LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Oakland Athletics have acquired struggling right-hander Wilmer Font from the Los Angeles Dodgers for a minor league pitcher.

The trade was announced Wednesday, with the Dodgers getting lefty Logan Salow.

Font was 0-2 with an 11.32 ERA in six relief appearances for the Dodgers before he was designated for assignment on Monday. He pitched 10 1/3 innings and was tagged for five home runs, tied for the most among big league relievers.

The 27-year-old Font has pitched 14 games over parts of four seasons with Texas and the Dodgers.

The 23-year-old Salow was 2-0 with a 1.59 ERA in four relief appearances for Class A Beloit. He was a sixth-round draft pick in 2017 by the A’s.
