An obscure prospect named Dan Straily has been summoned to Oakland. So while the Angels now have their Greinke and the Rangers their Dempster -- and some day the Mariners will have their Hultzen --the surging Athletics have ther own weapon in the American League West arm's race.
Rumor has it Cy Young will come out of retirement to watch the debut.
No details yet on where he will fit on the staff or what sort of innings cap he might be dealing with. Parker almost certainly faces an innings cap so perhaps the A's will try something funky like a 6-man rotation.
In any case, the Straily era has begin.
