Oakland trades Hannahan to Seattle
Hannahan hit .193 with one homer and eight RBIs in 52 games with Oakland before being demoted to Triple-A Sacramento.
Souza, 6-6 with a 3.35 ERA in 20 games with Double-A West Tenn, will join the Athletics' Midland Double-A team
Oakland manager Bob Geren said Hannahan gave the Athletics everything he had and is happy the 29-year old will get another chance to play in the majors.
