May struggled to start the season allowing 10 hits and eight runs in six innings before going on the injured list with anxiety issues on April 19. May recently completed a rehab appearance with Las Vegas where he allowed four hits and two runs in 3 2/3 innings.
Muller was Oakland’s Opening Day starter and allowed just three earned runs combined over his first two starts (10 2/3 innings). Since then, he has allowed 39 runs in just 36 1/3 innings over his next eight starts. He has 19 walks and 25 strikeouts during that span. He has allowed at least five earned runs in four straight starts.
