A’s fans, we have 2 new faces coming to Oakland. One is coming due to Ryan Cook‘s injury which he sustained in Game 1 of the doubleheader on Wednesday. The new faces are Joe Savery, acquired before the start of the season, and Fernando Rodriguez acquired with Jed Lowrie before last season. Both are relievers, and should bolster the bullpen with the loss of Cook.
Yes, you’re doing the math correctly. 1 out 2 in, what else is up? The Athletics have also optioned Dan Straily to Sacramento and have placed Drew Pomeranz in the rotation. A’s fans have been hoping this day would come, and now it’s here. Hopefully the addition of Pomeranz into the rotation will bolster the back-end and provide more wins for the team over the course of the season.
Drew Pomeranz has excelled in every role the Athletics have put him in this season, and this challenge should be no different.
