  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Works in relief Saturday

    Muller tossed two innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one.

    In his previous outing Sept. 3 versus the Angels, Muller started and kept the Halos off the board through the first three innings, but he melted down in the fourth, giving up three runs before being pulled. Since Muller carried a 7.62 ERA and 1.93 WHIP over 15 appearances (13 starts) on the season heading into the weekend, the Athletics opted to move him to the bullpen and gave Sean Newcomb an audition as a starter. Newcomb delivered four scoreless frames Saturday before turning the game over to Muller, though neither pitcher was ultimately stuck with the loss. In any case, with Newcomb making the most of his opportunity, look for him to get at least one more start while Muller sticks in a relief role.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Tagged with three runs

    Muller yielded three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings during Sunday's win over the Angels. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Muller started with three scoreless frames before serving up a two-run shot to Eduardo Escobar in the fourth inning. Muller has coughed up nine runs over eight innings since returning to the starting rotation. For the season, he's sporting a 7.62 ERA with a 52:34 K:BB across 15 appearances (13 starts). Muller could get moved back to a long-relief role with Luis Medina (finger) and Mason Miller (elbow) both expected to return soon.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Receives start Sunday

    Muller is slated to start Sunday's game against the Angels in Oakland.

    Despite being lit up for six earned runs on nine hits and three walks over four innings in his return to the rotation this past Monday in Seattle, Muller will get a second straight start. A strong showing against the Angels could buy Muller some more time in the Oakland rotation, but another poor outing would put him at risk of a move to the bullpen or a demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas next week. The Athletics could get some reinforcement to their rotation as soon as next week with both Luis Medina (finger) and Mason Miller (elbow) tracking toward returns from the injured list.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Touched up for six runs

    Muller (1-5) allowed six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out six over four innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Mariners.

    Muller couldn't cool the Mariners' hot bats, instead suffering one of his worst outings of the year. This was just the second time he's given up multiple homers in a game this season, and the six runs allowed matched his season high. Muller is now at a 7.67 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 49:33 K:BB through 63.1 innings over 14 appearances (12 starts). The Athletics' rotation is likely to remain a bit beat up into September, but it's unclear if that will be enough to earn Muller another start with Mason Miller (elbow) potentially available by the weekend if his rehab outing Tuesday goes smoothly.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Starting Monday

    Muller will start Monday's game against the Mariners, Martin Gallegos of reports.

    Muller served as a long reliever during his last two appearances, but he'll make his first start since July 1 during Monday's series opener against the red-hot Mariners. Over his two outings since rejoining the big-league club, Muller has allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six in 7.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Summoned from Triple-A

    Oakland recalled Miller from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Muller will presumably be available in long relief Wednesday against the Cardinals as he returns to the Athletics' major-league roster, though the team will have an opening in the rotation for him beginning next week. The 25-year-old left-hander has posted a rough 7.79 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 37:27 K:BB over 52 innings (11 starts) this season in the big leagues.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Optioned to Triple-A

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

    Muller was recalled from Las Vegas on Saturday for his first big-league start in five weeks, and he'll return to the affiliate after he gave up three earned runs over five innings. The left-hander has a 7.79 ERA over 11 starts in the majors and a 6.59 ERA in six starts at Triple-A this season, so he shouldn't be on the fantasy radar even if he rejoins Oakland's rotation later this summer.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Yields three runs in return

    Muller did not factor in the decision against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four batters over five innings.

    Muller was recalled Saturday after toiling at Triple-A Las Vegas for the past five-plus weeks. He managed to keep Oakland in the contest with five innings during which he allowed three runs, though the southpaw wasn't exactly effective in allowing six hits and tying a season high with four walks. Muller may remain in the rotation for now with James Kaprielian (shoulder) on the injured list, though the former hasn't been effective in the majors this season with a 7.79 ERA and 1.96 WHIP over 52 innings.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Recalled from Vegas

    The Athletics recalled Muller from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday ahead of his start against the White Sox.

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A on May 23 after accumulating an 8.04 ERA and 1.96 WHIP through 47 innings across 10 starts. His numbers didn't improve much in Triple-A (6.59 ERA and 1.84 WHIP), but he'll receive a promotion nonetheless and return to Oakland's rotation. Kirby Snead was optioned to Las Vegas in a corresponding move.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Optioned to Triple-A level

    Oakland optioned Muller to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

    Muller was lit up for six earned runs on eight hits and two walks in a five-inning start Monday at Seattle. The 25-year-old left-hander carries a brutal 8.04 ERA in 47 innings (10 starts) this season at the major-league level.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Hit hard in loss

    Muller dropped to 1-4 on the season after allowing six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings in Monday's 11-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Muller struggled early, giving up a two-run home run to Jarred Kelenic in the first inning and a three-run blast to Jose Caballero an inning later. Muller has allowed at least five runs in six of his 10 starts this season, including each of his last four outings. He has an awful 8.04 ERA with a 1.96 WHIP and 33:23 K:BB across 47 innings. It won't get any easier, as he's tentatively projected for a home start versus the Astros this weekend.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Gives up five in no-decision

    Muller did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs on eight hits over four innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out three.

    Muller's start seemed to be doomed from the get-go, as Christian Walker tagged him for a two-run home run in the first inning that scored Emmanuel Rivera and increased Muller's streak of allowing a home run to seven straight starts. The lefty ended up allowing five runs, marking his third consecutive appearance giving up at least five runs. If there was any positive takeaway from Tuesday's contest, it would be that Muller didn't hand out a single walk for the first time all year. Considering Muller has yet to go six innings in a start and has only struck out more than three batters twice in nine outings, he offers little value to fantasy managers.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Tagged with third loss

    Muller (1-3) took the loss Wednesday, allowing six runs on five hits and three walks over four innings against the Yankees. He struck out six.

    It's been a tough year so far for Muller, who's now allowed five or more runs in four out of eight starts. The 25-year-old left-hander sports an unsightly 7.34 ERA and 1.95 WHIP -- both the highest marks among qualified pitchers -- with a 27:21 K:BB. Muller will look to get on track in his next outing, tentatively scheduled for next week against Arizona.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Tagged with five runs

    Muller (1-2) allowed five runs on eight hits and three walks over 5.1 innings, striking out one and earning a win over the Royals on Friday.

    Muller worked through three scoreless innings before coughing up a two-run homer to Nick Pratto fourth. The Royals plated another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth, chasing Muller from the contest. His one punchout was his lowest total in any start this season and he's now sporting a pedestrian 21:18 K:BB through 34 frames. Muller will carry a 6.62 ERA into his next outing, which is projected to be a road matchup with the Yankees next week.
