Brasier re-signed with the Athletics on a minor league contract, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Brasier pitched out of Triple-A Nashville's bullpen for the duration of the 2016 season, posting a 3.56 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP while going 1-for-4 in save opportunities. He appeared in the big leagues back in 2013, but he likely will act as organizational depth for Oakland unless they run into massive bullpen issues.
The Angels transferred pitcher Ryan Brasier to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, clearing a 40-man roster spot for Brennan Boesch. Brasier showed up to camp this spring with forearm tightness, and it's clear the issue isn't a minor injury. He made seven appearances with the Angels last season, giving up two earned runs in nine innings while striking out seven and walking four.
The Angels officially placed pitchers Dane De La Rosa (forearm), Ryan Brasier (forearm), Sean Burnett (forearm) and Brian Moran (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday. All four moves were retroactive to March 21, according to the Orange County Register.
The Angels have recalled right-handed pitcher Ryan Brasier from Triple-A Salt Lake, MLB.com reports. Brasier posted a 4.13 ERA with 57 strikeouts in 56 2/3 innings for Salt Lake.
Angels reliever Ryan Brasier was optioned back to Triple-A Salt Lake Tuesday with Sean Burnett coming off the disabled list. Brasier was only in the majors for five days during this stint. He'll likely be back and forth from Salt Lake to the majors for most of the summer.
