The Oakland A’s have placed righty starting pitcher Sean Gallagher on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder fatigue. Gallagher was the main piece of the Rich Harden trade and he has not looked too good for the A’s. He has started 7 games for the A’s this season and he was 1-2 with a 6.55 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP. Gallagher had trouble with his control as he walked 26 batters in only 34.1 innings for the A’s this season. Lefty Dana Eveland has been recalled from AAA ball to replace Gallagher in the starting rotation. Eveland started 22 games earlier this season for the A’s and he was 7-8 with a 4.46 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. Eveland also had a huge control problem with the A’s this season as he has walked 64 batters in only 125 innings. The A’s really hope that Eveland’s say in AAA has taught him to trust his stuff and throw strikes as he started 3 games there and was 3-0 with a 2.57 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Eveland whiffed 21 batters while walking only 4 in 21 innings in AAA ball.
