Well, that didn’t last long.
Chiefland High School graduate and Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Cedrick Bowers was demoted to Triple A last week to make room for starter Dallas Braden.
But last Sunday, only a few days after he was shipped down, he was recalled to the A’s roster and sent back to the bullpen.
Bowers was called back up because Oakland placed starting pitcher Ben Sheets on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.
Bowers reported to Sacramento to work on his approach against left-handed hitters.
