The A’s have designated 25-year old righty reliever Danny Farquhar for assignment. He pitched in 5 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball for the A’s and he was 1-2 with a 10.12 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP. Farquhar has now pitched in 25 games (0 starts) in AA+AAA-ball for the Blue Jays and A’s in which he is 1-3 with 1 save, a 4.46 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. It will be interesting to see if Farquhar clears waivers.
UPDATE: (6/26/2012) - The New York Yankees have claimed Danny Farquhar off waivers.
