The non-waiver trade deadline passed more than a week ago, but the Oakland Athletics completed on Thursday their third trade of the week as they attempt to lock down the second wild card in the American League. This time, the A's acquired Fernando Rodney from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for minor leaguer Dakota Chalmers, the teams announced.

Rodney entered Thursday with a 3.09 ERA in 46 appearances this season. His 2.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio is the highest mark he's posted since 2014.
