Athletics | A.J. Griffin nearing rehab outing

Mon, 04 May 2015 19:42:09 -0700

Athletics | A.J. Griffin throws session

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 14:16:12 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP A.J. Griffin (elbow) impressed manager Bob Melvin during his throwing session Friday, Feb. 20. "A.J. was throwing as lively as we've seen in quite some time." Melvin also noted Griffin is eager to return, and they may have to hold him back a little.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin and Oakland are eyeballing June for a possible return, which makes him a waiver-wire target and not a late-round flier in drafts. Griffin was solid through the first 47 starts of his career with a 3.83 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and a 7.7 SO/9 mark. So there is upside for him down the stretch this season, but he is a player to monitor and not roster, at this point.
