Oakland Athletics Sign Former Cardinals Pitcher

The Oakland Athletics have made a move by signing Seth Elledge, a right-handed reliever previously with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Originally drafted by the Seattle Mariners in 2017, Elledge brings a mix of major league experience and potential for growth to his new team.
Despite encountering challenges in recent seasons, including consistency issues and a fluctuating ERA, Elledge's journey through various minor league organizations has prepared him for this opportunity with the Athletics.

At 27 years old, Elledge still has time to refine his skills and make his mark in the majors.

Over his two seasons in the MLB, Elledge holds a 4.63 ERA, 1.67 WHIP, with 25 strikeouts across 23.1 innings and 23 appearances.

His recent stint in Triple-A may not have yielded the desired results, but the Athletics recognize the latent potential within his skill set. Assigned to the Arizona Complex League, Elledge will have the chance to fine-tune his mechanics and explore new pitch variations under the guidance of Oakland's coaching staff.

For his minor-league career, Elledge holds a 4.20 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, with 358 strikeouts over 287 innings and 226 appearances.

With a focus on providing opportunities based on merit, Oakland offers him a supportive platform to showcase his abilities and work towards a return to the big leagues. Photo Credit: Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports
