TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have traded right-hander Jesse Chavez to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for cash.

The move was announced Friday before Toronto's game against the Orioles in Baltimore.

The 29-year-old Chavez split this season between Toronto and triple-A Las Vegas, appearing in nine games -- two starts -- for the Jays and posting a 1-1 record with an 8.44 ERA.

He's has a career record of 7-11 in 152 MLB games with an ERA of 5.74 while pitching for Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Kansas City and Toronto, which claimed him on waivers on Oct. 21, 2011.
