OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Oakland Athletics optioned left-hander Gio Gonzalez, infielders Daric Barton, Cliff Pennington and Jack Hannahan and outfielder Chris Denorfia to Triple-A Sacramento after Saturday's 3-2 win over San Francisco.

The A's, who open their season against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim on Monday night, finalized their 25-man roster by officially adding pitchers Brett Anderson, Andrew Bailey and Trevor Cahill.

Oakland's projected opening day starter Justin Duchscherer and right-hander Joey Devine, expected to share the closer's role with Brad Ziegler, will open the season on the disabled list along with Rule 5 outfielder Ben Copeland.
