      Fernando Abad: Signs minor-league deal with Twins

      Abad signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Thursday, which includes an invite to spring training. The 30-year-old southpaw has a 3.42 ERA in 205 innings as a reliever, and could join the big league club as a lefty specialist at some point in 2016.

      Fernando Abad: Elects free agency

      Abad declined his outright assignment and elected free agency Friday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. The A's needed to clear space on the 40-man roster earlier in the offseason, and Abad was a casualty as he was designated for assignment. The lefty has decided to test the waters on the open market instead where he should command some interest as a southpaw that can get out hitters from both sides of the plate.

      Athletics' Fernando Abad: Cleared waivers

      Abad cleared waivers Monday and was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville. Abad was a casualty of the team needing space on the 40-man roster, as he was designated for assignment earlier in the month, but the other 29 clubs apparently weren't interested in the left-hander. He spent the entire season in the majors in 2015 but could begin next year in the minors.

      Athletics' Fernando Abad: Designated for assignment

      Abad was designated for assignment Friday. Abad got off to a very rocky start to the 2015 season, but eventually settled in and posted a 4.15 ERA and 45 strikeouts in 47.2 innings. The move was a procedural one to clear space on the team's 40-man roster, but Abad should see time in the majors next season wherever he plays.

      Athletics LHP Fernando Abad very bad this season

      The recent struggles of Athletics reliever Fernando Abad might not be so troublesome if not for one factor. That is, he's their lone lefty out of the bullpen. His problems are making it difficult for Bob Melvin to strategize. Abad faced three batters in the Tuesday night loss to Houston and allowed home runs to left-handed hitters Colby Rasmus and Jason Castro. It's not what Melvin had in mind. But then, he's grown accustomed to it - Abad owns a 7.36 ERA and has yielded 14 hits in 11 innings. "He's our only lefty. We've got to figure out how to use him," Melvin told MLB.com. "The last couple times, he seemed to be pretty good, like what we saw last year, and the pitch to Rasmus, it's 0-2, he's trying to go away, it looked like he missed the entire other side of the plate." Abad, who has given up seven hits in 18 at-bats to first hitters he's faced, said his delivery is fine, but complained about his location.

Among the players that have already had it are Sonny Gray, Fernando Abad, Stephen Vogt and Ike Davis. Kendall Graveman was fighting the illness when he made his first start, Melvin said. Graveman gave up seven earned runs in three and a third innings.

      Fernando Abad ejected for being a bad boy

      Athletics pitcher Fernando Abad was ejected Sunday after benches cleared in the eighth. Abad came on in relief of Scott Kazmir, and threw two pitches inside to third baseman Manny Machado. Machado nearly got into a dustup with third baseman Josh Donaldson Saturday, so the pitch location was a bit suspicious. On the second pitch, Machado lost control of the bat, which flew out toward third. That caused the benches to clear. Both Machado and Abad were immediately ejected.
