Josh Outman became the 11th player to make his major league debut with the Oakland A's this season. With Outman and Aaron Cunningham on-board now and more September call-ups likely to follow after the minor league post-season concludes, the future of the Oakland A's franchise will be on display for the season's final month.

Frank Thomas returned to the Oakland A's line-up on Thursday, and so did the A's power game.

Thomas is glad to be back in Oakland after a little over one year absence.
