A’s Designate Graham Godfrey For Assignment

The Athletics have designated pitcher Graham Godfrey for assignment, the club announced. The move was made to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for infielder Stephen Drew, who was acquired Monday from the Diamondbacks.

After a cup of coffee with Oakland last season, Godfrey, 28, appeared in five games (four starts) this year for the A's, posting a 6.43 ERA in 21 innings pitched. The right-hander was a 34th-round selection by the Blue Jays in 2006, and was traded to the Athletics in the deal that sent Marco Scutaro to Toronto after the 2007 season.

I’m cool with that. I still don’t get what they see in Jim Miller though.

More surprised by actually sending Weeks down. He needed it but never thought they would do it.

I am glad let him get his bat back for 11 games and then when the roster expand we will use him again

I don’t know why but I like Godfrey… He has pitched well in AAA and seems to be a AAAA player. Just can’t translate the success to the bigs. Hope he clears waivers.
