ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Speedy outfielder Rajai Davis has been acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays from the Oakland Athletics for a pair of minor leaguers in the second trade of the general managers’ meetings.

Oakland last week acquired outfielder David DeJesus from Kansas, making Davis superfluous. The A’s obtained right-handers Trystan Magnuson and Daniel Farquhar in Wednesday’s deal.

The 30-year-old Davis hit .284 this year with five homers, 52 RBIs and 50 stolen bases, down from a .305 average in 2009. In five major league seasons that included stints with Pittsburgh and San Francisco, he has a .281 average, 12 homers and 143 stolen bases.

Magnuson, 25, was 3-0 with a 2.58 ERA in 46 relief outings for Double-A New Hampshire. Farquhar, 23, was 4-3 with 17 saves and a 3.52 ERA for New Hampshire.

Toronto also said right-hander Shawn Hill cleared unconditional release waivers, becoming a free agent.

On Tuesday, two-time All-Star second baseman Dan Uggla was dealt from the Florida Marlins to the Atlanta Braves for infielder Omar Infante and left-hander Mike Dunn.
