The grades are in. The A’s went 12-16 in June and continued to struggle collectively throughout the month. Let’s briefly recap the A’s month of June.
The Oakland Athletics entered July with a 35-45 record. But just like they did with June, the A’s flopped on the first day of the month with a 4-3 loss to the Braves.
Bob Melvin had to part ways with several of his veteran players in June due to lack of production. Things were, to be quite honest, ugly in June.
Matt Chapman and Franklin Barreto both made their debuts in June. They are expected to help the A’s usher in a new era of baseball for the city of Oakland. With Chapman and Barreto the A’s are hoping the two infielders are players who can carry the franchise into the future.
Heading into July, though, the A’s are hoping for better results. Those results will depend on whether or not Bob Melvin’s group can learn from their mistakes in June. Let’s take a look at the grades the A’s received for their June performance.
