Jake Diekman: Club option declined by A's

The Athletics have declined southpaw Jake Diekman's $4 million club option, instead paying him $700,000 in the form of a buyout.

Fantasy Impact

Diekman has looked solid over the last two seasons, posting a 0.42 ERA in 2020 and a 12.31 percent strikeout rate in 2021. Although the reliever's time with the A's is coming to an end, he should warrant significant interest from teams in free agency.

Jake Diekman earns the save Thursday

Jake Diekman earned the save Thursday against Houston, working around a hit to toss a scoreless inning.

Fantasy Impact

It was the seventh save on the season for Diekman. It had seemed like Lou Trivino had taken full control of the closer role, but Diekman got that opportunity Thursday afternoon. Trivino should still be viewed as the closer in Oakland's bullpen, but this is a situation worth monitoring.
