OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin left spring training to tend to a personal matter.

A timetable for Melvin’s return to Arizona was unclear, the club said Friday. Bench coach Mark Kotsay will manage the A’s during Melvin’s absence.

The 55-year-old Melvin is beginning his fifth season managing Oakland after previous managerial stints with Seattle and Arizona.
