Goebbert, a 26-year-old former 13th-round pick, was batting .257/.371/.505 with six home runs and 25 RBI in 31 games this season at Triple-A Sacramento. He could make a contribution in San Diego at some point this year but is doubtful to ever become a good major league regular.

Athletics acquired OF Jake Goebbert from the Astros in exchanged for LHP Travis Blackley.

Goebbert is a former 13th-round pick that's put up a .285/.363/.431 over four minor league seasons. He can play all three outfield positions but doesn't have much power or speed. The A's will probably be thrilled if he winds up being a decent extra outfielder.
