Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Monday 2 September 2013 at 1:47 pm

The A’s have designated 30-year old righty swinging C/1B Luke Montz for assignment.  Montz played in 13 games earlier this year for the A’s and he was 5 for 28 (.179 avg, .593 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.  Montz also played in 33 games for the A’s in AAA-ball this year in which he was 30 for 122 (.246 avg, .893 OPS) with 17 runs scored, 9 homers and 29 RBIs.  The A’s should be o.k. without Montz the rest of the way in 2013.

UPDATE:  (9/3/2013) – The A’s have released Luke Montz.

The Oakland A’s DFA Pat Neshek

Blogged under Arrivals & Departures,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by joelapinski on Tuesday 27 August 2013 at 7:36 am

The A’s have designated 32-year old righty reliever Pat Neshek for assignment.  Neshek pitched in 41 games (0 starts) for the A’s this year and he was 2-1 with a 3.58 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP.  He pitched in 65 games (0 starts) in his two years with the A’s and he is 4-2 with a 2.83 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.  I think some team could claim Neshek off waivers as he has pitched pretty decent ball the last couple of years in Oakland.

UPDATE:  (8/28/2013) – Pat Neshek has been outrighted to AAA.
