The Athletics will need a fifth starter, either¬†on Monday or Tuesday, after optioning Aaron Brooks back to Triple-A Nashville. Felix Doubront is expected to get that start, MLB.com’s Jane Lee reports.

Sonny Gray was scratched from his scheduled start on Thursday against the Blue Jays due to back spasms. He’s expected to return to the rotation either on Monday or Tuesday. Doubront would get the other day. Gray threw a 25-pitch bullpen on Saturday and didn’t report any issues.
