      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Optioned to Triple-A

      Daniel Mengden was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports.The move is something of a surprise, as Mengden seemed to have a good shot at the Oakland Athletics' fifth starter job. He could still win that job, as Oakland's unusual start to the season (an early two-game series against the Mariners in Japan on March 20-21 followed by six days off) means the team may simply want an extra hitter or reliever on the roster until a fifth starter is needed.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Impressive multi-inning outing

      Daniel Mengden (1-2) fired four scoreless innings in Tuesday's 4-1 Cactus League win over the Rangers, allowing an earned run on one hit and three walks. He struck out two.Mengden was highly effective in long relief, with the RBI double he surrendered to Jeff Mathis serving as the one major blemish on his performance. The 26-year-old right-hander was a relatively solid performer last season in an injury-ravaged rotation, generating a 7-6 record, 4.05 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 22 appearances (17 starts). With both Sean Manaea (shoulder) and Jharel Cotton (elbow) still out for the long term, Mengden profiles as the projected No. 4 or No. 5 starter for manager Bob Melvin to open 2019. The strong outing against the Rangers was a particularly welcome sight after Mengden allowed four earned runs over three innings in his first two spring appearances, both starts.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: No-decision Monday

      Daniel Mengden allowed three earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five across 5.1 innings Monday against the Mariners. He did not factor into the decision.He has pitched primarily as the long-man in bullpen games for the Oakland Athletics of late, though he earned the start on Monday. It remains to be seen how he'll be used in the final series of the season, but could start Sunday against the Angels in the final game of the regular season. He now carries a 4.05 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 115.2 innings.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Will start Monday

      Daniel Mengden is slated to start Monday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.Mengden has been working out of the bullpen behind opener Liam Hendriks of late, but he'll reclaim a rotation spot for the start of the Oakland Athletics' penultimate series of the season. The 25-year-old, who owns a 4.00 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 67 strikeouts through 110.1 frames in 2018, could make another start in the regular-season finale Sept. 30 against the Angels.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Fires four solid innings

      Daniel Mengden pitched four innings Tuesday, allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out three against the Oakland Athletics. He did not factor in the decision.Liam Hendriks served as the opener before Mengden took over in the second inning for another solid outing. This routine has been working of late, as an opener has pitched an inning before giving way to Mengden in each of his last three straight outings, and the 25-year-old is working to a 0.66 ERA and 0.44 WHIP over 13.2 innings in that span. He'll likely continue to be used in a similar capacity over the final two weeks of the season.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Slated to work as primary pitcher Tuesday

      Daniel Mengden is scheduled to work as the primary pitcher behind opener Liam Hendriks in Tuesday's game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.After making his first 16 appearances this season as a member of the Oakland rotation, Mengden has shifted to the bullpen since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville in late August. Despite the change in when he enters games, Mengden has remained a de facto starter, covering four-plus innings in three of his four relief outings. The Oakland Athletics aren't likely to deviate from how they use Mengden anytime soon, as he's been exceptional in the "primary pitcher" role with a 1.72 ERA and 0.89 WHIP in his four appearances.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Gets win with brilliant long-relief outing

      Daniel Mengden (7-6) picked up the win in Wednesday's 10-0 rout of the Orioles, allowing only one walk over five no-hit, scoreless innings while striking out three.Liam Hendriks gave Oakland a single shutout frame as the opener before handing the ball off to Mengden, who completely baffled Baltimore's hitters. The five innings were Mengden's most in an outing with the A's since June 17, and it's unclear at this point whether he'll shift into a real rotation role for the final couple of weeks of the season or remain as the long-relief anchor for bullpen days.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Set to follow opener Tuesday

      Daniel Mengden will follow opener Liam Hendriks against the Orioles on Wednesday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.Mengden will cover the bulk of Wednesday's innings. He's made three long-relief appearances this season, posting a 2.53 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB across 10.2 innings. It's unclear if he'll continue to work out of the bullpen down the stretch or if he'll rejoin the rotation at some point.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Tosses 4.2 scoreless innings

      Daniel Mengden pitched 4.2 innings without allowing a run while striking out three and allowing one hit in Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.Mengden didn't get the start in this one, as Liam Hendriks served as the opener, but he saw the bulk of the action Tuesday. He retired the first 10 batters he faced and only allowed a single hit -- a single -- against the final batter he faced with two outs in the sixth. It's unclear what Oakland's strategy will be with its starting rotation going forward, but Mengden could be in line to start sometime next week against the Orioles.

      Athletics' Daniel Mengden: Serving as primary pitcher Saturday

      Daniel Mengden won't start Saturday's game against the Mariners but will serve as the Oakland Athletics' primary pitcher after Liam Hendriks opens the game, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.Mengden was set to take over for Brett Anderson (forearm) in the starting rotation, but the Athletics will instead opt to use Hendriks as an opener. Mengden fired four scoreless innings while relieving Anderson on Monday and has a 4.47 ERA over 16 starts in the majors this season. It remains unclear if this is a one-time strategy for the Athletics or something they plan to utilize on a regular basis.
