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.
