Jeff Samardzija allowed two runs on five hits, including a home run, and a walk with three strikeouts over seven innings of the no-decision against the Rays Monday.

Like his counterpart Jason Hammel, who came over in the trade with the Cubs, Samardzija has had his struggles, albeit not as rough as Hammel, but definitely not to the overly liking of A's fans nor his fantasy owners. Monday's outing was not horrible, but considering he only struck out three batters and had allowed three-plus runs in three of his first five starts with his new club coming into Monday's outing he is surely meeting very few peoples' early expectations since the trade. Luckily for him, his next start on Saturday is a very favorable one at home against the Twins.
