Relief prospect Billy Sullivan goes to the A's in the swap for the 24-year-old outfielder. Pache failed to make the A's roster despite hitting .302 with a solid .781 OPS across 43 spring contests. A plus defender, Pache has struggled to a .156 average with four homers, two steals, and a .439 OPS across 115 big-league games. The out-of-options Pache will presumably be on the Phillies' Opening Day roster to begin the season.
