Padres' Jared Koenig: Inks MiLB deal with San Diego
Koenig signed a minor-league contract Tuesday with the Padres.
Koenig was non-tendered by the Athletics back in November after posting an ugly 5.72 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 22:15 K:BB over his first 39.1 major-league innings last season. The 29-year-old southpaw will function as organizational pitching depth for San Diego in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Jared Koenig: Non-tendered by Oakland
The A's declined to tender Koenig a contract for 2023.
The lefty tried to get by with finesse last season -- he notched just 22 strikeouts in 39.1 innings in the majors -- but the results were ugly. Koenig spent a lot of time in independent ball and is almost 29 years old. His big-league future is hazy.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jared Koenig: Called up Friday
Koenig was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday.
Koenig was sent down by the Athletics at the end of August, and he posted a 9.28 ERA and 1.87 WHIP in 10.2 innings over three appearances following his demotion. In spite of his lackluster performance, he'll rejoin the major-league club after Sam Moll (shoulder) was placed on the injured list Friday. Koenig has served as a starter in five of his six big-league appearances this year but will likely be a multi-inning option out of the Athletics' bullpen for now.... See More ... See Less

Athletics' Jared Koenig: Bound for Triple-A
The Athletics optioned Koenig to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday.
Koenig wasn't going to be available for Sunday's series finale in Houston after starting and taking the loss while covering seven innings Saturday, so Oakland opted to send him down to the minors. Adam Oller was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move and will pick up the start Sunday. One of Oller or Koenig should have a good chance at sticking around as Oakland's No. 5 starter coming out of the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less

It took only 86 pitches for the 28-year-old rookie southpaw to get through a career-high seven frames, though the lefty has pitched fewer than five innings in three of his other four starts on the campaign. In limited action, Koenig has posted a 6.39 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 13 strikeouts in 25.1 innings across five starts.... See More ... See Less

Koenig (0-2) was charged with the loss Tuesday in Boston after surrendering six runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks across four innings.
The 28-year-old generated only six swinging strikes on 96 pitches (60 strikes), and the big blow against him was Rafael Devers' three-run homer during the third inning. Koenig has now given up 10 runs on 14 hits over eight frames in his first two big-league starts, and it remains to be seen if he'll receive another turn through the starting rotation for Oakland....

Koenig (0-1) allowed four earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against Atlanta.

He began the appearance with three scoreless innings, though things unraveled in the fifth frame when he allowed a walk, double and triple prior to being yanked.
