Athletics To Designate Parrino, May Acquire Elmore

10:14am: Oakland may be acquiring infielder Jake Elmore from the White Sox, tweets Slusser. Elmore was designated by Chicago yesterday.

10:11am: The Athletics will soon announce that utilityman Andy Parrino has been designated for assignment, tweets Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. As Slusser notes, that means that a corresponding move is set to take place.

Parrino, 28, has seen 229 MLB plate appearances over the last three years with the A's and Padres. His cumulative line stands at a meager .186/.295/.242. Though he also struggled at the Triple-A level last year with Oakland, he had previously shown an ability to get on base and provide some pop at the upper tiers of the minors. Parrino's primary appeal, however, lies in his versatility: he has appeared at short, second, thirtd, and both corner outfield positions during his short big league tenure.

Werner/Parrino trade for Ross looking like a steal for Byrnes

Meh, a nothing trade of spare parts. Ross goes to another pitcher’s park in an easier league. He wan’t good enough to be a starter in Oakland. Just like Brad Peacock and a dozen others.

Drew’s not that good. The Boston media campaign to get the Red Sox a draft pick has overstated his qualifications.

Let’s just hope you’re wrong about that.

Drew had his chance with the A’s and choose to go. Beane will not give up a draft pick for him. drew is good but not great is why Boras is having a problem getting him a long term deal.
