Athletics acquire OF Piscotty from Cardinals

(TSX / STATS) -- The Oakland Athletics acquired outfielder Stephen Piscotty from the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday for minor league infielders Yairo Munoz and Max Schrock.

Piscotty batted .235 with nine homers and 39 RBIs in 107 games last season with the Cardinals. He is signed to a six-year, $33.5 million contract through the 2022 season.

The trade also brings the 26-year-old Bay Area native and Stanford star closer to home. Piscotty missed time last season to spend with his family after his mother, Gretchen, was diagnosed with ALS.
