Graham Godfrey, who began the season as the Oakland A's fourth starter, was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday and scheduled to start for the A's in Tuesday night's game against the Angels.
To make room, the A's sent pitcher Pedro Figueroa to Sacramento.
The right-handed Godfrey lost each of his three starts with the A's, and he had a 5.06 ERA before being sent to the Sacramento River Cats on April 21. He went 3-0 with a 1.21 ERA in five starts with the River Cats.
Figueroa had a 2.00 ERA in eight appearances with the A's.
