They now have 10 days to trade him and given his minimal salary ($2.9 million), I could see some trading for him as a backup catcher.

Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge walked in his first plate appearance but struck out in his next three. How did Athletics pitchers get him out? They started with a first-pitch strike each time (curve, slider, fastball respectively). Only 5 of the 14 pitches in those 3 AB were fastballs. He never saw 2 in a row. All 3 put away pitches were in the lower-third of the strike zone or below.
