If Mark Kotsay passes his physical tomorrow he will become a member of the Atlanta Braves. In return, the A’s will receive 24-year old righty reliever Joey Devine. Devine was once thought highly enough in Atlanta that he was considered to be the stopper of the future…but it just didn’t pan out there. Devine pitched in 10 games last season for the Braves and he was 1-0 with a 1.08 ERA and a 1.80 WHIP. Devine has now pitched in 25 games in his major league career and he is 1-1 with a 6.86 ERA and a 2.19 WHIP. The A’s continue to dismantle their team which can’t make the fan base to happy.
