The Oakland Athletics are getting great work out of John Axford

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Tuesday 26 April 2016 at 11:03 am

The Oakland A’s were sneaky in how they re-built the back end of their bullpen over the winter by locking up hard throwing ex-closers.  One of them was 33-year old righty reliever John Axford.  Axford pitched in 60 games (0 starts) for the Colorado Rockies last year and he was 4-5 with 25 saves, a 4.20 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP.  Axford has now pitched in 9 games (0 starts) for the A’s so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP.  He has only given up 8 hits and he has yet to walk a batter while whiffing 5 in his first 10 innings with the A’s.  He is looking great so far for the A’s!
