Wednesday came and went without the A's making an offer to any of their own free agents, and now all five can begin talking to other teams. Outfielder Josh Willingham is the most high-profile of Oakland's free agents,...

Willingham unlikely to return with the A’s

Outfielder Josh Willingham's agent, Matt Sosnick, told Joe Stiglich of the San Jose Mercury News that his client won't probably re-sign with the A's. “My best guess is he will probably sign a three-year deal, and probably not with Oakland,” said Sosnick. “I just don't think that's the position the A's are in right now.” Major League teams have until...

Trade Target – All of the A’s, apparently

Today on Major League Baseball Trade Rumors (MLBTR), there was a piece about how the Oakland A’s are willing to listen to offers on any of their players….except Jemile Weeks.  OK…setting aside Billy Beane’s incredible fascination with collecting and drafting 2B men in the past few years, let’s take a look at what they may have to offer.

All three of the Athletics’ starting outfielders hit free agency this offseason and with so much uncertainty surrounding the team's future, retaining the trio won't be easy. Here's the latest on the Athletics from Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle: Agent Matt Sosnick told Slusser that the A’s “aren’t going to make an offer” to Josh Willingham...

A's trade relief pitcher Magnuson to Blue Jays

The Oakland Athletics have traded right-hander Trystan Magnuson to the Toronto Blue Jays for cash.

Free Agent Name to Know: David DeJesus

Free agency is officially underway, although it figures to be a while until the Phillies get around to doing anything with players from outside the organization. Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Madson are going to be the first two orders of business, which means that any additions are going to take place after some time ticks off the clock. That's not a bad thing for the Phils, because...

A’s Will Listen On Anyone But Weeks

The Athletics are willing to listen to trade offers for any player except Jemile Weeks, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The A’s aren’t sure where they’ll be playing in a few years, so their spending decisions appear to be on hold as they await word from MLB on a potential relocation to San Jose.  Though Oakland GM Billy Beane isn’t shopping his players, he...

Athletics will listen to offers on everyone but Jamile Weeks

Earlier this week, we learned that outfielder Josh Willingham probably won't re-sign with the A's, and according to Major League sources close to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports, the A's will listen to offers “for anyone on the roster with the exception of second baseman Jemile Weeks.” The A's are on a “holding pattern,” according to Rosenthal until they hear from...
