A's Reinstate OF Gentry from the DL; Option RHP Otero to Sacramento


OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland A's reinstated outfielder Craig Gentry from the 15-day disabled list and optioned right-handed pitcher Dan Otero to Triple-A Sacramento, the club announced today.

Gentry was placed on the 15-day disabled list July 28 with a broken right hand. He began a two-game rehab assignment with Sacramento on Monday against Oklahoma City and went 0 for 7 with a RBI and three strikeouts in starts at designated hitter and in right field. Gentry was 4 for 29 (.138) over his final 12 games with the A's before the injury and is batting .264 with 18 stolen bases in 19 attempts in 80 games overall.

Otero has spent the entire season with the A's and is 7-1 with a save and a 2.28 ERA in 56 relief appearances. He has allowed a .250 opponents batting average and has issued just nine walks, an average of 1.14 per nine innings. Otero leads American League relievers in wins, ranks second in innings pitched (71.0) and is fourth in fewest walks per nine innings.
