ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired outfielder David DeJesus from Washington just four days after the Nationals picked him up from the Chicago Cubs.
Washington will receive a player or cash considerations in the deal announced on Friday.
DeJesus is expected to join the Rays before they host the New York Yankees on Friday night. He was acquired by the Nationals on Monday and played in three road games with Washington this week.
In 87 games overall this season, DeJesus is batting .247 with six home runs and 27 RBIs.
