The Oakland Athletics lost LHP Sam Moll on waivers to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team announced on Monday. Moll had been designated for assignment last week.
Moll was one of two left-handers in the A’s bullpen for the final month of the 2017 regular season. Acquired from the Colorado Rockies late in the year, Moll made his major-league debut with the A’s on Sept. 1 and he appeared in 11 games for the A’s. In 6.2 innings, he allowed eight runs on 13 hits and three walks. He struck-out seven. Left-handers hit .375 against him.
A 2013 third-round pick of the Rockies, Moll has a career 3.35 ERA in 215 minor league innings. He was a starter his first minor league season, but he has been used exclusively in relief since 2014.
The A’s have only one left-hander — Daniel Coulombe — in their big league bullpen currently, but they figure to add a veteran left-handed reliever at some point this off-season.
