The Cincinnati Reds acquired veteran outfielder Austin Slater in a trade with the San Francisco Giants late Sunday night.

The Giants received left-hander Alex Young and cash considerations for Slater, who had been their longest-tenured player.

Slater, 31, batted just .200 with one homer and nine RBIs in 43 games this season while platooning with Mike Yastrzemski.

Slater is a career .254 hitter with 39 home runs and 162 RBIs in 593 games over eight seasons with the Giants, who drafted him in the eighth round in 2014.

Young, 30, allowed no runs on four hits in three relief appearances this season for Cincinnati. He previously pitched for the Giants in 2022.

Young is 16-18 with a 4.40 ERA in 163 games (25 starts) with the Arizona Diamondbacks (2019-21), Cleveland Guardians (2021-22), Giants and Reds.
