Found April 21, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
MLB News: The Oakland Athletics optioned pitcher Evan Scribner to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday. While he did get shelled in his last appearance against the Tampa Bay Rays, giving up 4 earned runs in 3.0 innings pitched, truth be told, his season wasn’t really going that bad before it, allowing 2 earned runs in 7 innings. This is kind of a head scratching move as he was replaced on the roster with Jesse Chavez, a pitcher who owns a career ERA of 5.99. Fantasy Ramifications: There is no fantasy baseball relevance to this transaction. The post Oakland Athletics Option Pitcher Evan Scribner appeared first on FFLockerRoom | NFL - MLB News | Fantasy Sports Advice | Sports Talk.

The Oakland Athletics have recalled right-hander Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Sacramento and optioned pitcher Evan Scribner to the Pacific Coast League club.

Oakland Athletics Recall Pitcher Jesse Chavez

MLB News: The Oakland Athletics recalled pitcher Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Sacramento. The 29-year old who owns a 5.99 earned run average was doing decent in the strike out department for Sacramento, striking out more than one per inning in three starts. Fantasy Ramifications: Let history be the teacher here. A career 5.99 ERA is simply something that shouldn’t even be considered...

Josh Reddick Meets Saddest Man Alive

And we may not stop there, he could be in the running for saddest man to have ever lived. According to Reddick's tweet last night, he met Lil Hogan here at Hogan's Beach, which is a Hulk Hogan-themed bar/restaurant in the Tampa area. Reddick and the Athletics are in town this weekend for a series with the Rays. Back to our friend here, though. Here are our options: He is...

Josh Reddick Shaves Beard, After Most Likely Losing Bet To WWE’s Daniel Bryan

  Let us all let out a resounding ‘Hallelujah!’ Oakland A’s outfielder Josh Reddick has finally shaved off his massive beard. The beard from Hell began as part of a twitter bet with WWE’s Daniel Bryan. The deal was that both Reddick and Bryan would grow out their beards and by year’s end fans would vote on who had the better beard, and the loser would shave off theirs...

Josh Reddick Cuts Hair, Trims Beard, Likely Loses Bet to WWE’s Daniel Bryan

Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick had a beard-growing contest with WWE superstar Daniel Bryan. By year’s end, fans would vote on the better beard, and whoever “lost” would have to shave their facial hair off. It appears that Reddick has already accepted defeat at the expense of some old fashioned superstition. Reddick came to the ballpark on Saturday with a haircut...

Josh Reddick shaved his beard (Photo)

You could probably call off that beard competition between Josh Reddick and WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan. Reddick has been in a public “beard off” with the WWE star since March. But, in the midst of the 2-for-22 slump, the outfielder cleaned up his look on Saturday, as he has done in the past when struggling, and as as a result no longer looks like a smelly homeless person: For...

Rays CF Desmond Jennings turns rare unassisted double play at first base (Video)

A bit of history happened during Saturday’s contest between the A’s and Rays. It occurred after Eric Sogard, inexplicably thinking the ball would drop (yes, he had his glasses on), ran without hesitation from first to third on a nonthreatening fly to center field with one out. Bad news for the A’s; good news for the Rays and center fielder Desmond Jennings, whom the baserunning...

A's hopeful Yoenis Cespedes will return Sunday, acquire Casper Wells

Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes looks to be on track to return from the DL this Sunday as he continues his recovery from a hand injury. Cespedes had strained a muscle in his left hand on April 12 when sliding in to second base during the A's extra-inning win against the Detroit Tigers. Cespedes could be heading for a rehab assignment as early as Friday, according...

Oakland Athletics Acquire Outfielder Casper Wells From Toronto

MLB News: The Oakland Athletics acquired outfielder Casper Wells from the Toronto Blue Jays Monday for cash considerations. Wells, who was looked upon as a player with upside just a few short years ago is now with his third organization in just over two weeks. Don’t expect much from the 28-year old this season. Fantasy Ramifications: Wells needs to settle into a team that gives...

3 Stars of the game: Game 19

Power lead the Red Sox over the Oakland Athletics on a chilly night in Fenway. An early start (6:35) seemed like a good idea in afterthought seeing as the game still ended after 10pm. When the game ended it was a cold 41* in the park and many fans left early because of the weather. Those who remained were bundled up in their scarfs to watch the sox pull out the victory in the end...
