Juan was moved off the 40-man roster Sunday to clear a spot for Ramon Laureano, who was reinstated from the restricted list after completing the 80-game suspension he initially received last August.

He split time between Single-A Stockton and High-A Lansing in 2021 and had spent the entire 2022 campaign on the 7-day injured list due to an unspecified issue.... See More ... See Less

The transaction frees up room on the 40-man roster for outfielder Ramon Laureano (suspension), who was reinstated from the restricted list ahead of his season debut in Sunday's game against the Twins. Juan, a 23-year-old right-hander who signed with the Athletics in 2017, has yet to pitch above the High-A level and has lost some of his prospect luster since Oakland chose to protect him from the Rule 5 draft over the winter. He has yet to make his 2022 debut after the Athletics opted to hold him back at extended spring training for an unspecified reason.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jorge Juan: In extended spring training
Juan was held back in extended spring training for an unspecified reason, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.
Given that Juan only logged 26.2 innings across Low-A and High-A last year, he wasn't going to be able to handle a full season's worth of starts this year, so the A's may simply be delaying his start to the season.... See More ... See Less
