(The Sports Xchange) - The Oakland A’s acquired slugger Adam Dunn from the Chicago White Sox.
The White Sox received minor league pitcher Nolan Sanburn and unspecified cash considerations in exchange for Dunn.
The A’s will pay about half of the remaining $2.5 million owed to Dunn this season, according to ESPN.
Dunn, 34, has 460 career home runs and is in the final year of his four-year, $56 million contract with Chicago.
Dunn is batting .220 with a .340 on-base percentage, 20 home runs and 54 RBIs.
The Cincinnati Reds traded right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton to the Milwaukee Brewers for two players to be named later.
Broxton, 30, has a 1.86 ERA with seven saves in 48 1/3 innings this season. He also has six blown saves.
Broxton, a two-time All-Star, is signed through next season with a club option for 2016. He is set to make $9 million in 2015.
The Brewers might have lost more than just a game. Standout center fielder Carlos Gomez exited with pain in his left wrist after a third-inning at-bat.
X-rays were negative, but Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is not expecting Gomez in the lineup for at least part of his club’s series against the Chicago Cubs that begins Monday.
“He needs to get checked out in Chicago or in Milwaukee,” Roenicke said.
The Cleveland Indians recalled right-handed pitcher Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus and placed right-hander Josh Tomlin on the paternity list.
McAllister, 26, is 3-6 with a 5.91 ERA over 14 starts in four previous stints with Cleveland this year. He is 7-1 with a 2.09 ERA in 11 starts with Columbus.
The Miami Marlins sent minor league right-hander Chaz Roe to the New York Yankees for cash. Roe was 3-3 with a 3.66 ERA for Triple-A New Orleans.

Los Angeles Angels right-hander Cory Rasmus was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake, one day after throwing three scoreless innings in a start against the A‘s.
Rasmus was sent down because he was not available to pitch Sunday and it allowed the Angels to add a player to their bench, activating infielder Grant Green from the disabled list.

The Tigers will call up outfielder Tyler Collins (Triple-A Toledo), outfielder Steven Moya (Double-A Erie) and infielder Hernan Perez (Triple-A Toledo) Monday, when rosters expand.
They plan to recall left-hander Robbie Ray (Triple-A Toledo), left-hander Kyle Lobstein (Triple-A Charlotte) and catcher James McCann (Triple-A Toledo) on Tuesday.
Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was out of the lineup after being elbowed in the head and experiencing concussion-like symptoms attempting to tag Tampa Bay’s Logan Forsythe at second base on Saturday.
