The Oakland A’s have re-claimed 24 year old lefty reliever off of waivers from the Red Sox. He pitched in 51 games last season for the A’s and he was 1-2 with a 6.43 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He pitched 42 innings last season and he allowed 50 hits, walked 22 batters and whiffed 18. To make room on the roster for Marshall the A’s have designated righty reliever Jose Garcia for assignment. He pitched in 5 games in 2006 for the Marlins and he was 0-0 with a 4.91 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Incidentally, Garcia was the pitcher that bumped Marshall from the roster in the first place. He must not have progressed much in his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
