On the season, Griffin boasts a 2.42 ERA and 3.50 K/BB ratio across eight starts.
Although the move can be considered precautionary in nature, the pace of Griffin's recovery bears monitoring. Fortunately for the A's, ace Brandon McCarthy may be ready to rejoin the rotation before Griffin's spot comes up again.
