Tyson Ross optioned, Ross Wolf in

Just a day after Tyson Ross got an article in the Wall Street Journal (well worth reading, about how he lives at home), the A's made it moot by optioning him to Sacramento. He was a valuable member of the bullpen in the beginning of the season but struggled the past two months and the A's want him to go back to being a starting pitcher. This is the right move --- if Ross is just gonna be a mop-up man for a mediocre team, better try to extract more value out of him if possible.

Wolf was acquired from Baltimore for Jake Fox, and has had a very solid year in AAA, with a 1.99 ERA and a 2:1 K:BB ratio, including 7 solid appearances for Sacramento since being acquired.
