The Oakland A’s have placed All-Star starting pitcher Justin Duchscherer on the 15-day disabled list with a hip injury. This will really send the Oakland A’s further down into the toilet as Duchscherer has been the best pitcher on the A’s pitching staff this season. He has started 22 games for the A’s this season and he is 10-8 with a 2.54 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. The A’s will likely move lefty Dan Meyer into the starting rotation to replace Duchscherer. Meyer has pitched in 6 games (1 start) for the A’s this season and he is 0-1 with a 5.52 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.
