He also held opponents to a .218 batting average against while possessing a 5.60 strikeout-to-walk ratio against left-handed batters in particular.

Blevins was 13-6 with a 3.30 ERA over the course of his career with the A's, while averaging 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings.

Burns, meanwhile, was a 32nd round pick of the Nats in 2011 and last year swiped a career-high 74 bases in 121 games between Single-A Potomac and Double-A Harrisburg.
