Athletics place Braden and Devine on 15-day DL

The Oakland Athletics placed pitchers Dallas Braden and Joey Devine on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 24, on Tuesday.

Braden, who is still recovering from left shoulder surgery, made three starts for the A's last season before suffering the injury. The 28-year-old lefty had a 1-1 record with a 3.00 earned run average in those starts, striking out 15 batters while walking five through 18 innings on the mound.

Devine made 26 appearances out of the bullpen for Oakland last year, finishing with a 1-1 record and a 3.52 ERA. He is currently suffering from right biceps tendinitis.
