The 23-year-old has 32 strikeouts and has walked just three in 452/3 innings with the Sounds. Cotton, 24, was acquired in the July trade that sent Reddick to the Dodgers, and he has done some eye-popping work with the Sounds, too, going 3-1 with a 2.82 ERA and coming within one out of a perfect game in his second start with Nashville.

Many A’s players sent jerseys to the Red Sox clubhouse this weekend for the potential Hall of Famer to sign. “I was in the batting cage and he came in and he gave me a big bear hug like he’d known me all his life,” Healy said. Catcher Stephen Vogt has gotten to know Ortiz a bit, and, he said, I was so blessed to hear him speak at the All-Star Game, and I’m looking around the room because I wanted to see the way other veterans were looking at him. Danny Valencia played with Ortiz in Boston and said he was a particularly helpful teammate, but it’s his continued productivity that most impresses.
