Athletics RHP A.J. Griffin ramping up rehab work
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Athletics starter A.J. Griffin has been sidelined all with elbow and shoulder issues, but he is slowly ramping up his comeback.
Griffin is set to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, per MLB.com. He could throw a two-inning simulated game Tuesday and begin a rehab assignment shortly after that if all goes well.
The right-hander was a mainstay in the Oakland rotation in 2012 and 2013 before injuries struck. He went 21-11 with a 3.60 ERA in those seasons combined.

|(5/7/15) Athletics starting pitcher A.J. Griffin (elbow) will throw a three-inning simulated game Thursday, per the San Francisco Chronicle. Griffin is getting closer to beginning a rehab assignment.
|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.
