The Oakland A’s have called up 30-year old righty swinging C/1B/OF Matt McBride. McBride played in 11 games in AAA-ball for the A’s this year and he was 6 for 32 (.188 avg, .641 OPS) with 4 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs. McBride has played in 72 games in his first three years in the show and he is 30 of 151 (.199 avg, .532 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 4 homers and 17 RBIs. He has also whiffed 33 times against only 3 walks so far in the majors. The A’s have sent down 27-year old righty reliever Andrew Triggs to make room for McBride on the roster. Triggs pitched in 1 game for the A’s working a scoreless inning allowing no baserunners and whiffing one batter.
UPDATE: (4/29/2016) – The A’s have sent back Matt McBride to AAA. He didn’t play for the A’s this time around and they have called Andrew Triggs back up.
