- The A’s position players are still waiting for their delayed test results.
The A’s may have to wait a bit longer than Monday for position players to report to the Coliseum.
Because of the holiday *and* MLB didn’t schedule a Sunday delivery, tests A’s took on Friday still haven’t been shipped from San Francisco to the lab in Utah, I’m told.

- The Angels also share concerns with the A’s about delayed test results.
Angels had own issue with testing today. Per sources, testers did not show. Players did saliva tests on their own; unclear if/how tests were shipped to lab in Utah. But Monday workout was pushed back from 9 am PT to noon, seemingly to give lab more time to determine results. https://t.co/BGD0FQGmGr
