Athletics' Zach Neal: Promoted to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neal had his contract selected from Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

Neal has produced well in a swingman role for the Sounds, posting a 3.89 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP, so he'll head up to the big leagues to replace recently injured Bobby Wahl (undisclosed). Neal could be an option for a spot start if Jesse Hahn (elbow) is unable to make his next start, otherwise he'll likely fill a long-relief role out of Oakland's bullpen.

Athletics' Zach Neal: Sent to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neal was reassigned to minor league camp Sunday.

Neal got into 24 games with the big club last season, posting a 4.24 ERA and 27 strikeouts over 70 innings. He fared better at Triple-A Nashville with a 3.21 ERA in just over 61 innings, so clearly the organization feels -- at least at this point in his career -- that the 28-year-old is best suited to further seasoning in the minors before he's ready for full-time duty with the A's.

Athletics' Zach Neal: Sent outright to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neal was sent outright to Triple-A Nashville on Wednesday.

Neal appeared in 24 games for Oakland last season, including six starts. He finished the season with a 4.24 major league ERA over 70 innings. While he only struck out 3.47 batters per nine innings, he posted a very strong .77 BB/9 walk rate. He figures to be back to the big league club at some point in 2017.

Zach Neal: DFA'd by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Neal was designated for assignment by the A's on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

With Trevor Plouffe added to the roster, Neal was the casualty. The 28-year-old righty made his major league debut last season, bouncing back and forth between Oakland and Triple-A Nashville. He finished the season with a 4.24 ERA over 70 innings with Oakland, but went 7-2 in 11 minor league starts. If he remains with the A's he will likely serve as organizational depth at Triple-A for most of 2017.

Athletics' Zach Neal: Throws quality start in no-decision against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Neal allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Angels.

Neal had one of his best starts of the year, lasting six innings for just the second time and recording his second quality start in six chances in the process. The five strikeouts marked a career high for the 27-year-old rookie. It's unclear if Ross Detwiler, Tuesday's original scheduled starter, will return to the rotation -- he was forced into action out of the bullpen in Monday's game, opening the door for Neal to start Tuesday.
