Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Signs minor league deal with Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin (shoulder) signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers on Monday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Griffin has not pitched in the majors since 2013 due to Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow in April of 2014. He appeared in only four games for the Athletics' minor league system in 2015 before being DFA'd and subsequently released last month. The 27-year-old will look to prove he's ready to get back on track after the injury, but at this point he's a bit of a wild card and it's unclear how realistic his chances of cracking the major league roster might be.

A.J. Griffin: Released by A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin was released by the A's on Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Griffin, who underwent Tommy John surgery in April of 2014, appeared in just four games for the A's minor-league affiliates this season, before finding the sidelines due to a shoulder strain. The 27-year-old did post multiple positive seasons with Oakland in 2012 and 2013, so it seems likely he could sign a minor league contract with another team provided he's healthy, but it's unlikely Griffin will provide much at the major-league level this season.

Athletics' A.J. Griffin: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin was designated for assignment Friday.

Griffin made just four appearances in 2015 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in April of 2014 before suffering a shoulder strain that sidelined him for the remainder of the year. With the signing of Rich Hill, the club needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, so it appears Griffin will start the season in the minors if healthy.

A's pitcher A.J. Griffin activated from DL, optioned to Triple-A
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Athletics have announced that pitcher A.J. Griffin was activated from the disabled list and optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Saturday. Griffin, who has been working his way back from Tommy John surgery, had a rough rehab outing on Friday, allowing four home runs in 4 1/3 innings. 

"He's not ready to be here right now, with it being his first outing of five innings and 80 pitches," manager Bob Melvin said, per MLB.com. "So it's gonna take him some time to get to where we're looking to potentially bring him up here."

The team has not indicated whether they plan to bring Griffin up to the big leagues in the near future. To clear room on the 40-man roster, reliever Sean Doolittle was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
