Dan Straily Optioned to Sacramento

On Friday the Oakland Athletics announced that Dan Straily was optioned to the Sacramento River Cats. While the move comes as somewhat of a surprise, this is a temporary, but necessary move. Straily’s velocity is down a few MPH and his command is not where it should be. This season he started of strong in his first 2 starts, but Dan has struggled in his last 5 starts. Drew Pomeranz will take Straily’s place in the rotation.

His time in Sacramento will allow him to work on his velocity and command in lower pressure situations. The Athletics still consider Dan an important part of the rotation. He just needs a little time to work out some issues. Dan’s first start in Sacramento is projected to be on Monday, May 12th.
