A's recall Mazzaro, option Tolleson

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Vin Mazzaro has been recalled by the Oakland Athletics from Triple-A Sacramento to start against the Texas Rangers.

The right-hander was 1-1 with a 2.59 ERA in five game, four starts, with the RiverCats. He was 4-9 with a 5.32 ERA in 17 starts last year for Oakland and missed most of September with right shoulder tendinitis.

The A's optioned infielder Steve Tolleson to Sacramento on Tuesday to make room for Mazzaro. Tolleson appeared in three games with Oakland, going 1-for-4.
