OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have traded right-hander Tyson Ross and minor league first baseman A.J. Kirby-Jones to the San Diego Padres for infielder Andy Parrino and left-hander Andrew Werner.

The deal was announced Friday.

Parrino, a 27-year-old switch-hitter, batted .207 with one home run and six RBIs in 55 games with San Diego.

The 25-year-old Werner went 2-3 with a 5.58 ERA in eight starts for the Padres.
