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.

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.
Feb 27 - 11:10 AM

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.

Athletics optioned INF Andy Parrino to Triple-A Sacramento.

Parrino had just three hits in 24 at-bats in his two weeks with the big club. He's being replaced on the roster by Adam Rosales.

A's recalled INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento.

Parrino will provide depth at multiple positions while the A's nurse a number of early-season injuries. He probably won't play enough to carry fantasy value.

The Athletics are expected to recall utility man Andy Parrino from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

The A's are short-handed at the moment due to the injuries to Scott Sizemore (knee) and Josh Reddick (wrist), so Parrino will provide some bench depth. The 27-year-old batted .207/.316/.276 with one home run and six RBI in 55 games with the A's last season.

Athletics optioned INF Andy Parrino to Triple-A Sacramento.

Parrino batted just .207/.316/.276 with one home run and six RBI in 55 games last season for the A's. The 27-year-old infield will function as organizational depth.

Athletics assistant general manager David Forst said new acquisition Andy Parrino is "definitely in the mix" for the starting job at shortstop.

Ultimately, the A's figure to either re-sign Stephen Drew or bring someone else in. But, as it stands right now, Parrino would compete with Adam Rosales, Eric Sogard and perhaps others. Parrino is good with the glove but has batted just .200/.319/.256 over 79 big league games.

Athletics acquired INF/OF Andy Parrino from the Padres in the Tyson Ross deal.

Parrino has batted .200/.319/.256 over 79 games the past two years for the Padres. He's pretty slick with the glove, though, and is versatile, having played 26 games at shortstop, 15 at second base, two at third base and one in right field in 2012. He should be able to win a bench job with the A's.

Padres recalled INF Andy Parrino from Triple-A Tucson.

Parrino batted just .174 with a .526 OPS in 40 games earlier this season with the Friars. The 26-year-old will serve as emergency infield depth down the stretch.

Padres activated INF Andy Parrino from the 15-day disabled list.

He had been out since late May with a wrist ailment. Parrino will provide depth at multiple infield positions and should see fairly regular time at shortstop.

Andy Parrino (wrist) made his first rehab appearance Friday for Triple-A Tucson.

He started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 in his first game since May 31. It's not clear how close Parrino is to returning, but he figures to be in the mix for semi-regular starts with Everth Cabrera.

Padres placed INF Andy Parrino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 31, with an injured right hand.

It's not clear at this point how long he'll be out. Everth Cabrera will start at shortstop, with Alexi Amarista and Logan Forsythe, who replaces Parrino on the roster, splitting time at second.

The Padres are planning on placing Andy Parrino on the DL and activated Logan Forsythe prior to Sunday's game.

According to Friarhood, Parrino injured his foot after Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks. He had been playing plenty of shortstop lately, but now Everth Cabrera will start there, with Alexi Amarista and Forsythe splitting time at second.
