CHICAGO -- The White Sox acquired outfielder Michael Taylor from Oakland, as announced Saturday by the team, in exchange for Minor League right-handed hurler Jake Sanchez. Taylor will report to Triple-A Charlotte.

Taylor, 28, is a right-handed outfielder who has 74 at-bats and 26 games of big league experience with the A's, batting .135 with one homer and one RBI. Taylor has a .289 average, 102 homers and 104 stolen bases over 3,053 Minor League at-bats as part of the Phillies and A's systems after being selected by Philadelphia in the fifth round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft.

This trade marks the fourth Minor League move made in the last week by the White Sox, following the additions of right-handed pitchers Shawn Hill and Henry Rodriguez, as well as outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo.
