#Athletics recall RHP Aaron Brooks from Nashville; designate LHP Eric O’Flaherty for assignment
— Oakland Athletics (@Athletics) August 1, 2015
O’Flaherty was once one of the most promising left-handed relievers in the game, but has struggled to get on track this season. The 30-year-old has posted a 5.91 ERA in 21 1/3 innings and this has by far been the worst season of his career. He spent time on the disabled list earlier this year and that may have something to do with his struggles. The A’s will still owe O’Flaherty for the remainder of his $5.5 million salary this season.
