Cessa (0-1) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts over four innings in a loss Sunday to the Athletics.

Cessa was undone by a big third inning, which included a two-run double from Chad Pinder and a two-run homer from Khris Davis. He was far from lights-out over his time at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (4.15 ERA, 1.35 WHIP), and it shouldn't be surprising that major-league hitters were able to touch him up. Expect Cessa to be demoted once CC Sabathia (hamstring) is ready to return.
