  • 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.
    Ross was 2-11 with a 6.50 ERA in five stays with the A’s last season. The 25-year-old made 13 starts during his first four stints and later had five relief appearances in September with the AL West champions.
    The 24-year-old Kirby-Jones hit .248 with 21 home runs and 69 RBIs at Class A Stockton.
    Parrino, a 27-year-old switch-hitter, batted .207 with one home run and six RBIs in 55 games with San Diego. A Brockport native, Parrino was the 2007 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference player of the year at Le Moyne College; his sister, Allyn, was the most valuable player at the NJCAA’s 2011 Region III women’s lacrosse tournament after leading Monroe Community College to championship at Herkimer County Community College’s Wehrum Stadium.
    The 25-year-old Werner went 2-3 with a 5.58 ERA in eight starts for the Padres.
