OAKLAND -- The Oakland A’s acquired outfielder Ryan LaMarre from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations, the club announced Sunday.

LaMarre will report to Triple-A Nashville. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the A’s transferred right-handed pitcher Chris Bassitt to the 60-day disabled list.

LaMarre was batting .268 with seven RBI, six walks and four stolen bases in 10 games at Triple-A Salt Lake when he was designated for assignment on Tuesday. He was signed by the Angels as a free agent following the 2016 season and has a .267 average with 46 home runs, 222 RBI and 160 stolen bases in 656 games in the minors over eight seasons in the Cincinnati (2010-15), Boston (2016) and Angels (2017) farm systems.

The 28-year-old right-handed hitter made his Major League debut with the Reds in 2015 and also appeared in five games with the Red Sox last year.  LaMarre is 2-for-30 (.067) in 26 games over his two seasons in the majors.
