The Cheap Oakland Athletics Jerseys bullpen is going to need someone to step up in 2021. Lou Trivino may end up being the key to the upcoming season.
Chances are, the bullpen for the 2021 Oakland A’s will look a lot different than the 2020 relief corps. Four members of the bullpen, including closer Liam Hendriks, are free agents. While the A’s may be able to retain one or two of those arms, they are going to need to find a new closer while working out a bridge to the ninth inning.

As it currently stands, Jake Diekman is expected to be the A’s closer in the coming year. Although that is a bit of a gamble due to his walk rate, his dominant 2020 puts him atop that list. But the question remains – who will get the ball to Diekman?

The key to that bridge may be Cheap Lou Trivino Jersey. A potential option at closer should Diekman not work out, Trivino had a strong 2020 campaign in his own right. He posted a 3.86 ERA and a 1.114 WHiP in his 23.1 innings, striking out 26 batters with ten walks.

That performance was in stark contrast to his 2019 campaign. Trivino struggled in his second season in the majors, posting a 5.25 ERA and a 1.533 WHiP in 60 innings. Although he still struck out nearly a batter per inning with his 57 strikeouts, he issued 31 walks and allowed 61 hits. His command made him a gamble for the A’s whenever he was called upon.

At this point, Trivino has had two solid seasons and that one difficult campaign in 2019. Considering the unique nature of the 2020 season, it is difficult to regard that as part of an answer as to whether or not he can be part of the A’s bullpen solution.

Lou Trivino is going to be a key part of the Oakland A’s bullpen in 2021. However, there is no guarantee that he will be the pitcher the A’s need him to be.

The MLB offseason has been slow so far, especially among the biggest names on the free agent market. The largest contract so far is a 4yr/$40m deal between the Mets and catcher James McCann, the 16th-best available name. Nobody else has scored more than two years or $20 million, but surely we’ll see some major money spent at some point this winter.

That money won’t come from the Oakland A’s, though, from the sound of it. They have a core of young stars and a real chance to compete in 2021, but they’ll have to be active on the scrap heap in order to reinforce a roster that’s been shredded by free agency. And in that regard, there’s no time to waste, because the best bargains are quickly drying up.

A couple weeks ago, I offered a list of a half-dozen relief pitchers who were non-tendered by their 2020 teams, and looked like promising gambles for 2021 who could be had for barely more than league minimum salary. All six were righties, and there was a lefty honorable mention at the end (Claudio). Let’s see how that list is faring so far:

Matt Andriese
Alex Claudio (LAA, 1yr/$1.1m)
A.J. Cole
Kenyan Middleton (SEA, 1yr/$0.8m)
Ryan Tepera
Nick Tropeano
Matt Wisler (SFG, 1yr/$1.2m)
That’s three outta seven off the board already, and it’s only been 16 days since I published that article. Worse, two of them went to AL West division rivals, and the other to the Giants. Middleton was the second-most popular name on the list, in our community poll of nearly 500 votes. (Cole was the favorite, at 35% of the vote.)

Of course, there are many other names available beyond these seven, so perhaps there are different cheap targets you prefer. But there’s no question that the A’s need to add somebody, because there are at least four or five open spots in their bullpen right now even after adding a Rule 5 pick — everyone else except Cheap Jake Diekman Jersey and Cheap J.B. Wendelken Jersey can be stashed in Triple-A to begin the season if needed. The only thing you can ever know for sure about your Opening Day bullpen is that it won’t be enough, and you’ll need as much help as possible for whatever unforeseen things go wrong, so it’s critical they beef up their depth chart this offseason.

There are great deals to be had on enticing, high-ceiling bullpen sleepers right now. If you want to build a contender on a budget, including finding an entirely new late-inning setup crew, then missing out on the rest of these cheap opportunities could be a costly mistake. So far they’re disappearing at a rate of roughly one every five days, so, don’t blink.

CLEVELAND — For the first time since 2016, the Indians made a selection in the Major League portion of the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday afternoon, but the team also lost two of its prospects.

Though it was conducted through a Slack channel and an online audio stream rather than a conference room at the Winter Meetings, the Rule 5 Draft carried on as usual on Thursday, as the Indians selected right-hander Cheap Trevor Stephan Jersey from the Yankees’ Triple-A roster. The Tribe also lost righty Luis Oviedo (who was drafted by the Mets and immediately traded to the Pirates, a source told MLB.com) and outfielder Ka’ai Tom.

The 25-year-old Stephan was ranked the Yankees’ 24th-best prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. He relies heavily on his fastball (a pitch that tops out at 98 mph) and has decent spin rates on his slider/cutter. The 6-foot-5 Stephan, who has been a starter in New York’s system, struggled so much with command in 2019 (issuing nine walks in his final 13 outings) that MLB Pipeline experts have projected he could become a two-pitch reliever in the Majors rather than remain a starter.

Cleveland has already lost Brad Hand, Oliver Pérez and Adam Cimber from its bullpen, so another relief arm could prove to be helpful.

Stephan was a third-round selection in the 2017 MLB Draft out of the University of Arkansas. He owns a 3.70 career ERA in three Minor League seasons with 275 strikeouts in 238 2/3 innings. The addition of Stephan puts the Tribe’s 40-man roster at 38 players.

The Tribe also gained an outfielder on Thursday in the Minor League portion of the Rule 5 Draft, selecting Chris Roller from the Dodgers’ Class A Advanced team. The 24-year-old was a 30th-round pick by Los Angeles in the 2017 MLB Draft out of McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas, and he has hit .255 with a .774 OPS and 31 steals in 187 Minor League games.

While the Indians picked up two players — one in the Major League portion and one in the Minor League portion — in the Rule 5 Draft, they also lost two. Oviedo was chosen first when the Mets selected him with the ninth pick. New York then traded him to the Pirates for cash considerations.

Oviedo was the Tribe’s No. 25 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline. But in a system with so many talented starting pitchers, there were only so many it could protect. Oviedo has a fastball that sits in the mid-90s, and his curveball developed into his best secondary pitch in 2019. But Oviedo, who posted a 2.05 ERA in 11 starts across two levels in ’18, pitched to a 5.38 ERA in ’19.

The Indians also lost outfielder Tom, who was selected by the A’s with the 16th pick after not getting taken in last year’s Rule 5 Draft. Cleveland has a desperate need for talented outfielders, but the 26-year-old was not part of Cleveland’s 60-man player pool this season. In 2019, he hit .290 with a .912 OPS, 27 doubles, 10 triples, 23 homers and 86 RBIs in 132 games split between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. However, with the Tribe looking to try its top prospect in Cheap Nolan Jones Jersey in the outfield to go along with Cheap Daniel Johnson Jersey, there was no clear path for Tom to make an immediate impact.
