John Axford: Cut loose by A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was released by the Athletics on Tuesday.

Axford was cut loose after being designated for assignment last week. The veteran struggled to a 6.43 ERA and 2.09 WHIP across 21 innings for the A's this season. He could catch on elsewhere given his prior major-league experience, but it would be in a low-leverage role.

Athletics' John Axford: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford was designated for assignment by the A's on Thursday.

Axford has given up an earned run in five of his last six outings, and things got particularly bad Monday when he gave up two walks and an earned run before recording an out. Another suitor could always take a risk on a 34-year-old sporting a 6.73 ERA, but if not, he may elect to remain in the Oakland system with hopes of a shot at redemption down the stretch.

Athletics' John Axford: Falters in Sunday outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up an earned run on two hits and a walk over one-third of an inning in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Mariners.

Axford gave up an RBI single to Carlos Ruiz before being relieved by Ryan Madson and closed out the first half on a downswing, having allowed an earned run in each of his last four appearances. The 34-year-old hasn't been able to remain effective for an extended stretch save for a five-appearance scoreless streak in early June, leading to a 6.30 ERA and 2.00 WHIP that both represent career highs.

Athletics' John Axford: Control problems in Monday's outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up an earned run on four walks over one inning in Monday's 7-2 loss to the White Sox. He struck out two.

The veteran reliever had plenty of trouble finding the plate, working up to 33 pitches in his sole inning of work and allowing a run by issuing a bases-loaded walk to Adam Engel. Axford has been inconsistent over his last several outings, giving up an earned run in three straight and seven runs overall in his last nine trips to the mound. Location has been a recurring issue as well, as he's now issued 14 walks in 19.2 innings this season.

Athletics' John Axford: Touched up for homer in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Axford gave up a solo home run and issued a walk over an inning in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Astros.

The veteran reliever yielded a 385-foot shot to George Springer in the eighth, the second homer he's surrendered over his last two appearances. Axford has given up four earned runs over his last three trips to the mound and has had a rough June overall, as evidenced by the 6.23 ERA he's compiled across 8.2 innings.
