THREE KEY A'S PLAYERS Yoenis Cespedes: He was the star of the Home Run Derby at the All-Star game, but in his final 19 games heading into the break, he hit .197 with no homers, one double and three RBIs. The A's won 12 of the 19, but they need more from their left fielder. Josh Reddick: His breakout season in 2012 hasn't been followed up by much production. The right fielder is healthy again, and the A's are hoping for a big second half. Brett Anderson: His 4-2 record, 2.57 ERA down the stretch last year earned him the opening day start this season, but he's 1-4 with a 6.21 ERA and hasn't pitched since April 29 because of a stress fracture in his right foot. Is another six-week outburst in the offing?
