AP Sources: A's trade catcher Norris to Padres
The Associated Press
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Two people with knowledge of the deal say the Oakland Athletics have traded All-Star catcher Derek Norris and minor league right-hander Seth Streich to the San Diego Padres for righties Jesse Hahn and R.J. Alvarez along with an international signing bonus slot.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because neither team had announced the agreement. Both clubs have been busy in the trade market this offseason, and this week.
Norris, 25, batted .270 with 10 home runs and 55 RBIs in 127 games for the A's, who lost the wild-card game at Kansas City.
A's general manager Billy Beane made his second trade of the day, while San Diego has several pending swaps.
The New York Daily News first reported Norris was headed to the Padres.
