Trade deadline roundup: A’s send Tommy Milone to Twins for Sam Fuld; David Price trade talks reportedly intensify

In a move that was overshadowed by the Red Sox‘ trade of Jon Lester to the Athletics, the Twins acquired left-handed starter Tommy Milone from Oakland in exchange for New Hampshire native Sam Fuld. Milone, a 27-year-old lefty, lost his spot in the A’s rotation when the team acquired the services of Jeff Samardzija and […]

Reactions to Yoenis Cespedes trade

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser What a stunner of a morning, with the A’s sending the wildly talented slugger Yoenis Cespedes to the Red Sox for ace Jon Lester and Petaluma’s own Jonny Gomes, then trading Tommy Milone – who’d asked to be dealt – to the Twins for Sam Fuld. Gomes, who played for the 2012 A’s, felt he had unfinished business here, and he told me this morning, “I’m coming back for my ring.” There are a lot of ways to look at these deals, and at a quick glance, you might wonder why the A’s are dealing one of their top power hitters to obtain something...

Roster fallout: what happens now that Fuld is out and Milone is in?

Roster fallout: what happens now that Fuld is out and Milone is in?

Here's what happens to the Twins roster as a result of the trade. Outfield With the departure of Sam Fuld, the Twins are once again without a legitimate center fielder on the roster. This seems to spell out, in no uncertain terms, that Danny Santana will continue to get time in the outfield. Indeed, it seems like Eduardo Escobar is once again the team's backup in center.

Vargas takes Fuld's place on roster. — Rhett Bollinger (@RhettBollinger) July 31,...

Twins call up Kennys Vargas

Twins call up Kennys Vargas

Let's talk about this corresponding move. In a corresponding move to the Sam Fuld to Oakland for Tommy Milone trade, the Twins have called up slugging first baseman Kennys Vargas. Vargas has hit .281/.360/.472 in Double-A. More: Twins trade Sam Fuld to Athletics for Tommy Milone Vargas, who turns 24 tomorrow, is a switch-hitting behemoth out of Puerto Rico. Minnesota added him to the 40-man roster over the winter to protect him from the Rule 5 draft, and they've been rewarded for their faith. At this point, I have to assume that the Twins will go forward with Vargas taking plate...

Twins trade Sam Fuld to Athletics for Tommy Milone

Terry Ryan gets good value for fourth outfielder. Earlier this morning, Oakland traded Yeonis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester and Jonny Gomes. This opened up a spot in the Athletics' outfield, and as a result they've acquired Sam Fuld from the Twins. In return, Minnesota gets left-handed pitcher Tommy Milone. Milone, 27, has made 16 starts for the Athletics this season, posting a 3.55 ERA in 96.1 innings. He's under team control through 2017, and will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Fuld, who hit .274/.370/.354 with the Twins, heads back to the team that let him...

Tonight's NERD scores show the A's and Astros playing a moderately exciting game. The rankings find both lineups and Jeff Samardzija to be exciting, but they find Scott Feldman to be quite boring.

The #Athletics are looking at numerous OF options - including Sam Fuld, who made such a good impression with them at...

A’s in market for outfielders

Many folks on the A’s weren’t thrilled when the team let go of Sam Fuld early in the season, and wouldn’t he be a good fit right about now? The A’s soon will announce the findings of Coco Crisp’s MRI of his troubled neck, and Craig Gentry is on the disabled list with a broken hand. Yoenis Cespedes played center field Monday, and Josh Reddick is in center tonight. That’s not exactly the preference. So the A’s are in the market for outfielders. Susan Slusser on Twitter reported the A’s are looking at Fuld among numerous options, and you can bet the goal is to find a center...
