Two days after designating him for assignment, the Oakland Athletics traded outfielder Jaycob Brugman to the Baltimore Orioles for cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Brugman, the A’s 2013 17th-round pick, made his major-league debut with the A’s in 2017, appearing in 48 games. He hit .266/.346/.343 for the A’s. Brugman will remain on the Orioles 40-man roster.
In other organization news, MLB announced on Tuesday that A’s minor league left-hander Kevin Duchene was suspended for a third violation of baseball’s substance of abuse policy. Duchene asked for and was granted his release from the A’s organization. The University of Illinois product struggled with injuries and missed time with suspensions during his three years in the A’s organization. He was a fifth-round pick in 2015. Duchene appeared in two games for the AZL A’s this season after recovering from shoulder surgery. He recently participated in the A’s fall Instructional League.
