Blue Jays optioned RHP Trystan Magnuson to Double-A New Hampshire.

Not a surprise. Magnuson, who was reacquired by the Blue Jays in November, posted a 6.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14-plus innings with the A's last season and had a 2.98 ERA and 46/19 K/BB ratio over 45 1/3 innings as a reliever with Triple-A Sacramento.

Blue Jays acquired RHP Trystan Magnuson from the Athletics for cash considerations.

It was nearly a year ago that Magnuson was dealt from the Jays to the A's. Oakland designated him for assignment on Wednesday, and Toronto jumped at the opportunity to get him back in the organization. He posted a 6.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14-plus innings for the A's this season but held a 2.98 ERA while striking out a batter per inning at Triple-A.

Athletics designated RHP Trystan Magnuson for assignment.

Magnuson posted a 6.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14-plus innings for the A's this season. He ran into some shoulder tendinitis in early August but should be fine for 2012.
Wed, Nov 2, 2011 06:58:00 PM

Athletics transferred RHP Trystan Magnuson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

In other words, he's done for the season. Magnuson posted a 6.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14-plus innings this year for the A's before going down with shoulder tendinitis.

Athletics placed RHP Trystan Magnuson on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis.

Magnuson has posted a 6.14 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 14 2/3 innings with the A's this season. The 26-year-old right-hander should be healthy again in three weeks.

Athletics recalled RHP Trystan Magnuson from Triple-A Sacramento.

Magnuson was tried out earlier this season but allowed six earned runs in just 6 1/3 major league innings. He should fare better in a mid-relief role this time around.
Wed, Jul 27, 2011 05:23:00 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Trystan Magnuson to Triple-A Sacramento.

Magnuson threw 47 pitches over 3 1/3 innings of relief on Thursday, so it's unlikely he would have been available over the next two days. He has an 8.53 ERA and 5/1 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 innings with the big club this season.

Athletics recalled RHP Trystan Magnuson from Triple-A Sacramento.

He'll replace the injured Grant Balfour on the active roster. Magnuson made two appearances with the big club in May, but has spent most of the season at the Triple-A level, posting a 2.78 ERA and 37/17 K/BB ratio over 35 2/3 innings. Look for him in middle relief.

Athletics optioned RHP Trystan Magnuson to Triple-A Sacramento.

Magnuson gets the boot after being pounded for six runs over two innings Thursday against the Twins. The 25-year-old right-hander made just two appearances during his brief stay with the big club.
Fri, May 20, 2011 04:23:00 PM

Trystan Magnuson gave up six runs in two innings out of the pen Thursday versus the Twins.

That's more runs than the Twins score some weeks. It was just Magnusson's second appearance since he was summoned from the minors eight days ago. Perhaps he deserves a longer look, but we'd rather see the A's give Joey Devine a chance.

Athletics recalled RHP Trystan Magnuson from Triple-A Sacramento.

Magnuson was acquired from the Blue Jays along with right-hander Daniel Farquhar in the Rajai Davis trade last November. The 25-year-old right-hander had a 1.56 ERA and 19/9 K/BB ratio over his first 17 1/3 innings of with the River Cats this season. He'll pitch in middle relief.

Athletics acquired RHP Trystan Magnuson and RHP Daniel Farquhar from the Blue Jays for OF Rajai Davis.

Magnuson, 25, turned in a 2.38 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 73 1/3 innings at the Double-A level this past season and is headed toward a career as a reliable big league setup man. He was selected 56th overall in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft and is a native of Vancouver, British Columbia.

According to Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors, the A's will get right-hander Trystan Magnuson from the Blue Jays for outfielder Rajai Davis.

It sounds like the trade could be completed within the hour. Magnuson, 25, registered a solid 2.58 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 73 1/3 innings this year at Double-A and projects as a quality setup man. He's likely to kick off the 2011 season with the A's Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento, California.
