Outfielder Trayce Thompson might soon be playing pro baseball in the same city where his brother Klay plays pro basketball.

Thompson, who hit.225 with 13 home runs and 32 RBIs over 80 games in 2016 but appeared in just 27 games for Los Angeles previous year, is the brother of the Golden State Warriors' Klay Thompson.

The A's claimed Trayce Thompson - Klay's brother - off waivers from the Yankees, the team announced on Thursday morning.

"I talked to him just a little bit before I came out here and he's really excited".

Trayce, 27, is in his third Major League Baseball season and holds a career batting average of.233 with 19 home runs and 50 RBIs between the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He's actually in [Los Angeles] right now at his parents' house so it'll work out well.

Two days after joining the Yankees on a waiver claim from the Los Angeles Dodgers, the outfielder has moved on.

He will join the team in Anahiem on Friday for the start of a three-game series against the Angels. In 2016, Thompson hit 13 homers with 32 RBIs in 80 games for the Dodgers before his season was cut short due to a back injury.

Right-hander Paul Blackburn was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.
