Oakland A’s – A.J. Puk entered last night’s game in the fifth inning with Oakland trailing, 5-4, and promptly gave up three runs thanks to a triple and a throwing error. He then stayed on to pitch a perfect sixth and seventh. Puk’s previous appearance was in the seventh, though that was to protect a 5-3 lead with Oakland in a jam against the heart of the Yankees’ lineup. Based on this usage, we’ll move Lou Trivino to the top of this committee for now.

Updated hierarchy: *Trivino | Puk | Jackson.
* = closer-by-committee

We Puk owners would be happier if it seemed the A's would ever win any ballgames.

Oakland A’s – The A’s placed Dany Jimenez on the IL yesterday with a shoulder injury, though an MRI showed no structural damage. Manager Mark Kotsay mentioned A.J. Puk and Zach Jackson as options to fill in for Jimenez.

Updated hierarchy: *Puk | Jackson | Acevedo.

Rotoworld:

05.12: A.J. Puk picked up his first win in three years by throwing two scoreless innings of relief against the Tigers on Thursday. (Left
alone in the pen this year, Puk has impressed in allowing just one run
in 15 innings. It's not what the A's were expecting from him when they
made him the sixth overall pick in the 2016 draft, but considering how
the previous two years went for him, they'll definitely take what they
can get.)

Me, too.
