MESA, Ariz. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics designated Brandon Moss for assignment Sunday and claimed left-hander Jairo Labourt off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds.

Oakland had acquired Moss from Kansas City in January for a second stint with the club after playing for the A’s from 2012-14, but it wound up being a short return.

Moss played in 118 games for the Royals last season.

Labourt had been claimed off waivers by the Reds on Friday from Detroit. He made six relief appearances for the Tigers last season, going 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in six innings.
