Nationals trade Kurt Suzuki back to A's
In a do-over of the 2012 trade, the Athletics have reportedly reacquired catcher Kurt Suzuki from Washington.
The Nationals have traded catcher Kurt Suzuki to the Athletics, the A's announced. The Nats, of course, originally acquired Suzuki from the A's in a trade last season. Amanda Comak of the Washington Times, who first reported the deal, says Washington will receive a low-level pitching prospect in return.
Suzuki, age 29, is batting .223/.284/.311 with three home runs in 78 games this season. For his career, he owns an OPS+ of 86 across parts of seven major-league seasons.
With starter John Jaso out indefinitely with lingering concussion symptoms, the A's are in need of help at the catcher position.
