A's option Devine to Triple-A Sacramento
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The A's optioned right-handed pitcher Joey Devine to Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

Devine, who was slowed earlier this month because of bicep tightness, struggled with his command and mechanics at times this spring. He missed the last two seasons because of Tommy John surgery.

Devine was charged with three runs in 4 1/3 Cactus League innings this spring.

"Obviously, we'll go with other relievers to start the season. But I'm encouraged with his last two outings, and he feels positive with where he is at, right now, physically," manager Bob Geren said. "It's not usually encouraging when you send somebody down, but in this particular case, we are very happy. He's healthy, good velocity. He feels like the Minor Leagues is exactly what he needs."
