  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Will start year in MLB

    Oller (illness) has been informed he's made the Opening Day roster, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Oller will be a part of the A's to begin the season, but the role that he'll have is undefined at this point. Oakland is also planning to carry JP Sears, but Athletics manager Mark Kotsay says the team won't name a fifth starter at this point. It's possible that Oller will be a rotation option, but the right-hander also could be working out of the bullpen in 2023. He's expected to be ready for the start of the season after being scratched Saturday because of symptoms of vertigo.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Battling vertigo

    Oller was supposed to pitch Saturday against the Brewers but was held out due to experiencing symptoms of vertigo, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    The timing of the issue means that Oller is potentially at risk for a trip to the injured list if it persists, but if he gets back on the mound in the next few days, he should be fine. He's recorded a 3.68 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 14.2 innings this spring.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Putting together impressive spring

    Oller has generated a 1.86 ERA and 10:4 K:BB across 9.2 innings in three Cactus League appearances (two starts).

    Oller has pitched to some contact -- he's allowed eight hits, including a solo home run -- but his most recent appearance saw him shut out the Dodgers on two hits over four innings while racking up seven strikeouts. The right-hander was frequently hit hard as a 27-year-old rookie last season, posting a 2-8 record, 6.30 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across 74.1 innings over 19 appearances (14 starts). However, with the starting rotation seemingly set, Oller appears ticketed for a long-relief role if he does open the season with the big-league club.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Takes eighth loss

    Oller (2-8) took the loss while serving as the opener versus the Mariners on Saturday, allowing three earned runs on three hits, two walks and a wild pitch over one inning. He struck out two.

    Oller had just come off the injured list Friday, and his first game action since Sept. 3 certainly didn't serve as a soft landing. The right-hander slogged through a 36-pitch opening frame during which he allowed RBI singles to Carlos Santana and Sam Haggerty that drove home three total runs. Oller's rocky outing was a shorter version of his last start before going on the IL, when he'd yielded six runs on eight hits, including four home runs, to the Orioles. It remains to be seen if Oller will get a chance to make at least one more appearance during the final days of the regular season and head into the offseason with some momentum.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Reinstated from injured list

    Oller (ribs) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    After being placed on the IL with rib costochondritis Sept. 6, Oller is officially healthy enough to help the Athletics close out the season. He will take the spot of Collin Wiles on the roster, who was placed on the injured list Friday with a strained right shoulder.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Serving as opener Saturday

    Oller will serve as an opener during Saturday's game against the Mariners, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Oller was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday after missing nearly a month due to rib costochondritis. While he likely won't be built up to a full workload, he'll begin Saturday's game on the mound while JP Sears presumably serves as a bulk reliever.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Could return by Friday

    Oller (ribs) has a chance to return from the injured list by Friday, the Associated Press reports.

    The right-hander faced live hitters Monday at the A's complex in Arizona without any apparent setbacks. Oller has been on the injured list since Sept. 6, but with the minor-league season coming to an end as well, the team may opt to simply have Oller return without any rehab outings.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Friday bullpen scheduled

    Oller (ribs) is slated to throw a bullpen session Friday, the Associated Press reports.

    Oller began a throwing progression Tuesday, and he's apparently ready to throw off a mound Friday as his next step. Manager Mark Kotsay noted the right-hander will be "on track to be ready to go if everything goes well", seemingly giving Oller, who's already eligible for activation from the IL, a chance to return before the end of the regular season.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Begins throwing Tuesday

    Oller (ribs) began his throwing progression Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Oller has been held out of action since being placed on the injured list Sept. 6, but he has officially begun the journey back. If all goes well, there is still a chance that Oller returns to Oakland's rotation before the end of the season.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Placed on injured list

    Oller was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with right rib costochondritis, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Oller has given up nine earned runs over his last three starts, and now things get worse for him as he finds himself on the injured list. He is eligible to return starting Sept. 21.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Crushed by Orioles

    Oller (2-7) took the loss Saturday versus the Orioles, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts in five innings.

    Oller allowed all six runs via four of the Orioles' five home runs in the contest. Ryan Mountcastle had a pair of two-run blasts while Cedric Mullins and Anthony Santander added solo shots. Oller had gone five outings since he last allowed multiple homers. The dismal start raised his ERA to 6.01 with a 1.57 WHIP and 44:37 K:BB through 73.1 innings across 18 appearances (13 starts). Oakland appears set to roll with a six-man rotation, with Oller expected to draw a home start versus the White Sox next weekend.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Shuts down Yankees

    Oller registered a no-decision during Saturday's 3-2 win against the Yankees, allowing one hit and one walk with three strikeouts across eight scoreless innings.

