Athletics And Cubs Pull Off Blockbuster Trade

The Oakland Athletics are going with the "win-now" approach this season.  Multiple reports say the Athletics pulled off a blockbuster deal with the Cubs on Friday, bringing pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland.  In return, Chicago lands Addison Russell, Billy McKinney, Dan Straily and a player to be named later.  Russell plays shortstop and is considered a top-15 prospect.  He is also the top prospect in the Oakland organization.  Billy McKinney is the second overall prospect for the Athletics and plays the outfield.  Straily is a right-handed pitcher who went 10-and-8 last season in Oakland.  Samardzija and Hammel are a combined 10-and-12 this season in 34 starts.  Both pitchers hold ERAs under three.
