Elvis Andrus to Oakland for Khris Davis, per reports

MLB Trade Rumors: Elvis Andrus is heading to the Oakland A’s for Khris Davis, per Ken Rosenthal on Twitter. The Texas Rangers would be sending their (by far) longest-tenured player, and the last link to the World Series teams, to the A’s in a swap of bad contracts. Per Jeff Passan, the A’s are getting another player in the deal, and the Rangers are getting Jonah Heim and Dane Acker in return. The Rangers are apparently sending cash in this deal.

Elvis, who has $28 million still due on his current deal, with a $15 million vesting option for 2023 that is guaranteed if he is traded, also has 10-5 rights, so he presumably has already agreed to waive his no trade clause, and I suspect is also waiving the right to have the final year of his deal guaranteed as part of this trade. The A’s have been in the market for a shortstop, with Marcus Semien signing elsewhere, and thus gives Elvis the chance to once again be the everyday shortstop for what is potentially a contending team, rather than having a bench role on a rebuilding club.
