Tolleson Man Out for Thome, A's Claim Him

Story via the Star Tribune

The Oakland Athletics on Monday claimed infielder Steven Tolleson off waivers from the Twins. The Twins tried to get Tolleson through waivers to clear space on their 40-man roster to add desiginated hitter Jim Thome, who could officially sign as soon as Tuesday.

Hitting .270 with 6 homers as a 26 year old in AAA, while simultaneously moving more to the outfield from the infield made Tolleson expendable.
