Ross Stripling is moving from one side of The Bay to the other.

On Friday, the Oakland A’s announced they’ve acquired Stripling and cash considerations from the San Francisco Giants for minor league outfielder Jonah Cox. The Athletics also announced they’ve signed former Giants pitcher Alex Wood to a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old pitcher started 11 games for the Giants last season, played in 22 total and closed out the season with an 0-5 record and a 5.35 ERA.

“He struck out 70 and walked just 16 in 89.0 innings, an average of 1.62 walks per nine innings,” the A’s said in a press release, adding Ross Stripling is “38-43 with a 3.96 ERA in 226 games, including 115 starts, in eight seasons in the majors with Los Angeles-NL (2016-20), Toronto (2020-22) and San Francisco (2023). Stripling was an All-Star in 2018, has four years of postseason experience and is averaging 2.07 walks per nine innings in his career.”

Alex Wood had a slightly better 2023 with the Giants, going 5-5 with a 4.33 ERA in 29 games and 12 starts.

“The 33-year-old left-hander went 23-21 with a 4.41 ERA in 81 games, including 64 starts, in three seasons with San Francisco. Wood made his Major League debut with Atlanta in 2013 and has pitched 11 seasons in the majors, all in the National League,” the A’s said in a press release. “He played for the Braves from 2013-15, the Dodgers from 2015-18 and 2020, the Reds in 2019 and the Giants from 2021-23. Wood is 76-65 with a 3.74 ERA in 269 career appearances, including 202 starts, and has reached postseason play seven times in his 11 seasons. He was a member of the 2020 World Champion Dodgers and a National League All-Star in 2017.”
