OAKLAND, Calif. — The Oakland Athletics selected left-handed pitcher Jared Koenig from Triple-A Las Vegas and optioned right-handed pitcher Domingo Tapia to Las Vegas, the club announced today.

The 28-year-old left-hander will be making his Major League debut after two seasons in the A’s farm system and three years in independent ball. Koenig was 22-10 with a 3.41 ERA in 49 games, 47 starts, with teams in the Pecos, American Association, Pacific Association and Frontier Leagues before signing with the A’s as a free agent on Jan. 14, 2020. He is 11-7 with a 2.94 ERA in 33 games, including 29 starts, in two seasons in the minors with Oakland.
