for a division title is to be hit with the injury bug. Unfortunately for the A's, that has happened with Chad Pinder.
Pinder is dealing with a hamstring injury, something that is reoccurring for him and Bob Melvin's outlook is not optimistic. projecting Pinder will miss "at least a month."
Pinder is only hitting .216 this season in 46 games, but he provides valuable infield depth for this A's team.
Oakland is currently +500 to win the AL West according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest MLB odds.
