Callaspo exits with forearm injury after play at plate

CINCINNATI -- A's second baseman Alberto Callaspo exited Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Reds because of a left forearm contusion and is considered day to day, though he believes he'll be fine for Friday's series opener in Toronto.

Callaspo suffered the injury on a play at the plate in the fourth, when he was tagged out trying to score from second on a Stephen Vogt single. He was replaced by Eric Sogard at second base in the bottom half of the inning.

Before his departure, Callaspo collected two doubles in as many at-bats off Reds righty Homer Bailey, not only marking his first hits in an A's uniform, but also snapping an 0-for-18 streak.

"I'm just trying to do my job," Callaspo said.

"It was great," said Josh Donaldson of Callaspo's offensive showing. "Playing against him for the last couple years, he's one of those guys that grinds on you, battles you, and if you make a mistake, he has the chance to leave the yard. For him to get rolling, hopefully that's going to help our team."
