Athletics Place Pitcher on IL; Recall Pitcher Claimed Off Waivers Last Week

The Oakland Athletics have placed pitcher Adam Oller on the 15-day injured list with right rib costochondritis. 

In a corresponding move, the team has recalled pitcher Tyler Cyr. 
It's not yet clear if Oller will be ready in time to return before the end of the season. The twenty-seven-year-old rookie has posted an ugly 6.01 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, and 44 strikeouts over 73 innings.
