Athletics pitcher A.J. Griffin throws bullpen session Friday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Athletics pitcher A.J. Griffin was able to throw 50-plus pitches in a bullpen session Friday, reports MLB.com.
Manager Bob Melvin said all of his pitches were looking great. Griffin, who is still recovering from Tommy John surgery, is continuing to rehab in hopes of joining the team once the regular season begins. He went 14-10 in 2014 with a 3.83 ERA and 171 strikeouts in 200 innings pitched.
|2014 summary: A.J. Griffin began the season on the disabled list, but by the end of April, he had been knocked out for the entire season, having undergone Tommy John surgery.|
Playing time status: Griffin figures to miss at least one month of the season, but he should be ready to join the Athletics' rotation at some point during 2015.
2015 outlook: The 2013 campaign -- Griffin's first full season in the majors -- was a struggle, as he allowed a whopping 36 home runs, but even so, he was useful to owners needing help in the WHIP and wins categories. Coming off surgery, expectations should be diminished for Griffin, but he is worth drafting in AL-only leagues and is likely worth a waiver pickup in deeper mixed leagues once he is close to returning.
