Trade: Denorfia to Oakland for 2 PTBNLs
The Reds traded outfielder Chris Denorfia to Oakland for two players to be named later and cash and cash. Denorfia, the 28-year-old outfielder, is coming off Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to play until October.
The deal was in works in spring training, Wayne Krivsky said, then Denorfia got hurt.
The A's called about two weeks ago and said they were still interested.
"We're hoping it's a win-win," Krivsky said. "Deno is tremendous individual with great makeup."
