A’s Designate Jerry Blevins For Assignment

The Athletics have designated lefty Jerry Blevins for assignment, tweets Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.

As with Blevins' previous three DFAs this season, he is removed from Oakland's 25-man roster but remains on its 40-man, so the move is procedural and does not expose him to other teams. Blevins was removed from the active roster to make room for Graham Godfrey, who was slated to start Game 2 of the Athletics' doubleheader in Boston.

Blevins has shuttled between Oakland and the minors for parts of five seasons, posting a 4.00 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 8.5 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9.
