The little-known right-hander yielded two unearned runs and three hits while striking out five in Oakland's 4-2 victory over the Rangers.
Analysis: If Triggs is still available in your league, he may be worth a pickup. The 27-year-old is holding opposing hitters to a .169 average and has yet to permit an earned run in 17 2/3 innings. He'll make another start at the pitcher-friendly Coliseum Sunday against Seattle.
