OAKLAND -- A's left fielder Yoenis Cespedes left Sunday's 4-1 win over the Astros after six innings because of a bruised right heel.

Cespedes has been bothered by discomfort in the same heel off and on this season, but it's yet to keep him out of the starting lineup. That could potentially change when the A's open up a three-game series against the visiting Rangers on Monday night.

"We'll see how he is tomorrow," manager Bob Melvin said after Sunday's game. "He's had some sore feet before. It wouldn't surprise me if he's able to play tomorrow. If not, we'll go one day without him."

Cespedes, replaced in left by Craig Gentry to start the seventh, was 0-for-1 with a walk on the day but went 5-for-9 overall in the weekend series. His average sits at .254 after 18 games.
