CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs have acquired catcher Anthony Recker from the Oakland Athletics in exchange for catcher and first baseman Blake Lalli.

Recker was a member of Oakland's opening day roster but was sent to Triple-A Sacramento after hitting .129 in 31 at-bats over 13 games. Recker has hit .146 in 18 big league games overall, while he's put up a .273 average with 98 homers in eight seasons in the minors.

The Cubs assigned Recker to Triple-A Iowa.

Lalli made his major league debut for Chicago earlier this season, his seventh in professional baseball. He went 2 for 15 in six games for the Cubs before being sent down to Iowa.

The Cubs also designated left-hander Scott Maine for assignment.
