The A's added to their pitching staff by acquiring Parker Bridwell.
The team announced on Tuesday the 27-year-old had been claimed off of waivers from the Los Angeles Angels. This was the third time the right-handed pitcher had been claimed off of waivers since the end of the season.
Last season, with the Halos, Bridwell posted a 17.55 ERA in 6.2 innings. Previously in 2017, he posted a 3.64 ERA in 121 innings.
He will add some pitching depth to the A's, and it appears that despite the numbers, his age shows he still has a healthy timeline left to prove he can bring something to the table.
The ninth-round pick in the 2010 MLB Draft does not lack diversity which is what the A's seem to like. He's started 20 games and has made seven relief appearances. Perhaps the change of scenery could be of some success.
