A's promote Venditte, demote Otero; move Crisp to 60-day DL
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(6/5/15) The Athletics officially selected the contract of switch-pitcher Pat Venditte from Triple-A Nashville and optioned Dan Otero to Nashville. The club also transferred Coco Crisp (neck) to the 60-day disabled list, per the team's official website.
Venditte, 29, has been in the minors for eight years without getting the call. According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, he'll be the first switch-pitcher in the majors since 1900. This season, he owns a stellar 1.36 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB ratio over 33 innings of relief for the Sounds.
Crisp has been sidelined since May 19 with a lingering neck issue. He received an epidural in his neck on Monday, and is expected to be shut down for the next month.
Dan Otero's iron man streak to end for Athletics on Monday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/4/15) Athletics reliever Dan Otero has pitched in five games in five days, setting a career high.
"I’d never pitched in four games in four days before this," Otero said, per the Inside the A's blog. "But really, I feel good,"
Otero said he would be able to pitch to a batter or two in Monday's game, but manager Bob Melvin put a stop to that talk, saying that Otero's streak was coming to an end.
Athletics' Dan Otero earns win Monday with four scoreless innings
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Athletics relief pitcher Dan Otero came up big for his team Monday, giving up just one hit in four scoreless innings of relief while striking out four and walking none to earn the win in his team's 6-3 victory over the Angels.
Otero (1-1) combined with Evan Scribner and Tyler Clippard to throw six scoreless innings of one-hit ball after starter Kendall Graveman lasted just three innings.
"That's big," Melvin said after the game, per MLB.com. "Confidence for a lot of guys, too. You're talking about Otero getting a little confidence back, Scribner used in a little different role and getting three key outs and finally getting to Clippard in a save situation. We hadn't been able to do that this year."
Otero came into Monday's game with a 6.75 ERA in four innings over five appearances. He said catcher Stephen Vogt spotted something with his left shoulder in his delivery last week, and he's been working to adjust.
"I was just kind of turning my left shoulder in a little bit," he said. "Getting a little too rotational. That's something I've been cognizant of throwing in the outfield, warming up every day. Noticed it tonight it was good, and it helps all my other pitches when I can stay in line, can stay through the catcher instead of spinning off to the first baseman."
Otero has now posted a 3.38 ERA and 6:0 K:BB ratio in eight innings.
Athletics' Dan Otero blows save in eighth
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Athletics reliever Dan Otero got charged with a blown save in the eighth inning of an 11-inning loss to Seattle.
Otero entered with two outs in the eighth and runners on second and third, with the A's defending a 2-1 lead.
Nelson Cruz hit the third pitch Otero threw for a three-run homer to left.
''Once it got to 1-1, I was going to try and come in on him but it stayed right there,'' Otero said. ''It wasn't a terrible pitch, but unfortunately in that situation it turned out that way.''
Otero was charged with one run in a third of an inning. His ERA for the season stands at 6.75.
