Kyle Ryan (1-0, 3.00 ERA) vs. Jose Quintana (2-6, 4.33 ERA)
Ryan didn't arrive in Oakland with enough time to make a spot start last Wednesday, though he pitched three-plus innings in relief. He has ample time to prepare for the White Sox in Justin Verlander's rotation slot.Quintana has made five quality starts over his past seven trips to the mound but has a 1-5 record during that stretch. He has an 11.00 ERA in two starts against the Tigers this season and a 4.32 ERA at home.

Alfredo Simon (5-3, 2.97 ERA) vs. Jeff Samardzija (4-3, 4.68 ERA)
Simon had a one-hit shutout through six innings Tuesday despite five walks before and A's seventh-inning comeback knocked him out. He gave up three runs on five hits in five innings against the White Sox on May 6 in Chicago.The defense didn't help Samardzija in his last start against the Rangers, but his location also was slightly off by his own admission. Samardzija has been hit hard in the first innins this season, allowing 16 runs on 23 hits in 11 starts.
