Hatcher was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Monday, Julian McWilliams of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher was dropped from the team's 40-man roster in order to free up space for younger players in need of protection from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The veteran right-hander posted a 4.95 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 30:17 K:BB across 36.1 innings of relief for the A's in 2018.

Hatcher allowed three runs on three hits in the ninth inning to blow the save Sunday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher entered the inning with a 4-2 lead and proceeded to find trouble right from the beginning. After allowing a lead-off single to Shohei Ohtani, Jefrey Marte beat Hatcher for a double. Taylor Ward capped off the disastrous outing with a two-run walkoff home run. This marked Hatcher's second appearance since Sept. 4. It doesn't seem likely that he will make the postseason roster.

Hatcher had his contract selected by the Athletics on Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher was designated for assignment by the Athletics in early August after posting a mediocre 4.24 ERA over 34 innings. The 33-year-old should take on a low-leverage role out of the Athletics bullpen for the final month of the regular season.

Hatcher was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher was designated for assignment on Friday, and after making through waivers, he'll head down to the minor leagues. He owns a 4.24 ERA and 1.65 WHIP with 28 strikeouts through 34 innings out of the bullpen with the Athletics this season, so he figures to serve as a September callup when rosters expand.

Hatcher was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher was removed from the roster to make room for Fernando Rodney. He has a mediocre 4.24 ERA in 34 innings this season, with uninspiring strikeout and walk rates (18.0 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively).

Hatcher has fired four scoreless innings across three June appearances, allowing three hits and four walks while recording five strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old right-hander went a full 12 days (May 31-June 11) without seeing any action, and he subsequently went another six between appearances this month until being called upon in Wednesday's win over the Padres. Hatcher has actually proven reliable of late after a rough start to the season, as he's generated scoreless efforts in eight of his last nine appearances overall. He's in line for the occasional decision as a middle reliever, but his fantasy value remains heavily limited to very deep formats.

Hatcher (3-2) allowed an earned run on three hits over two frames in an extra-innings loss to the Rays on Monday. He also recorded two strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher certainly wasn't bad during his time on the mound, but he did surrender the go-ahead single to Mallex Smith in top half of the 13th, saddling him with the loss. The 33-year-old right-hander saw a four-appearance scoreless streak snapped with Monday's stumble, he retains an impressive 1.46 ERA across 12.1 May innings overall.

Hatcher fired two scoreless innings in Thursday's win over the Mariners, allowing two hits and recording a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

After spot starter Josh Lucas worked up to 52 pitches in just two innings, Hatcher came in and gave manager Bob Melvin a pair of valuable frames. The 33-year-old right-hander has seemingly turned it around in May after a rough April in which he generated an 11.37 ERA over eight trips to the mound. Hatcher has allowed just one earned run in the 10.1 innings spanning his seven outings this month, and he's demonstrated his versatility by working multiple innings in three of those appearances.

Hatcher (3-1) allowed an earned run on two hits and two walks over 1.2 innings in an extra-innings loss to the Yankees on Saturday. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

Hatcher worked himself into trouble after retiring Didi Gregorius on an inning-opening flyball, issuing a walk to Giancarlo Stanton, who moved to second on a fielder's choice. A second free pass -- issued to Aaron Hicks -- set up a game-winning single by Neil Walker. It's the second straight rocky outing for the veteran reliever, who'd also allowed three unearned runs over three innings against the Astros in his previous time on the mound.

Hatcher allowed two unearned runs on three hits and a walk over three innings in a loss to the Astros on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After starter Brett Anderson survived just three-plus frames, Hatcher came on to serve to eat up some innings for manager Bob Melvin. His one hiccup came on the two-run home run he allowed to Marwin Gonzalez, but he was largely effective otherwise. The veteran right-hander got off to a rocky start but has settled down to an extent, lowering his ERA from 11.12 to 6.55 by allowing just one earned run over the 6.1 innings encompassing his last five appearances.
