SAN DIEGO (AP) - Right-hander Jeff Samardzija has been traded from Oakland to the Chicago White Sox, the third major player dealt by the Athletics during an offseason roster purge.

Right-hander Michael Ynoa also was sent to the White Sox in Tuesday's deal. Oakland obtained right-hander Chris Bassitt, catcher Josh Phegley and infielders Rangel Ravelo and Marcus Semien.

On Monday, the White Sox agreed to a $46 million, four-year contract with closer David Robertson, a person familiar with the deal said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the agreement had not been announced.

Since the end of the season, Oakland also has traded third baseman Josh Donaldson to Toronto and first baseman/outfielder Brandon Moss to Cleveland.
