  • ARLINGTON, Texas — Athletics right-hander A.J. Griffin is scheduled to have elbow surgery today, and will miss the entire season with fellow third-year starter Jarrod Parker.
    Parker, who had been expected to be Oakland's opening day starter, had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow during spring training.
    Griffin will have the surgery after getting a second opinion Tuesday from Dr. Thomas Mehlhoff in Houston.
    Parker and Griffin combined for 26 victories last season. Griffin was 14-10 with a 3.83 ERA last season after making his major league debut in 2012 going 7-1 with a 3.06 ERA in 15 starts for the A's. Parker went 13-8 in 2012, and was 12-8 last season.
