Jerry Blevins struck out three of the four Mets he faced to close out Thursday's win.
It'll be interesting to see how Matt Williams uses his two left-handed relievers, considering that neither Blevins nor Ross Detwiler is any sort of traditional specialist. The team probably should have kept Xavier Cedeno for that role just to remove any temptation Williams might have to use Blevins or Detwiler for one batter a night. Mar 27 - 3:48 PM

Nationals avoided arbitration with LHP Jerry Blevins by agreeing to a one-year, $1.675 million contract.

Acquired from the A's this winter via trade, Blevins has a nice 2.81 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his last 153 2/3 innings.

Nationals acquired LHP Jerry Blevins from the Athletics for OF Billy Burns.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish was first to report word of the swap and now it has been confirmed by Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan. Blevins, 30, fills the Nationals' need for a left-handed reliever. He has a superb 2.81 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his last 153 2/3 innings. Burns is a 24-year-old outfielder with exciting speed, but he can't really be considered a prospect.

Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com reports that Jerry Blevins is on the Nationals' radar as a left-handed relief option.

Zuckerman also mentions Justin Wilson, which had previously been reported. The Nationals are also in on J.P. Howell, Boone Logan, Scott Downs and Oliver Perez as they attempt to bolster their left-handed relief. Blevins is due a raise in arbitration after making $1.1 million in 2013.

Jerry Blevins has posted a spectacular 1.99 ERA and 0.66 WHIP in 22 appearances.

In addition, he's 3-0 and has posted an amazing 20/1 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 frames. Owners in holds leagues should note that this veteran left-hander hasn't yet recorded one, but Blevins has proved over the last few years to be a decent middle reliever in AL-only leagues.

Athletics avoided arbitration with LHP Jerry Blevins by agreeing to a one-year contract.

The financial terms aren't available. Blevins, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, has posted a 2.97 ERA over the last three seasons for the A's. He'll be used as a lefty specialist again in 2013.

Jerry Blevins was mighty impressive on Tuesday night, pitching out of a major jam to preserve a one-run victory over the Angels.

The A's entered the ninth inning with a 6-3 lead, but Grant Balfour allowed a pair of runs to score and left runners at first and third with nobody out. Blevins inherited the dicey situation, and immediately got Kendrys Morales to strike out on four pitches. He then got Howie Kendrick to hit into a game-ending double play. It was Blevins' first save of the season and only the second of his career.

Athletics recalled LHP Jerry Blevins from Triple-A Sacramento.

Blevins, 27, has a 3.80 ERA and 20/14 K/BB ratio over 21 1/3 innings with the A's this season. He has bounced back and forth from the majors to the minors several times already, but should stick with the big club for the rest of the year.

Athletics optioned LHP Jerry Blevins to Triple-A Sacramento.

Blevins posted a disappointing 4.12 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings for the A's this year. He might be allowed to return to the majors at some point in September.

Athletics designated LHP Jerry Blevins for assignment.

Blevins, 27, has registered an ugly 4.12 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 19 2/3 innings this season. He's likely to pass through waivers and land back at Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics recalled LHP Jerry Blevins from Triple-A Sacramento.

Blevins has been up-and-down with the A's multiple times this season, posting a 3.93 ERA but 1.69 WHIP over 17 appearances. He'll operate in middle relief.
Fri, Aug 26, 2011 03:35:00 PM

Athletics sent LHP Jerry Blevins outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Blevins was designated for the third time this season on Tuesday. The 27-year-old will return to a 5.01 ERA but also a 27/6 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 Triple-A innings.

Athletics designated LHP Jerry Blevins for assignment.

It's the third time this season he's been designated, as a 3.93 ERA but 1.69 WHIP simply haven't been good enough for him to retain his roster spot. He cleared waivers and remained in the organization the first two times, so it stands to reason he'll be able to do so again.

Athletics recalled LHP Jerry Blevins from Triple-A Sacramento.
