The Oakland Athletics are trading middle-infield prospect Jorge Mateo to the San Diego Padres in exchange for a player to be named later, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

Oakland originally acquired Mateo from the New York Yankees along with outfielder Dustin Fowler and right-handed pitcher James Kaprielian in the Sonny Gray trade midway through the 2017 season.

Mateo authored a .289/.330/.504 slash line with 19 homers and 24 stolen bases over 119 Triple-A games last year. The 25-year-old was on the Athletics' 60-man roster.

Entering 2018, Mateo was considered the No. 72 prospect in baseball, according to MLB Pipeline, and ranked as highly as No. 30 prior to the 2016 season.

A's Manaea might wear mask during games, wants to 'zazz' it up .
Sean Manaea is putting safety first on the diamond. The Oakland Athletics left-hander will consider wearing a mask on the mound once the season gets going. "I don't really know if we're required to wear it on the field," Manaea said, according to Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle. "But I might as well try it out, just to see what it's like." Manaea wore a mask during his throwing drills in Oakland on Sunday. If he does don the extra safety gear during games, he'll try and make sure it stands out."I saw a couple of guys wear the neck (masks) and I thought that was pretty cool," he said, according to Martin Gallegos of MLB.com.
