Athletics sent INF Andy Parrino outright to Triple-A Sacramento.

Parrino was designated for assignment last week, but he's cleared waivers and will remain in the organization. He'll serve as infield depth.

Athletics designated INF Andy Parrino for assignment.

Parrino became the odd man out after the A's acquired Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar from the Rays on Saturday. There's a chance that the 29-year-old could clear waivers and return to Triple-A Sacramento.
Jan 10 - 2:55 PM

Andy Parrino blasted his first home run of the season on Sunday, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Angels offensive onslaught on Sunday.

It was just the second home run of his big league career, the other coming as a member of the Padres during the 2012 campaign. Parrino, who is seeing time at shortstop with Jed Lowrie on the shelf, finished the night 2-for-4, and is now hitting .207/.273/.414 with three RBI in his limited time with the A’s.

Athletics recalled INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento.

He'll replace the injured Jed Lowrie (finger) on the active roster and figures to receive significant playing time at shortstop in the short-term. The 28-year-old was batting .286/.363/.404 with seven home runs and 52 RBI in 90 games this season in Triple-A. He's worth picking up in AL-only fantasy leagues.

A's manager Bob Melvin strongly hinted Thursday that Andy Parrino is being called up to the majors.

Jed Lowrie is headed to the disabled list with a hairline fracture in his right index finger and Parrino is in line to take over as Oakland's primary shortstop. The 28-year-old Parrino has posted a cool .286/.363/.404 batting line with seven home runs and 52 RBI in 90 games this season for Triple-A Sacramento and could carry value down the stretch in mixed fantasy formats given the scarcity of productive shortstops.

Athletics optioned INF Andy Parrino to Triple-A Sacramento.

He picked up two hits in six at-bats during his brief stint with the big club. The A's are expected to activate Josh Reddick from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game to take Parrino's spot on the roster.

Athletics optioned INF Andy Parrino to Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics claimed INF Andy Parrino off waivers from the Rangers and optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

The Rangers originally claimed Parrino off waivers from the Athletics in early March, but designated him for assignment on Friday. The Athletics put in a waiver claim and got him back. In 59 plate appearances at Triple-A Round Rock, Parrino hit a disappointing .189.

Rangers designated INF Andy Parrino for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Aaron Poreda. Parrino will have the option of becoming a free agent if he clears waivers.

Rangers claimed INF Andy Parrino off waivers from the Athletics.

Parrino was designated for assignment by the A's last week. He struggled in a few stints with Oakland in 2013 and seems doubtful to crack the Rangers' Opening Day roster. The 28-year-old infielder is a .186/.295/.242 career hitter in 229 major league plate appearances.
Mon, Mar 3, 2014 02:46:00 PM

Athletics designated INF Andy Parrino for assignment.

Parrino batted .118/.167/.176 in 36 plate appearances last season for the A's. The 28-year-old utility infielder seems likely to pass through waivers unclaimed.

Athletics recalled INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento.

Parrino is much better with the glove than he is with the stick, as evidenced by his .210/.300/.302 line through 108 games at Triple-A this season. He'll provide depth and versatility on the bench for the A's as they drive towards the postseason.
