by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford will play for Team Canada in this year's WBC, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

The veteran reliever, who compiled 15 holds and three saves (in 10 chances) along with a 6-4 record and 3.97 ERA across 65.2 innings in 2016, will be part of a pitching staff that will include fellow major leaguers Andrew Albers and Kevin Chapman.

Athletics' John Axford: Picks up second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford notched only his second save of the season Wednesday against the Orioles, striking out one and allowing one hit in a scoreless ninth.

Ryan Madson pitched Monday and Tuesday, so he was unavailable, leaving Axford a rare save chance. He's the clear No. 2 man in the Oakland bullpen while Sean Doolittle (shoulder) remains on the DL.

Athletics' John Axford: X-rays negative on foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays on John Axford 's left foot came back negative after being hit by a liner from Xander Bogaerts on Monday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Axford actually remained in the game to pitch a full inning where he gave up four earned runs on two hits. While there still may be lingering soreness, it doesn't appear that Axford will need a day off to rest his ailing foot.
