Suzuki getting closer

ARLINGTON -- In an attempt to return to the A's lineup as early as this weekend, catcher Kurt Suzuki plans on taking batting practice with Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday before playing in a game with the River Cats on Friday.

Suzuki, nursing back an intercostal strain, was expected to join the team in Texas on Wednesday after going 2-for-2 with a double, home run, three runs and three RBIs for Sacramento on Tuesday. However, Suzuki reported soreness when he returned to his hotel, thus putting a halt to his potential return.

He'll make another go at it, manager Bob Geren said, and hopefully be activated Saturday or Sunday.
