Brent Honeywell Jr. News
Oakland Athletics pitcher Brent Honeywell Jr. (elbow) was activated from the 60-day injured list and then outrighted to Triple-A Las Vegas. The oft-injured hurler will continue rehabbing in the minors and has a small chance of being called up before the regular season is up.
Oakland Athletics right-hander Brent Honeywell Jr. (elbow) gave up three earned runs on five hits (one homer allowed) while walking one and striking out four in 2 2/3 innings in his minor league rehab outing for Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday. He also hit a batter and threw a wild pitch. The 27-year-old has a rough 14.73 ERA in just 3 2/3 innings in two appearances at Las Vegas, so the A's will probably want to see some better results before considering having him join the major league club. Once a top prospect for the Tampa Bay Rays, Honeywell's career continues to be set back by injuries. In his first three big-league appearances last year in Tampa, he allowed four earned runs while walking three and striking out four in 4 1/4 innings.
Oakland Athletics right-hander Brent Honeywell Jr. (elbow) has already made a pair of minor league rehab outings with Single-A Stockton, and he'll make his next appearance with Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday. Though the A's still view Honeywell as a starter in the long term, manager Mark Kotsay said that Honeywell will likely pitch out of the bullpen for the team this year if he's able to properly build up his workload to return to the majors before the season is over. He's been dealing with a stress reaction in the back of his right elbow since late March in spring training and has yet to make his debut with the A's. The 27-year-old has allowed a run on four hits while walking one and striking out three in three innings in his two rehab starts for Stockton.
