Fellow starter Kendall Graveman is suffering from the same illness, so the A’s are hoping to contain the clubhouse germs before any further damage is done.

Today’s Oakland Athletics Lineup vs. Chicago White Sox:
To Be Determined
The Oakland Athletics are 0-2 after their first two games, but with ace Sonny Gray on the mound, they have a good chance to turn things around on Wednesday. Last year, Gray was nominated for the American League Cy Young Award, after going 14-7 with a 2.73 ERA and 169 strikeouts in 208 innings.

Meanwhile, Rodon will toe the rubber for the ChiSox. The 23-year-old was 9-6 last year, and struck out 139 batters in 139.1 innings. He finished the year with a 3.75 era in his first major league season. Rodon was the first-round draft pick of the White Sox in 2014, and didn’t even spend a full calendar year in the minors before being called up to the big leagues.
A’s Fact of the Day: Billy Butler has hit two doubles in his first two games, which may be a good sign for the A’s. Last season, Billy Butler’s second extra-base hit didn’t come until April 12, a week into the regular season. He hit a home run the following game, so maybe history will repeat itself on Wednesday.
