  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Beginning assignment Tuesday

    Muller (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Muller has been sidelined since the end of May due to tendinitis in his left shoulder, but he has now been given the go-ahead to test his shoulder in a game setting. The A's haven't specified how long they plan on keeping the 26-year-old in the minors, but he will likely require multiple rehab outings after being held out of action for nearly a month.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Next steps identified

    Muller (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Sunday, MLB.com reports.

    The left-hander began a throwing program June 6, and he appears to be progressing through it without setbacks. If all goes well with Sunday's bullpen session, Muller is slated to head out for a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas at some point during the following week.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: In midst of throwing program

    Muller (shoulder) began a throwing program Thursday, MLB.com reports.

    The next step for Muller will be to progress to throwing off a mound, but a timetable for such has yet to be established. The right-hander appears to be making fairly steady progress, however, so he could be set for activation well before the end of June.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Evaluation coming next week

    Muller (shoulder) is slated to be evaluated by team doctors next week, MLB.com reports.

    Muller was scratched from his start Thursday and subsequently placed on the injured list due to left shoulder tendinitis, and he's been shut down from throwing for the time being. Team doctors will take a closer look in the coming days at how the rest might be aiding his progress, and a determination of when Muller might be able to begin a throwing program will be made at that point.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Shut down with shoulder injury

    The Athletics placed Muller on the 15-day injured list Thursday with left shoulder tendinitis.

    Muller looked to be a potential candidate to fill the opening in the Oakland rotation Thursday in Tampa Bay, but his shoulder injury will end up thwarting those plans. The Athletics called up lefty Hogan Harris from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move, and he could factor into the team's pitching plans for Thursday's series finale.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Takes first loss Wednesday

    Muller (0-1) took the loss in an extra-innings defeat at the hands of the Rockies on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits over one inning.

    Muller was entrusted with preserving a 2-2 tie when he entered in the 12th inning, but he faltered almost immediately by giving up a go-ahead two-run home run to Ryan McMahon with designated runner Jake Cave aboard. Oakland would halve its two-run deficit in the home half of the frame but fall short of knotting the score back up, saddling Muller with his first loss. The southpaw sports a respectable 3.94 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, but he's allowed at least one run in nine of his 12 appearances.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Long relief candidate Friday

    Muller could follow starter Mitch Spence as a long reliever during Friday's game against the Royals, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    With the A's rotation plagued by injuries, Muller was initially an option to start Friday's series opener. However, Oakland will hand the ball to Mitch Spence -- who's gone three or more innings six times this season -- to start the contest. Still, Muller could follow Spence and see multiple innings of work if needed.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Another stellar long-relief effort

    Muller replaced starter Joe Boyle with two outs in the third inning of Monday's loss to the Red Sox and allowed an earned run on one hit and two walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out six.

    Muller's previous starting experience has already come into play twice over the first five games, as manager Mark Kotsay has taken advantage of the southpaw's ability to work multiple innings to preserve his bullpen in lopsided shutout losses. Muller's impressive work over that pair of appearances -- he's pitched to a 1.13 ERA and 0.50 WHIP while allowing only two hits in eight innings -- could pay dividends for him down the line in the form of a rotation audition if starters such as Alex Wood or Boyle continue to struggle.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Impresses in relief Thursday

    Muller fired 2.2 scoreless relief innings in a loss to the Guardians on Thursday, allowing a hit while recording two strikeouts. He also hit a batter.

    Muller came on in relief of starter Alex Wood and threw 24 of his 32 pitches for strikes. The strong outing is a welcome sight for Muller following a rough 2023 in which he produced a 1-5 record, 7.60 ERA and 1.96 WHIP across 21 appearances (13 starts) for the Athletics, and an uneven Cactus League performance that included a 1.85 WHIP and .328 BAA over 13 innings.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Working with revamped delivery

    Muller, who struggled to a 1-5 record, 7.60 ERA and 1.96 WHIP across 77 innings in his Athletics debut campaign in 2023, made several changes to his mechanics this offseason, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Muller has had only one opportunity to show off the new look in game action thus far this spring, allowing an earned run on a walk and two hits over two innings while recording three strikeouts in a start against the Dodgers on Feb. 25. However, Gallegos notes Muller's modifications have been noticeable any time he's picked up a ball during camp, with the big right-hander having raised his arm slot and adjusted his windup rotation from east-to-west to more of a north-south orientation, per the recommendations of the team's baseball operations department. The mechanics closely mirror those Muller utilized while toiling in Atlanta's minor-league system in 2022, and the young hurler noted after his first outing that he could already see the changes paying dividends in the form of more swings and misses on his fastball.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Works in relief Saturday

    Muller tossed two innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out one.

