Trayce Thompson is going back to where it all started for him.
The A's traded the 27-year-old outfielder to the White Sox on Thursday evening for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Thompson was drafted in the second round of the 2009 MLB Draft by Chicago.
Thompson's time in the same city his brother Klay plays in was short. He was claimed off waivers by the A's on April 5, got seven at-bats in three games and was designated for assignment on Tuesday.
During his brief stint with the A's, Thompson made a play that will likely be on the team's year-end highlight reel. Playing against the Dodgers, his former team, Thompson raced back to the center field wall in Dodger Stadium and robbed Yasiel Puig of a home run. Klay was pretty jacked up about the play.
In addition to trading Thompson, the A's also optioned reliever Lou Trivino back to Triple-A Nashville.
