Athletics' John Axford: Touched up for homer in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up a solo home run and issued a walk over an inning in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Astros.

The veteran reliever yielded a 385-foot shot to George Springer in the eighth, the second homer he's surrendered over his last two appearances. Axford has given up four earned runs over his last three trips to the mound and has had a rough June overall, as evidenced by the 6.23 ERA he's compiled across 8.2 innings.

Athletics' John Axford: Picks up first hold of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was credited with his first hold in Monday's 5-3 win over the Blue Jays, firing a scoreless seventh inning in which he gave up a hit and recorded a strikeout.

The 34-year-old appears to be settling in after getting a late start to his season due to a shoulder injury and then allowing a total of seven runs (six earned) in his first five outings. Axford has turned in scoreless one-inning efforts in his last two trips to the mound, bringing his ERA down from 11.57 to 8.10 in the process. The veteran right-hander figures to continue receiving consistent use, given his track record and experience as a sixth-and-seventh-inning option.

Athletics' John Axford: Touched up for pair of runs Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up two earned runs on two hits and two walks over an inning in Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Yankees. He also recorded a strikeout.

The veteran reliever has gotten frequent use since making his 2017 debut on May 21, having already worked 4.1 innings across four appearances. It hasn't exactly been smooth, as Axford has given up at least one earned run in three of those outings, allowing seven hits and four earned runs overall. His ERA and WHIP now stand at an unsightly 8.31 and 2.08, respectively, but manager Bob Melvin figures to continue giving the 34-year-old righty regular opportunities to work through his early struggles.

Athletics' John Axford: Gives up earned run in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) gave up an earned run on a hit over one inning in Sunday's 12-3 loss to the Red Sox.

Axford finally made his 2017 debut, giving up an RBI groundout to Deven Marrero over his one inning but looking sharp otherwise. The veteran right-hander displayed solid control, firing 16 of 23 pitches for strikes. A healthy and effective Axford would be an excellent addition to Oakland's relief corps, considering he turned in 15 holds over 68 appearances in his first Athletics season in 2016.

Athletics' John Axford: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Saturday.

The reliever has been out since early April with a shoulder strain, but progressed steadily through three rehab appearances and appears ready to get back to regular action. Axford will likely be eased into a late-inning setup man role after posting a sluggish 3.97 ERA over 68 appearances last season, though could make a push for a bigger role with some strong performances. Preferred closer Santiago Casilla has already blown two saves while racking up a 4.96 ERA over 17 appearances.
