  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Converts fifth save

    Trivino walked one and struck out one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in Friday's 3-1 win over the Mariners.

    Trivino has found a little stability lately, converting saves in each of his last three appearances. His scoreless streak is up to 5.2 innings, a span in which he's posted an 8:3 K:BB. Overall, he's at a 6.85 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB with five saves, a blown save, a hold and a 1-5 record across 22.1 innings. Trivino appears to be the favorite for saves among Athletics relievers, but this bullpen could continue to be tricky to predict, especially once Dany Jimenez (shoulder) is ready to return.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Picks up save

    Trivino picked up the save Sunday against Kansas City, allowing no runs on two hits while striking out one and walking none over one inning.

    Just a day after earning a two-out save, Trivino was able to pick up another one Sunday. The righty entered with a two-run cushion, but did allow two runners to get into scoring position before inducing a pop up and a strike out to get out of the jam. This was Trivino's fourth save of the season. The outing lowered his ERA to 7.17.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Bags third save of season

    Trivino picked up the save Saturday against the Royals. He allowed no runs on two hits while striking out three and walking one over two innings.

    Trivino earned a two-inning save Saturday, throwing 20 of 32 pitches for strikes. It was his third save of the season and his first since April 16. After entering this season as the primary closer for Oakland, Trivino has struggled to the tune of a 7.52 ERA, although the righty has lowered his ERA in each of his last three appearances. He looks like he'll re-emerge as a factor in the late innings after Oakland recently moved closer Dany Jimenez (shoulder) to the 15-day injured list.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Stumbles again Thursday

    Trivino (1-5) took the loss against the Guardians on Thursday, allowing four earned runs on five hits and a walk over one-third of an inning.

    The right-hander has now allowed four earned runs in a relief appearance on two occasions this season, and Thursday's particularly poor effort ballooned his ERA from already ugly 6.91 to 9.20. Entrusted with preserving a 4-4 tie when he entered in the eighth inning, Trivino's nightmare of an outing saw him surrender an infield single, a bunt single on which he committed a throwing error that allowed a run to score and a two-run double. Given his unsteady form for most of the season, Trivino could have trouble seeing further high-leverage usage for the time being.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Losing effort

    Trivino (1-4) took the loss Tuesday against the Braves. He allowed one run on two hits and zero walks while striking out two over one inning.

    Trivino entered a tie game in the seventh inning, but he continued a disappointing 2022 campaign by allowing a solo home run to Guillermo Heredia. The struggling reliever not only lost his closer job earlier this season but now has a 6.91 ERA.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Takes third loss

    Trivino (1-3) took the loss in a defeat at the hands of the Rangers on Thursday, allowing two earned runs on two hits over one-third of an inning. He struck out one.

    Trivino saw a recent strong stretch of pitching end with Thursday's stumble, one that saw him give up a run-scoring double to Adolis Garcia that snapped a 1-1 tie. Nathaniel Lowe subsequently drove in Garcia with a two-run home run off Sam Moll, tacking another run onto Trivino's ledger following his exit. The right-hander's rocky outing pushed his ERA back up to 7.94 after Trivino had lowered it by nearly six runs to 6.55 over the course of his previous 11 appearances.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Gets first hold

    Trivino recorded his first hold in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday, firing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning in which he recorded a strikeout.

    Trivino got his pair of outs to close out the sixth inning on a tidy seven pitches, five which he threw for strikes. The efficient effort was the latest in a stretch of strong showings for Trivino, who now has a 1-0 mark, 2.70 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 14.9 K/9 across the 6.2 innings covering his last 10 appearances.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Solid run continues

    Trivino fired 1.1 perfect innings in a loss to the Mariners on Monday, recording two strikeouts.

    The right-hander continues to whittle his ERA down after it had ballooned to an unwieldy 12.46 as recently as May 3, as he's now contributed scoreless appearances in five of his last six trips to the mound. Save opportunities are hard to come by on the 17-27 Athletics, and with the emergence of Dany Jimenez (eight saves) as the primary closer, Trivino has lost most of his fantasy appeal for the time being.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Gets first win Saturday

    Trivino (1-2) secured the win during a victory over the Angels in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday, getting the final out of the ninth inning on a strikeout.