    In his previous outing Sept. 3 versus the Angels, Muller started and kept the Halos off the board through the first three innings, but he melted down in the fourth, giving up three runs before being pulled. Since Muller carried a 7.62 ERA and 1.93 WHIP over 15 appearances (13 starts) on the season heading into the weekend, the Athletics opted to move him to the bullpen and gave Sean Newcomb an audition as a starter. Newcomb delivered four scoreless frames Saturday before turning the game over to Muller, though neither pitcher was ultimately stuck with the loss. In any case, with Newcomb making the most of his opportunity, look for him to get at least one more start while Muller sticks in a relief role.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Tagged with three runs

    Muller yielded three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings during Sunday's win over the Angels. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Muller started with three scoreless frames before serving up a two-run shot to Eduardo Escobar in the fourth inning. Muller has coughed up nine runs over eight innings since returning to the starting rotation. For the season, he's sporting a 7.62 ERA with a 52:34 K:BB across 15 appearances (13 starts). Muller could get moved back to a long-relief role with Luis Medina (finger) and Mason Miller (elbow) both expected to return soon.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Receives start Sunday

    Muller is slated to start Sunday's game against the Angels in Oakland.

    Despite being lit up for six earned runs on nine hits and three walks over four innings in his return to the rotation this past Monday in Seattle, Muller will get a second straight start. A strong showing against the Angels could buy Muller some more time in the Oakland rotation, but another poor outing would put him at risk of a move to the bullpen or a demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas next week. The Athletics could get some reinforcement to their rotation as soon as next week with both Luis Medina (finger) and Mason Miller (elbow) tracking toward returns from the injured list.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Touched up for six runs

    Muller (1-5) allowed six runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out six over four innings, taking the loss Monday versus the Mariners.

    Muller couldn't cool the Mariners' hot bats, instead suffering one of his worst outings of the year. This was just the second time he's given up multiple homers in a game this season, and the six runs allowed matched his season high. Muller is now at a 7.67 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 49:33 K:BB through 63.1 innings over 14 appearances (12 starts). The Athletics' rotation is likely to remain a bit beat up into September, but it's unclear if that will be enough to earn Muller another start with Mason Miller (elbow) potentially available by the weekend if his rehab outing Tuesday goes smoothly.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Starting Monday

    Muller will start Monday's game against the Mariners, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Muller served as a long reliever during his last two appearances, but he'll make his first start since July 1 during Monday's series opener against the red-hot Mariners. Over his two outings since rejoining the big-league club, Muller has allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six in 7.1 innings.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Summoned from Triple-A

    Oakland recalled Miller from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.

    Muller will presumably be available in long relief Wednesday against the Cardinals as he returns to the Athletics' major-league roster, though the team will have an opening in the rotation for him beginning next week. The 25-year-old left-hander has posted a rough 7.79 ERA, 1.96 WHIP and 37:27 K:BB over 52 innings (11 starts) this season in the big leagues.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Optioned to Triple-A

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.

    Muller was recalled from Las Vegas on Saturday for his first big-league start in five weeks, and he'll return to the affiliate after he gave up three earned runs over five innings. The left-hander has a 7.79 ERA over 11 starts in the majors and a 6.59 ERA in six starts at Triple-A this season, so he shouldn't be on the fantasy radar even if he rejoins Oakland's rotation later this summer.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Yields three runs in return

    Muller did not factor in the decision against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four batters over five innings.

    Muller was recalled Saturday after toiling at Triple-A Las Vegas for the past five-plus weeks. He managed to keep Oakland in the contest with five innings during which he allowed three runs, though the southpaw wasn't exactly effective in allowing six hits and tying a season high with four walks. Muller may remain in the rotation for now with James Kaprielian (shoulder) on the injured list, though the former hasn't been effective in the majors this season with a 7.79 ERA and 1.96 WHIP over 52 innings.

  • Athletics' Kyle Muller: Recalled from Vegas

    The Athletics recalled Muller from Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday ahead of his start against the White Sox.

    Muller was optioned to Triple-A on May 23 after accumulating an 8.04 ERA and 1.96 WHIP through 47 innings across 10 starts. His numbers didn't improve much in Triple-A (6.59 ERA and 1.84 WHIP), but he'll receive a promotion nonetheless and return to Oakland's rotation. Kirby Snead was optioned to Las Vegas in a corresponding move.
