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.

Athletics' John Axford: To be activated over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) will be activated Saturday or Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports Friday.

Axford has been solid in three rehab appearances over the course of the week, so now it just comes down to when it will be convenient for the Athletics to make the roster move to get him back to the majors. They may choose to give Axford a couple days to rest, so don't be surprised if they wait until Sunday to officially activate the reliever.

Athletics' John Axford: Effective in Thursday rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) fired a scoreless inning for Triple-A Nashville in Thursday's 13-3 win over Fresno, recording a strikeout.

Axford has looked excellent in three rehab appearances, giving up just two hits over 3.1 scoreless innings across three appearances while notching four strikeouts. The 34-year-old is slated to return to the big-league club over the weekend, and while that remains to officially be confirmed, he certainly appears to be on the right track if his performances with the Sounds are any indication.

Athletics' John Axford: Slated for an additional rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford (shoulder) is scheduled to appear in two more minor-league rehab games before the Athletics consider activating him from the disabled list, Joe Stiglich of NBC Sports California reports.

Axford's Triple-A rehab appearances are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday. If he's able to breeze through those with no setbacks, it's conceivable that the hurler will be able to rejoin the Athletics' bullpen as soon as this weekend.
