Three A's from the same trade celebrated clinching a postseason berth with a great photo
On December 9, 2014, the White Sox acquired Jeff Samardzija and Minor Leaguer Michael Ynoa from the Athletics in exchange for four players: right-hander Chris Bassitt, catcher Josh Phegley, shortstop Marcus Semien, and Minor League first baseman Rangel Ravelo. Ravelo is currently in the Cardinals organization, but the other three young White Sox players traded have played varying roles for the A's over the last few years.
