Athletics Designate Andrew Werner For Assignment

The A's have designated left-hander Andrew Werner for assignment in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for Scott Kazmir, the team announced on Twitter.

Werner, 26, was one of two players received by the A's in their trade of Tyson Ross to the Padres. The University of Indianapolis product spent the entire season in Triple-A this season and struggled to the tune of a 5.78 ERA with 6.1 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. Right-handed batters tagged him for a .901 OPS, but he was able to hold lefties in check reasonably well, limiting them to a more respectable .688 OPS in 2013.
