Report: Oakland Athletics To Trade Rajai Davis To Blue Jays For Relief Pitcher Trystan Magnuson

Fox Sports reporter Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Toronto Blue Jays are on the verge of acquiring outfielder Rajai Davis from the Oakland Athletics. MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that the A’s will receive relief pitcher Trystan Magnuson from the Blue Jays.

Magnuson was a first round draft pick in the 2007 Amateur Draft and projects out as a middle reliever or setup man in the majors. He hasn’t made his way beyond AA to this point but will likely start the 2011 MLB season with the A’s AAA affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats. Magnuson spent 2010 with the Blue Jays AA affiliate, the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. In 46 relief appearances, Magnuson was 3-0 with a 2.58 ERA, a WHIP of 1.091 and a K/9 ratio of 7.7.

The A’s decision to deal Rajai Davis is not a big surprise. After the team picked up Coco Crisp’s option and then dealt for David DeJesus, the writing was on the wall. Davis is an excellent base-stealer, but the team has sufficient speed in Crisp and DeJesus brings better power numbers and consistency to the table.
