Rivalry renewal on diamond turns into dud

Texas A&M starter Daniel Mengden delivers a pitch in the 2014 Houston Regional against Texas at Reckling Park.

OAKLAND, Calif. — Oakland Athletics right-hander Daniel Mengden underwent surgery on his pitching elbow on Monday.

The A’s said Mengden had arthroscopic surgery to shave a small spur off his elbow. The team gave no timetable for Mengden’s return.

Mengden, who played at Texas A&M from 2012-14, was 5-2 with a save and a 4.83 ERA in 13 games, including nine starts, over three stints with Oakland last year.
