Athletics' John Axford: Falters in Sunday outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up an earned run on two hits and a walk over one-third of an inning in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Mariners.

Axford gave up an RBI single to Carlos Ruiz before being relieved by Ryan Madson and closed out the first half on a downswing, having allowed an earned run in each of his last four appearances. The 34-year-old hasn't been able to remain effective for an extended stretch save for a five-appearance scoreless streak in early June, leading to a 6.30 ERA and 2.00 WHIP that both represent career highs.

Athletics' John Axford: Control problems in Monday's outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up an earned run on four walks over one inning in Monday's 7-2 loss to the White Sox. He struck out two.

The veteran reliever had plenty of trouble finding the plate, working up to 33 pitches in his sole inning of work and allowing a run by issuing a bases-loaded walk to Adam Engel. Axford has been inconsistent over his last several outings, giving up an earned run in three straight and seven runs overall in his last nine trips to the mound. Location has been a recurring issue as well, as he's now issued 14 walks in 19.2 innings this season.

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.
