Description: Athletics pitcher Travis Blackley has been moved to the bullpen to make room in the rotation for Dan Straily, a 23-year-old right-hander who will make his major league debut Friday against Toronto.
Insight: Blackley pitched well as a member of the rotation, going 3-3 with a 3.62 ERA in 10 starts, but the A's clearly want someone in the rotation with more upside than the 29-year-old Australian can offer.

Description: Athletics starter Travis Blackley was excellent Tuesday against Toronto, going seven innings and holding the Blue Jays to one run on five hits.
Insight: Blackley (3-2, 2.69) struck out a season-high eight Tuesday. The lefty has posted a solid 46/13 K/BB in 68 2/3 innings this season and deserves consideration in deeper leagues.

Description: Athletics starter Travis Blackley held the Dodgers to one run on three hits in eight innings Thursday. He walked none and struck out six in a no decision.
Insight: Blackley has made five starts since joining Oakland's rotation at the end of May. The lefty lowered his ERA to 3.15 with Thursday's performance, though as a starter he is 1-2 with a 3.81 ERA. The 29-year-old Australian doesn't have much upside but you can use him against weaker offenses.

Description: The Mets signed Blackley to a minor league contract on Thursday.
Insight: Blackley will be invited to Spring Training but he has not pitched in the majors since 2007 when he had two appearances with the Giants. (SportsBuff.com)
