The Oakland Athletics have struck a deal to bring Washington Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki back to his former team, multiple sources told the San Francisco Chronicle in a report late Thursday night.

Though the trade has not been announced, the Chronicle reported that Suzuki is expected to be on the A's roster for Friday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. Suzuki, who was traded by the A's to the Nationals last year, would fill a void left after John Jaso went on the disabled list with a concussion and Derek Norris' broke his toe Tuesday. The A's still have catcher Stephen Vogt available.

The 29-year-old Suzuki is batting .222 with three home runs and 25 RBIs in 79 games this season.
