The Oakland Athletics optioned left-hander Jesus Luzardo to Triple-A, the club announced Monday.

Luzardo owns a 6.87 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over 38 innings (six starts) for the Athletics this season.

The 23-year-old has had a rough campaign on and off the field. In early May, he landed on the injured list after breaking his finger while playing a video game.

Luzardo was the No. 18-ranked prospect in 2019, according to MLB Pipeline.

The team called up right-hander Domingo Acevedo to fill Luzardo's spot on the active major-league roster.
