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 (triceps) is unable to make his next start, otherwise he'll likely fill a long-relief role out of Oakland's bullpen.
