Athletics Designate Chad Gaudin For Assignment

The Athletics have designated Chad Gaudin for assignment, reports Jane Lee of MLB.com (via Twitter).

The DFA is part of a series of moves for the Athletics, who placed Justin Duchscherer on the disabled list and optioned Josh Donaldson to the minors. The team also activated Kurt Suzuki from the DL, promoted Henry Rodriguez and selected Cedrick Bowers.

Gaudin signed with the Athletics in late March, and has appeared in 12 games for Oakland this season. Although he posted solid rates of 10.4 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9, he was hit hard, allowing 17 runs in 17.1 IP (8.83 ERA).

If I’m the Mets, I claim him and put him in the rotation. In that park with his K numbers in the NL, he could work at the back of a rotation.

Agreed. Especially since every starter but Santana has pitched like crap in this Marlins series. There’s no reason not to try to get him.

Plus you know he can pitch in NY, as he did pretty well for the Yankees during the 2nd half of last year. Gaudin has talent enough to be a decent 5th guy, I’m surprised he allowed so many runs this early in the season.
