A's release RHP Casilla five days after DFA
The Oakland Athletics released right-handed reliever Santiago Casilla on Thursday, five days after he was designated for assignment.
Casilla, who turns 38 on Wednesday, had a 3.16 ERA in 26 appearances this season, but he had struggled with his command. He walked 20 batters, hit four more and threw four wild pitches in 31 1/3 innings of work.
He is 42-31 with a 3.29 ERA in 655 career games, all in relief with the A's and San Francisco Giants.
