Athletics trade C Norris to Padres

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The revamping Oakland Athletics made yet another trade of a star player this offseason, sending catcher Derek Norris and minor league right-hander Seth Streich to the San Diego Padres on Thursday night for righties Jesse Hahn and R.J. Alvarez along with an international signing bonus slot.

San Diego's been busy, too. At about the same time they wrapped up the deal with the A's, the Padres finalized a trade to acquire outfielder Matt Kemp from the division rival Los Angeles Dodgers.

Norris, a 25-year-old All-Star, batted .270 with 10 home runs and 55 RBIs in 127 games for the A's, who lost 9-8 in the wild-card game at Kansas City. Oakland had depth at catcher, with capable backstops John Jaso and Stephen Vogt still on the roster despite both dealing with injuries last season. Jaso ended the year out with a concussion for the second straight season.
