The Oakland A’s minor league spring training camp came to an end over the weekend, with players assigned to the A’s full-season affiliates heading out for their new baseball homes. At the close of camp, the A’s released two more minor leaguers: right-hander Joey Wagman and catcher Jarrett Costa.
Wagman signed with the A’s as a minor league free agent in July 2014. He reached as high as Double-A, and did a mix of starting and relieving during his time with the A’s. In 298.1 career innings, Wagman has a 4.43 ERA and 275 strike-outs. He pitched for Team Israel during the 2017 WBC. Wagman is a Danville native and graduate of Monte Vista High School.
Costa was a 33rd-round pick of the A’s out of Westmont College. The backstop played for the AZL A’s and the short-season Vermont Lake Monsters during his two years in the A’s system. In 66 games, he hit .185 with two home runs.
The A’s released nine players earlier in camp. The minor league regular season gets underway on Thursday.
