    Well, that didn’t last long.

    Chiefland High School graduate and Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Cedrick Bowers was demoted to Triple A last week to make room for starter Dallas Braden.

    Bowers was called back up because Oakland placed starting pitcher Ben Sheets on the disabled list with a strained right elbow.

    Bowers reported to Sacramento to work on his approach against left-handed hitters.
