Another day, another deal for the Oakland A’s. This time it’s left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins hitting the road to join the Washington Nationals’ bullpen in exchange for minor league outfielder Billy Burns. Oakland’s trade for fellow left-handed reliever Fernando Abad last month probably helped make Blevins expendable. Abad is younger and cheaper than Blevins which is always an attractive combination to the small-budget A’s.
