In the deal between the White Sox and Athletics, Oakland will receive cash considerations or a player to be named later.

Saladino has only had eight at-bats at the MLB level this season. In order to add Saladino to their roster, Milwaukee has designated right-handed pitcher Alec Asher for assignment.

The 28-year-old Saladino had .250 batting average with two runs and three strikeouts in those eight at-bats in six games. He last played against the Athletics on Wednesday, April 18th, when he scored a run.

In four seasons with the White Sox, Saladino appeared in 246 games. He had .231 batting average with 12 home runs and 68 RBIs in 863 plate appearances.

He played in a career-high 93 games with the White Sox in 2016. In his career season, he had .282 batting average with 8 home runs and 38 RBIs in 319 plate appearances.

The 27-year-old Thompson returns to the White Sox, where he played in 2015. This season in three games with the A’s, he had .143 batting average with one hit and one run in seven at-bats.

Thompson has appeared in just 30 games over the past two seasons thus far.
