Oakland Calls Up Josh Outman, Designates Jerry Blevins For Assignment

Josh Outman has been called up by the Oakland A's and Jerry Blevins has been designated for assignment, according to Oakland's PR-run twitter page.

Blevins' results for 2011 include a 4.40 ERA in just 14.1 innings, giving up almost one walk per inning (13 total) and two home runs. At 27, these numbers are somewhat typical of his career (WAR 2008: 0.6; 2009: 0.1; 2010: 0.5; 2011: -0.3), Oakland is looking to give Josh Outman a shot at something better while attempting to find a trade partner for Blevins.

This will be Outman's first work in the big leagues since 2009, where he went 67 innings with a 3.48 ERA and compiled a 1.4 WAR, also with Oakland. He'll start tonight against the Angels.
