The Blue Jays announced that they acquired Trystan Magnuson from the A's for cash. Toronto sent Magnuson to Oakland in last offseason's Rajai Davis trade and the A's designated him for assignment earlier this week.
Magnuson made his MLB debut in 2011, posting a 6.14 ERA with 6.8 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9 in 14 2/3 innings with Oakland. The 26-year-old British Columbia native also posted a 2.98 ERA with 9.1 K/9 and 3.8 BB/9 in 45 1/3 innings at Triple-A. He didn't pitch in a game after the A's placed him on the 15-day DL with right shoulder tendinitis in mid-August. Danny Farquhar, the other player sent to Oakland in the Davis trade, is back with the Blue Jays as well.
