Resop clears waivers, outrighted to Triple-A


ARLINGTON -- Reliever Chris Resop has passed through waivers, allowing the A's to keep the right-handed veteran in their system as bullpen depth.

Resop, who was designated for assignment on Friday, cleared waivers Monday morning and was outrighted to Triple-A Sacramento.

The 30-year-old did not allow an earned run over his first seven appearances with the A's, but he surrendered 12 in his last 11 games, spanning 11 2/3 innings, for a 9.26 ERA in that stretch. Overall, opponents were hitting .293 against him.
