A’s Claim Jeff Lyman

The A's claimed Jeff Lyman off waivers from the Braves, and optioned the right-hander to AA, according to an A's press release. Lyman, 23, was the Braves' second round selection in the 2005 draft. He had been pitching at Triple A Gwinnett for the Braves, where he posted a 4.72 ERA in 34.1 innings.

Control has been an issue for Lyman throughout his career and the first half of 2010 has been no exception. He posted 6.0 BB/9 with 6.8 K/9 at Triple A this year. Overall, Lyman has a 4.50 ERA in nearly 500 innings of minor league work.

Not a bad pick for the A’s. I wonder if he could still be starter material? Great Lymon taste makes it sprite!

Braves have a trade on the horizon? Seems like an odd move and they dont have anyone in the high minors that needs to be on the 40 man.

Best of luck, he was born in San Francisco so at least he gets to somewhat head home…
