OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have traded right-hander Arnold Leon to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash.

The teams announced the deal Tuesday. Leon had been designated for assignment last week when Oakland finalized its contract with Henderson Alvarez.

Leon made his big league debut with the A's last year and was 0-2 with a 4.39 ERA in 19 games over six separate stints in the majors. The 27-year-old was also 2-5 with a save and a 2.95 ERA in 20 games at Triple-A Nashville.
