A's designate LHP Jerry Blevins for assignment
The Oakland Athletics have designated left-hander Jerry Blevins for assignment and recalled right-hander Guillermo Moscoso from Triple-A Sacramento to start against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
Moscoso makes his ninth start of the season. He's 3-4 with a 2.16 ERA. He was sent to Sacramento on July 7 because the A's didn't need a fifth starter for the time being because of the All-Star break.
Blevins was recalled from Sacramento following the first game of a doubleheader Saturday and pitched Sunday. He is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA in 16 games with the A's this year.
The A's said Blevins remains on their 40-man roster.
