A's trade Wells to White Sox for cash considerations


OAKLAND -- The A's traded outfielder Casper Wells to the White Sox on Monday evening in exchange for cash considerations.

It was just a week ago the A's gave away cash to the Blue Jays to acquire Wells, who was hitless in five at-bats with Oakland before he was designated for assignment -- for the third time by as many teams in a month -- on Sunday.

Wells was previously designated by the Mariners on the last day of Spring Training. He was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on April 10 and never appeared in a game with them before again being designated five days later.

Oakland acquired his services for outfield depth while Yoenis Cespedes was stationed on the disabled list, but there was simply no room for him on the roster once Cespedes returned Sunday.
