Rico Garcia, Spencer Patton, and Austin Pruitt added to the active roster by A

The Oakland Athletics made several notable roster moves ahead of their upcoming game against the Seattle Mariners. Rico Garcia, Spencer Patton, and Austin Pruitt have been selected to the active roster, while Adam Oller was optioned to Triple-A and Domingo Acevedo and Jeurys Familia were designated for assignment.

While the A’s struggling rotation has been a significant issue, the bullpen hasn’t fared much better, losing them close games in recent days. Currently, Oakland relievers rank dead last in the majors with a 7.07 ERA and -1.9 fWAR.

Garcia, who had an impressive run during the spring, recorded 19 strikeouts in 13 1/3 innings at Las Vegas. Despite concerns about walks, he will bring a dominant power arm to the mix. Patton, who struck out 10 in 8 1/3 innings for Las Vegas, allowed four runs. Pruitt appeared in 10 games at Triple-A and had a 2.30 ERA and a 3.76 FIP in 15 2/3 innings.

Familia was a late addition to Oakland’s roster but hasn’t offered much relief, allowing 12 earned runs in 12 2/3 innings across 14 appearances. Acevedo had a solid season in 2022 but has struggled this season, giving up 16 hits and 11 runs in just 9 1/3 innings. Oller started the season as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen but has allowed an alarming 29 hits and 22 earned runs in 19 2/3 innings.
