Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Oakland Athletics recalled right-handed pitcher Evan Scribner from Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.
Scribner joins the A's for his fourth stint this year, posting a 1-0 mark with a 1.69 ERA in six relief appearances. He is also 4-1 with a 3.06 ERA in 40 relief appearances with Sacramento and is tied for fourth in the Pacific Coast League with 16 saves.
To make room for Scribner, the A's optioned left-handed pitcher Drew Pomeranz to Single-A Beloit.
Pomeranz was recalled from Sacramento on Wednesday to start at Houston and allowed one unearned run in 5 1/3 innings in a no decision in Oakland's 5-4 win.
In being optioned to Beloit, Pomeranz will be eligible to be recalled once its Midwest League season is over on Monday. Otherwise, Oakland would have to wait 10 days to recall him from a minor league team that season is still ongoing. Rosters expand for major league teams on Monday, Sept. 1.
Pomeranz is 5-4 with a 2.66 ERA in 18 games overall with Oakland.
