 PITTSBURGH (AP) -Chris Denorfia, an outfielder expected to miss this season after reconstructive right elbow surgery earlier this month, was traded Friday by the Cincinnati Reds to Oakland for cash and two players to be named.
Denorfia, a 19th-round draft pick by Cincinnati in 2002, hit .278 with two homers and nine RBIS in 77 games the last two seasons.
The 26-year-old Denorfia, the Reds' minor league player of the year in 2005, had surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow on April 3. He was moved from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list on April 13.
