OAKLAND -– The Oakland A’s acquired left-handed pitcher Daniel Coulombe from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations, the club announced today. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A’s placed right-handed pitcher Evan Scribner on the 60-day disabled list with a torn right lat muscle.
Coulombe appeared in five games over five stints with Los Angeles and had no decisions and a 7.56 ERA. He walked six batters in 8.1 innings and allowed a .265 opponents batting average. The 25-year-old left-hander was most recently with the Dodgers for a one-day stint July 5 when he pitched two innings and allowed a run on three hits and a walk against the Mets. Coulombe spent the balance of the season at Triple-A Oklahoma City where he compiled a 3-1 record, one save and a 3.27 ERA in 38 relief appearances. He was originally drafted by the Dodgers in the 20th round of the 2012 draft and made his Major League debut with Los Angeles in 2014.
Scribner was 2-2 with a 4.35 ERA in 54 games with the A’s. He struck out 64 batters in 60.0 innings but also allowed 14 home runs, which were the most among ML relievers.
