Nationals acquire Ian Krol

USA TODAY Sports

The three-team trade that sent Mike Morse to the Mariners is now complete, as the Athletics have sent their player to be named later to D.C.

The three-team, January trade that sent Michael Morse to the Mariners, John Jaso to the A's, and a few prospects to the Nats is now complete. The Oakland Athletics have sent left-hander Ian Krol to the Nationals as their player to be named later in the deal, the team has announced.

More Nationals: Nats' Geo Gone Wild

Krol, 21, is the third and final prospect that the Nats received from Oakland in the deal. Young right-handers A.J. Cole -- who was traded to Oakland for Gio Gonzalez the year before -- and Blake Treinen were sent to Washington when the trade was originally agreed to on January 16.

A seventh-round pick out of Naperville, Illinois, in the 2009 Draft, Krol has spent the last two-plus seasons in the A's minor-league system. The southpaw has posted solid K and BB numbers in his two full seasons of pro ball, but seemed to develop a penchant for giving up the long ball last year.

Krol pitched in High-A and Double-A ball in 2012. The left-hander posted a not-great 5.20 ERA in 97 innings, but complemented it with 8.3 strikeouts and 2.4 walks per nine, suggesting that his high earned-run average last year may not an indication of his true talent.
