A's send Godfrey down to Triple-A Sacramento

  •  

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have optioned pitcher Graham Godfrey to Triple-A Sacramento, one day after the right-hander lost his third consecutive start.

Godfrey, who won the fourth spot in Oakland's starting rotation following a close spring training duel with Tyson Ross, allowed four runs in five innings of Friday's 4-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians. More critically, Godfrey battled control problems all night and walked five batters.

Left-hander Pedro Figueroa was recalled from Sacramento to replace Godfrey. The 26-year-old allowed only two hits and had eight strikeouts in seven scoreless innings over five games with the River Cats.
