  • Athletics pitcher Barry Zito will start Wednesday's game in place of Sonny Gray (hip), the Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher reports. Zito will reportedly be permitted to throw as many as 70 pitches, depending on how the game goes, after he made an abbreviated start Saturday. He represents a particularly low-upside fantasy option on the road against the Angels.

  • Athletics pitcher Barry Zito will start Saturday's game against the Giants, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. It will be a throwback outing, with Zito facing off against former teammate Tim Hudson. Manager Bob Melvin said Zito could maybe get up to 50 pitches Saturday, so he won't be a great option for fantasy owners chasing strikeouts and/or wins.

  • Athletics pitcher Barry Zito made his season debut on Sunday, allowing two earned runs in his one inning of work. The A's have indicated that Zito will only pitch out of the bullpen and while the team says he was called up to help the bullpen, it is pretty clear that they are giving the fans and Zito one last hurrah. Zito does not figure to have any fantasy value over the final two wee

  • Just-promoted veteran left-hander Barry Zito will only pitch in relief for the Athletics, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Zito's contract was selected from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday, but the veteran hurler will only be used out of the bullpen as the season comes to a close. The 37-year-old, who is expected to retire at season's end, has not been stretched out as a starter, but he could be used in long relief.

  • Veteran pitcher Barry Zito had his contract selected by the Athletics from Nashville on Wednesday. The team had previously claimed they would not promote him. But the 37 year old is having a solid year in Triple-A, posting a 3.46 ERA with 91 strikeouts in 138 innings. He could pitch against former teammate Tim Hudson in his final start. It is expected that Zito will retire after the season ends, though there has been no official announcement. He replaces Jesse Chavez on the active roster. Chavez went on the 60-day DL to make room for Zito.
