Gregerson, Smith traded in ever-busy day for A’s

The A’s are pulling off yet another deal on Tuesday afternoon, with outfielder Seth Smith heading to San Diego in exchange for reliever Luke Gregerson. Chris Kusiolek reported it first, and the teams made it official around 4:45 p.m. ET. 

This move certainly strengthens the A’s already-sturdy bullpen ahead of newly-acquired closer Jim Johnson. Gregerson has held an ERA under 3.00 each of the last three seasons with the Padres. Smith hit .246 with 22 homers and 92 RBIs over the last two seasons (242 games) with the A’s. The Oakland outfield was becoming crowded after the acquisition of Craig Gentry from Texas today.
