Oakland originally acquired Stevenson from the Tampa Bay Rays along with Christian Fernandez on July 9 of last season in exchange for Christian Bethancourt. He appeared in 23 games after the trade, but hit just .167/.261/.217 with a 47 wRC+. Stevenson started the season at Triple A Las Vegas where he was 8-for-23 with two doubles and seven runs scored in seven games.
Stevenson was designated for assignment to make room for Tyler Wade on the 40-man roster. The A’s have an abundance of outfield depth and that clearly worked against Stevenson at this juncture.
