      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.

      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.
