Athletics acquire OF Piscotty from Cardinals

Dec 15, 2017 - 5:45 AM 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.

Munoz, 22, batted .300 with 13 homers and 68 RBIs in 112 games split between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Nashville last season.

Schrock, 23, hit .321 with seven homers and 46 RBIs in 106 games last season at Midland.