    The right-hander actually entered in what was at the time a low-leverage spot, as the Athletics trailed 3-1 with only three outs left to mount a comeback. However, Trivino was rewarded for getting Mike Trout to strike out on four pitches when Oakland came up with three runs in the home half of the frame to emerge with a walk-off win. Trivino has done a good job righting his ship after a rough start to May during which he gave up five runs (four earned) to the Rays over two-thirds of an inning, as he's allowed just one earned run over the three frames covering his subsequent five appearances.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Coughs up run Tuesday

    Trivino allowed an earned run on two hits, a walk and a hit by pitch across one inning during a win over the Tigers in the second game of a doubleheader on Tuesday. He struck out one.

    The right-hander labored through his one frame, firing 27 pitches overall and yielding a bases-loaded walk to Robbie Grossman that resulted in the Tigers' one run of the game. Trivino had given up five runs (four earned) over two-thirds of an inning back on May 3 in his return from the COVID-19 injured list, but he'd bounced back with a pair of scoreless efforts of one-third of an inning each before Tuesday's stumble.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Struggles in return

    Trivino (0-2) took the loss during Tuesday's 10-7 defeat at the hands of the Rays, allowing five runs (four earned) on four hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning.

    After Tampa Bay tied the game in the top of the ninth, Trivino was brought in and got the final out of the inning. He stayed in for the 10th and permitted five Rays to reach base while recording only one out to fall in line for the loss. This was the 30-year-old's first appearance since April 16 due to a stint on the COVID-19 injured list and the rust clearly showed. As Oakland continues its youth movement, Trivino's days as the closer could be numbered.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Hit hard in first rehab appearance

    Trivino (illness) drew the start and took the loss in Low-A Stockton's defeat at the hands of Fresno on Sunday, allowing five earned runs on five hits over one inning while recording two strikeouts.

    Trivino's first time back on the mound since April 16 with the big-league club could hardly have gone any worse, as the right-hander struggled to get outs despite the low level of competition. Trivino threw 20 pitches overall -- arguably a bit low considering how much contact he surrendered -- and he may log at least one more rehab appearance given how poorly Sunday's went.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Back from COVID-19 IL

    The Athletics reinstated Trivino (illness) from COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Infielder Nick Allen was dispatched to Triple-A Las Vegas following Monday's loss to the Rays to clear a spot on the 26-man active roster for Trivino, who spent two weeks on the IL after testing positive for the virus. Trivino had been serving as Oakland's closer prior to being deactivated, but he may not immediately step back into the role after he was roughed up for five runs over one inning in his lone rehab appearance at Las Vegas over the weekend. Moreover, Dany Jimenez has performed well at the back end of the bullpen while Trivino was sidelined, converting all three of his save chances while striking out seven and allowing two unearned runs in six innings.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Expected back Tuesday

    The Athletics are expected to reinstate Trivino (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Oakland opened a spot on the 26-man active roster by optioning infielder Nick Allen to Triple-A Sacramento following Monday's loss to the Rays, setting the stage for Trivino to rejoin the big club after a two-plus-week stay on the IL. Trivino was rocked for five runs over an inning out of the bullpen in his lone rehab appearance with Sacramento on Sunday, so the Athletics may prefer to ease him back into the mix in a lower-leverage spot rather than immediately reinstalling him as their closer.

  • Athletics' Lou Trivino: Slated to begin rehab assignment

    Trivino (illness) will begin a rehab assignment at Single-A Stockton on Sunday, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    The right-hander has been on the COVID-19 injured list since April 18, but he'll now return to game action with the Athletics' minor-league affiliate. Manager Mark Kotsay said Saturday that Trivino will be evaluated on a game-by-game basis to determine when he'll be cleared to rejoin the major-league club.
