"The A’s are quietly putting together their playoff pitching staff, which will look nothing like the one they had in August. Sean Manaea has a 1.21 ERA in five starts. Jesus Luzardo is at 1.80 in five relief appearances. A.J. Puk has been tough out of the pen, allowing just a 652 OPS. They could do worse than line those three up in some order, with Liam Hendriks and Yusmeiro Petit, for Wednesday’s wild-card game."
