May 13, 2019

SEATTLE (AP) — The Oakland Athletics have designated slugger Kendrys Morales for assignment and activated Mark Canha from the 10-day injured list.

Morales was acquired from Toronto on March 27. The 13-year major league veteran appeared in 34 games and hit .204 with one home run and seven RBIs with the A’s. Morales is in the final year of a $33 million, three-year deal and is due $12 million this season.

Canha was added to the roster ahead of Monday’s series opener in Seattle and was in the starting lineup in left field. Canha had been on the injured list since April 29 with a sprained right wrist. He appeared in two games with Triple-A Las Vegas last weekend on a rehab assignment.

Canha appeared in 18 games and is hitting .200 with two home runs and four RBIs.
