CBSSports.com wire reports

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics have traded right-hander Trystan Magnuson to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash.

The A's also announced Friday they agreed to minor-league deals with right-hander Edgar Gonzalez and infielder Wes Timmons and will invite them to spring training.

Magnuson made his major-league debut with Oakland last season and had no decisions and a 6.14 ERA in nine relief appearances. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Aug. 18 with right shoulder tendinitis and missed the remainder of the season.

Gonzalez is 14-25 with a 5.90 ERA in 107 career appearances for Arizona, Oakland and Colorado. He pitched mostly in the minors last season.

Timmons batted .341 with eight homers and 62 RBI at Triple-A and Double-A for Oakland last season.
