Athletics To Acquire Kevin Kouzmanoff

By Tim Dierkes [January 15, 2010 at 5:57pm CST]

The Athletics have reached an agreement with the Padres to acquire third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff and a minor leaguer for outfielder Aaron Cunningham and another player, MLBTR has learned from a source close to the Padres. The players still need to pass physicals. We first heard the A's would be giving up Gio Gonzalez, but Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle instead tweets that Scott Hairston will go back to the Padres in the trade.

Kouzmanoff, 28, hit .255/.302/.420 in 573 plate appearances for the Padres last year. He's arbitration-eligible for the first time. His glovework grades out as slightly above average, according to UZR/150.

Cunningham, 24 in April, spent most of '09 at Triple A where he hit .302/.372/.479. This is Cunningham's third time being dealt.


I think that the Orioles could have pulled off this type of trade and could have gotten Kouzmanoff. I think that he would have been a good 3B for the team.
