The Oakland A’s trade second baseman Joey Wendle to the Tampa Bay Rays for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Wendle was designated for assignment late last week when the A’s officially signed Yusmeiro Petit.
Wendle hit .285/.327/.429 with eight homers and 13 stolen bases in 113 games for the Triple-A Nashville Sounds this season. Wendle also hit .308 with a home run and five RBI in eight games with the A’s in September.
Acquired for Brandon Moss from Cleveland before the 2015 season, Wendle hit .285 with 30 homers and a franchise-record 102 doubles in three seasons for the Sounds.
The A’s are now owed two players to be named later (or cash). Oakland also acquired a PTBNL from the Orioles for Jaycob Brugman.
