The 2022 Oakland Athletics season is the 122nd season for the Oakland Athletics franchise, all as members of the American League. It is their 55th season in Oakland (all at Oakland Coliseum), which would surpass the amount of seasons they played in their original home of Philadelphia (54 seasons). On November 1, 2021, Bob Melvin was hired away from the A's by the San Diego Padres for their manager position. Mark Kotsay was named as Melvin's successor on December 21, 2021.[1]

On December 2, 2021, Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred announced a lockout of players, following expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA). On March 10, 2022, the MLB and MLBPA agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, thus ending the lockout. Opening Day is scheduled for April 7.[2] Although MLB previously announced that several series would be cancelled due to the lockout, the agreement provides for a 162-game season, with originally canceled games to be made up via doubleheaders.[3]

Offseason

Lockout

Main article: 2021–22 Major League Baseball lockout

The expiration of the league's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Major League Baseball Players Association occurred on December 1, 2021 with no new agreement in place.[4] As a result, the team owners voted unanimously to lockout the players stopping all free agency and trades.[5][6]

The parties came to an agreement on a new CBA on March 10, 2022.[7]

Rule changes

Pursuant to the new CBA, several new rules were instituted for the 2022 season. The National League will adopt the designated hitter full-time, a draft lottery will be implemented, the postseason will expand from ten teams to twelve, and advertising patches will appear on player uniforms and helmets for the first time.[8][9]
