Athletics Designate Danny Farquhar For Assignment

The Athletics announced that they have designated right-hander Danny Farquhar for assignment.  The move will allow the club to promote fellow righty  A.J. Griffin from Triple-A Sacramento.

Farquhar, 25, was claimed off of waivers by Oakland on June 9th after he was let go by the Blue Jays.  The pitcher posted a 2.97 ERA with 9.8 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9 in 20 Double-A appearances for Toronto's affiliate and pitched eight innings for the A's Triple-A squad this year.

    Watch the Jays trade for him for the 43784732462378th time this season.

    We need Roman Colon, he could start for us. Colon, McCarthy, Anderson, Braden are all hurt

    Farquhar must be getting tired of being bounced between Toronto and Oakland

      As long as the checks don’t bounce he won’t mind. Sure beats working for a living.

    I’d like to see the Stros take a flyer on him. Its not like our Major League club is doing much that is worth merit and we need surplus bullpen arms the way Brad Mills uses them.

    Bartolo was hurt. Roman is healthy
