Dodgers trade LHP T.J. McFarland to Athletics

T.J. McFarland

The Oakland Athletics acquired left-hander T.J. McFarland from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday for cash.

Oakland placed the 34-year-old McFarland on its 40-day roster.

McFarland didn’t make the Los Angeles roster despite compiling a 1.35 ERA in seven spring training games. He was signed to a minor league contract in January.

McFarland only pitched in three big league games for the New York Mets last season. He also made 44 appearances at the Triple-A level, splitting time between Syracuse (23 appearances) for the Mets’ organization and Norfolk (21 games), the latter an affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles.

This will be McFarland’s second stint with the Athletics. He went 2-0 with a 4.35 ERA in 23 appearances for Oakland in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.

Overall, McFarland is 24-16 with a 4.14 ERA in 354 appearances (three starts) with the Orioles (2013-16), Arizona Diamondbacks (2017-19), Athletics, St. Louis Cardinals (2021-22) and Mets.

The Athletics open the regular season against the visiting Cleveland Guardians on Thursday night.
