A.J. GRIFFIN RUMORS & GOSSIP
Spring training has been relatively drama-free for the Oakland A's thus far, but the storyline took a dramatic turn on Friday, as the team announced that both Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin are headed to the doctor with arm soreness. With the start of the season two weeks away, the A's could be without two of their top five starters on Opening Day.
The Oakland Athletics were all set to start the 2014 MLB season with a starting rotation of Jarrod Parker, Scott Kazmir, Sonny Gray, Dan Straily and A.J. Griffin. It looks like Griffin and Parker will start the season on the DL now. A.J. has some elbow issues, while Jarrod is experiencing forearm tightness. They combined for 397 innings pitched last year, and without Bartolo...
Whether or not you want to hear about Major League Baseball players’ weight and fitness this time of year, most of them will insist that it is important to how well they hold up over the length of a long 162 game season.

Despite getting hurt late last season, A.J. Griffin has already shown he can handle a heavy workload for the Oakland Athletics.
Now, he wants to keep pitching deep into October.
The 26-year-old right-hander threw 200 innings in 2013, his first full season in the majors. He went 14-10 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 32 starts as Oakland won its second straight AL West title.

Now that he's gotten his first full season in the big leagues under his belt, the repeat AL West champions expect the 25-year-old right-hander to make even...

American League fans who do not know who A.J. Griffin is should probably do some homework.
Griffin is that Oakland A's starter with the flowing golden locks who fits in more on the set of Anchorman than on a baseball field. However, Griffin is the key to the Oakland rotation and will prove his worth once the playoffs roll around.
The A's rotation really does lack an ace...
There is no hitting A.J. Griffin this season. The 24-year-old rookie continued his remarkable run through the American League Wednesday night as he stifled the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to the tune of eight shutout innings. The swiftly rising righty struck out six Angles against six hits and no walks. The dominant outing lowered Griffin’s ERA to 1.94 to go with an splendid...
A.J. Griffin is 6-0 to start his career, the best start in Oakland history. But even though manager Bob Melvin said that he didn't even know who Griffin was during the spring -- the right-hander was not in big-league camp -- Griffin's strong performances aren't unusual for the A's. That's just what Oakland's rookie starters do, and they've put on a...
