OAKLAND, Calif. -- Getting traded is tough enough on the adults involved, but just imagine the repercussions on the young children of professional athletes.

Twinsights: Sam Fuld not in the lineup after slow start for Oakland A’s

OAKLAND -- Sam Fuld had played in all six games for the Oakland A's since they reacquired him from the Twins for left-hander Tommy Milone. So, naturally, with the Twins in town today to open a four-game series against the team with baseball's best record -- since June 18 and counting -- Fuld is sitting. With Coco Crisp healthy and back in center, the A's have the option of flipping all-star outfielder/first baseman Brandon Moss over to left, which is what they're doing tonight against Twins right-hander Yohan Pino. In six games with the A's, Fuld has gone 5 for 23 (.217) with a .280 o......

Rays vs. Oakland, game 1 recap: Alex Cobb shaky, Balfour shakier

Rays vs. Oakland, game 1 recap: Alex Cobb shaky, Balfour shakier

It's so late. You knew how this was going to end as soon Grant Balfour walked onto the field in the bottom of the tenth inning, greeted by cheering Oaklanders brandishing "Balfour Rage" signs. They remembered the good times. These are not the good times. In a half-inning that seemingly took forever, Sam Fuld singled up the middle and then stole second base (his second steal of the night). John Jaso walked. Josh Donaldson walked. And while  Balfour managed to strike out Brandon Moss in front of a five-man infield, allowing Rays fans who still cared to exhale, the next batter, his old...

Derek Norris single off Grant Balfour gives A’s a weird win in 10

From Chronicle Staff Writer Susan Slusser at the Coliseum Things got a little weird at the Coliseum in the 10th inning on Monday. Former A’s closer Grant Balfour made his first appearance in Oakland since leaving as a free agent and the field-field fans went just as bonkers with the Balfour Rage as eve. Then, an opossum wandered onto the field. Tampa manager Joe Maddon was ejected. And during all of this,  former Rays outfielder Sam Fuld singled and stole second, then Balfour walked John Jaso and Josh Donaldson before Derek Norris bounced a two-out single past shortstop to give Oakland a...

Tommy Milone's role with the Twins going forward

Tommy Milone's role with the Twins going forward

What will the Twins do with Tommy Milone? Tommy Milone is a 27-year old left-hander who gets by on moxie. The career strikeout rate of 17.2% is downright Deduno-ish and the command isn't edging into the Carlos-Silva-of 2005 vicinity, so Milone's upside is fairly limited. But here's what makes him such a great get for Sam Fuld: he's a cost-controlled starter who will give the Twins 180 innings from the back of the rotation. The Twins have stashed Milone in Triple-A, as Minnesota's big league rotation of Phil Hughes, Kyle Gibson, Yohan Pino, Kevin Correia, and Logan Darnell will continue...

Twins trade Sam Fuld for Tommy Milone, sign Kurt Suzuki to extension

This year's otherwise hectic and blockbuster-filled trade deadline came and went yesterday afternoon without a big splash from the Twins, but they did make one trade and one non-trade by sending outfielder Sam Fuld to the A's for left-hander Tommy Milone and signing catcher Kurt Suzuki to a two-year, $12 million contract extension with a […]

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...