    Oller submitted the best start of his short career by far in allowing only three baserunners and facing the minimum 24 batters thanks to a double play, pickoff and caught stealing. The 27-year-old fired 65 of 88 pitches for strikes with 10 of the swinging variety and got ahead often with first-pitch strikes to 19 of 24 batters. The excellent start lowers Oller's ERA and WHIP to 5.66 and 1.52 respectively, and he's scheduled to take the mound again next weekend in Baltimore.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Tosses quality start but takes loss

    Oller (2-6) took the loss against Miami on Monday, allowing three runs on five hits and five walks while striking out two batters over six innings.

    Oller was in trouble for much of his outing -- he allowed at least one baserunner in each of his first five innings before finally retiring the side in order in the sixth -- but he did relatively well in holding the Marlins to three runs. However, Edward Cabrera tossed a gem for Miami, and Oller was therefore stuck with the loss. The Oakland right-hander continued a recent trend of issuing too many free passes, as his five walks were a season high and marked the third time in his past four outings he has walked at least three batters. Oller does have consecutive quality starts for the first time this season, but he'll need to show better control to win games consistently.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Earns win with quality start

    Oller (2-5) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on five hits and one walk over six innings against the Rangers. He struck out four.

    Oller cruised through six innings on just 77 pitches, as Texas could not get much going against him. The quality start is Oller's first on the season and is a welcome sight after he allowed a combined 16 runs over his previous 25.1 innings. He'll carry a 6.63 ERA into his next start, which figures to be next week against the Marlins.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Walks three in no-decision

    Oller gave up two earned runs on five hits and three walks over 4.2 innings in a 7-5 loss to the Astros on Friday. He struck out two and did not factor into the decision.

    Oller came into the fifth having only given up one run, but he was not able to make it out of inning. He was pulled after 78 pitches and the runner he left on base came in to score on a Kyle Tucker grand slam off reliever Sam Moll three batters later. Oller has struggled so far in his rookie season. He has an ERA of 7.26 and a WHIP of 1.78 over nine starts and 14 appearances. Oller's batted-ball metrics are some of the worst in the majors so there is no sign that his fortunes are about to turn around. The 27-year-old right-hander is expected to take the mound next week at Texas.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Tagged for four runs in loss

    Oller (1-5) gave up four earned runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out one over five-plus innings to take the loss in a 7-3 defeat against the Giants on Saturday.

    Oller came into the game on the heels of a six-strikeout performance, but he took a step backward by giving up four runs and striking out only one batter. The rookie right-hander got himself into trouble early by issuing three free passes in the first inning, including one that resulted in a run. He later gave up a two-run blast in the sixth inning before being pulled without recording an out in the frame. Oller's xSLG and xERA/xwOBA are in the lowest percentile of all pitchers according to Baseball Savant, and he wears an ERA of 7.63 in 13 appearances this season.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Gives up four in loss

    Oller gave up four earned runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out six over 6.1 innings to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat against the White Sox on Sunday.

    Oller managed six strikeouts against the White Sox but he received little run support and is stuck at one win on the season despite making seven starts. The silver lining for Oller is that the outing was his best start of the year and his ERA has now dropped slightly to 7.68. The 27-year-old right hander will look to build some momentum in his next start which tentatively lines up for Sunday versus the Giants.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Records first big-league win

    Oller (1-3) earned the victory over Houston on Monday, pitching five-plus innings and allowing four runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out four batters.

    Oller gave up a run in the first inning on a solo homer by Jeremy Pena, but he settled down and held Houston scoreless in the following three frames. The Astros added another run against him in the fifth and put the first two runners on base against him in the sixth, at which point Oller was pulled. Though those two runners eventually came around to score, the right-hander got enough support from his offense to end up with the first win of his major-league career. Oller's ERA still sits at an unappealing 8.07 on the campaign, and it's unclear if his so-so start Monday will enable him to keep his tenuous spot in the rotation.

  • Athletics' Adam Oller: Picking up sixth start of season

    Oller is scheduled to start Monday's home game against the Astros.

    Oakland inserted Oller into the rotation for its final game before the All-Star break July 17 in Houston, with the rookie allowing three earned runs across 4.1 innings in a no-decision. The right-hander enters Monday's contest with an 8.56 ERA and 1.98 WHIP across 27.1 innings on the season, so he may need a respectable showing in his rematch with the Astros to ensure he picks up additional turns in the rotation. Oakland has fellow pitching prospects Adrian Martinez, Jared Koenig and Zach Logue waiting in the wings at Triple-A Las Vegas as potential replacements in the rotation if Oller can't get the job done.
