Edward Mujica (hamstring) threw off a mound Wednesday without issue.

Mujica has been on the shelf for the last 10 days with a strained right hamstring, but he should now be getting close. The veteran right-hander owns a 4.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 29/6 K/BB ratio in 44 innings this season between the Red Sox and Athletics.
Sep 24 - 2:17 PM

Edward Mujica (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for a while.

Mujica departed Sunday's game with a strained right hamstring. With just three weeks left in the season, it's possible he's thrown his last pitch of 2015.
Sep 14 - 6:09 PM

Edward Mujica was forced to leave Sunday's game with an apparent leg injury.

He suffered the injury while trying to cover first base in the fifth inning. He will presumably head for X-rays.
Sep 13 - 4:55 PM

Edward Mujica recorded the final three outs of Saturday's defeat of the Astros to earn his first save with the A's.

Drew Pomeranz opened the ninth inning, but he was promptly lifted after issuing a leadoff walk to Jed Lowrie. Mujica entered and shut down the next three batters in order. He might be the guy to own in the Oakland bullpen with Tyler Clippard now pitching for the Mets. Sean Doolittle (shoulder) is still a week or two away.
Aug 8 - 7:04 PM

Edward Mujica gave up a run in a tie game Friday to take a loss against the Indians.

Mujica is Oakland's closer for now following the Tyler Clippard trade, but he could be part of an August deal if anyone wants him and he could be replaced by Sean Doolittle for the final month if everything goes well with the left-hander's rehab. So, while Mujica has some value in mixed leagues right now, he's not exactly someone to count on.
Aug 1 - 3:06 AM

The A's will use Edward Mujica as their closer following the trade of Tyler Clippard.

He hasn't been the club's most effective reliever, but how he's been used indicated that he'd probably be the guy. Having closer experience surely helped him, too. Mujica has put up a 3.68 ERA and 12/2 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings since joining the A's in May. Scoop him up in your league if he's still available.
Jul 28 - 8:11 PM

Athletics activated RHP Edward Mujica from the 15-day disabled list.

Mujica missed nearly a month of action with a fractured right thumb. He'll help set up for Tyler Clippard.
Jun 19 - 5:30 PM

Edward Mujica (thumb) will make another minor league rehab appearance before being re-evaluated.

Mujica, out since May 22 with a fractured right thumb, struck out two batters in a scoreless inning with High-A Stockton on Monday and is likely days way from returning.
Jun 16 - 2:24 PM

Edward Mujica (thumb) made it through another successful bullpen session on Thursday.

He'll throw one more bullpener Saturday before embarking on a minor league rehab assignment Monday with High-A Stockton. Mujica has been on the disabled list since May 22 with a fractured right thumb. He was acquired from the Red Sox on May 9 for a player to be named later.
Jun 11 - 2:17 PM

Edward Mujica (thumb) will throw a bullpen session Thursday in advance of a rehab assignment.

Assuming the session goes well, A's manager Bob Melvin said Mujica could be on a rehab assignment somewhere in the next few days. Mujica was acquired from the Red Sox in a trade in early May but went on the disabled list on May 22 with a fractured right thumb. He should be back with the A's before the end of June.
Jun 10 - 7:24 PM

Edward Mujica (thumb) could resume throwing off a mound by this weekend.

Mujica suffered a fractured right thumb nearly two weeks ago but has made nice progress since then. He could require a rehab assignment but it appears he should be ready to rejoin the A's bullpen before the end of the month.
Jun 9 - 7:36 PM

Athletics placed RHP Edward Mujica on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right thumb.

Mujica suffered the injury Thursday when he was hit by a comebacker off the bat of the Rays' Bobby Wilson. The good news is that the fracture is considered minor, so his stay on the DL shouldn't be too lengthy.
May 22 - 12:17 PM

Edward Mujica suffered a fractured right thumb in Thursday's loss to the Rays and will head to the disabled list.

Mujica sustained the injury when he was hit by a comebacker off the bat of Bobby Wilson. He left the game with his hand wrapped in a towel and did require stitches. It's unclear at this point how much time the right-hander may stand to miss.
May 21 - 10:24 PM

Athletics acquired RHP Edward Mujica from the Red Sox for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

He was designated for assignment on Thursday. Mujica never seemed comfortable in Boston, posting a disappointing 4.03 ERA across 75 appearances. Oakland's bullpen has been a disaster this year so taking a flyer on Mujica makes sense. A change of scenery could do the 31-year-old some good.
