Samardz, er, Shark Makes Debut for A’s

“Samardzija” isn’t one of those names that just rolls off the tongue.

So, suffice it to say, the O.co Coliseum crowd had a little bit of difficulty welcoming their new pitcher when he made his debut Sunday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays.


The Oakland A’s acquired Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Chicago Cubs in exchange for minor leaguers Addison Russell, Billy McKinney and Dan Straily on Friday.
