According to reports, the Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays finalized a three-team trade on Friday.

Here’s how the deal went down:

Oakland acquires infielder Jurickson Profar from Texas.

Texas acquires infield prospect Eli White from Oakland, minor league pitcher Yoel Espinal and left-handers Brock Burke and Kyle Bird from Tampa Bay along with international bonus allotments

Tampa Bay acquires right-handed reliever Emilio Pagan and a Competitive Balance Round A selection from Oakland, pitching prospect

Rollie Lacy from Texas.

Profar, who is the centrepiece of the trade, has experience playing every infield position and provides above average power at the plate.

The 25-year old hit .254 with 20 homers, 77 RBI and a .793 OPS in 146 games last season.
