Graveman’s vast improvement since minors stint


Oakland A’s rookie starter Kendall Graveman struggled in April after ascending to through the Toronto Blue Jays’ minor league system in a single season, doing well after being called up in September and having an amazing spring training after being traded to the Athletics as part of the move that sent All-Star third baseman Josh Donaldson to Toronto.

Then out of nowhere, after having no troubles at all and making it into the A’s starting rotation, Graveman’s ERA skyrocketed in his first four starts. He was sent down to Triple-A Nashville for the month of May. Upon his return Graveman has vastly improved and returned to the form he was known for with the Blue Jays and during spring training with the A’s.
