Griffin to make Triple-A start on Wednesday
OAKLAND -- A.J. Griffin will take his rehab work to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, when the A's righty will start for the River Cats as he continues to nurse his strained throwing shoulder back to health.

Griffin is expected to throw 65 pitches and will make at least one other Minor League start before Oakland makes a decision on his readiness for big league action. Normally tough to crack, the A's pitching staff may welcome in the added arm at that time thanks to expanding rosters.

"We'll be in September at that point, so we'll take a look at where we are and what we need as far as added pitching depth," manager Bob Melvin said.

The rookie Griffin was superb for the A's before being sidelined, compiling a 3-0 record and 2.42 ERA in eight starts.
