A's acquire Ben Zobrist, Yunel Escobar from Rays
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Athletics have acquired infielders Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar from the Rays in exchange for catcher John Jaso and two prospects and cash, both clubs announced Saturday. The two prospects include shortstop Daniel Robertson and outfielder Boog Powell.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle first reported the trade, and CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirmed the deal.

Zobrist, a two-time All Star, is coming off a season in which he hit .272/.354/.395 over 570 at-bats. He is entering the final year of his contract, and is due $7.5 million next season. Escobar, 32, hit 258/.324/.340 with seven homers and 39 RBI over 476 at-bats in 2014. He is expected to earn $5 million this season and $7 million in 2016, with a club option for 2017 at $7 million with a $1 million buyout.

The move will likely turn recently acquired Marcus Semien into an "everyday super utility player," Slusser said.
