The Sox are getting themselves a handy reliever.

Varvaro owns a 2.74 ERA over 123 appearances over the past two seasons, but the Braves designated him for assignment today in order to clear a spot for the newly-signed Alberto Callaspo on the 40-man roster.

The past view days were . . . intense. But here is a quick and handy guide to everything that went down.

The Braves will likely try him at second base, though he can play basically anywhere.

The Blue Jays are looking in the bargain bin to fill their void at second base.

Including writeups for the top 63, because we’re not always all about round numbers.

Somehow, it all seemed to tie this strange 2014 season together in one fitting package, though the end result wasn’t what anyone in green and gold wanted.

Adam Dunn has no problem with not playing last night. And, apparently, does not plan to play again.

Salvador Perez was held hitless in his first five at-bats of Tuesday’s American League Wild Card Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, but he smacked a walkoff RBI single down the left-field line in the 12th inning to give the Royals a 9-8 victory over the A’s.

The only thing more painful than hitting rock bottom is thinking you’ve hit it, only to find out there’s still more room to sink.

The hourglass is running low on this team.

Two weeks ago the Angels demoted Grant Green to Triple-A despite his .359 batting average in 22 games, but now he’s back in the majors.

Trailing in a game does little to affect the Oakland A’s right now.

Mike Trout started the 2013 season hitting second in the Angels’ lineup, but moved to the #3 spot when Albert Pujols went on the disabled list in late July. He produced similarly in both spots, posting a 1.015 in 405 plate appearances in the two-hole, and a .963 OPS in 223 PA batting third. With…

The A’s made the most impetuous decision of the postseason in starting Sonny Gray over Bartolo Colon in Wednesday’s Game 5, choosing a rookie over the guy who finished second in the AL in ERA based on one excellent performance. And how’d the follow that up? By treating Game 5 against a completely dominant Justin…

Bad news for the Athletics: Justin Verlander has another run to work with. Sonny Gray was pulled from the game after he gave up back-to-back singles to Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta to begin the top of the sixth inning. He was relieved by Dan Otero, who got Victor Martinez to ground into a fielder’s…

D.J. Short posted earlier about the O.co Coliseum’s latest sewage issue as a result of rain in the Oakland area. The showers caused a two-hour delay while players, coaches, and clubhouse personnel dealt with the primitive conditions indoors. Once play resumed, the A’s wasted no time getting on the board. Alberto Callaspo contributed an RBI…

Well, it’s Sept. 17 … and the Kansas City Royals have a shot at the postseason. It’s a bit of a longshot, sure. They are 2 1/2 games behind Texas in the wildcard standings right now, which is hardly insurmountable (especially the way the Rangers are playing). But they also have Cleveland and Baltimore ahead…

Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

Twins 3, Indians 0: In only his second major league start Andrew Albers spins a two-hit shutout on a mere 102 pitches. This goes with his eight shutout innings in his first start. As a person who has been writing about baseball professionally for nearly four years, I can tell you with absolute certainty and…

Yankees 5, Tigers 4: If I told you that Mariano Rivera blew two saves in a three game series you’d probably assume the Yankees had a bad series. Except in this case they won both of the games Mo blew. Baseball is weird. Miguel Cabrera homered off of him again on Sunday — he’s only…
Aug 6, 2013, 1:16 PM EST
Grant Green went 0-for-15 in his brief call-up with the A’s, who then traded him to the Angels for Alberto Callaspo last week. And now he’s heading back to the majors. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports that the Angels will call up Green for tonight’s game, adding the 24-year-old infielder to the roster for what…

Adam Rosales cleared waivers last month the first time the A’s sent him down, but he was picked up this time, with the Rangers choosing to add him to their infield. The 30-year-old Rosales was hitting .193/.268/.319 over 135 at-bats in his two stints with the A’s this season. He’s a lifetime .220/.289/.334 hitter with…
