      Indians' Dan Otero: Dealt to Indians

      Otero was acquired by the Indians on Friday for cash considerations, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Otero had been DFA'd by Philadelphia within the last week, but the Phillies front office found a trade partner in the Indians on Friday. The veteran reliever struggled to a 6.75 ERA last season, but his career mark of 3.46 indicates that his 2015 campaign could have been an aberration.

      A's recall RP Arnold Leon from Triple-A; Dan Otero sent down

      The Athletics have recalled right-handed reliever Arnold Leon from Triple-A Nashville. Leon has made seven appearances for the A's across several trips between the big leagues and Triple-A. In those seven games, Leon owns a 3.72 ERA over 9 2/3 innings. His most recent stay with the A's lasted all of one day. But now, the team intends on keeping him around a little while longer. "We wanted to take a harder look at Arnold," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "He's been up here a couple times, hasn't really gotten an opportunity to be in a prominent role. It's just been one-inning stints for the most part." He is taking the roster spot of Dan Otero, who was optioned to Triple-A on Monday. Otero has pitched frequently over the last few weeks, throwing 8 1/3 innings over his last six appearances. So it appears Oakland is making a move to get a fresh arm in the bullpen.

According to Craig Mish of Sirius XM, he'll be the first switch-pitcher in the majors since 1900. This season, he owns a stellar 1.36 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and 33:13 K:BB ratio over 33 innings of relief for the Sounds. Crisp has been sidelined since May 19 with a lingering neck issue. He received an epidural in his neck on Monday, and is expected to be shut down for the next month.

      Athletics' Dan Otero earns win Monday with four scoreless innings

      Athletics relief pitcher Dan Otero came up big for his team Monday, giving up just one hit in four scoreless innings of relief while striking out four and walking none to earn the win in his team's 6-3 victory over the Angels. Otero (1-1) combined with Evan Scribner and Tyler Clippard to throw six scoreless innings of one-hit ball after starter Kendall Graveman lasted just three innings. "That's big," Melvin said after the game, per MLB.com. "Confidence for a lot of guys, too. You're talking about Otero getting a little confidence back, Scribner used in a little different role and getting three key outs and finally getting to Clippard in a save situation. We hadn't been able to do that this year." Otero came into Monday's game with a 6.75 ERA in four innings over five appearances. He said catcher Stephen Vogt spotted something with his left shoulder in his delivery last week, and he's been working to adjust. "I was just kind of turning my left shoulder in a little bit," he said. "Getting a little too rotational. That's something I've been cognizant of throwing in the outfield, warming up every day. Noticed it tonight it was good, and it helps all my other pitches when I can stay in line, can stay through the catcher instead of spinning off to the first baseman." Otero has now posted a 3.38 ERA and 6:0 K:BB ratio in eight innings.
