Oakland A’s podcast with Jerry Feitelberg: How A’s outfield shapes up after Pache trade to Phillies

Cristain Pache made some great defensive plays for the A’s during his time in the outfield but just couldn’t hit for average and was dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wed Mar 29, 2023 for right hand pitcher Billy Sullivan (file photo USA Today)

On the A’s podcast with Jerry F:

#1 Jerry, how surprised were you at the trade of Cristian Pache who came on the scene as the A’s centerfielder. The A’s had so many big hopes for Pache in center but his hitting suffered so he was dealt to the Philadelphia Phillies for right hander Billy Sullivan. How do you see this trade.

#2 Pache was out of minor league options and he was designated for assignment and was exposed to waivers and the Phillies grabbed him. There must have been something that he had going that made the Phillies get him on Wednesday.

#3 The A’s will keep outfielders Brent Rooker and Conner Capel both players have minor league options. Capel hit 13 for 35 and hit .371 in 13 game. Rooker 28, has played in 81 MLB games and has been with three MLB teams.

#4 Carlos Perez will be the A’s back up catch to starting catcher Shea Langeliers. A’s manager Mark Kotsay said that Perez 32 signed a minor league deal last week. Perez knows his way around the A’s system playing for them in 2020 and 2021.

#5 A’s open up the 2023 season against the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels are going with their ace Shotime Shohei Ohtani and he’ll be opposed by the Oakland A’s left hand pitcher Kyle Muller. Jerry tell us how you see this match up tonight at the Coliseum.
