Ex-A’s starter A.J. Griffin off to excellent start for Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas - Former A’s starter A.J. Griffin is putting together a nice start to the season, going 4-0 with a 2.45 ERA in five starts, and he faces Oakland in the series finale Sunday. “I’m attacking guys, I’m getting ahead - I’m trying to keep things simple,” he said Saturday, adding that he has fixed some delivery issues that had led him to open up too much with his front shoulder. No red meat, fish or shellfish, among other things, said Griffin, who primarily is eating chicken and vegetables. The right-hander is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA against the A’s in two starts.
