After a 14-inning game that stretched the bullpen thin, the Oakland A’s made several roster moves to add fresh arms before their series with the Boston Red Sox. On Thursday, the A’s optioned RHP Lou Trivino to Triple-A Nashville. Then on Friday, the A’s recalled RHPs Chris Bassitt and Josh Lucas and optioned LHP Danny Coulombe.
Trivino worked four innings in the two days he was in the big leagues this week. He threw four scoreless frames and earned the win in the A’s 14-inning walk-off victory on Wednesday. Coulombe has struggled so far this season. In 9.1 innings, he has allowed six earned runs on five walks and nine hits. He’s struck out seven and allowed two home runs.
Bassitt joins the A’s after a successful stint with Nashville. In 13 innings over three appearances, Bassitt allowed two runs (one earned) on nine hits. He struck out 12 and walked four. Lucas threw 4.2 scoreless innings for Nashville, although he walked four and struck out just two.
On Thursday, the A’s also traded OF Trayce Thompson to the White Sox for cash or a PTBNL. He was designated for assignment on Wednesday.
