It has been confirmed that the A’s will send Fautino De Los Santos to the Brewers in exchange for catcher George Kottaras of the Brewers.

After the Brewers signed Humberto Quintero Saturday night, that made Kottaras expendable.

After being waived by the Brewers Saturday, George Kottaras got traded to the Athletics, Saturday afternoon.

De Los Santos, 26, through 40 Major League games has an ERA of 4.21 ERA and is 3-2 in those games. In the minors this season he’s 1-3 through 28 games with a 7.25 ERA with 43 K’s.

The A’s will send Fautino De Los Santos to the Brew Crew, for George Kottaras.

Kottaras, 29, has a Major League line this season of .209/.409/.360 through 58 games.

De Los Santos is expected to report to the Brewers Triple-A affiliate as is Kottaras.
