Athletics reorganize starting rotation
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

To better align their starting rotation for the end of the season, the Athletics have decided to push Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel back a day and move Scott Kazmir and Sonny Gray up a day. Kazmir will now start the first game of a three-game series against the Rangers Tuesday, followed by Samardzija and Gray. Hammel will start the first game of a three-game series against the Phillies Friday, followed by Jon Lester.

The move allows the Athletics to start Gray on the final day of the regular season rather than Hammel.

Jeff Samardzija can't win despite scoreless start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija picked up a no-decision Wednesday against the White Sox.

Samardzija allowed six hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out six and walked two during the outing. Samardzija nearly got himself in trouble during the first inning. A leadoff single was erased by a double play. Samardzija then gave up a double to Jose Abreu, but got through the inning without giving up a run. Another leadoff single was erased by a double play to start the third inning. Samardzija also put two men on in each the fifth and sixth inning, but worked out of trouble. 

The White Sox mounted a comeback in the bottom of the eighth, sticking Samardzija with the no-decision. He'll take on the Rangers in his next start.

Jeff Samardzija hit hard in loss No. 12
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija fell short of a quality start Friday against the Astros.

Samardzija gave up four runs on six hits over seven innings. He struck out nine and did not issue any walks during the outing. Home runs wound up being an issue for Samardzija. A solo home run to Jon Singleton started the scoring in the third inning. Chris Carter would add a run-scoring single in the fourth inning. With a man on in the sixth inning, Carter also blasted a two-run homer to left centeroff Samardzija.

With the loss, Samardzija dropped to 6-12 overall. He'll take on the White Sox in his next start.

Jeff Samardzija Ks nine, goes the distance in losing effort
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Athletics pitcher Jeff Samardzija was credited with a complete game but was pegged with a tough-luck loss Saturday against the Angels, dropping to 6-11 on the year. The right-hander permitted two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and no walks while striking out nine in eight innings of a 2-0 defeat.

Samardzija has allowed two earned runs or fewer in back-to-back starts. He owns a 3.14 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over 28 starts (183 2/3 innings). His next start will come Saturday at home against Houston.

Athletics swap Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Athletics have swapped Jeff Samardzija and Scott Kazmir for the upcoming series with the Angels, according to the Bay Area News Group.

Samardzija will now move up a day and pitch Saturday. Kazmir will be pushed back to Sunday. Both players will take on the Angels. It's unclear if Kazmir was moved in order to give him more rest following a poor start, or if the team just wanted to adjust the pitching matchups based on who the Angels were throwing.
