A's recall Milone, Scribner, Neshek; Moss wins weekly honor

OAKLAND -- The A's made several more September call-ups today, recalling Tommy Milone and Evan Scribner from the minors and selecting Pat Neshek from Triple-A. Reliever Hideki Okajima was designated for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Neshek, who was outrighted to Triple-A last week. The A's released catcher Luke Montz, who was designated for assignment when they called up Michael Choice.

Milone, Scribner and Neshek are all listed on the A's lineup card in the bullpen, giving them 11 relievers in all. Coco Crisp, who fouled a ball off his right shin Monday, is in the lineup at designated hitter, with Chris Young in center field and Choice, who made his major-league debut Monday, in right. Here's the full lineup:

DH Crisp
3B Donaldson
SS Lowrie
LF Cespedes
1B Moss
2B Callaspo
RF Young
C Suzuki
RF Choice

One name not in that lineup -- Brandon Moss, who today was named the A.L. Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday. Moss led all big-league hitters with four homers, 11 RBIs and 21 total bases and tied for second with eight runs scored as the A's went 6-1 during the week. Yet another sign of how thoroughly manager Bob Melvin believes in his platoons, with the Rangers throwing a left-hander in rookie Martin Perez, who went 5-0 in August.

It's Bartolo Colon on the mound for the A's. The Rangers' lineup against Colon:

CF Gentry
SS Profar
2B Kinsler
3B Beltre
C Pierzynski
RF Rios
1B Moreland
DH Berkman
LF Murphy
