Righthander Will Harris has been claimed off of waivers by the Diamondbacks, the Athletics tweeted. Harris was waived to make room for starter Bartolo Colon, who the A's have reinstated from the suspended list. As expected, Dan Straily was optioned to Triple-A to clear a rotation spot for Colon, the team also announced on Twitter.
Oakland claimed Harris off of waivers from the Rockies just three days ago. As MLBTR's Steve Adams explained, Harris's high strikeout rate is intriguing, in spite of his shaky big league track record.
