OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -The Oakland Athletics acquired outfielder Chris Denorfia from the Cincinnati Reds on Friday in a trade for two players to be named later and cash considerations.
While the A's could use an extra body in their injury-depleted outfield, it won't be the 26-year-old Denorfia. He had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow April 3 after tearing a ligament during an exhibition game March 23.
Denorfia went on the 15-day disabled list March 24, then was transferred to the 60-day DL on April 13. He will be moved to the A's 60-day DL.
Denorfia was batting .264 with one home run and six RBIs in 20 games with Cincinnati this spring before the injury. He made his major league debut in 2005 with the Reds, who selected him in the 19th round of the 2002 draft.
