"We’re going to give Jim a break from closing," Melvin told reporters before Thursday's game against the Twins. "There’s no timetable, and I’m not going to say that I’ll be looking to give him a soft landing. We just want to let him get straightened out. And we have plenty of guys to do this."

Potential options to close out games for the A's include Luke Gregerson, Sean Doolittle, Ryan Cook and Dan Otero.

A's put in claim for Dan Otero


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
