    Kyle Blanks headed from San Diego to Oakland

    The Padres have traded former top hitting prospect Kyle Blanks to Oakland for minor league outfielder Jake Goebbert and a player to be named, a source has told the San Diego Union-Tribune. The 27-year-old first baseman, who was optioned by San Diego to the minors Tuesday, managed two hits in 10 at-bats this season. He has thrived at the minor-league level, but owns just a mediocre career stat line of .228/.310/.401 in the majors. But he has nine home runs and 20 RBI in just 83 at-bats with El Paso this season. The Athletics are hoping a change of scenery will spur Blanks to fulfill his potential.

    Astros cut down roster

    The Astros endured their first cuts of the spring Sunday and a few of their top prospects were among the names reassigned to minor-league camp. Players reassigned Sunday were Delino DeShields Jr., Jake Goebbert, Marc Krauss, George Springer, Chris Wallace, Rudy Owens and Sam Demel. Owens is one player on the Astros' radar for a potential promotion in 2013. "The important thing for players like DeShields and Springer, who are a part of our future, was to come up here and make a good impression with a new staff and both of them absolutely did that," Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said, per MLB.com. "Goebbert has been a part of our minor league system for a while and made a good impression, and Krauss had some big hits for us. The message to all those guys basically is you accomplished what your goal was this spring, you came up here and made a good impression on the staff. For all those guys, they did exactly what we wanted them to do."
