Brewers trade OF Khris Davis to Athletics for 2 prospects

The Milwaukee Brewers have traded power-hitting outfielder Khris Davis to the Oakland Athletics for a pair of prospects.

Milwaukee acquired catcher Jacob Nottingham and right-handed pitcher Bubba Derby in the deal Friday. The A's and Brewers each won only 68 games last year.

The 28-year-old Davis hit 27 home runs last season, 10th-most in the National League, and he batted .247 with 66 RBIs in 121 games. Davis is not eligible for free agency until after the 2019 season.

Davis has played exclusively in left field during his three seasons in the majors.

The A's have used switch-hitting veteran Coco Crisp and slick-fielding Sam Fuld in left.
