Cespedes scratched with sore left hand
OAKLAND -- Yoenis Cespedes was a late scratch from the A's lineup on Tuesday because of soreness in his left hand and is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.

Cespedes was seen nursing his hand after taking only a handful of swings during batting practice before departing the field, and manager Bob Melvin confirmed after his team's 7-3 win that the outfielder's injury was sustained while swinging.

In his place, Josh Reddick moved from right field to center field, where he compiled eight career starts while with Boston. Michael Taylor took over right-field duties, with Seth Smith starting in left field.
