The Oakland A’s are going to be sellers once again this year. It will be interesting to see if they are willing to trade their biggest chips. If I were running the show, I would trade almost everyone with value. But, I wouldn’t wait until July 31st to get things done. The best trade chips the A’s have are Danny Valencia, Josh Reddick, Khris Davis, Sonny Gray, Rich Hill, Ryan Madson, John Axford and Marc Rzepczynski. Let me make this perfectly clear, I wouldn’t trade Khris Davis or Sonny Gray without getting a huge haul for them. The Indians, Royals, White Sox, Mets and Giants will like be after Davis and Josh Reddick. A lot of those same teams (Indians, Royals and Giants) would likely be interested in Valencia too. Maybe the A’s can make a package deal for a lot of good prospects from one of those three teams. It was a master stroke to sign lefty Rich Hill to a 1-year deal. The A’s essentially rented him for half a season, hoping that he would pitch well and he has. The Orioles and Red Sox are really desperate for starting pitching and the A’s could stick it to them for Hill. The Tigers, Royals, Rangers, Mariners, Mets, Marlins, Pirates and Dodgers will also likely be after Hill later this month. Gray will have the same teams chasing him, but the price tag will be a lot higher than the one placed on Hill. The Tigers, Cardinals and Mariners will likely be after righty relievers Ryan Madson and John Axford. Lefty Marc Rzepczynski could also net a decent prospect for the A’s, as the Indians, Blue Jays, Royals, Astros, Marlins, Cubs, Cardinals and Giants could use a guy like him. I would also make Stephen Vogt, Yonder Alonso, Jed Lowrie, Billy Butler, Billy Burns and Coco Crisp available in package deals or by themselves. The A’s need to be busy this month.
