  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Records third hold

    Moll was credited with his third hold in a win over the Orioles on Thursday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during which he issued a walk and recorded a strikeout.

    The left-hander extended his season-opening scoreless streak to six appearances and surrendered only his second hit of the season. Moll's early success and workload have given his early-season value a nice boost in formats that count holds, and he should continue to be relied on consistently as a trusted left-handed bullpen asset.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Grabs first hold

    Moll recorded his first hold in a win over the Phillies on Sunday, firing a perfect sixth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.

    Moll carried over the momentum he'd generated during an impressive Cactus League stint into his first appearance of the regular season, breezing through his one frame Sunday on 14 pitches. The 30-year-old southpaw also provided encouraging results last season during a brief eight-appearance sample with the big-league club, recording a 3.48 ERA across 10.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Impresses during spring

    Moll finished Cactus League play with a 1.59 ERA and 9:0 K:BB across 5.2 innings over six appearances.

    The southpaw provided encouraging results in preparation for what Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports could be a fluid role in front of established closer Lou Trivino to start the season. Moll will be one of three southpaws in Oakland's bullpen to start the 2022 campaign -- Kirby Snead and A.J. Puk being the other two -- and he'll look to build on a 2021 big-league stint during which he posted a 3.48 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across 10.1 innings over eight appearances.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Back with team

    The Athletics activated Moll from the paternity list Sunday.

    The lefty rejoins Oakland's bullpen after being on paternity leave since Thursday. He figures to pitch in low-leverage situations during the last week of the regular season.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Placed on paternity list

    Moll was placed on the paternity list Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Moll made a pair of relief appearances early this week and struck out three in three scoreless innings. He'll be away from the team for up to three games following the birth of his child.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Recalled by Oakland

    Moll was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.

    Moll will take the roster spot left vacant by Daulton Jefferies, who landed on the injured list with an elbow issue. Jefferies had been scheduled to start Saturday against the Angels, so Moll could potentially be involved right away if Oakland elects to go with a bullpen game.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Optioned to Triple-A

    Moll was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    He has not allowed a run across four appearances in the majors this season, sporting a 4:4 K:BB in 4.2 innings. Frankie Montas (visa issues) was activated from the restricted list in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Rejoins big-league club

    Moll was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.

    The 29-year-old has been in the minors since later July and will rejoin the A's with Frankie Montas (visa issues) heading to the restricted list. Moll hasn't given up a run in 2.2 big-league innings this season and should fill a low-leverage role out of the bullpen.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Optioned to minors

    The Athletics optioned Moll to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    The lefty has appeared in three games for the Athletics, throwing 2.2 scoreless frames with two strikeouts and three walks. Moll returns to the minors to clear a spot for the newly acquired Andrew Chafin, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him back with the big-league club at some point this season.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Solid over first two appearances

    Moll has fired two scoreless innings over his first two appearances with the Athletics since being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on July 3.

    The 29-year-old has given up one hit and two walks over that span without recording any strikeouts, but Moll's second big-league stint has certainly started better than his initial one with Oakland back in 2017, when he pitched to a 10.80 ERA and 2.40 WHIP across 6.2 innings. Moll is likely to remain in low-leverage scenarios for the time being.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Traded to Athletics

    Moll was traded from the Diamondbacks to the Athletics on Friday in exchange for cash considerations.

    Moll's only major-league appearances came with the Athletics in 2017, and he'll return to the organization after he spent the start of the 2021 campaign with Triple-A Reno. The southpaw has made 21 relief appearances in the minors to begin the year, and he's recorded a 5.82 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 21.2 innings. He's been assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

  • Athletics' Sam Moll: Called up by Athletics

    The Athletics selected Moll's contract from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.

    He joins the big-league club just a day after being acquired from the Diamondbacks organization. Moll will join the bullpen as a replacement for Domingo Acevedo, who was optioned in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Sam Moll: Heads to minor-league camp

    The Diamondbacks reassigned Moll to their minor-league camp Sunday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    Moll is expected to slot into the Triple-A Reno bullpen to begin the 2021 campaign. The 29-year-old lefty hasn't appeared in the majors since 2017, when he made 11 appearances out of the Oakland bullpen.

  • Diamondbacks' Sam Moll: Gets minors deal with Diamondbacks

    Moll signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Moll has thrown just 6.2 career innings at the highest level, all of which came in 2017 with Oakland. The lefty allowed eight runs in that short sample. giving him a career 10.80 ERA, and his 4.19 ERA in 131 career Triple-A innings hardly suggests he's on the verge of a breakout.

  • Blue Jays' Sam Moll: Heads to Triple-A

    Moll cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

    Moll was designated for assignment Thursday after failing to earn an Opening Day roster spot with the Blue Jays. The 26-year-old allowed eight earned runs on 13 hits over 6.2 innings during a brief stint on Oakland's 25-man roster last season.

  • Blue Jays' Sam Moll: DFA'd by Toronto

    The Blue Jays designated Moll for assignment Thursday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    It's the fourth time since November that Moll has been dropped from a team's 40-man roster, as the Athletics, Pirates and Mariners had previously exposed the left-hander to waivers. Unless the Blue Jays are able to execute a trade, Moll will likely hit the waiver wire again, though it's unclear if another team will have interest in scooping him up and adding him to the 40-man roster after he was lit up for six runs (five earned) and posted a 0:3 K:BB in 4.1 innings during spring training.

  • Blue Jays' Sam Moll: Claimed by Blue Jays

    Moll was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Saturday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    Moll had already been optioned out of the Mariners' major-league camp before being placed on waivers and scooped up by Toronto. The 26-year-old southpaw logged 6.2 innings across 11 appearances for the A's last season, posting a 10.80 ERA, 2.40 WHIP and 7:3 K:BB. He'll compete for an Opening Day roster spot in the Blue Jays' bullpen.

  • Mariners' Sam Moll: Optioned to minors

    The Mariners optioned Moll to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Moll debuted in the majors with the Athletics as a September callup last season, yielding eight runs on 13 hits and three walks over 6.2 innings. Those poor numbers likely put him on the outside looking in for a bullpen role with the Mariners entering the spring, so it's not surprising that he was an early cut for the team. Expect Moll to spend much of the 2018 campaign as a key member of the Tacoma bullpen.

  • Mariners' Sam Moll: Claimed by Mariners

    Moll was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Thursday.

    Moll will join his third team of the offseason after being designated for assignment by the Athletics and now the Pirates. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut in 2017, appearing in 11 games and compiling a 10.80 ERA and 2.40 WHIP across 6.2 innings. He'll likely serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Mariners next season.

  • Pirates' Sam Moll: Claimed by Pirates

    Moll was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

    Moll, who was designated for assignment by the A's last week, made his major-league debut in 2017. The lefty appeared in 11 games for the big club, but struggled to a 10.80 ERA and 2.40 WHIP across just 6.2 innings. He's compiled a respectable 3.35 ERA and 8.4 K/9 across 215 minor-league innings (five seasons) and will likely serve as organizational bullpen depth for the Pirates.
