|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/13/15) The Athletics have announced that pitcher A.J. Griffin was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. Griffin, who has been working his way back from Tommy John surgery, had a rough rehab outing on Friday, allowing four home runs in 4 1/3 innings.
"He's not ready to be here right now, with it being his first outing of five innings and 80 pitches," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "So it's gonna take him some time to get to where we're looking to potentially bring him up here."
The team has not indicated whether they plan to bring Griffin up to the big leagues in the near future. To clear room on the 40-man roster, reliever Sean Doolittle was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

|(6/9/15) Athletics right-hander A.J. Griffin will make his next rehab start on Friday with Triple-A Nashville. Griffin, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, has already made two scoreless rehab starts for Class A.

Athletics' Griffin tosses four scoreless innings in rehab start Sunday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/7/15) Athletics pitcher A.J. Griffin did not allow a run over four innings of work during a rehab start Sunday for the team's Class A affiliate.
Griffin threw 39 of his 56 pitches for strikes. He struck out five and walked one while only allowing one hit during the outing. He has not pitched since 2013 after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
|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.
