OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Athletics have completed their trade with Baltimore that brought closer Jim Johnson to Oakland by sending minor league catcher David Freitas to the Orioles as the player to be named.
Infielder Jemile Weeks also went to Baltimore in last week’s swap.
Freitas batted .231 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs in 90 games between Triple-A Sacramento and Double-A Midland this year.
Also Thursday, the A’s outrighted left-handed pitcher Andrew Werner to Triple-A Sacramento. He had been designated for assignment Dec. 4 and cleared waivers Thursday.
