A's Claim Harikkala, Waive Saarloos

From the AP... Oct 6, 7:01 PM (ET)

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics claimed right-hander Tim Harikkala off waivers from the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday and designated right-hander Kirk Saarloos for assignment.

Harikkala went 6-6 with a 4.74 ERA in 55 relief appearances this season for Colorado. The A's are the sixth organization Harikkala has been in since being drafted by Seattle in 1992.

He has a career record of 7-8 with a 5.83 ERA in 74 appearances.

Saarloos, acquired by Oakland on April 16 in a trade with Houston, was 2-1 with a 4.44 ERA in six appearances. He was placed on the disabled list July 30 with a bone spur in his right elbow and didn't return for the rest of the season.
