Righty reliever Scribner placed on 60-day DL with torn right lat
By Austin Laymance
The A's have acquired left-hander Daniel Coulombe from the Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations, the club announced on Thursday.
Coulombe -- ranked by MLBPipeline.com as the Dodgers' No. 28 prospect at the time of the deal -- pitched in five games for the Dodgers this season across five stints in the Majors and recorded seven strikeouts in 8 1/3 innings, posting a 7.56 ERA. He's pitched primarily at Triple-A this year, recording a 3.27 ERA in 38 relief appearances. The Dodgers drafted Coulombe in the 25th round of the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, and he made his big league debut last year.
To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A's placed right-hander Evan Scribner on the 60-day disabled list with a torn right lat muscle. Scribner was 2-2 with a 4.35 ERA in 54 relief appearances with the A's this season. He recorded 64 strikeouts in 60 innings, but also allowed 14 home runs, most among Major League relievers.
