You may have seen this already but reliever Russ Springer has been picked up off of waivers by the Tampa Bay Rays. The A’s had to make room on the roster for tonight’s starter, Clayton Mortensen.
Springer, 40, pitched in 48 games for the A’s and went 0-1 with a 4.10 ERA. He didn’t give up a run in 21 of his last 25 outings, but the A’s youth movement continues unabated.
